I am so tired of some things of the game.
Before the patch, the meta in 3v3 or 4v4 was about build walls and build a wonder as fast as you can.
Now with the update, it seems another known tactic has arised. Basically, people returns to the stupid tactic of build an army of full knights and go to the landmarks.
They don’t want fight you, or get map control, or nothing. They just build 50 knights, and get to your base to fire your landmarks.
In case of the chineese it’s way worse. They build 50 fire lancers and they burn your entire base in a minute, without being able to do nothing.
Had a match, 4v4 where two dudes of the other team just were doing this. They built some walls to get time, and when we were fighting the mid they just come with knights and fire lancers to fire the landmarks.
If you build some walls, no problem, they will come with 2 bombards and then enter, and with the walls build time nerf, and open maps, it’s really difficult to wall your entire city so they don’t do that, and too easy to just break a part and flood your base with knights.
Basically, all games now are: english/french rush, or knights flood. We return to months ago, where people seems to only get fun sticked to these two tactics.
Yesterday I’ve played for 3h, and all games were trash. I’ve ended thinking about, more or less, 8/10 matches are boring. That’s a very raw number.
Talking about the 1v1, or 2v2 with a friend, all boils up to the same. 1v1 matches are rush matches, where if a french/english is in front, you know exactly what he gonna do (and for so, it’s so easy to counter), if a chineese, he will boom to get a thousand nest of bees, if a mongol, he will build just mangudai, etc…
2v2 is the same, almost all my 2v2 games are against french+english that build knights+longbows+rams to end the game in 8 minutes.
To resume, I am no longer getting fun with this game…
