I am a newer player here, I’m not going to pretend I’m super knowledgeable, so humor me.
In my first game vs the Maya playing as the Britons, I had such a bad experience, and this was before they got the new skirmisher upgrade, that I now refuse to play them in 1v1 when I am British, and I feel like this is one of the few truly broken match ups in the game, I am not saying this is a fact I am saying that this is how I feel, so please hear me out, and lets discuses this for augments sake.
Basically in my first match up everything I did and tried, ended in eagle warriors, and plumed archers having no viable counter that I could find, ever ranged unit I built was rendered 100% ineffective by eagle warriors, I also found it literally impossible to block them from getting to my archers/skirmishers, and any amount of champions I built would be killed by there archers, I tried scorpions as well as catapults to and the same thing happened.
Here is my problem with this match, I feel like the Maya have every possible advantage over the British, I feels like I’m playing vs the goths, but with the best archers, and now skirmishers in the game, I would play vs goths any day over the Maya; further more Eagle warriors seem to be comically broken in this match up countering almost every unit I can create, only a small hand full of unites seem to be viable that kind of, sort of, counter them a little, unless they have archers, in which case most of theses unites become useless’ this is not mentioning that they now have possibly the best skirmishers in the game now.
I am not saying that this is all facts its just how I see the match, and I welcome any explanation or comment that any one may have, but when I think about this match up I can not come to any other conclusion, I play an archer race with little options besides archers, and the enemy has a race with better archers, among the best anti archers unites the game, and now possibly the best trash unite in the game, I can not in any way see how this is an even match, I feel like I am out gunned on every level, please help lol.
