They have finished updating all the musketeers and skirms in the game with unique skins except the Spanish ones because they don’t have any updates for them. They could rework the Spanish musketeers and in this way it would be more attractive to play them at 2 years old and especially as a team.
I have always wanted to see the Spanish arquebusiers in the game, which historically would correctly represent what a Tercio was.
i think the soldado FI brought spain into japan levels of bad tastes of community for start, and because so many spain mains lamed the everloving shite out of that stupid build for months, the community is somewhat hesitant to reintroduce more mechanics like that.
also as a port main, excuse me ignored? pretty sure you got a card to outboom me on 2TCs in every single deck plus a variety of new natives, mercs, and redo old cards like the age4 pikes last year. hardly ingored. the only really bad thing spain has suffered is the every changing value of spanish gold and the nerf to logi which did kill 1v1 play (common in team games tho)
Ports got functional organs after 15 years and a trickle thats worse than everyone elses vill shipment till age4-5. and lost cards to get even worse replacements sans 3organ. and this patch get net nerfs to only age3 merc shipment and late game musk (well trade off). spain compared to manyu civs is hardly forgetten. and the entire time has been a top or viable civ in ladder and win rate accross the elos. hell you are even better in teams thx to changes like team falcs. the only civs id say get ignored in last year truly is russia until now.
People in these types of threads tend to be so biased and short memory, you getting more buffs this patch and also got content last year. hardly ignored, just in rotation amongst 22 civs
But several main players from Spain may seem biased in individual comments because Spain, despite having been obtaining new strats and fantastic cards, have seen their strengths of their classic FF nerfed again and again with nerfs to dogs, spanish gold…
And when they could execute new broken strats like the logist, archaic FI, the spam of soldados in haciendas… They were seeing how they were nerfed on the ground.
In my case I’m glad to balance, and more things as easy to execute soldados (haciendas) and later Chile rev…
The skill should be rewarded.
And I totally agree with you in your comments. Portugal has received less love.
I would disagree about mediocre units. spain gets musketeers and can double card their hussars. With 400w you could easily go 5v 4v and have a solid eco really quickly for minimal effort.
Its just that they don’t get a real difinitive unit that sets them apart and don’t have a lot of siege options. If you go bow-pike its definitely gonna feel underwhelming, ive never advocated for that style
If I really want to commit to age 2 play I’ll happily load up those cav cards. I wont use the hand infantry cards at all. A lack of a skirm type worth using is a bit rough if an oppo has ranged cavalry
i mean arguably we have unction, corslet and advanced arsenal, its just a lot of hoops to jump through. I do agree that its not a perfect cov for 30 minute age 2, but definitely with 400w it would be really solid
In 1vs1 you will never be able to use unction (at high ranks) and neither will you be able to use a corselet because even if it is a free improvement, you need to do the church, send a card and it slows down your movement speed, all this is impossible at age 2. I have always seen it a poor improvement.
