No one wants to fight uphill no matter if enemy units are Tatars’ or belong to any other civ.
This bonus would be so much more interesting and effective this way.
Units on higher elevation attacking Tatars’ units wouldn’t deal 25% more damage than normally and Tatars’ units would deal standard amount of damage attacking from downhill instead of dealing 25% less.
This would produce a unique gameplay with Tatars where you could storm a hill like it’s an equal elevation.
Good idea, but not for Tatars. Current Tatars bonus is in-line with their pseudo-historical accuracy. Tatars are Cav+CavArchers.
Cav attack better, when is charging downhill. Its never good thing charge uphill.
Your bonus will be good for some infantry civ, maybe related to mountains. Not for Cav.
I also think it could be possibly OP. It will take away whole micro-intensive aspect of early scout fights. Probably better will be just part of this bonus - unit dont gain bonus damage or dont have penality to damage fighting uphill.
The game is not meant to be fully historically accurate.
We’re close enough to historical accuracy.
First is balance and fun gameplay then you can argue historical accuracy. Limiting your possibilities just because of that is a waste. I hope not only imo.
It still close enough - hill related eunique bonus.
I don’t think it’s reasonable to give any other civs such a great bonus while Tatars stay with this mediocre but similar bonus.
It would take away necessity for micro? Completely disagreed.
You would still want to get on the top of the hill with Tatars to get hill bonus damage so you lose less hp / finish the fight faster.
Then it doesn’t create that unique gameplay - it would be just like now - slight advantage that you cannot utilize, because it would still be bad to take a fight from lower elevation.
The whole idea is to get interesting and unique gameplay.
rofl because tatars are winning tourneys as it is? they’re an A tier faction? rofl dude… so what if they have a “bonus” in hill orientated scout fights? then they can have something cool for a B to C level faction…
it will still be worthwhile to micro your scout because otherwise the tatar will have a bonus fighting downhill when he naturally tries to get on top. that would add a whole new resilience dynamic
This seems to make hill unimportant for Tatar players. It idea just makes the game more boring, since it eliminates the fighting for the hills. This just limites the strategic option you have in the match. Thats really makes no sense to me.
I see many positive respons in this thread. Seems like i am missing something. But i have no idea why.
Let me further explain, cause I I think I know how you expect it to work and where the misconception is.
Make Tatars’ civ bonus “Units negate disadvantageous effects of fighting uphill” instead of “Units deal +25% damage when fighting downhill"
It doesn’t change the fact that Tatars’ units still do receive the standard 25% more damage output when they are fighting from the higher elevation.
Which means Tatar player does care about hills, which give them advantageous bonuses. If Tatars want hills then their enemy wants to prevent Tatars from securing it. Therefore the enemy will put castles or armies on the very top of the hill.
I find the current bonus dull - it doesn’t change anything about the gameplay. You can only count on enemy misjudging the situation but you cannot be the one that utilizes your own bonus.
No matter if you had this +25% damage output from higher elevation you would still do the exact same thing.
