When people can (Stone) wall on Yucatan and can make my 21 pop double Stable Scout rush on Yucatan useless because literally. everything. is walled then it’s about time to nerf walls because you have to grave this game out of my dead hands when Walling and Booming have become Standard on Open maps.
I am not giving away this game to noobs who pick civ and Triple Palisade and even STONE wall on Yucatan just because they don’t want to learn 5 different feudal rushes and instead practice Drush FC or Wall FC and then get away with it.
On every tournament, you see nothing but full palisades on Arabia because this map script has gone from the REAL Arabia to a version where Trees Berries and Gold spawn almost on top of your TC (Yeah its a Writing style, its called Exaggeration) - Melee pathing being so bad that Scout almost do nothing, and have literally no chance vs a group of archers.
So please make this game challenging again and not allow anyone who picks only Brits, Drush Archers to become top 1000 by literally learning something blindfolded, without needing to adapt, game knowledge or any macro skills.
Oh and thank for the ruination of the nomad script… Now every resource is exactly perfect and you don’t even have to think where you have to dock, or where the to landlock is, or even think at all… Nice that they also removed Galley Micro <3
I mean I know that society is decaying each year, but that doesn’t mean that you have to make this game so braindead-easy only to appeal to the masses. I mean of course of you do that because all the devs care about is easy $$$ so they basically use the degeneration to just sell DLC’s with 2 civs instead of the usual 4, with the same price and no resistance from the community because - well Apple is literally selling a PC monitor stand for a grant and if they are limit testing, why don’t we? Am i right devs?
Oh and before you ask: If I had teammates that weren’t drooling and would make archers I would have gotten in by split seconds… But then again my Ally said, “Yucatan is a booming map tho” - and from that point, I realized the 58349th time that humanity is doomed.
I got in and was again greeted with another layer of walls, but this time I got to another enemy - got greeted with 4 TCs
I then just did what I always did, I just left the game because there was nothing to be gained here.
Increase Villager train time to 30 seconds and revert all Tower nerfs ever done to restore balance to this game again. Or make Walls so useless that you really have to consider whether to wall or not
