Hello @TaupeAphid6383, thanks for your report. Outlaws get a reduced buff in Industrial because Outlaw units gain 25% from the Fortress upgrade. This is intended for balancing purposes.


Thanks for your reply, but outlaws only get 20% upgrades in fortress age, look at my first screenshot, please fix it to 25% upgrades in age 3 and let it be 25%(III)+25%(IV). Thanks!@gmenyhart

Hello again @TaupeAphid6383! Allow me to correct myself from that earlier post;
Outlaws gain 20% (up from 15% for regular units) for Fortress/Veteran, when you research Folk Heroes or equivalent
Outlaws gain 25% (down from 30% for regular units) for reaching Industrial age (This is a free auto upgrade)
Outlaws gain 50% (same as regular units) for reaching Imperial age (This is a free auto upgrade)

This is intentional, as 5% from Industrial has been allocated to Fortress instead.
Hope this helps!

Thanks for reply again, but for regular units, the Fortress/Veteran upgrade is also 20% not 15%, so it’s less 5% than normal units. Please check it again. It should be 25%(III) + 25%(IV) +50%(V). Thanks! @gmenyhart

Oh… you’re correct. My apologies, we’re tracking this issue now internally. :+1: Thanks for your continued patience!
