According to my previous post, Burmese is a civ with merely one early eco bonus, deficient archer line. If you play Burmese , you would expect yourself build castle and play UU，but now UU nerf a lot，especially in destruction ability.
To compensate this point, I think buff its siege a bit since castle age would be a great idea. Also add one more eco bonus on wood. Every Burmese players know what Burmese lack most is wood when you build a massive number of Arambai.
- Siege move speed +20%
- Wood last 30% longer
I suggest a lower monastery tech discount in trade off may be like 20%
This change enhance the mobility of siege so that infantry ,Arambai or even monks can make a good match combo with siege since castle age. Also the mobility of siege would make it a easier counter to archer.
I am strongly against the imp UT change. Arambai is still the signature of this civ. It has been already nerfed several times on its attack stat. Why the game just keep deprive the powerspike when nearly no one use it or complain it at all. I don’t think the vs archer +5at is attractive when it compares to other civ cavalry UT.
There a lot more choice just straightly strengthen there cavalry ability but not only for archer. Why Burmese UT is special, it is also effective on Arambai.
if you want to counter archer , just choose a paladin civ, choose persians with+2 attack since castle age, choose berber, choose turks with+1p armor since feudal, choose korean get free archer armor and then build war wagon in castle age.
Comparison to other imperial age UT
Malian : cavalry +5 at (650 food 400 gold)
Sicilians:+1/2 armor (500 food 400 gold)
Comparison to other castle age UT
Bulgarians: +33% attack speed (400 food 200 gold)
Imperial: Arambai, cavalry +6 attack vs building(650 food 400 gold)
There is a lot more better choice out there. Who will choose Burmese just because it can become a hard counter to archer or archer cavalry until the late imp then invent the UT for 650 food 400 gold.
One more special request, i hope to see Parthian tactics become effective on Arambai if this is not too op. I believe this is the only way to give meaning of Parthian tactics in Burmese.
Please don’t keep making Burmese featureless, Nowadays Spanish and Korean are always better choices. No one use Burmese anymore unless someone got it from random.
