Cumans have been brought up by many in the community, especially this bonus, without a clear consensus anywhere. Hence, this poll.
Cumans 2nd Town Centre requires a large initial investment and is risky to pull off on any map but Arena now that a meta has been established. Should the build time be reverted to the standard for all other civs?
- Yes. Reduce the build time.
- No. Keep the build time the same.
- Reduce the build time, but it is a fixed build time regardless of villager count.
Maybe revert but cannot be sped up by extra villagers. This also makes the stakes low
Just my thought…
Exact time might be able to be tweaked…
Yes, the feudal TC must have the standard build time.
Also a vill production cap in feudal would be nice (like in aoe3).
No, invisible caps are not organic
I like the third Idea of fixing the build time, as it makes it less punishing to go for it but also makes sure it can’t be exploited with a douche.
But I think it’s not enough adjustment. It still is very punishing to go for and the snowball potential if not punished is still too big.
I thought about a douche, but it’s super unrealistic for Cumans to pull off in 1v1 - the res you’d need, plus the fact your TC is going to have less HP when it’s built, and you need to get to Feudal to make it - plus the food requirements and wood requirements to keep them both making villagers and keep the forward TC up - it’s never going to be practical in games. At least, not from what I’ve thought.
I think there is a video of viper even pulling it of when it was new.
But I agree it should be quite easy to stop, but there is also only one strat against it, which comes to my mind: Defensive tower.
And in think these are the ideal conditions for a noob basher strat.
If you had a cap the trying to win in feudal would be impossible.
