Hi guys, I wanted to know your thoughts about a possible solution for Khmer farm bonus OPness.
I’ve both read here and heard from a friend, that khmer don’t have one farm bonus but two:
i) they dont need buildings to deposit farm food
ii) they deposit the food instantly (vills dont carry food)
One possible solution is to eliminate ii) so vills still should have to collect the standard farm food before depositing it to the bank (10 / 13 with wheelbarrow / 20 with handcart).
So even though I cant tell if this is the final solution it also makes khmer more vulnerable to raids. Since in the current balance villagers don’t maintain food before depositing it, when khmer eco is being raided, they don’t lose food if the farmers are killed, giving another indirect eco boost.
But, if they are forced to keep the food as any other civilization, their vulnerability to raids is the same as other civs.
Do you guys think this could be a good fix?
