So the Shinobi have always been a weird unit, a Light Infantry with no multipliers (and thus could be seen as general-purpose). It was the closest thing to the Zouave before the Zouave was released (and later the Papal Zouave too). However, in the big Light Infantry nerf patch 3 months ago the Shinobi was given a large negative multiplier against Heavy Cav (but the Zouaves were not). This implies that the devs think the Shinobi should fill a less general-purpose role in combat, perhaps as traditional anti-heavy or KotM-style anti-light infantry? Either way, with the big nerf recently I was thinking they might be doing poorly enough on the battlefield that a little tip in the other direction would help, maybe by giving them a multiplier against heavy or light infantry (or maybe both?) to match their lowered damage against heavy cav. Their description does say “Good against infantry” after all.
What do y’all think?
