Sweden is overpowered again and needs multiple nerfs:
- Remove bonus Torp HP from Dominion. Reduce Torp HP.
- Nerf Torp gathering Hunts, Wood, Coin, Blueberries, Blackberries all at once.
- Move Infantry gun card from age 3 to Age 4.
Just look at this video. Drongo has already said Sweden in its current iteration is going to get nerfed, because the Torp gathering is just insane. And its so easy to play compared to any other civ.
Check the torp gather rates showcased in the video or go and test it yourself. Once torps have 30% more HP, which is usually the first shipment in Age 2, there is no way to destroy torps without them providing value. After 30 seconds, a properly placed torp has already gathered 10 wood. And some food. Or 9 coin and some food.
Torps pay back their investment way too quickly with how easy it is to replace them constantly, they have too much HP and since players started placing them inside trees and mines, they are even harder to find.
Age 3 Infantry guns destroy everything. The Infantry gun upgrade itself is only 250 food and 250 wood, which is way too cheap considering how powerful it is. The card to unlock it in Age 3 gives Sweden an overpowered Artillery unit backed up by crazy economy.
250 HP, 50 siege damage with huge aoe, attack just as fast as a Skirmisher/Musketeer, 22 range. With Arsenal upgrade the get 3,95 speed, basically the same as an Iroquois light cannon, but in Age 3. And they cost 300 food which is a no brainer for Sweden because they get easily more than 15 000 food from their berry cards.
