The Dark Age needs to have a longer window

Thoughts. Too easy/fast to skip the dark age and nullifies many civ starting bonuses. What’s the point of having english vils with bow if you can’t even be attacked in 3 mins?

True. But I dont really do anything till fed anyways

At high levels dark age can go longer in hybrid maps. The need to take water asap have developed long dark age aggression with Spearmen to deny enemy fish… English vills are strong in this early stages because can land last hit from safe distance
