Thoughts on the Japan Rework

I think the change to the Ashigaru musketeer shock infantry multiplier is good however, there should be a change to the card “close combat” to compensate. Close combat still gives them a +1 multiplier against shock infantry giving them a 3.6 multi against shock infantry which may be a little high. It could be good if the card gets nerfed to a +0.5 shock infantry multiplier to compensate for the buff.

I like the Nanban trade card but I don’t think it is worth an age 3 shipment. With the cost it should be worth 1700 resources (cost of card + value of age 3 shipment) but 500 export can only get you maybe 700-800 resources worth of units. It may be nice if it got buffed to 800 export. 800 export armies are worth around 1400 resources which seems like a reasonable amount of consulate army to get from a card worth 1700 resources.

I think the Azekura card has nice art but I do not think it is worth more than 600 wood when making shrines. The 20% hp has to save at least 5 shrines for it to be better than 600 wood (since you can make 5 with 600w without kami) It may be good to add shrine wagons to it like dominions. Maybe 3 shrines wagons worth 375w with the 20% hp.

Interesting note about the revolt card is that the monastery outlaw tech gives the wandering samurai treasure guardians you get for villagers +30% stats so if you revolt it may be good to get that tech.

Also thank you devs for making dojos rebuildable. I rather like the building.

Anyways I’m curious to hear all your thoughts on the new cards.


Agree with the ashigaru multiplier it’s a bit too high with the card though they do lack a traditional dragoon I suppose.

The export card is terrible for it’s huge cost.

Azekura card isn’t bad, like building hp card it can delay the enemy every second they waste sieging a shrine is buying you time.

I just cant believe that they took away -%5 gather of the Japanese Shrines. They wanna kill every old civ wtf. This changes of making civs worse are so sad.
Japan eco its one of the worse i think, even in treaty.

The Japanese need a tea export card。Nanban trade card is too weak

The shrine eco nerf was a must because it made the average supremacy Japan a constant cat and mouse game of sieging shrine while the Japan turtles into Ashi Flaming arrow combo.

Maybe imperial eco upgrades could boost shrines for treaty purpouses

Developers give the ashigaru musketeers immortality and 30 ranges for yumi please, they are too weak units.

While you’re at it give shrines a ranged attack, let vills hide in them and buff the HP to that of a castle.
