Persian scout rush way OP now.
Don’t know for persian scouts but that balance change is curious as a Scout is meant… to scout, not to attack, he can, but it’s not its main purpose, so the fact he didn’t have automatic attack made sense.
make walls, make archers, make axeman. make army vs scouts. Having 5 scouts kill one villager the just stand there is dumb. plus it helps versus the horde of slinger rushing people out there!
So much trouble for the automatic attack? The scout is still expensive and weak, a pair of towers and the help of an axe are enough to stop them.
Only with Yamato can an effective rush be done.
I find the update interesting that gives the possibility of doing something with this forgotten unit.
