I think most people would agree that if something doesn’t have a good purpose in the game then it shouldn’t be in it. With this in mind, I wanted to invite the community to post possible changes to useless cards that each civ has. I mainly play Spain so here are the cards that in my opinion need to be changed or tweaked in some way.
Spain’s contribution to team games isn’t the best, so improving their team cards would be a nice change that wouldn’t affect 1v1 because these cards aren’t used in 1v1.
- Team Explorer Combat: Changing this card to something with a little more use or punch would be pretty great.
- Team Archaic Soldier Training: This could be changed to include more units or add something else to make it better.
- Team Hand Infantry Attack: Hand infantry isn’t very popular in the game because ranged units tend to perform better. To make this card more useful it could be a good idea to buff the card or change it so it includes more types of units.
Spanish Square: This card isn’t very good in my opinion and doesn’t really complement Spain’s current FI build (I’m not saying that it should since their FI is already really strong). I would either change the troops it sends or change it to a unit upgrade card (for example a pike upgrade).
Tercio Tactics: I doubt anyone has ever used this card in the history of AoE3. I would suggest to change it to a unit upgrade card or make it do something different.
Colonial Estancias: This can have its uses but it’s very situational. Maybe add something to its effect or change it to do something completely different.
