I encountered this mission today while playing through the Warchiefs campaign on hard, and this is probably the most difficult mission I’ve encountered so far in DE. I wanted to see if anyone else faced any issues with the tuning on this mission. For those that played the campaign before DE, this mission used to be Red Cloud’s War and involved defending railroad workers from Lakota raids. Before, the units that you would face were Club Warriors, Cetan Bowmen, Wakina Rifles, Axe Riders, Bow Riders, Rifle Riders, and the occasional Tokala Soldier. However, in DE these units became Pirates (400 HP Treasure Guardian version), Pistoleros, Revolutionaries (Skirmishers), Dragoons, Comancheros, and Stradiots. I believe these outlaw/merc versions spawn at the same rate as whatever units they replaced, which greatly increases the difficulty of the mission as I was getting hit by 2 Stradiots just 4 minutes in as seen below when I think they used just be axe riders:
Even worse, by 7 minutes in there were at least 6 Pirates (2400 HP!) on the map with Renegados not being able to counter them since they were the treasure guardian version and not counted as heavy infantry
Has anyone else faced problems with this mission, and do you think it needs to be reworked?
