Whats with all the treadmill crane tinkering?

I dont get it? Are those worthwhile changes?

Seems like real random, byzantines britons etc get it, sicilians teutons removed?

Whats the justification?

Death Match
(20 characters)


They are not random changes, they are deadly [pun intended]
Malay, Byzantines and Britons are weak in Death Match, Teutons and Sicilains are strong, so, as Franks, Slavs and Khmer last year, they lost Treadmill Crane to get a slower start

I’m dying inside now.


it’s for deathmatch, deathmatch is started in the post-Imperial age with all techs researched, so it influences the start heavily.

One time techs like Sicilian or Burgundians have to be really awkward on DM. If you spawn a ton of free Sergents from the getgo which sounds busted
