welcome. I need one important tweak.
where you can contact the developers with balance changes?
I know there is some site, or channel or something where you can contact those pple, for balance tweaks.
was that on discord?
or are they reading these forums too? I dont think they care much about those posts here.
PLEASE give the kipchaks +1 base damage. so that they have 9 dmg instead of 8.
they were HEAVY nerfed since they came out. lost a lot of hp and rate of fire.
and they WOULD be really fine and good, if you give them 9 dmg instead of 8.
the problem is, that without bracers, they lack damage and range.
and the lacking range, COULD be fine for them, cause they play an different role. more close ranged damage. but the dmg on close range SHOULD be way higher. just 1 dmg more.
cause I see it in my own games, and even viper said that, that their dmg feels to low. and it is rly true. they are good vs pikes, but they need very long for killing infantry, and for palas extremly long. even if you have 30 kipchs. you cant oneshot a pala? with that mass arrows? it is nonsense, and plays itself strange.
other archer lines feel stronger, and can kill a pala quicker.
so they feel very weak for an archer line. cause of bracers lacking.
give them 1 base damage more, for just increase their use.
keep the range as it is, if u dont want them to be out of control. but they lack 100% damage and feel a bit weak. just a bit.
even when they are massed, you cant always see/feel their value.
their time frame and kiting is fine and nice to play.
but the dmg is RLY low for an close ranged archer. they need one base damage more, and the unit would be fine.
they lost already rate of fire, hitpoints and stuff. so they need a bit of tuning. and one damage should not be op, but should feel a bit better.
PLEASE FIX THAT.
play the unit, and you will feel that it is a bit weak for an castle unit.
the old version was really good. the original one. but you overnerfed it.
giving them one arrow back was good. one damage more, and they are totally fine.
and the problem is, cumans need this unit. it should have more value on close range.
especially with that mass arrow volleys.
an pala should not survive 100 arrows.
