wowowow... I'm delaying a bit too much with the balance sugestions, also I noticed you have updated the era like a pair of times since my last post LOL. Well, I got stuck a pair of days at thinking about balancing some Summoners units that are actually really overpowered (mostly Jinns and Rhamis) while Summoners and their advancements looks underpowered kinda un-atractive.

Actually I'm at Kharos balance (balancing factions from top to bottom, in the order that appears in the faction selection).

Also, I was going to coment that some units might need a new description such like Hidden Faces which can deserve a much better description than their actual one, and if given a time I can even help at some of those descriptions.

Sugesting something like this:
--> Hidden faces: A misterous unit that Sky Kingdom hires from a nation that is allied with Sky Kingdom but that hasn't enough strength to be a playable faction itself. Also could be recomend to mention the Sky Kingdom as the union of some lesser nations that united into one explaining why the variety of units.
--> In which Hidden Faces, Golems, Magic Eyes, Mu's and Calvalry Archers can be somehow relationated (even if one of those are supporting Kharos instead of Sky Kingdom)

--> The reasson why I mention Calvary Archers is due something that justificates how those Elemental Archers have Fire and Cold arrows (apart that I'm planning to sugest a Lv3 unit that can be named "Mystical Archer") for Kharos Faction. I will even sugest its stats.
-> I will explain in my notes why Kharos really needs lv3 version of Elemental archer, but basically it's because Kharos lacks of ranged apart of pierce or arcane atackers and in balance it's a problem meaning that Calvary Archers are really important to Kharos faction because of balance reassons (apart that Kharos has only Blade and Pierce in mele at lv1-lv2 units but almost no impact or arcane in the overall mele)

Also my feedback would take some days to arrive, but is basically a balance performance sugestion.

This has become a really awesome era! So many cool units and animations...

Anyway, some very quick comments (mostly about balance). I don't have a good feeling for the general power level in this era, since it seems to differ quite a bit from standard, so these are just things that struck me as weird while playing.
- I agree with IPS: The Djinn line is seriously overpowered (fast flyer, strong magical attack, good hp, drains, regenerates, various damage types and slow from lvl3... they have it all)
- I am less sure about summoners. Their versatility is pretty handy, having a precision or always hits (single) ranged attack, but they might need a small buff
- About destroyer piraflys: I found them to be a bit too close in function (and price) to nightmares, who are significantly better in combat in almost all situations (exceptions include fighting fire elementals). As a consequence, I used them only for flavor. I think it would be nice if they differed some more (even faster maybe, to put them more clearly into the scout role?)
- Another destroyer unit I used only for flavor is the bone beast. Having a unit with skeletal resistances is nice, but for a pure melee unit, I found its damage to be too low. It does fill the role of a tank, but with low defense and enough enemy ranged units with arcane/impact/fire attacks, it is not very long-lasting. I think it would be nice to either increase the damage slightly or improve its special ability: It could gain some max hp and/or damage when killing a unit, for example (this would also fit the description)
- The XP calculation for "all around" attacks is rather confusing. I had an enemy unit level up mid-combat, and I assume it works like this: For every target which is not the main target, XP is awarded to attacker and defender as soon as the first strike hits this particular target. Are there technical reasons for not delaying the XP rewards until the end of combat? In most situations, this won't matter, of course, but sometimes it does.
- I was a bit confused by the plague description: "... creates a unit identical to and on the same side as the unit with plague". This sounds like the unit will be identical to the attacker. Not sure if this is EoMa-specific or general Wesnoth. But it is super awesome to have zombie versions of all units!
- I saw the Hydra's triple strike work on defense on one occasion, contrary to the description
- The difference in power between levels is very large for some units. Some that I remember would be steamcopter -> mechanical dragon, possibly the cyclops mage lvl2 -> lvl3, grand summoner -> summons master
- The dwarven drones are a lot of fun, but I had the feeling they would be too much effort/investment to use in a tight matchup. Also, while some of the upgrades seemed very good in general (better blades, rotor, berserk, better armor), I found others to be of rather limited use (ranged attacks, furnace - this only gives illuminates, right?). I might have more thoughts about them at some point...

The Sky Kingdom is not the union of lesser nations, it is something different. More details about this faction will be included in the remastered version TLU as well as in other campaigns.
IPS wrote: I'm planning to sugest a Lv3 unit that can be named "Mystical Archer") for Kharos Faction
I agree with the concept of lvl3 Elemental Archer for the Kharos faction. Looking forward for some stats ;)

Thanks to your observations these units have been improved in 2.0.4
Xargon wrote:- About destroyer piraflys: I found them to be a bit too close in function (and price) to nightmares, who are significantly better in combat in almost all situations
Piraflies received hit and run ability granting them additional moves after attack. This addition can make them more useful tactically now. Hope this helps (units with the hit and run ability are able to bait front lines and withdraw to safe zones with ease).
Xargon wrote:- Another destroyer unit I used only for flavor is the bone beast.
This unit received damage buff. Moreover its bone collector ability has been improved and now grants +1 max hp per kill.
Xargon wrote:- The XP calculation for "all around" attacks is rather confusing. (...) Are there technical reasons for not delaying the XP rewards until the end of combat? In most situations, this won't matter, of course, but sometimes it does.
Good point. I have rewritten code of all area weapons to force experience calculation after a fight ;)
Xargon wrote: But it is super awesome to have zombie versions of all units!
That's the plan. ;)
Xargon wrote:- The dwarven drones are a lot of fun, but I had the feeling they would be too much effort/investment to use in a tight matchup
Some of drone amlas have been combined together, so this unit should be more pleasant to use now.

Well, those were all blatant facts. Isn't a surprise that both of us coinsided at most of things even if did not have talked each other.

Btw, a bit late but here is my feedback sugestion (also, some previous values were outdated, because if I'm right it was from Era of Magic 2.0.1 values. Still, the intention was to adjust it to newer values. There are a lot of considerations, new atacks, balance notes, coments, even new advancement for existing units, etc.

Some stuff needs to be reviewed with care and dedication, considering some are outdated stats values. But there are a lot of resistances reworks remplaced with regenerates (making regenerates a more common ability), etc.

Strong points of this:
- Reprices fairly all lv2, lv3 (and tries to for lv4 units)
- Includes ALL factions and each unit in the era.

Quick edit 1 (forgot to add this in the notes!):
---> Add to kamikaze gobling a 12-1 impact kamikaze +always hit atack as well, in order to not completely be useless againist too fire resistant units.

@IPS: the amount of feedback you have presented is outstanding :shock: Well, I guess implementing all of this will result in "2.1" release number. What I can tell right now is that I need time to make these changes, but from what I have seen in the file, about 80%-95% of things shall be implemented. Thank you for writing this! :D

There will be no updates this weekend, but expect some fireworks next week ;)

ForestDragon has made these wonderful EoMa jokes. Enjoy (the last one is my favorite)!

Did you had this issue? Any ideas, hints?

And now it's "Nominations Time"! :D
Some of you might notice that recently I have been heavily cooperating with a user ForestDragon. Thanks to his diligence, extreme attention to details, creativity and unbelievable gameplay-oriented analytic capabilities the Era of Magic has been risen to a much higher level than ever before. That is why I appoint him a new era maintainer! There were 2 other maintainers in the past - Espreon (a wonderful programmer who ported the era to the wesnoth-umc dev platform and run many maintenance tasks) and Alarantalara (lua wizard and code specials who did marvels to TLU's terrain code and animations). These two are one of the most professional people I have met here and now you are a part of this team, so congrats! ^_^

Nominations are over so it time for fun. Be ready for a new portion of EoMa jokes (by ForestDragon - more in spoilers) :lol:

Whoops, there is a mistake in the changelog. It should be 70 of course.
