Re: What do you find to be the worst unit in the default era

They should remove the lieutenant from the faction leader list. The faction is better off without that one. Besides, the default era has factions which do not have a leader with the leadership ability and they are pretty balanced... So, why not add the loyalist in with them? Some people, including ...

Re: The Undead and the bats taking all the gold in MP

What kind of map were you playing?

The scenario you described seems like a really big map. (Random generated? Cynsaun Battlefield?)

Re: Facts of Funny and Ridiculous settings series.

The biggest issue IMO is the smallfoot movetype, it covers too broad of a range of units- mages, spearman, bowman, thugs, most human units. Fortuneatly, I can modify whatever I want to, pretty easily, putting my money where my mouth is. So can anyone with an objection btw ;) Hmm :hmm: I always beli...

Re: The Uselessness of the Merman Spearman

How did this thread drift from the uselessness of the merman hunters spear line, to making a huge overhaul to the netcaster line?

Re: Facts of Funny and Ridiculous settings series.

Now things that bother me: 1. Horsman and Cavalryman resistances to blade and impact. I suppose they represent their armor (as evidenced by the more armored cavalryman having higher resistance), but why their armor gives higher resistance to impact than to blade, when the opposite is true for HIs? ...

Re: Facts of Foolish and Ridiculous settings series.

How can you strengthen their mobility on fungus when their movement penalty is only 1 already. Fungus teleporting? :lol2: Also some forests don't have much shrubs and bushes. I don't know why you try to make this game realistic, when it would only hurt it by creating balance problems and taking awa...

Re: Facts of Foolish and Ridiculous settings series.

Note that dwarves have usually low number of movement points anyway and they don't get better defense in forest. As for flavor explanation, I guess that being short they can avoid branches more easily than humans (doesn't explain why goblins get slowed despite being shorter than dwarves). Generally...

Re: What do you find to be the worst unit in the default era

For me "The Worst Unit Award" is a fight between ghost and heavy infantry. Both just cost so much given what they achieve. A scout is meant to be mobile and hold villages. If your opponent doesn't have any mages, or any other serious ranged units , then getting rid of ghosts is hard to do. Especial...

Except it kinda is when over half of your army is footpads, and the undead is in a disadvantage. :whistle:

Have top players tested the matchup with 4-2 at any point by the way?

Also what happened to 19 gold ghosts?
