Re: Carrot Cup 2017! --Ongoing--

Eh, even when trying to concentrate more it still takes me 3-5 hours netto to finish my turn. This often leads to staying up a hour or two more because I can't play during work and I have other activities too. And even then I am barely able to finish the turn in 2 days brutto (since downloading star...

Re: Carrot Cup 2017! --Ongoing--

It's not like I am postponing playing my turn but rather playing continually but in small drops. I may be thinking about it too much which combines with me being able to play only in mornings and evenings as I can't play when in work. But OK, I will concentrate bit more so this tournament can end so...

1717/1869 with duneix ahead at start of his 17th turn. I was the first there to get to the centre towns but then those 2 mongolian archers appeared and I was rooted out of that sweet spot with four TCs. My other light cavalry managed to slip past the lines and with the help of ornithopthers managed ...

Re: Enemy waypoints

I can confirm this. Never thought much about it because nobody uses waypoints for any fine movement, unless using orc dragons. I am using it for the movement only in some PVE missions. In multiuplayer, though, I am used to place waypoints as marks of where to go or what to do there. Or rather what ...

Enemy waypoints IMPLEMENTED

I can see enemy waypoints. Just on few units, though, probably duneix is just not using them too much. One can sometimes see where workers can build. And one used to see where in fog enemy units can go but now it seems to be hidden. But not waypoints. Did I miss it all this time? Or is it a new thin...

Re: Production boost / Different turns for each player

If you had other towns or units with some far enough waypoints set in our game, General Brave, did they do double move, too? It should be now turn 4 but you may be on turn 5. Are those units already at tiles you were only planning to reach during this turn? I mean, is the player able to give command...

Production boost / Different turns for each player

In my current game with General Brave he has poison archer in turn 3. That should not be possible, their cost is 3. From what I have gathered from PMs he did set the production for that archer and set the waypoint for that town, only. He didn't expect it so soon but this poison archer got produced o...

Re: Fast Wagon OR Armored Wagon OR Big Wagon

Agree with Sunrise Samurai. Also i think that these improved wagons must be constructed (after research, different for each non-basic type) in either TC or Siege workshop. Not by workers. But still allow workers to build the basic wagons. Thus the tech will not upgrade the basic wagons but rather u...

Re: Heavy Knight Upgrade

Bit more armor, hp and damage for 3rd level of knight are OK but do not give it more speed. Being faster while having stronger armor just doesn't make sense. And upgraded knights with 6 speed would make all those lighter cavalry units soon obsolete. Why would one bother with hussars then? If any cha...

Re: area damage of ballista

Ballista is currently 2x 12/10/8. Catapult is 100%/50%(/25%) of 33 or 39.
I would be for nerfing ballista to 2x 12/6/3 (same 100%/50%/25% of full damage). Or at least to 2x 12/8/4 or so.

Re: Does AI Cheat?

Unless it got recently changed, AI can also use upgrades even when the match is a no-upgrades game. It only cares about its easy/hard setting and it defaults to "hard" (= use upgrades) when it replaces a player in MP game.
