I think TC and dock is a cool idea. Would be interesting to give docks a way to sort of defend themselves better on land.

And those images are nice, I like them a little better than the old ones. Way to save this idea from the archives. :)

so depending on a percentage chance, it can reduce speed of opponent infantry with throw net ability, will it work on cavalry?

If it's spell, then we could use Flesh and Blood category for allowing cast and RESISTED_BY_HP spec added - percentage chance to cast would be higher vs low HP units. Strong infantry/ weaker cavalry would have regular chance and very small chance for elephants.
I just don't know exact values (how RESISTED_BY_HP works - it was made for AoF mainly)
Miss chance dependant on speed is possible only for attacks.

I think that instead of not allowing attack and move some limiting values can be considered.
E.g. -3 or 4 speed, -5 power

as far as i know 15 hp is lowest amount below which ability with this tag has same chance as it usually has (in case of 100% - 100%, in case of 37% - 37%) and 50 hp is highest above which it has guaranteed miss (even in case of 100% chance ability).
and between those 2 values chance is slowly decreasing from normal on 15 hp down to 0 on 50.

It also works on actual hp of unit - so if you will down unit with let's say 200 hp below 50 hp than this ability will have chance to apply.

Thanks for explanation - exact chance is what I lacked in understanding.
Actualy DEFINE_UNIT_BIG_POWER_VALUE which is 50 in AoF can be defined for AoS differently.
