unit: net thrower man - ACCEPTED

Throws a net on the victim with 50% chance.
And if hit than the unit will be locked to tile so cannot move, and cannot attack.
And after 4 turns the net dimnishes. (If the unit still alive..).
Not removable by other means.

Can be done with the new effect engine created for the poison archer.

the net? better as a Roman Gladiator. I don't remember the name,but he's right and throws the net. BUT he is without reservation. what kind of a man with a wooden spear.

I think the unit should be only immobile, but able to attack, because it would be really overpowered that way. Imagine throwing a net at an elephant, hoplite or catapult.

Maybe we need an icon for the net-thrower? :)

Thats a really great idea. I think he should be able to attack, but have very weak attacks. About the same as the builder. Also there should be some units that are immune to the net. Such as elephants, flying units, and so on. (By the way, nice image cool guy) :)

netted units stats reduce to half?

elephant, spartan, and non-flesh-and-blood units are immunr.

Thank you!

I kind of like the immobilizing. But maybe for the larger units like elephants and mounted stats are halved. IDK. Definitely impeding effects.

Perhaps the amount of time you are trapped depends on the strength of the unit. So elephant trapped for 1 - 2 turns, etc for the other units. And gladiator dude is rhetori or something. As for the unit, what range should he have? 2 or 1.

I think two woud be good. Other wise they will be really hard to use. And a bit useless against any normal speed unit. :)

So the net cant trap elephants, ships, buildings and it will have 2 damage

Elephants, ships. That would be a huge net. ;) What about Trebuchets?

Maybe mounted units will only have 20% chance to get caught in nets

I think we should increase the range to 3. Is there a way to make a unit trapped by a net where other friendly units cannot pass through the units square? Kind of a like a building that is being built.

I think have a net trap chances only and not all they attack was neted

Then 1 attack because it would have hurt if a heavy net is thrown on someone

100% chance to trap enemies would be too strong

Maybe 50% in infantry unit and 25 % in calvary chance to trapped enemy
