Yeah.... It's a game that's not appealing to me because of factors that could be changed.Septafolia wrote: Repeat to yourself "It’s just a game, I should really just relax."
There's too much to this game you're taking too literally, and things that wouldn't work for balance reasons or just overall consistency. This is not a good game for you to play if you're going to get so upset over historical accuracy.
Having said that, the modernization of old civs is a work in progress. In the next patch, Chinese Banner Armies will be renamed and their mercenaries will be updated. Li Hongzhang will be replaced with Empress Dowager Cixi, if that doesn't offend your butt hurt protective Chinese male ass. In the future they'll probably see further modernization.
Really.... What don't I take seriously(when I'm almost always not serious every single moment of my life). You kidding me? Most of what I have written essentially just models the path of the Chinese civilization in this game to mimics Japan's. It wouldn't be out of balance, OP, or lack of consistency, as the game already has extreme gaps between time periods of the representation for the civilizations. What I have written ACTUALLY TIES INTO the greatest consistency FOR THE PERIOD OF THIS MOD and for this particular civilization. Qing dynasty. Which most of what I have written is very much so related to this era. Over historical accuracy? Bro I bought the game and played it for like 2 years and it has been in my possession for like over 10 years now. I played all the civilizations of the base games and I think the point of lv 40 for all of them. This mod is revitalizing the game for me. But at the same time, it's consuming like you all have wrote and the team for this mod is split on different projects. So there will be unfinished aspects at this point in time when I am writing about it.
Empress Dowager Cixi is a fine choice. The real reason I disliked the Xiangru is I have no knowledge of them(so please provide that for me), they replaced the Arquebusiers which I loved to death with my Changdao Swordsmen combo(Territorial Army), and how I dislike hearing a Chinese woman kill and die in this game(I'm a hypocrite on this though for 'European' settlers,when they die it sounds like a moan to me instead of a groan/grunt). I wrote about that in my post. Can't wait for the evolution. What I have written this entire post for, duh. They could have made Yuan Shikai, or even Puyi as the representative. Empress Dowager Cixi is a good choice. She's a capable leader.
