Thing is, we don't want to be ''fully accurate''. Which is fine since this is a game and, mostly, that term isn't really historically serious.

I'm reading the various discussions about the Ottoman Empire that was a crumbling state, so it has an outdate military on the mod, ok true. But why does not the same logic apply to Spain? Spain started 1800 invaded by Napoleon; during 1800 lost a lot of wars and colonies and finished 1800 losing Spanish–American War.
Spain was op in age III but u are making more Op with your mod, i can't understand why.

Maybe quoting myself is answer?
"I think it is better to represent them from during their most succesful period. While one modern unit or so wouldn't harm I guess, (...) Also, I don't think that because the mod focusses on the 19th, it should only do the 19th. Do not forget that vanilla represented something like 1450-1860, and this mod seems to have kept that (this is why I like WOL so much)."  Balancing Spain should probably be posted in a seperate topic. I do have to admit I cannot play well with Spain  :razz: . I just love Imperial Tercios too much.

You're, once again, complaining about the balance of a civilization that hasn't even been released to the public. What gives?

You may be more kindly responding occasionally. Then i just saw statistics http://aoe3wol.com/europeans#Spanish and Batidors in action in a game.

But the updated Spanish haven't been released yet, I wouldn't yet dare to evaluate their performance, Spain was strong before, sure, but nowhere near one of our "OP" civs by any means... unless you're using that really old patch that has Batidores with the ridiculous speed bonus?

Will there be more voicing for the existing factions that have voiceless units?
