Bulgarians?? Unlimited shipments wtf

Thu Jan 03, 2019 8:34 pm

Please tell me they arent finished and or there’s some kind of bug. Because shipments can be sent nonstop and basically an army can be formed for free every 2 minutes. An unlimited amount of resources can be given from crates aswell.

The free shipment thing is a unique ability of Bulgaria. It does only affect a few cards though; without this ability the civ would be very UP. And only from year IV onwards they can get a lot of troops from cards; but it requires you to get there first (not that easy, as things get more difficult if you get raided). The unique is the only way to make this civ work (but it has other problems to worry about though)

Are you playing on non-expert difficulties? Maybe the shipment generation is a bit too high for the slower pace compared to expert level. IDK.

Yeah definitely still over powered. Their horses are resistant to everything and can be spammed taking down nations effortlessly.

This is true, but I think it is appropriate to do because of the lack to train military until age 4, which means early game they can get raided by early age raiding countries. But yes lol, the spasitel (literally called Saviors) are very godly, combined with Opolchenets, I killed 16 infantry with only a casualty of 2!!!

I have a fair amount of games on Bulgaria, overall the civ has a very unconventional playstyle where it basically goes from Zero to Hero and forces the player to play unconventionally to reach the god-stage called age4. For example abusing the infinite shipments to make an army, use Peasants who can reach 300HP with normal upgrades or ship free resources or use the Spasitel to raid due to them not having the usual malus against villagers. FF into Mameluks or Spasitel raid depending on situation is a fairly strange but surprisingly effective strat with good practice.
Just don't be lulled into a false sense of security, you cannot sustain an army on shipments alone vs competent players.
