Broken German strategy

Tue Jan 22, 2019 4:57 pm

Just had a match, made 13 villagers, 1 barrack, 2 outposts, and 2 krupp factories. In the 23min of the match, got 15 falconets left (some died) all for free. Didn't even need to pass de 13 villagers mark, those were enough to get to capital age and make some landwhers to defend. Easy win. Some crate cards, some units cards, and gg.

The issue is, how cannot be broken to win a match with just 13 villagers, and at least 15 FREE cannons. Falconets are good, because of their armor and attack.

Why 2 Krupp factories? Its just too much.

"Oh then rush them", yes, but they still got uhlans with every card, and that makes defense lots easier. In fact, got rushed, but was easily defendible.

Just the simple concept of 15 free cannons is OP. Perhaps max 1 krupp factory?

Will that issue be taken care of in the next patch?

Thanks :)

Remember, only 13 villagers are enough for a little army to defend 15 cannons. 13 villies, 15 free cannons.

One game doesn't mean much from a balance standpoint. What civ were you playing against?

Against a falconet swarm, you need a cavalry swarm. That strategy of yours is very flawed, if you allow me to say. Any raid against your villagers and colony could have ended your game, especially with Germany, when population administration is essencial for their playstyle.

Another idea for a future patch would be, that you have to pay to rise the limit of cannons, like the ottoman settler limit, that also can be enhanced in the mosque.

or maybe the number of cannons should be limited in general.
