The vetern and gurd upgrades for all ottoman units is gone.there is only imperial upgrade in age 5.In vanilla game ottoman units received 100% health/damage bonus in age 3,4 and 5(Veteran 20%,guard 30%,imperial 50%).In this mode ottoman units receive 75% health/damage bonus only in age 5.In the meantime my units remain same from age 2 to age 4.Also their plunder does not work(i killed enemy unit and didn't get any gold).
Their are many factions in this game and its great but it seems some factions are overpowered and some underpowered.
For example americas military with imperial upgrade:
cavalry deals 73 mele damage and has 1027 health.cost 2 population.
buffalo soldier 139 rng damage(3*cavalry)(seriously?)
sharpshooter 98 rng damage 30 range(this guy is some super sniper)
marine 41 rng damage 22 range
Now the ottoman military with imperial upgrade
janissary 36 rng damage 12 range(cost more than marine)
abus gun 81 rng damage 19 range
spahi 65 mele damage and 1404 health cost 3 population.
If you compare these charts you can easily see the imbalance in term of firepower.spahi are limited horse unit cost 3 population and still does lower damage compare to cavalry which cost 2 population and can be trained from stable.The buffalo soldier and sharpshooter seems like some uber super soldier that can only be obtained by cheating.This two unit are game breaker.
and how does marine deals more dmg and has more rng the janissary and cost less.
I really hope you will bring back the vanilla upgrade system for the ottoman.And some of the super soldiers needs nerfing
Ps:Is this mode compatible with The Ottoman Empire mode.
