As I have seen many people want Switzerland to be in WOL, but have failed to deliver a nice UA, I want to post this ability proposal (this is not a civ design). It is also a more supportive civ:
1. Old European Power: Switzerland was a small European power in the late medieval and early modern times. However, it diminished in power and eventually became a neatral state. This is represented by more powerful but archaic troops early, and they HAVE TO research a sort of early infantry arsenal upgrades before going III (represents their decline). These upgrades will counter a bit the better troops civs have in III. (hidden bonus: defensive III bonusses also available)
2. Swiss Mercenaries: The Swiss were known for their mercenaries. This is represented by your infantry having an ability to sell your troops for coin (at 110% of the original cost ?) (a HC card will make expand this for artillery and cavalry). This will help to supply your economy to research the early arsenal techs, and will help your economy when enemies are ahead of you in age.
3. Neutrality: Thanks to its neutrality, it can trade with everyone. Or, it can decide to leave its neutral position for once and claim the region as a new canton!
Switzerland can create crate carts that give resources to your allies (by converting into crates near their TC, or by being able to train crates). Maybe these carts trickle a bit of XP. OR, to not make this useless in free-for-all, it can proclaim the colony in III as new canton, giving you +15%hp and att and 15% gather rate, while it hurts allies with -10% in these areas (obviously you have no allies in ffa). Switzerland gathers very slowly from crates (to not use carts for itself), and starts with resources in its coffers at the start.
- slow advance to III
- cannot send crates from HC
