Hello. I wanted to ask you for a long time what do you like about France? She is weak with other nations only if the settlers are fast.
Bug (or just me):
I noticed a bug in France, for the 4th epoch they have heavy arrows that become stronger when away from the urban center, but when I move them away, nothing will change. Even built 3 city center does not help.
The same problem has become a Haitian. On version 1.0.11a this was not, but on version 1.0.11b it became.

Distance auras have been disabled for now, as there was unintended behavior that made them too strong.

I've been playing France recently, and overall its in a pretty good spot. Pied Noir cost only 100 food which gives you more potency early on, and the ability to have Royal Upgrades on all units gives you good potency later on due to your flexibility. Also Cuirassiers are still good.
Try the classic French Pike+Xbow(Ranger) rush, it's pretty potent. Otherwise, FF into Cuirassier spam is lethal.
