i'm not sure why a no name like yourself is so totally love with me that he needs to respond to my every post but im flattered <3One of the highlights of my day is logging on to AoEZone and like clockwork, Influenza is complaining about the devs/balance/pathing/the game in general. I've never met someone who plays so much, who hates the game so much lmao.
I think this patch is absolutely fantastic. They did a great job making a lot of tweaks to units, upgrades, and civs. I don't agree with every single change, but I understand the logic with almost all of them.
The fact is, we've accepted for years that the militia line just gets shredded by all ranged units and we're OK with that. Why? A champion has 1/2 the HP of a cavalier, archers still will deal with them fine, they're just not going to be hard countered by arbalests. They never should have been. This will actually force Arb players to use a meatshield, what a concept!
Interesting to see that you have assessed this patch as absolutely fantastic without even playing it yet but you do you dude.
