Topic Subject:unit upgrades
posted 11-29-05 03:06 PM EDT (US)         
does anyone think that unit upgrades are too expensive.. i mean, when u age from age 2 to 3. u get canons and some other good stuff. and musketeers cost only 200 G and 200 W to upgrade.thats good. But when u age from 3 to 4. u already have to spend 2000 F and 1200 G to upgrade and then u have to upgrade units, for example skirmishers, they cost 1000 W and 1000 G. thats way too much. if ur opponent stays in age 3 and makes units for all that resources, the 2000 F and 1200 G u need to age4. 3000 W and 3000 G that u need to upgrade units. For that resources he can make a huge army and kill u as soon as he sees that u have aged to age4..
What im trying to say is that unit upgrades in later ages are too expensive

I'm pretty sure that upgrading your skirmishers in age 4 costs 600 of two resources, unless it is a unique upgrade. In age 4 you often reach the population limit, and then it's nice to improve your units. A suitable price if you ask me.

I think the real problem is that its too cheap to age up. The unit upgrade prices are reasonable because once you up them, the pwn non upgraded units. Example:

2 Skirms vs 5 Vet Musketeers = Win for the Musketeers

2 Needle Gunners vs 5 Vet Musketeers = Win for Needle Gunners with time still for a cup of tea.

I like the upgrade costs. In AOE2 I would find that I would just upgrade everything I could because it was so cheap and everyone else would do the same. Now, upgrading is a big investment so you spend the money on your main few units in hopes to counter the other player's main units. Adds a bit more strategy AFAIK.

well the money for the upgrade from vet skirms to needle gunners or voltigeurs would pay for 15+ skirmishers, meaning that they wouldnt even get hurt in a battle vs the vet musketeers.

but still, in a close battle, the upgrade would allow you to gain a decisive upper-hand, and would also save you resources in the long run.
