Topic Subject:Has anyone tested the french patch?
posted 02-18-06 01:21 PM EDT (US)         
I was just wondering if anyone began a game as french, and deleted one coureur to see how it affects them. It would be interesting to see the results.

Why? Until FF+mercantilism+mercs is weakened Germans and spanish own them easy. Theyre not the strongest civ!

French are good, but as Bell pointed out to me on ESO the top 10 players main civs are germany and spanish, with only one guy as french. So Germany and Spain need nerfing too. It'll be interesting to see what ES decides to come up with.

Wait, just because the top 10 players like Spain means they need nerfing?

no spain doesnt need nerfing, mercs needs to be nerved, and not just 20 seconds.

btw all top 10 players like OP strats and civs, why do you think they dont play port? because they dont like the portuguese flag?

Spain definitely doesn't need nerfing. People having success with a civ doesn't deem nerfing. Their civ bonus is just faster shipments which means it wears off approaching Age IV, whilst other civs bonus remain throughout the game.

Ahh, but Spains wardogs can keep you from building your trading post easily. Then they get all the tps, and all the good treasures, while russians will really get nothing out of this.

@F1RE_FLY - Actually, I did this pretty much as soon as I heard French will be losing one cdb =) Keeping in mind I am by far not the best player out there, but also keeping in mind that I did a few test runs with one less cdb, I have noticed a maximum 20 second slowdown from the regular French start. I typically send 4 cdbs to hunt right away and get two to unpack the crates. Now you can just send three to hunt and two to unpack the crates, which for me ultimately resulted in advancing about 15-20 seconds later than usual =)

    You can actually mod techtree.xml to make it like the patch. I did, and now it's balanced, but Otto's kinda suck vs. mass cav /xbows now.

    I am not complaining about french being OP.

    I only want to know what the new patch will be like.

    The french change is the only one that we can currently try out. So unless you want to try making merc shipments take longer or rearranging the cassadore cost(and playing online), just answer my question.

    P.S. A LOT of noobs play spain. They are the "standard" civ.

    spanish own now and will after the patch, nothing will change. The thing with spain is that you HAVE to be aggressive to utilise their bonus. If you sit back then your faster xp counts for little in the end.

    So spanish arent gonna all of a sudden start owning and be OP people will say this because they are real solid early game, they will be counterable like all civs, same as french are counterable.

    Spans and German seem the best atm to a lot of people post patch 1.05 but in reality there will be a hundred different strats that will come up and people will be havin a big cry over the civ that suits that strat, people just need imagination and if they dont have that(like me) then they should just play the game with people they know and like and stop having a big old cry just because they aren't as good as everyone else.

    p.s this is waaaaaaayyyy off topic sorry just refering to some comments in the post.
