Although this should probably in the WARCHIEFS discussion...I dunno why its here.

Anyways, I just read that the HOT AIR BALLOON will be PERMANENT in TWC. WOW! so, I can basically just set it over my enemies tc, or barracks, and see what he/she produces? Cheap...

Maybe spyglass will be permanent...

I like the sound of HAB tho. I liked it anyway but this is just icing on the cake. The problem with it is that you never know when to send it.

Well, with the current card you can make lots of balloons in succession, so you can position one where you intend to attack to spot the enemy army, then a minute(?) later put another one at the enemy base to see what reinforcements he's getting. With the new card you'd have to move the single balloon, which will go much more slowly, and it might not get to where you want it in time. Looks like swings and roundabouts to me.

This sounds a bit OP to me. Who won't want constant LOS on the enemy front?

I wonder if they'll give the guys in the balloons something to shoot the enemy balloons with?

It's World War 1 all over again!

Tep, should be, but a good discussion is going on so for now it can stay.

Anyway, yes it is permanent but has also changed. In orther words, it is MUCH slower and has a smaller LOS.

I really doubt anyone above rookie level will use the new balloons. Settler cards, resource cards and military shipment cards will still dominate.

But it is cool that they increase wood gathering HC cards to +20%. Also some of the other new Warchiefs cards seem really powerful like turning pikes into Rods or streelets into musks.

Aerial bombing did happen within the AoE3 period - just! Austrian balloonists dropped bombs on Venice during the 1849 siege.

Wasn't very effective, though, as the bombload must have been extremely small.

HAB are still invulnerable. I think its best use will still be to spot for monitors.
