I haven’t downloaded it yet, but I’m still playing the game, so I’m looking forward to seeing what they’ve done. The new large maps could be cool, and I’m intrigued by what “new hotkey editor” means. Maybe we can hotkey buildings to select them without changing the map view? And maybe, dare I hope, we can hotkey unit formations?
Anyone have a french early game that doesnt hurt their late game? Right now im using settlers as a standing army with pioneer upgrade and blunder/greatcoat.
Then I just power to age 2/3 with code napoleon and advanced mill + gold card to get the ranged unit def card, range attack boost card. Age 3 I take skirmishers, age 4 musketeers, and make the French Grenadier force at the church.
Its just early game all I can see shipment wise are the spearmen and crossbows, but I dunno if its really worth it to waste shipments on those when I can use free settler cards to power to later ages where france is useful.
