I've had this question come up to me from friends multiple times, and I have really no idea what to say.

I know they modify income rate, cooldown rate, etc, but by how much? The +1 through +20 numbers are a bit vague. I can see it adding to income, but how does, say, +20 affect the other stats?

They increase the amount of resources that you start with.

Basically they make it better for your opponent. Bearing in mind I played against a noob, was a few minutes from killing him (with an army i spent 30 mins creating or so v his 3 fire ellies, 2 rukhs and level 2 dakhla) and the +10 handicap I'd given him allowed him to raise an army - from the grave you could say - and beat me, you should be careful about using them.

Lol yes, I know it makes it easier for the opponent.

Sorry, perhaps my wording was unclear. I was hoping to get more precise detail on what handicaps do. I.e. What does +20 mean in terms of altering cooldown times (one of the things handicaps effect).

Thanks for the replies though.

Oh right. Well I don't think we can really say for sure. Ask Greypawn'd be my advice in Questions for BHG.

For every +1 it increases the economic bonus of all other players by 5%.

AFAIK it increases the economic income rate of your opponents by 5%, and also lowers cooldowns for spells/powers by 5% and increases unit production speed by 5% (if the in game tooltips can be trusted).

Those are 5% per level, so level 10 would be 50% increase on all those things, be careful with that :P.

I havn't tested it, but this is what it says in game.
