holy crap, vinci is getting killed here. i'm having enough problems as it is without my units getting reduced this much.

I'm glad Vinci got fixed. I'm a coutl player and I welcome the change

Not sure about the coutl fixes though. Eagle bombers needed more health, but their range was a concern for me. 5% attack?! I guess I'll have to play and actually use them before I post any more judgement. Doesn't really sound like a reason yet to build a coutl airforce when raiding with jags is so much more efficient.

Sun idol range, I guess it was needed, but they are.... so....slow.... Gonna have to think of a new strategy. Do idols fit in a fane? Maybe I can drop them down in the thick of battle since the range took such a nerf. Oye...building attrition.... not gonna be pretty. Guess it's an army of death spheres and storm disks from now on.

NV, Good to know

Storm, either way its still a minor buff(I'll take it anyway). Actually, I just played a quickie against the AI and they did have more survivability, the additional HP really helps. Didn't "feel" anywhere near as powerful as the air destroyer though. But at least they were not all dying off on me. I guess as a role of circle/mine killer they will fit nicely. They do have decent knockdown against infantry though, never noticed that.... I sent a few in with some jags to harass and they did their job well, no real complaints. I just have to get used to using them I guess.

The range on the Idols is hella noticeable now. They don't really feel like they are worth the cost against Vinci anymore, even if I popped their shield up when I could. If seemed like the musketeers had more range Or I just need to get better at using cloak, either way its a change and its kinda refreshing. Maybe against Alin they are still justifiable since the trample is still nice. But against a good MMing opponent, their use has been drastically altered.

I'm gonna play a few games in against my son later today, he loves Vinci so this should be fun Need to play against a human opponent to really tell the difference.

All in all though, now that I played a few matches against the AI it seems like a decent patch. And a map to boot!

Playing with the new patch certainly makes playing against Vinci a lot more enjoyable.

In fact I think Alin might be the new king of the hill. Especially when you have experienced player vs experienced player(long games).

Still a few more tweaks needed. I think they should raise the price of the Glass Dragon, lower price of Doom Cannon and lower price of City of Vengeance. Not big changes but I think it would add more fun to the game.
