Post by Alexander82 » Fri Aug 19, 2016 1:53 pm

To give some more uruk options (also for lotr campaigns) i've also made the uruk pikeman (pretty common infantry for uruk hai)

I would suggest the following stats:
Cost 4
HP 30
Attack 12
Range 2 (Uruk pikes are very long)
Armor 3
Pierce armor 1
Speed 3
Sight 4
Action 1
Strong Against cavalry

Thanks! That's why i made its cost 4. I think he will be a valuable unit from a tactical point of view

Hey Daniel, i've noticed that the uruk pikeman has lower bonuses against cavalry compared to other pikeman, can't you give him the same bonuses as the goblin pikeman?

Just to make an example:

A goblin spearman, basic unit with a cost of 2 has a attack value of 4 and has 750% bonus against war elephants dealing a total of 4+750%=34 damages
A Uruk pikeman, a more advanced unit with a cost of 4 has 12 attack and deal +100% to war elephants, dealing a total amount of 12+100%=24 damages
I think that is not much fair for a more costly unit. I think it should at least deal double damage compared to a simple goblin.
Until now the goblin has always been pretty balanced (it's easy to kill and it doesn't instantkill mounted units) so i think we might apply its bonuses to the uruk pikeman that is an advanced specialist unit

The current bonus for the goblin spearman are 450% for every mounted unit except both elephant units that are 750%

Making some maths i'm calculating that a fair bonus amount might be 300% against everything and 500% against elephants
That way the damage dealth is approximately double of the goblin spearman damage
