Laborer waste to build UNCONFIRMED

Post by DoomCarrot » Fri Jul 29, 2016 11:56 pm

Ok, I just played a game against AI to really test out the new units.

Laborer is terrible. There is no reason to waste 2 turns on a laborer, when you can get a FAR superior worker for 3. Laborer takes like... 10-12 turns to build a wagon, with ambidextria. Laborers seriously need a mending boost, in my opinion. Does anyone else think this?

Also, Laborer's have a "healing" effect when they mend something, rather than the usual hammer. I think this is a bug?

Yeah, oops. Still haven't gotten around to fixing it.
Thanks!

Ive not made one yet..

But what I did notice, in the editor, is that the labourer actually has a better attack than a worker. I thought it was strange, but thats what i found lol.
If thats is the case, then brawn over brains comes to mind :D

Completely agree
They mess up all turn costs. I think i somewhere suggested they should have the same mend rate as worker and killable in 1 blow by any unit
