Foot melee units bonuses vs battering rams

Post by Endru1241 » Thu Sep 12, 2019 7:41 pm

Foot melee units (e.g. swordsman) have bonus against siege machines +100%, cavalry (most of them) have +50%.
Cavalry has +100% bonus vs battering rams.
Cavalier deals 30 base damage to battering rams. Man-at-Arms deals 28.
Melee foot units are supposed to be good against siege machines.
Conclusion:
Increase bonus infantry (only these units, that already have siege bonus) to twice current amount, so +200% in case of swordsman.

I support increasing bonus against battering rams by melee infantry, both battering rams and fortress have over 100hp,
However, other siege units have lower HP and only cavalry should b more effective against them,

So instead of using siege machine category, either only include battering rams in the bonus modifier against u_fortified_buildings or make a new heavy_siege sub category for battering ram and include that beside bonus list of towers in infantry json

That way infantry will b more effective against rams wen they r hiding in TC, protecting weaker units @Stratego (dev)
There is no place for false kings here, only those who proves themselves to b the true kings of legend, or serves under me

For I watch over this world looking for those worthy to become kings, and on the way get rid of the fakes and rule over the fools

I didn't write it. But that's my intention.
There is new category of units - siege machine armored - and it's only battering rams (right now).
Cavalry has now has double bonus vs armored siege.
And medium infantry should have +200% against this new category.

I'd say to add into that category also siege tower.

Please when you ask to change something argument why do you want that change. ...
Put some numbers, compare to what other races have and so on. Some real info why it must be done.

We already discussed that, along with idea for upgrading siege tower to have 2 speed and allowing it to let range infantry and archers attack, but that will have a different post, may b siege tower revamp
