Yeah lol. Some of those cons are rough too. -20% village hearth growth for empire that already have hearth issues? ouch.These pretty much take good options from two to one (Battania).
Are you josh'n me? TW don't teas me! I know what I said about DLC but if you add Elephants I pretty much have to buy itWait, Elephant DLC is real.
Well, it is not a massive amount of changes for SP but for modding and PvP this is one of the largest patches that tey have released so I think the change ist justified even if it has a different focus then most of the "smaller" patches. Especialy if you look at the detailed list of changed acces modifiers linked in the modding section this is a massive amount of options that modders can now use where they were blocked before.These version numbers make no sense. Here we have another completely incremental patch but the version bump is meant to imply a bigger set of features...
On one hand I like that there is some work being done around non-combat related content, particularly with the smithing changes.
On the other hand this is too incremental for me to care at all or make me install the game again.
