hmm those are good varyag changes takeing power out of sturgia, but heavy infantry is still uncontested (the class has a meaningful perk decision now though). The courser weapon change is good aswell.

Not a huge fan of the mounted archer changes...

LOL. I spent whole day, was swimming in XMLs, to create a new mod which will be more detailed than my others. I was just about open the game and try my work and saw Steam updating it. Now I can only hope to see it working. (TBH not sure if it could work before the update hehe.)

Anway, it is always nice to see an update. Thank you TW for your hard work.

Am I still sleeping or are none of these multiplayer changes in the current build?
There seems to be a huge miscommunication in these patch notes. On an earlier patch they made some balance changes and noted them on the next patch notes , now they noted them but they are nowhere to be seen.

Developers increasing the number of Battanians make a big pile of **** out of a pile of **** ... without solving the problem at the same time. The problem of skirmishers, Bedouins and Battanians is not in a small number of units, in the worthlessness of the weapons and the units themselves. Before the empire, even sturgia and vlandia could do something, now everything has become boring and dull except the empire...

you mean its more balanced now? Horse archers should be changed, they are one of the most boring units to play against.
