  • JoBikotch
    JoBikotch 1 year ago If you're playing maps like forest nothing, especially if there's a king involved, the teuton tech is also great. Build a few castles, research fletching like crazy and spread in some of the teuton unique tech and you can play the new game "Castle sniper" :D
  • Nathan Gamble
    Nathan Gamble 1 year ago +JoBikotch As explained in the video, the teuton tech is completely useless. It's cheaper to build a load of extra blacksmiths for more fletching.

  • Zachary Taylor
    Zachary Taylor 1 year ago I think Spirit actually missed a nuance there. In most versions of this mod, conscription increases castle research speed. This means that with just one castle, you can get the unique techs many times. Even though fletching costs less, it might not be worth the space and attention required to spam blacksmiths.
  • Ao Chen
    Ao Chen 8 months ago Towers and castles with mounted machine guns.
  • Kern
    Kern 7 months ago @Zachary Taylor How about the resources required?
  • Zachary Taylor
    Zachary Taylor 7 months ago @Kern resources usually aren't a problem late game with this mod, depending on the exact version and the map. It probably makes sense to start with fletching at the blacksmith, spam crenelations midgame, and switch back to fletching if you run low.
  • Ao Chen
    Ao Chen 3 months ago Sounds like a problem for Ethiopian ICBM to solve. :D
  • lolmanboss
    lolmanboss 3 months ago Imagine with bombard towers
  • Brian Bethea
    Brian Bethea 2 months ago (edited) @Nathan Gamble It worked incredibly well for T90. He maxed out fletching and then did a bunch of crenellations so he could hit anybody anywhere with his 20 something castles. Maxed out fletching was great, but it still didn't reach the far corners of the map.

I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad Gita; Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and, to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, 'Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.' I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.
