It it also important to understand the armies in T9A are not designed just to fit the expectations of players that at this given point in time identify with a particular army but to fit the expectations of all T9A players.
Question(s):What would be the wider community reaction to this?@Aenarion43 First of all great job. I really agree with most points brought (apart from weakness in dealing damage, as I believe that we are dialed so far up that even a significant drop from there wouldn't bring us into weakness territory. I think that even dropping LR would be sufficient in nerfing HBE damage to reasonable levels)
The removal of LR seems to me like something that would cause a riot if a staff member suggested it.
What level of compensation would be required to prevent a riot?
Would every (combat) unit need some compensation or would some just drop in price? How would the latter affect the elite feel of the army?
Do you not think such a thing loses a level of immersion in the world (that elves all have LR)?
All Elves having LR is less immersive than Elves actually knowing how to dodge or Parry a blow. Beserkers who use their superhuman grace to land hits instead of avoiding them would never survive enough battles to develop the incredible martial skill Elves are supposed to have. Not to mention that if they are a slow-breeding race, they'd drive themselves to extinction in their first civil war!
