|Attacking Ability by Race|
|21:57:19 Dec 4th 17 - HorusPanic (Sir Panic):|
Was just thinking about the races and their ability to get shit done on the battle field. I wound up ranking (1=bad through 5=great) the races through each phase of an era. Then plotted it because why not.
Just something from my personal opinion and fun for discussion. (where X axis is early-mid-late game)

Halfers would stand 4 early, as ponies are fast (cheap).

Already had something similar to this

I do remember this, but it was static and did not do the early-mid-late thing... plus hasn't been dusted off in 8 years...

I totally disagree with this. It's so wrong, lol.

First of all to put it more fairly, you have to put it in a context in which all these races are investing the same amount in income throughout the era. Secondly this would not be able to reflect fighting ability unless it takes into account AOTD. Then you also have to take account if its offensive, or defensive power your talking about. For example a dwarf probably has the highest defence mid era. But late era anyone can chain aotd that strong defence off the map. I would also say theres other things on Aishas such as dwarf having weak magic isnt completely true. We may have weak magic attack but in comparison to everyone else and the number of troops we carry. In general dwarf has a stronger magic defence then all races except elf.
In other words I dont think there is a graph or table that can fit all these variable into something as broad as attacker capabilities. But both do reflect many of the truths of the game.

Playing dwarves always has felt like a bit of a slow burn, so I can agree with that.
Orcs OOP always did make me nervous
