    Hi

    I feel a bit silly making a topic about this, but it's getting a bit frustrating. I played a couple of games on the current stable version (march 9th) and won. After updating to the new beta version (may 14th) I've been stomped by very effective carpets of doom in the early game. I tried maybe 5ish games.

    In the latest game I tried, I noticed that the troops of Gengis Khan had an extra combat bonus of 20-50%, very often 50%. Elizabeths troops didn't have it as far as I can tell. I added a screenshot that should show the combat bonus.

    Is this normal? Difficulty level was immortal. I also tried a game on emperor difficulty in middle of my immortal tries and I stomped that game.

    The trick is to not get surrounded...

    That's true, though in that situation avoiding it was tough. And the 12cs bowman/spearman vs 30cs elephant didn't help the matter.

    You wouldn't happen to have an educated guess what that combat bonus was? Often the bonuses have some explanation.

    Cool, that makes sense, thanks. I probably should have thought about that. Well, it seems to be a normal situation, so I'll go back to trying to crack this.
