@thomashiatt said in Mercy simple suggestion: reduce damage vs ACU:
Not acceptable to have a unit that does different damage to ACU than it does to other things. Too messy and unintuitive. Special cases should be kept to a minimum.
Yeah, what? You see that Age of Empires 2 is still getting expansions, right? And a new sequel in the pipe?
I agree that it should be kept to a minimum, but moreso that it should be up front in unit description text.
I think giving it a big aoe and low damage would be good. Maybe put it in a special spot and give it low damage, large area, and an EMP/chrono effect on strike, with extra damage to shields. Then it has an effect, a unique use, and dosen't need to be snuck behind enemy lines. Or maybe it can do that too, idk.
Also it should be able to refuel, but get like 10-20 seconds of fuel at a great speed, then is just slow like everything else.
