Post-1.01 Disciples

Post by Navarone_Guy »

Alright, earlier today I did a 1v1 unrated China mirror against some level 40 guy, and he used 5 disciples and his monk to counter my 7 steppe shipment, and he actually won. (By the way, do you want me to post that game?)

Anyway, what I'm asking is:

What do you guys think about post-1.01 disciples? I'm thinking that at least in China mirrors they are potentially very useful (Qiang are pathetic against light inf for no reason, and discs are light inf. They also beat steppe). Thoughts?
Groovy.

those disciples are nice auxiliary to your units early-game, sort of like spanish wardogs. whenever i play spain i always have 5 dogs handy in early colo. :D i always feel so tempted to send the +20% hp &+20% attack card for them..

i think the disciples arent obnoxious anymore, its just that steppes are weak :[ btw can they still clone ?

I believe so. ES said it took out that ability in 1.01, but I believe it's still there.
Groovy.

They clone, you can train them in the middle of a battle and they're LI!

Yeah. I don't make them too often, tho, because it screws up vill/old han production.

I'm thinking with the 400 food from aging, it wouldn't be that hard to make a few extra, especially if you have herdables to eat. Then you always have excess food.
Groovy.
