One thing for all the turtles to keep in mind - while DoF doesn`t penalize turtling, it doesn`t reward it. You want to be out there - visiting local villages and mercenary camps, fighting various PvE battles, fighting other players, questing and trading - it`s the best way to quickly acquire resources.

Also keep in mind Rollingplain can put our mass sword and shield infantry, that are really efficient against ranged units during castle siege/defense.

Of-course no question about it - Rollingplain players will be better of laying siege in team with another player, who`ll cover the siege equipment. But having large cavalry force, allows pretty good raiding in PvE, on top of that Rollingplain offers plenty of gold - so it`s possible to buy some wood and siege equipment.

We tried to balance it out

Hmm I'm really impressed with the amount of thought that the devs have put into balancing both city spacing as well as the trading idea for needed resources. Very typical of RL trading. This may break the mold for well balanced and entertaining. I can't remember a game that sounded better as the date approached.

Maybe give them better trebuchets or something because they have to build them more efficiently due to a lack of wood.
You do have a point, I guess having to import siege equipment is tad tedious. I think we`ll give a boost to rollingplain rams, perhaps more hp/attack and +60% gold cost, -60% wood cost kinda deal.

Thanks for the feedback guys!

Being an orc player I definitely see the rollingplains players being the largest threat. Not just because the way orc cities are set up, but because I also see the best players being able to use extremely deadly harassment tactics with those mounts (which i guess does go doubly so vs orc cities). I don't see many experienced players even being turtles up in the mountains, so they may even get a visit from me from time to time.

I'll go for the most picturesque - it's got to be Rolling Plains, with that mill <3
Actually, this game really looks like a medieval Company of Heroes - the starting hall reinforces this, and the neat, precise graphics. Love it!

If the pikes are there i can play anything, NEED PIKES!!! However if there are any races without pikes i will never play em... Pikes is a must to EVERY race, so i can't wait the world!!! I will turtle up, make a huge pike based army. Then my slow moving heavily armored army will take down any harassing horsies! Also if archers dare to come near me i will personally make sure that they get the same treatment as suicide bombers get at the point of blast

Hmm bad joke, but good point. Spearmen are needed for balance.
If were to play humans, and that's a big if, I would play Plains humans, Cavalry FTW.

Sorry I haven't been posting for a few days --

I picked Rolling Plains before I even read the FanFry.

1 - I wanted inter-race interaction
2 - I liked the weather

Now that I have read it and the posts, I totally agree with my decision. I think most people perferred Southmount because, being currently unfamilior with the game, most would want to turtle first thing. Then, they will eventually stick their heads out. Advanced players who are willing to take risks will settle in other areas and be ready with an ax once the turtles begin to stick their heads out.

SMACK!!

Rollingplains it is. Go Cavalry. And cheap infantry.

Can't wait to see the orc lands. I see a bonus to speed of Mount spawns, Bonuses to peon/laborer spawns, and unit count bonuses in our future ^^.

This trading system looks just so in-depth and amazingly detailed that I just gawk at some of the things you say. This just looks so awesome that I am really really excited for this game.
