    Default Units with a base price over 1k

    CA should lower the lvl 9 clan spec upgrades to lvl 5 for all units with a base price over 1k. Units such as Elite infantry which cost 1170 and 1280 koku are hardly ever used, because of the following: Foreign marines are plainly better in every aspect. even a lvl 5 foriegn marine tops a lvl 9 elite infantry and still cost about the same or less. This will create more variety for players to either choose a
    1500~ lvl 5 Elite infantry or a lvl 9 1300~ Bear unit,
    Lvl 5 shogunate guard cav over a lvl 9 imperial guard cav,
    lvl 9 sharpshooter over a lvl 5 tosa/Yugekitai
    and etc.

    This idea will surely help the Imperial/Shogunate clans have much more influence over player's armies.

    Though if you see any flaws, do tell, but I am sure this would make the game much more diverse.

    I would make kneel fire a level 9 upgrade for everybody and increased range an upgrade for nobody. Very simple. Units that have a higher base price already have much higher value so there's no reason to mess with that.

    If the range increase is lowered then the bushido gen will stand no chance.

    Thats why we should lower the amount for the increase range upgrade for lines, elites, carbine cav and imp guard.

    uh. no, the point is to make the units that are way too expensive be a more viable choice. I have a lvl 9 kihetai with increase range and it costs the same as a lvl 5 french marine.

    The problem is that the marines get the upgrade sooner. If no units get it, the unfairness disappears. If Kihetai aren't seeing use they could get a price decrease. There's no need to mess with the upgrades beyond that.

    that would result in alot of units getting a price decrease. The unit upgrade idea is an indirect method of giving them a price decrease.

    i do not approve of easier 150 range. price changes might be fine, but i dont want to see 150 range guards every battle, or range 175 skirmish units.

    im not saying that there should not be any, i just dont want to see those units as often as i see bears

    You make it like you never seen 150 range foreign marines. 175 range tosas cost about 1.8k currently. In said idea, they cost around 1.6k. The guard infantry will still cost more than a 150 bear by a substantial amount but still make them actually worth using.

    Also you make it sound like you never seen a melee rush before.

    Extended range should be at level 5 for skirmishers. The units are unusable in their current state.

    I'd like the see it fall to level 6-7 for guards and level 5 for Kihetai. I'd also like to the see the ability removed on line units generally.

    The Kihetai need a stat buff or a price decrease as they are one of the worst units in the game at the moment.
