The future of 22.5k battles

Nighthawk00Nighthawk00 Senior MemberPosts: 613Registered Users
In a few months to a year, almost all Shogun 2 players will probably be level 10. Knowing this and knowing that match making (MM) between two level 10 players is at 22.5k funds, it is reasonable to think that almost all or most MM battles will require 19 (20 units minus the general) veterans. Players only have 43 veteran slots, that leaves little room for different army compositions. Of course one is not obliged to field 19 veterans in such battles, 18 or 17 are also possible.


Will this be a problem (as in boring battles with mostly the same army compositions)? Will CA intervene? And how can CA intervene?

Should veterans be healed automatically after a battle? Should the number of veteran slots be increased? Will the 22.5k funds be lowered to say 18k?

    Nobody wants to fight higher than 14k, they'll fix it soon

    I like the 22.5k battles but I don't like fighting two in a row as my vets need to heal.

    I personally hate 22k battles. It would be nice to be able to set your prefered or max size for your battles.

    As a 10 lvl player i like 14k and 22.k battles , i hate when i must play 5k battles with my 1800 koku general and fighting 10k its kinda unconfortable since i cant balance army well(melee and range) .

    14k battles are fun , 22k also but not 2 in row when your core of vets is shattered from last battle and that means that i got smaller chances to win - giving me feeling even i win first fight "i dont feel like i want to play next battle".

    Veteran slots at lvl 10 should be increased by 10 slots IMO.

    As i have noticed that people 10* are alt+f4 in loby to avoind 22k battles when their vets are damaged, something really need to be changed. Lower funds, more slots, something...

    I don't think that's how they intended veteran slots to work. They are intended to be your elite, your shock troops. Not your entire army every single battle. It just works out now that you can pretty much dump all your vets into a 10-14k battle almost every time. Which is kind of silly.

    Why don't you just use the battle list? It lets you choose between lots of different games, so you don't ever have to fight a 22k battle if you don't want to.

    @SnoopyTRB: existence of 22k battles proves that they intend to allow us unleash full potential of fully experienced units.My army consist of like from lvl 4 to lvl 6 veterans mostly and i spend all my koku + i need to take like 2-3 units that are "blank" (non-vets) to fill all 20 slots.

    I bet players with mostly lvl 9 vets need to think carefully about army setup before going to fight , also they wont fill 20 slots.

    Problem is when battle ends with all your units decimated and MM will place you against next lvl 10.
