Or lords, for that matter. If I understand the changes correctly, the Supreme Sorceress and Morathi will both have their mounted (read: only) cost increased by 100 in addition to the Cold One Chariot cost increase.
Unless these changes come with buffs in other places, this is extremely unwarranted. Right now, pre patch, the DE have maybe 1 favourable MU. They're held afloat by a good number of even MUs making them hard to counter with a couple bans or just two games into a series.
However. With the DLC at least two MUs are being turned on their head and further weakening the weakest elf faction makes no sense.
DE have unfavourable MUs into Skaven, Norsca, HE, WE, Bretonnia, Tomb Kings, and controversial though it may be, Lizard Men. (and imho Beastmen, too, but many people disagree so I will list it as my opinion rather than fact.)
They might have a 60:40 advantage into dwarves, though. Which is nice, dwarves being the popular lads that they are.
Next patch two factions are getting whole new toys, one of which is currently the second strongest faction in the game. As of now, Empire vs DE is one of the most even MUs in the game, but that's going to go mammaries upward in about eight days.
If Dark Elves as a faction are further weakened in addition to this it's going to be a serious struggle for them.
Please, reconsider this change. @CA_Duck
help me out, man.
