With update 2.0, garrisons have suffered an huge nerf, decreasing the unit numbers of minor settlements from an average of 14-16 units with balanced Tiers (higher settlement Tier = higher unit Tier) in Warhammer 2 to an average of 10-12 units with mostly T1-2 units in Warhammer 3.
With 2.2, we now got only a few changes to garrisons: important capitols got their garrisons buffed a little bit (still far worse than the current state of Warhammer 2), heroes have partly returned to garrisons and garrison mages got new spells. However, minor settlements garrisons are practically untouched and so we still have to defend our T3 Khorne settlement with a maxed out 10 unit garrison (just one example; every faction except WoC has this problem).
Since there is no clear statement in the patch notes (neither in the current notes, nor in the preview of 2.3), it could be that CA doesnt see it as a problem and thus has no plans about it. "Additionally we have lost some of the more detailed and nuanced pieces of content when we transitioned from ME to IE, but are in the process of re-adding some of this flavour." (2.2; Settlement and Garrison Change; Dev Note, 2nd paragraph) could include it, but they leave it vague.
However, the topic has been discussed in the forum from time to time and I cant remember a poll about it. I am interested in what the community thinks about the situation. Do you think garrisons are fine at the moment, or should they get buffed/nerfed? Feel free to explain your opinion and discuss about the topic!
