So... exploding shot. It's doing PATHETIC damage. Like... bad.
I was testing some artillery on things today and noticed that exploding shot from a ballista was basically just NOT killing the target... even with direct hits.
Then I saw the target was Illyrian Noble Hoplites.
Given that particular unit... I thought it was the armor maybe. So I loaded up a bunch of 50 armor spear brothers or some such from the Suebi.
They didn't get killed very well either.
I did it a bunch of times, and there were times that the accuracy was bad -- but times where they were pretty accurate, too.
So the "bonus v infantry" thing on exploding shot is currently a lie... or maybe even got switched to a negative value? I dunno, but SOMETHING is wrong with it.
Basic rocks devastate. Even flaming rounds do. But the exploding rounds are just... useless atm.
