Good morning one and all, I hope y'all are having a ball.
I'd like to have a discussion around Garrisons and how they can be improved. Right now they're pretty okay (within how the game works) but they can like all things (except the Mattock) be improved. Discussion of the ideas presented here are welcome, as are presentations of ideas, all opinions are welcome, just be civil yo.
I'd also like to see the player be able to choose their own Garrison. It'd be very simple; you get a set amount of funds to purchase units and you purchase them with limit being that the max tier of unit is the same tier as the city. It'd make me actually get involved in my cities and it'd allow for clever players to maximize the value of their garrisons by catering them to counter the enemies of that region.
This is roughly along the same lines, but if we can't customize them then I'd like this;
Make all garrisons roughly equal value. Compare Brettonia's top garrison to say the Dark Elves. the DE have far more expensive garrisons. The fix is easy; have a set value for Garrisons which is roughly stuck to. I say roughly because it's hard to be exact due to the nature of things and because values will change with balance passes, but within a couple hundred points.
Custom Garrisons would be awesome. It'd be a neat way to make individual settlements feel important as you decide who it's most likely to face and what the best lineup to face those opponents is.
