I understand that when TTW first came out dwarf cannons were quite a few power levels below Empire cannons. They had less range and did less damage overall.
I have a fairly clear memory that this was changed quite a long time ago so that dwarf cannons were brought on par, or to be even slightly better, than Empire cannons.
However since the last patch I noticed that Empire cannons were getting the first volleys off on my dwarf cannons and that I was losing arty duels with the Empire again, and upon closer inspection of the unit stats I realised that:
Dwarf cannons - Range of 440, damage of 213
Empire cannons, Range of 450, damage of 223
Is this intended? I've spoken to some other community members and the collective memory seems to be that, once upon a time
Dwarf cannons were weaker than Empire cannons. Then they were buffed to be equal. Now it looks like they're back to being weaker than Empire cannons despite costing the same amount?
