It is just a sad, neglected state all around:
We now have maxed out grudges for 50+ turns. Grudges increasing their age rating every 5 turns, turns even on of the starting severity 10 grudges into one worth 100 points by turn 50, which fills the grudge meter all on its own.
We also have Zhufbar labelled as vampires.
Many provinces dropped from 4 settlements to 3, or from 3 to 2.
And if you try to build growth everywhere, you are still behind and have to neglect either income, or unit buildings, which just sucks.
The control problems caused by the permanently maxed grudges make it even worse.
Dwarfs are somehow the only(?) race left, that actually needs 2 buildings for a unit. Why?
With their non-existant tier 5 buildings, they even feel like an unfinished F2P race.
2 whole building upgrades, that only give recruitment ranks to your heroes and no units or anything.
What is even the point of a dwarf player to pay that 20k gold for a tier 5 settlement building and then shill out another ~15k for those 2 useless buildings?
You really start to feel the lack of elite/expensive units here.
With the changes to supply lines, you run more armies than in WH2, but you can only really equip 1 army with runes due to limits:
- each rune can still only be build 1 time
- you can't equip multiple of the same banner runes
Just remove those limits.
Still filled to 90% with useless junk.
Why do the white and green items even exist, when they are actively worse than dropped items?
Your starting Lord already has his unique items and the heroes/second army can be equipped with loot, so you never even use them anyway.
From rares upwards they are fine.
Still the only race without basic upkeep reductions and recruitment rank increases in their blue lines.
Still waiting for actually usefull lords. Right now all of their mediocre strenght comes from the runes they can equip.
Thorek is the only exception here.
No access to magic dmg, other than Lords and 1 RoR.
Jade Warriors dumpster Dwarf Warriors without any Harmony effects and surivive with 50% hp left.
That is probably enough to state how bad dwarfs currently are.
This is more a general complaint, but why are there only 2-3 siege maps per race?????
You get so fricking tired of fighting on the same map over and over again.
For the dwarfs you don't even see any of their supposedly grand Karaks and instead get junkyards, that the dwarfs couldn't even be bothered to properly maintain.
All in all the current state of the dwarfs definitly isn't "beta", it is alpa at best.
