Voroks/Dharroks underpowered?
« on: October 29, 2009, 11:12:30 PM »
A while back, I was wandering through the lands of the Dharroks. I had a 40 something army composed of a mixture of freed prisoners, low tier troops, and mercenaries/bandits. I attacked a Dharrok army (with about 80 troops) and totally slaughtered them with perhaps 15 deaths on my side. A while later, I supported the Voroks against the Dharroks and won with virtually no casualties (though the Voroks took big losses). I later attacked the Voroks, but they were even easier to defeat.

I know it isn't an issue of my army (I tried to attack the Alanians and had my sorry ass whooped by their longbows and swordsmen), so I think they are rather underpowered. Mind, having some underpowered barbarian factions is great, but there should be something to balance it out (EG their armies are allowed to be huge, or they get a whole bunch of lords).

Balance is still an issue; the Voroks will eventually have a few specialisms owing ot their high mountain terrain and area which may balance out their relatively weak troop roster, or so I hope. Alania is also gonna be downpowered, mainly on thier armour as the mail on the archers makes them insanely hard to beat. That said, Alania will lways be a good faction; thye have a reformed, more modernised amry than their nieghbours and the advantage of excellent bowmen and a strong navy. The Dharroks I'll check, I hadn't realised they might be underpowered. They should be pretty decent in theory...
