I have been playing this game for many years. This weekend I noticed a change I am not happy with.
The purpose of ranges units is to hit things from a distance. My normal strategy is to march standard units close to the target then have ranges units behind such as artillery and/or ships.
Yesterday I attacked a coastal city with this method. The city had no ranged units. When I checked on the attack a few hours later, all of my ranged units were dead yet I had defeated the troops sent at me. This is just wrong. I would have no complaints if they had ranges units.
This change made it more fair for people who don't understand how ranged units work. Understanding ranged units is now a disadvantage because they don't work like they should.
Was this the intended purpose of the change?
