I agree 100% with the developers to include less known/less commonly taken into account regiments than going traditional schematics.

Any disadvantages to the guard classes? there is no reason to pick any other musket classes, hp and damage boost is op

Agreed. Unless they included the game mode with a resource type system for each class, or quite simply I think a speed debuff would be a good counter balance.

Great work Andrew and the rest of the development team. My cheers to you.

Maybe they should have a slightly slower run speed?

Why would they have any disadvantage ? Elite is Elite and the guards have always been better than line infantry in NW / MM Russia if I remember well, never caused any problem.

As long as it's not too much ;D

This is a completely random thought but in the blog I saw all the classes, surgeon in particular. I was wondering since there is a surgeon class does that mean there is over time damage, if there is I'll hate it xd

Hey, Kreativity! There are no bleeding mechanics in the game. We think that it'll end up being more of a chore rather than an enjoyable feature.

It would be great to get a more widespread opinion on the matter. From what we've gathered so far, the rest of our community isn't too keen on bleeding mechanics either.

Thank you Refleax, finally someone who agrees with me that the bleeding effect is not needed.

Good to see that the bleeding mechanism for this game isn't a thing. :)

So logically then if bleeding isn't a thing that means that doctors either can revive a dying soldier or are just a pointless fluff class?
