so fire & sand version is quite different than classic legends and all new features do make sense for this format
except one merging troops with gold.
I do understand that merging offensive units is suppose to counterbalance the ability of forwarding reinforcements and it´s actually quite interesting option.
however option to use gold instead of resources is just ... well bad, terrible, too much pay2win, overpowered, unbalanced, ridiculous...
we all know that there are accounts with virtually limitless gold supply and even though they still have an edge on regular servers - it´s not that extreme .
however in fire&sand version they can move armies around all the time and players without HUGE gold supply can´t keep up with this, since if you want to merge without gold - it costs 2x cost of units in resources and you are limited by your ress / warehouses / granaries / merchant capacity etc, so there is practical limit of how much and how fast units you are able to merge.
so I propose one of following changes :
A) disable the option of using gold to merge units completly
B) set some reasonable limit as to how much units / day you can merge using gold + add ress price x1 to formula ( so gold will save you 50%, but only to portion of units)
and by the way this one specific feature is hated by pretty much anyone whom I asked so far. ( do a poll if using gold to merge is something players like and see for yourself )
