Do Romans get 40% trade office boost with the new Balance changes?

  • Oh the new game changes posted here: [UK] Balance changes


    it says "

    Trade office:

    Trade office will give 20% carrying capacity instead of 10% per level on all servers (was only Annual Special feature before)."


    Does that mean Romans get 40% because they already had double what it was previously?


    Thanks in advance

  • Yes

  • Thanks for the speedy reply Wolkenengel


    40% bonus is very good for Romans! This mixed in with better alliance bonuses for merchants is a double whammy!


    Is there any buildings / artefacts that increase your merchants move speed?

  • No, no artis have an impact on merchant speed/capacity. Perhaps in the future, but for now nothing.

  • The trade office buff is already huge, paired with alliance bonus. Increased merchant speed is tbh now only needed in fringe cases, given how much you can move compared to production (unless you need to send res somewhere for an emergency).


    I'd say the buffs are overpowered for endgame (WWs) tbh, but doubt it will be tuned down.
