with the new alliance's merchant capacity bonus, trade office's merchant capacity bonuses are becoming less special and unique. Here is some facts: -
-The maximum (level 5) Alliance's Commerce bonus is x150% of merchant's capacity
-The maximum increase in merchant's capacity at level 20 Trade Office (+20or40%/level) are: -
-Gaul: 750 + 400% = 3750
-Teuton: 1000 + 400% = 5000
-Roman: 500 + 800% = 4500
-Other merchant difference by races is travelling speed (field/hour).
- Gaul: 24
- Teuton: 12
- Roman: 16
Therefore, in my opinion, trade office should be made to not only increase the merchant's capacity, but to balance out all the merchant differences of all races, by increasing the capacity and the speed of the merchant at such on level 20 Trade office all race have merchants with 6000 capacities and speed of 30 field/hour.
New Trade Office bonus
(level 20 = 6000 capacity, 30f/hr speed)
Capacity: +262.5 (+35%) per level
Speed: +0.3 (+1.25%) per level
Capacity: +250 (+25%) per level
Speed: +0.9 (+7.5%) per level
Capacity: +275 (+55%) per level
Speed: +0.7 (+4.375%) per level
Why should trade office bonus balance?
Because when trading i want my merchant to have equal capacity and speed with my trading partners.
