I personally like the Teuton change on the 5 tribe servers. Huns are OP in my opinion, so the SR nerf was great. They are faster than TT's, carry more, and attack like EIs for less cost. This is a good change.
The brewery set up allows us to create some interesting strategies using multiple tribes (this format will not just be in Pandora I'm guessing going forward). The brewery change isn't to make maces better -- it's so a Roman can run it with Imps or other strategies.
