07MAR11 - DIPLOMATIC UNIT DATA

In the forthcoming new version of the User Interface (UIv2) we're showing, for the first time, Diplomatic Unit attack and defense values so that players can gauge how strong or weak their diplomatic units are in certain areas vs other units.

This data isn't in the current v1 User Interface, so we felt we should publish it here.

Our game balance team also took this opportunity to provide some more diversity between the units in terms of:
  • Unit build time
  • Thief carrying capacity, and
  • Movement speed
Most units will have had these values changed - generally upwards - and these changes come into effect immediately for all units in both User Interfaces.  

Currently moving diplomatic units are *not* affected by movement speed changes until the next time you send them out on a mission.

In general, your T1 (first) unit is stronger in Defence than your T2 (second) unit for each pairing, which is stronger in Attack - when you compare their values weighted by their upkeep cost.  So, bang for buck, you get better defence with T1 units, and better attack with T2 units.

Please note that the Build time in minutes is the base build time, and that upgrading your Consulate speeds this up, as do certain Sovereignty Structures.

So, without further ado, here are the important figures for Diplomatic Units.

Thanks for the information. I read long time ago that T1 were better defenders, but it is good to have it written.

I still do not completely understand how these values act. i have lost many units while making minor thefts, i guess consulate level is important (both for attack, and deffend?) and there's a random factor as well, but i'd like to understand it better before i lost another group of thousands.

thanks

I would like to confirm that these Attack and Defense Values are UNCHANGED from the last several months.  I.e., My experience on attack and defense remains valid.  Thank you.

At least the dwaarf has excellent thievery skills (well, halflings, technically), and pretty good Sabots.

Problem with dipl units having different speed and carry capacities is that these attributes help identify the race of the unknown diplomats and thus their owner. One of the intriguing point about the diplomatic units is the ability to stay unknown.

That's not a problem, it's a reward for people using their heads to solve problems and catch inconsistencies in less-cleverly-constructed framings.

I wish we could see the current stats to see how exactly they will change.
