    Age 81 Power Rankings

    I got free pretty early for once, so looks like mine are the first done. Some big shakups in power here - in particular with UD being basically unplayable. Elite NW continues to be a problem for a number of races, most laughably for dwarf, where it doesn't even look like they are trying anymore. Fixing some NWs would be a big step to rebalancing things. Notes - sci levels were brought up to 2/3rds (rounded down a hair) my current sci levels. Given I'm human, I think this means about 75-80% age end effect, but perhaps only 60% or so the points - aka just into the back half of the age. TG+stables+homes = 40% - homes are used to pull land out of the system for avian and a few others where the TGs get too high.

    it's vs. its is ambiguous - from now on I'm attempting to use the proper possessive it's, and the contraction 'tis. (Its will just be the plural.)

    Agree I am not liking elf, human, or dwarf elites at all! Unless war is pre-arranged and you have untold extra GC they seem poor value.

    In my napkin math orc and avians are tossing very similar offense with humans only a little bit behind. Speed and losses vs TM vulnerability vs humans are always bad in long war for those choices. Leaning orc since I haven't seen the sci really pay off yet for humans, nor have I noticed undead sci hurting them much. I recently warred some avians that seemed to just die out on their own.

    Undead will be relatively buffed before finals tho, else others will be nerfed.

    I assume this doesn't account for Fanat, BL?

    Fanat, BL and GP should be in. BL is being handled by putting a 2 because it has the old +10% effect, so I grant it twice as a trick to make it work for current. TW is also in as a def buff, though that's a questionable decision to count it.

    MP is assumed for everyone, as is 200% wages. OME and DME science are assumed equal at 15%... it is close enough and I didn't have them separated out. Mercs/Prisoners are not accounted for in any way though. BE factors in on the portion of land assigned to TGs - Stables and Homes don't care though. I estimate enough stables to mount everything, then the rest in TGs (starts at 30%, or maybe 40%?), but can manually increase the homes % for a race if that makes the number go up (here's lookin' at you, Avian).

    In short, I do try and loop everything I can reasonably connect to military strength in there. I didn't deal with ghost workers since it is new, it'd be small, and I don't know how strong it is. Anything that gives NW free offense tends to be a big boon because these are MPNW rankings, not MPA. (Military Per NW - since it counts def too, though the off:def ratio is fixed at 70:30)

    Ah, got it. That explains the Avian dominance. BL is kind of bananas.

    try redoing with revised changes, I'm guessing those are the final changes since I was able to create a province.

    I'm guessing elf/warrior no elites will be on top.
    Furthermore I think Carthage should be destroyed and Dryads brought back to the game
