So, not sure if this is intended or not but the bank cards for the dutch actually nerf their fishing rates by 20%.

Yea, I was surprised as well when I checked the Dutch HC cards a while ago. I already removed it. Smile

I think that was put in place in TAD so that people wouldn't circumvent the 50 vill limit by making tons of boats and banks as well. That would make the Dutch eco OP, especially late game or in treaty.

I was thinking of that possibility, but removed it nonetheless. I agree its an effective way to balance the dutch late game eco, but it's not transparent for the player. At first sight the link seems quite arbitrary.

As we all know it's already easily possible without banks and additional build limit restrictions for fishing boats to rock the eco with the right water cards in your deck. Generally late game ecos are very very different with some civs that (especially Euro civs) that shoot through the roof into space. And that's because Age V cumulates every imaginable, possible eco booster of all the ages before.
