Don't you think I know that? I, who have harassed posts like that many, many, many times? I, who almost have it as a hobby to point that out? lol

Gatherers are the most important unit in the game. I feel it would be to undermine their weight, to diminish them, if you would make them availabe en masse for low expenses.

IN that case, I think it would be better to give more nations a slave card, that gives you 10 slaves or whatever that takes 0 pop for some sum of gold. A card that can be sent ONE time.

no, slaves are a unique feature to Americans, if anything their slaves should be 0 allowed but then become 1 pop each with emancipation.
the only thing Russians have going for them is large weak numbers, peasants should reflect this. Large, massable but weak, with plenty of room for military. And Russian military are hardly spammable, just because they are sold in bunches doesnt mean they are cheap, it means if you dont have a larger amount of resource you might not get ANYTHING helpful.

I gots some ideas. Peasants are like slaves, but cost food, gather any resource, build any building, trained in blocks of 4 and cost 0 pop, but are limited to 20 (can be upgraded to higher limits) Slaves should be 0 pop, but more limited.

That is better. Allthough 20 of them with 0 pop would be too many if they had the same gathering rates as a settler.

Slaves take one pop and have the same gather rates as a settler, as far as I know. Confused
