    Default Give the rat a purpose

    There should be some purpose for our favorite furry critter...maybe a defensive bonus as long as you keep them alive..or possibly that the longer you keep them alive they multiply as rats tend to do adding to your defence(what is the def for the rat now anyway?)and there lack of mobility stinks as I ,like many feel a loss when he finally does get killed...but as it stands now is really no more than a pet:laika:

    Well do agree in principle. Probably these days many boast having a rat being the sign of great defender. For mutiplication u need to actually ask for 2 rats

    i like that idea, i managed to keep my rat for most of a ukx round, but sadly it just disappeared before the natars arrived, im still scared by this

    The rat is a pointless waste of time and should be replaced with a bunch of defensive troops.
    In my opinion anyway.
    I would quite hapily sell my rat for more resources at the start of the game

    A extra rat would be a massive drain on resources at the start of the game. you'd lose an extra 24 wheat per day on top of the 24 that you already lose from your first rat.
    Stop looking at me!

    I'm really selfconscious, ok?

    firstly hi to mud,,

    the rats are useless,, 2 mace and it's gone,,

    i agree there should be a defensive bonus for each week it is kept alive. however this would also breed a defensive style of play which would not be good for the game.

    What about a bonus for keeping it alive.. and a shiny medal for killing 50 of them?

    rats do have a bonus. they stop early gaul raiders with phalanx (well they're very annoying) and they give you 200 wheat when they starve to death.

    I like the rat the way he is, but maybe some official way to name him..
    So instead of rats being killed on the reports saying
    You have killed ***'s pet rat Wally
    'If you can't walk, you crawl, and if you can't do that, you get someone to carry you'

    I like the idea of either naming it or it having a purpose. Multiplying could be a bit costly at the start.

    I had my rat for the entirely of last uk6 (OK, I started a few weeks late). He was called Nails.
    I even took a screenshot of his final few minutes to show the unbelievers!
    Now I dual Teuton I'm not allowed a rat & tbh I'm glad to be shot of the responsibility!
    They are pointless, unless you want to show off your def abilities.

    Just one question, How does a single rat multiply?
    O, it is excellent to have a giant's strength, but it is tyrannous to use it like a giant

    The rats are just dumb to be honest, it simply accentuates the gap between Gauls and Teuts at the beginning, maybe vaguely funny the very first time, then you realise it's eating your wheat, and is going to make raiding with phalanx harder.

    Only thing I would suggest for rats is poison
    I need help, not ridicule!

    I know, the rat eats my wheat!

    Less wheat = Less cranny building resources !
