    When players are not present their buildings should not be there. Winning should be calculated on the players that are actually in the game.
    Demons are overpowered. Aside form having fast attack and 40 starting chaos damage, they increase their damage considerably after killing one unit for example a Peon reaching 200 damage in no time.

    3/5 for encouragement.

    Unit War Mini - 4/11/16
    As it stands, there are 2 major very major game-balance issue.
    1.) I don't think there is a reason to ever go for the centre, it is much more effective to simply flood your nearest neighbour with siege units until they die.
    2.) All units cost the same resource. This in turn means that playing the resource game is pretty much pointless as you need to first have a miner and then have a builder to build more farms, the cost of doing that alone is 2/5th's of your entire army. Even if you compressed all build/harvest function into 1 unit, it would still be 1/5th of your army reserved for economy purposes.
    However, I don't think such gameplay is inherently bad in this gametype, but consider this; In a melee game, why do workers cost less than even the most basic combat unit?
    Having all units share the same cost is also very hard to justify when there are very big differences in the power level of different units.

    Despite all this, I really enjoy this map.
    I liked how there a huge amount of ways to specialize your army and every unit has its trademark skill.
    Combine that with an AI that knows how to play the game, and I feel compelled to play more rounds each time with a different comp; its a deceptively enjoyable map IMO.
    I also liked how you made the tool-tips incredibly short yet very informative, just 1 sentence explains exactly what a unit does.

    In addition to the points made above, there should be upgrades, or at least something to do with resources which are otherwise useless once the game gets going (increased farm production, for example).
    Demons- +20 damage per kill?!? They also leave tiny tome effects behind them, you should use a different effect when they go up.
    There's a problem withhaving to share gold mines, miners end up sitting there helplessly.
    Consider putting in an auto-production option.

    Props for having an AI.

    Speaking of player vs ai balance(not pvp one)
    What I did found funny was that I mostly used phoenix(basically the highest magic dps unit their only weakness is piercing), monster(for absurd cleave) and sniper(and raiders for pillage and builder for the farms and then sniper spam the latter have been nerfed).
    When I did use units like that the only problems with my snipers was them being killed by snipers.(they never got hit by anything else so I do not think nerfing their life change anything)
    Nerfing sniper life do not make it less useful it just makes sniper vs sniper fights even more blazing.

    I never tested multiplayer but snipers with their life were already killable in normal ways the main problem with them I think is their insane damage.
    I do not know why did you boost demon lord damage: it is not like if people did let people finish them in the first place.

    The AI is still very basic and needs a lot of improvement. If you really wanted to abuse them right now you could just build 5 Trolls to win because the AI doesn't focus them down. Eventually I'll update them to focus specific units and build counters etc...
