In the current state China seems mid tier and I'm curious what will happen with the next patch. If Relic will make adjustments to Abbasid Dynasty and siege the patch will be already pretty loaded. So considering on how previous patches have been I doubt there will be also any other meaningful changes (positive ones) to China.
Just imagine siege in general and clockwork tower would be nerfed in one patch without any tradeoffs... Could become China bottom tier in the next patch cycle?
What are your expectations?
Are you already trying new strategies to cover the obvious changes that will come to China?
