Firelancers

Probably, as fire lances are technically classed as siege units (unlike destroyers)

I thought they were more like gastraphetes, either way it makes it a siege unit with 4.8 speed, 5.2 ms with shennong. Feels kind of strange when a siege weapon is basically out running cav.

Mounted Archers and Fire Lancers are unique in that they both have dual unit types. Archers and Cavalry for Mounted Archers / Siege and Archer for Fire Lancers. This dual nature was intended to balance the unorthodox counter system and low population costs with the downside of taking bonus damage from a wider array of units. Naturally the initial numbers are nonsense, but as you already knew from the announce stream, Chinese were intentionally made too strong. Hagrit's balancing effort I think has proven that the design works.

Do you kidding? No one picked Chinese on the previous two tournaments. What has been proven?
