Aging Orcs

Q: What exactly does the age modifier modify?

A: An Orcs performance drops slightly as the age modifier increases. It doesn't affect their play much until they reach -3 or higher. Then they start to under-perform a little.

Q: At what point should I start selling off the geezers?

A: Even though they have less of an impact on the game than they used to, they may still do better than less experienced orcs. It's up to you to decide when to bench or sell them. Keep an eye on how well they are doing in-game. That's the key.

Q: Can you give us a rule of thumb?

A: Sure...
Age modifier -1: Not much impact, more of a heads up that this orc has seen some game play.
Age modifier -4: You might be starting to notice a slowdown in the orc's performance, but you might not, too.
Age modifier -7: You've probably noticed a measurable decline in the orc's performance. They might not be done yet, but it might be time to consider retirement.

Q: When do orcs peak with regard to performance in the game?

A: Orcs tend to hit their peak performance at 7th season in a particular position. They continue to play well into their 8th, 9th and even 10th season, but the longer they go, the more closely you should watch them for signs of age.
