Re: 700 food card as Russia

700f is almost a must-have for RE russia, and still very useful for EP russia. It is good for them because they need a lot of food in bank before they queue units, and also just consume a lot of food in general. I think spice trade is a pretty good card for them, especially on berry-heavy maps, as b...

Re: On vanilla what is the best civ and strategy to beat otto

All of these suggestions are under the assumption that Otto is doing jan/abus or some other rush/colonial timing. France can do musk/huss with 8 bows and maybe a few more, which is pretty good. Once he goes through his big 4 crate shipments (700c, 600c, 700w, 700f), france has a decent chance to bea...

Re: Indian Discussion Thread

I think that India, and all of the TAD civs for that matter, are hard to talk about in terms of balance. It is extremely easy to talk about balance within the confines of the euro civs, or even euro+TWC civs, as most of them are extremely similar in base design and mechanics, and most of the balance...

Re: Indian Discussion Thread

I think what the ideal scenario for crates would be for each civ to have 2 or 3 fixed crate starts assigned a number 1-3 according to their power relative to the other starts. Instead of a random crate and a random food crate being generated, a random number 1-3 would be, and then that would be the ...

I like this build quite a lot, will definitely try it! What are your thoughts on building mahouts? By late fortress, or after you have spent you mahout shipments, is it worth it to train them, or should you train sowars or transition to zamb/guhka? Are the elephant combat card or the card that makes...

Near the end?

So assuming you did standard trickle, 5 sepoy, 600w, 300e, trickle, would you send after camel cards or would you send it next? I am only asking out of curiosity as I don't really know what to send after the normal BO.

Re: Russia start?

300w first is only better than trickle if you want to do hazzarov's OP 5-4-13 build, and even then he says trickle is better. You could do 300w first, get tp or two and age with 17 vills and ship trickle second, though that is most likely too greedy. Sending three unit cards in a row is OP? Sarcasm...

Re: Disproving Virginia Company @GoodSpeed

TP+VC is extremely good on 300w starts, and you can still age with 17 villagers at the almost same time as a 2 manor age-up. This start allows you to boom quite hard, but still be quite flexible. However, VC first is just bad, especially in brit mirrors.
