Re: Chinese age 1 TP?

287 I watched all the recs and I agree with you that it a TP is super helpful if you are playing straight-up age 2. Like in the first game (where you did not build a TP), your 300 export came too late to really be effective. I was mostly arguing that starting TP when you do a straight-ff against a ...

Re: Chinese age 1 TP?

Like I said you can't base it off rushing a 2nd lt who doesn't know how to defend. You have a point, but look at this objectively. China only has one village if they start TP and don't chop for one in transition. That one village is their only source of population space, and if it goes down before ...

Re: Chinese age 1 TP?

TP is only ok on maps and matchups that dictate passive play. I believe you can do TP start, 300w first and send northern refugees 2nd and still have a shipment when you hit colonial, if you do the mitoe no 700c, no vill on the wonder build. lol again example of you have no idea what your talking a...

Re: Bug Fixes for Fan Patch

Ha, found one: - when the game is set to post-industrial age, dutch skirmishers stay on veteran status (instead of guard) and cannot be upgraded to guard even manually (can be upgraded directly to imperial though) Is it just the name or name + stats, just wondering? Good question, looks like it's j...

Re: Pushing out of base

Push out after you get your most consequential shipment i.e 5 sepoy, 3 cuirs(+5 made), 2 falcs, mercs, crates etc... Try to send that shipment at the point when your opponent is realistically the weakest relative to you.

Re: choosing a civ

Don't play dutch. They arent that easy and have a swath of bad matchups. Something like Japan, India or germany is probably a better choice, as they are very strong and very adaptable.

Re: choosing a civ

Japan. Learn club rush and all the little variations. They are probably one of the best civs on quicksearch and random games because they are so adaptable and not map-dependent.

Re: Anti aztec stuff

17v doesn't bring much and I feel like azzy can decide to all in you and you just lose. With 17v you start aging up at 3:40 at least, and azzy can have 6 pikes at warhut at 4:15, 1 min before you're aged up... Sounds really risky Its fine i think, darwin used to always do it vs azzy to decent succe...

Re: BRITS VS SPAIN - help a nilla scrub

Yeah I think that 700c first is safer than 5v, as you get the 10 musk more easily, and allows you to more easily mix a stable on 700w. However, 5v has more eco and is less all-in.

Re: BRITS VS SPAIN - help a nilla scrub

Oh, you mean two raxes from the start? Interestingly enough, I tried it a couple of times just for the sake of it and didn't manage to get full batches. You have to chop 400 wood in transition for 2 raxes + have at least 50 pop space, so that's another 260 wood (only on a 300-wood start!). Your shi...

Oh, I must have missed that part, though then you can just go 700w first? With the 5v start I think you don't get a market, it's more „all-in". :roll: With 700w first you only get like 5 musks on your second batch, but with 5v you get 2 full batches easily, and a 3rd full one easily if you hav...

Re: BRITS VS SPAIN - help a nilla scrub

You can also do a 500f age up with 5 vills first, a build developed mostly for a hussar start, but that works well with muskets , as long as you get some sort of XP treasure to make sure your 700w comes on time, kill enough stuff to generate the XP, or are okay delaying your third batch by like 10 ...

Re: BRITS VS SPAIN - help a nilla scrub

I personally do a musk/huss rush/timing sort of thing. Especially if you mostly play on great plains this is probably the thing you will want to do. There are a few variations of the build doing both tower or 500f, and a few variations on your first shipment. A fool-proof one is age with 500f, get l...

Yeah I guess. Though I think the art multiplier gives them a distinct advantage over Russia and other colonial civs against semi-ff's. It is a negative thing especially in fortress, but the better veteran upgrade helps a little bit, +6 kanya. Also, if you go up with the wise woman, you can quite eas...

I don't see how Kanya are subpar. They are almost as good as a huss (+art multiplier) in warchief aura. Iro also has 3 upgrade cards for infantry in age 2, making aenna and tomahawks essentaily fortress-equivalent in age 2. Aenna are wicked efficient, same with Kanya, and iro has a 3 unit compositio...
