Re: SPANISH RUSH

On nilla I used to do 500f age-up, 700w first, laying down double rax and queuing musks, then 700c, then 7 rods and 6 rods for the timing. Whats great about all the shipments that spain gets, which allows you to be able to not send 6 rods and quickly send 5 then 4 vills if your opponent turtles real...

Re: MU of the week: Dutch versus British on Hudson Bay

The way I've played this before as brit is do a stable start, usually with 5v first, train at least 3-4 batches of huss, while building a rax or two off of 700w. I then try to push them with my huss and like 10 musk around when they age, sometimes I also send 6 musk for the timing. I have no idea if...

Re: Japanese Discussion Thread

I think the best way to improve their early colonial is to give them an extra food crate or buff torii gates (personally I think it would be cool if it gave you like 2 coin crates or 2 ashi instead of the samurai). But then again, does their early colonial really need a buff? Japan is really hard t...

rof was taken into consideration. With RoF change abus take 24.5 seconds to kill instead of 21.

Re: Abus gun readjusted stats

Cost-effectively, abus do actually quite good vs. goons. Vet Abus damage: 48 * 0.75(multiplier vs. light cav) = 36 damage for around 230 vill seconds. Takes 7 shots to kill 1 dragoon, i.e. 24.5 seconds. Efficiency: 0.156 damage/vill second. Vet Skirms: (18 * 1.5 (multiplier vs. light cav)) * 0.8 (go...

Re: Abus gun readjusted stats

even on re otto has no counter to mass goons, at least abus guns fired more quickly I think its fine that otto have no hard counter to goons because abus counter artillery which IMO makes up for it. It is kind of annoying that full goon works compositionally-wise, but if otto is playing correctly t...

Re: Sioux Discussion Thread

What about not removing a civ and then creating a new one in a balance patch? This has actually worked fairly well in other games (civ 5 for example), and I don't think is actually all that insane. However, I don't think Sioux is that tough of a nut to crack. I think what they need is some sort of ...

Why not just give them an extra starting vill and one less food crate, and no other changes (except for genitours nerf)?

Re: Japanese Discussion Thread

I think all of the changes to Japan thus far should just be removed, and be replaced with just an extra food crate and a golden pavilion nerf (make the bonus be off of the base stats, not modified).

Re: China dock FF

I think Kaiser is totally right about TP's being superior, but there are a few new maps, like Alaska, where builds like this would work quite nicely. I would probably almost never do the fishing build on a map with a TP, as getting the TP and then shipping 1k wood first in age 3 for an extra tc or t...

Re: Is team medicine viable in 3vs3?

Honestly it's probably not too terrible. If you sent it at 8 minutes, then it would essentially be like sending team 3 villagers at around 13-14 minutes (after 7.5 minutes you get 3 extra villagers, but you do get extra income before that, because you're getting villagers more frequently, so you get...

Re: Shipping 5 fishing boats instead of 4 villagers as Japan

I ship 5 boats almost always if I shipped 3 boats already. 5 fishing boats gather pretty much the same as 4 vills with full market ups, but obviously don't need the upgrades. Dropping a dock is also quite nice, as it gives you an extra degree of safety, and allows you to get some of the upgrades whi...

Re: Abus Gun Colonial-Age Poll

I would switch RoF nerf for attack reduction and a reduction in their multiplier vs. cannons. Maybe 36 attack with a 0.1 against artillery. 0.1 is too much. abus should pack some punch against cannons. but a slight reduction could work perhaps. but i would first just reduce dmg, and then see if it ...
