Slamming into your opponent with a giant ball of melee units with a few arqs/ckn/musk adding dps in the back as China is always great. Never underestimate changdao swords in melee combat.

I like Wakina/axe rider a lot myself. Shame axe riders have a negative multiplier vs. light cavalry.

Since I don't use Control groups I suck with goons in general (and cannons) plus I really prefer hand cav for their tanking snaring ability. The skirms are ofc to do the majority of e damage and the musks are there to protect against cav flanking.

When you use goons you want them right behind skirms. so enemy skirms can't hit them but they still cover your skirms from cav. Have the beefy melee bodyblocking for your skirms and you're set up pretty nicely.

Sepoy, Siege elephants, Urumi, Redcoats, Zambs, Sowar, Gurhka
Reasons:
1. Sepoys are stupid good. Too strong for their cost. Especially because it's an age 2 unit, which leads to the second point.
2. India is the only civ that has all unit types in age 2. How is it balanced when a civ has goons and skirms in the second age?
3. Zambs and sowars are virtually indentical. For someone who uses control groups, this makes it easy to control the units. However, India's opponent must somehow target the skirms on the zambs and goons on the sowars, even though it is nearly impossible to do so when armies are clumped together and the two different unit types look identical.
4. Urumi are broken units with no counter. Aren't skirms supposed to counter infantry? Not if it's Urumi. Aren't musks supposed to to pretty well vs hand infantry? LOL have fun with that!
5. India doesn't have to shell out 800w for plantations. It can spend 400 wood for what is both a mill and a plantation all in one. It's incredibly lame!
6. India artillery elephants are not hard countered by culverins. Siege elephants can fuck up every civ's buildings and artillery and ships, unless those civs have enough goons and skirms to dps the siege ele. Which is incredibly difficult if india has an army to protect their elephants.
7. Like other Asian civs, India has a consulate and can train industrial units in age 2. WHY does india need redcoats in addition to all their other bonuses? Surely having 2 tanky scouts, a big powerful fb, and all the other lame advantages i mentioned would be enough. But no, India is a weak civ, youre right. Calling it top tier is clearly laughable.
hahahahaha
Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

This is only partially true, IMO. If you have the goons directly behind the skirms then kiting cav is actually difficult because your goons will block your skirms from walking. So sometimes I think you want them behind, but slightly off to one side.

You select them both and the skirms run to get into formation position :idea:

Makes sense to me. Especially since they can still hit cav.
