Blitzkrieg.

I have two questions about this strategy. First: Is it true that the Germans are the best at using blitzkrieg as a strategy?

And secound: If not, what were the developers thinking?

Re: What kind of civilizations would you like to see on this game?

You know one of the few things I didnt liked about WOL? Their approach on the "old" European civs.

When they "rehauled" then, they also replaced the more archaic unique units of most with more modern unique units. While it certainly made it more historically accurate( I will admit .....

Re: What kind of civilizations would you like to see on this game?

Huh. My first thought would be just making it a Royal Guard unit, and giving the Poland a few unique cards dedicated to improving Hussars. I will give it, though, your idea is MUCH more original :p.

I was pondering whether to put this on here, OR on the "User-made content" session,but as this is less of a full-fledged mod idea, and
more just some disorganized thoughts...

Re: Top 5 best heavy cavalry civilizations.

I still just dont think it is fair to compare a heavy infantry unit to a light cavalry unit, when both are more suitable to different roles and circunstances. And, on the case of the Yojimbo, the comparisson becomes even weirder because the Yojimbo-Itself-Plays very differently from other light cava .....

Re: Top 5 best heavy cavalry civilizations.

... Okay, seriously, I just dont get it. Am I the only one who likes to have the option to train a anti-cavalry unit that is fast enough to chase cavalry down or to run away if things get dim, and that, unlike the Yabusame, can actually hit decently hard?

Warrior culture could have been incredibly OP if it has been a Discovery Age or even Colonial Age shipment. But, as it is a Industrial Age shipment, it is rather useless in my eyes.

I dont get what is so bad about Portugal. They have a slow start, admittedly, but being the only civilization that gets a free Covered Wagon on the-Colonial-Age speeds up their economy majorly.
