Re: $1000 ESOC Challenge Cup - Group Stage Roundup

You give up one vill for 5% on hunts (and a faster age up probably as you chop less wood), which means you only lose about half a vill if you have 10 vills on food.

Re: Brits: DE vs RE

@P4blit0 I was too lazy to look for the decay rate and just did a fermi calculation using 1f/s as the decay rate (so the real results are actually better than what my calculation assume).

Note that for the 2vills+2 cows politician you don't need to factor in loss income from vills gathering from cows .....

Re: Sir_Musket Is Back!

Poisson advocates having infinite one falc in deck in some MUs in his Spain guide (I'd argue that outside of specific all-in builds it looks a lot better than 12 pikes for example).

Re: Pikes too weak for their cost?

Basically all civs with pikes train them regularly (not in every game every MU but in a significant number of them). This is a much better state in the meta than halbs for example.

Re: How good are Native Alliances? Are they underused?

Natives are used a lot in treaty so it's not like they are completely useless. There is a lot of game content that is even more useless (like half the cards have no use in any game mode...).
