Re: Best first shipment for China?

the best part of not shipping northern refugees in age 1, would be to get 7 villagers from it in late age II. But giving the strength of China late colo it is hardly usefull. That's a shame tough it would have been a good use for the card.

Re: Rifle Riders as a substitute for Wakinas

they are just a niche unit countering the fearsome (broken bcause of musks according to gs in his guide) musk/huss combo. They are actually jaguar prowlers on horse if I am allowed to compare them this way.

Re: Rifle Riders as a substitute for Wakinas

I know that I have already mentioned that but RR are classified as heavy cav so they are hard countered by goons. So ROF and so on don't really matter as they take a x3 in the face!

If I recall they don't have the range resist of a goon either so yeah no rr are useless against ports (except against m .....

Re: Aztec Needs a Change

Yep definitely :) But I like some of the ideas especially the one of adding range to halb and pike units similar to the kamayuks for Incas in AoE2. The thing is it really changes the game as the archaic rush could be quite nasty then.

Re: German Discussion Thread

What about changing the exiled prince age up time specifically for germany? Slowing it up by 15-20s might be enough to make them more vulnerable to hard rushes. Thus making them want to stay a tad longer in colo where they shine less.

Good question a pure goon comp is tough for otto to deal with but why did you let your opponent age though?

Re: Aizamk Portuguese 10/10 Rush

It is more like you force the tempo in order to allow yourself to catch up in development whilst retarding your opponents development in order to come out equal or better- the tempi in chess is like having the serve in badminton or tennis, you might sacrifice a piece in a 'forced' situation of 2-3 m .....

Re: Ottoman Discussion Thread

Myabe allowing an higher number of mosquees (like 2) to be build. This way on a non TP map they can build two for 200w and have 80% of a TP which is worst than a TP map bit decent at least.
