Re: Typical German vs X mili pop graph V2

@Astaroth adding to your point, I have seen players such as MusketJr pull off very clean and convincing musket pressure vs Germany in high level games so certainly it can be done and is very effective. Lack of imagination is no sound basis for overhauling the entire game by nerfing civs one has a vi .....

Re: Typical German vs X mili pop graph V2

BSOP did a 10/10 Japan rush vs Garja's france and won decisively on stream. The whole notion that some players have been blessed with an arcane knowledge of the game rendering their dogmatically held beliefs beyond question is simply cringe worthy.

Re: Typical German vs X mili pop graph V2

I think BSOP had great success rushing with Japan, if that is what you are referring to, and the videos are still available for download (Buckethead hosts them somehow on a web service). I would've loved to see how any top player today would have fared with France or Germany vs BSOPs or H2Os Japan i .....

Re: Typical German vs X mili pop graph V2

I know plenty of habitual nilla civ players who have spiked at least +5-10 PR by switching to/learning asian civs, breaking out of the capt-major swamp. In fact I have records of such players trying asian civs for fun beating (legit) PR 35-40 players in qs. If someone could provide a single example .....

Re: Dutch-FI

Tabben pulled off a rather convincing (semi) FI build as Dutch vs diarouga's India in the semi finals in the LAN. Meta or not but I think that build goes toe-to-toe/stand a fair chance to beat India's urumi FI stuff.

It could be argued that the biggest problem with walls is not that they're inherently too strong, which is historically accurate - enabling a tiny band of brave men to fend of entire invading hordes, but rather that they are way too cheap.
