Re: Russian Discussion Thread

I wouldnt like an age 2 buff but something that makes the age3 option more viable so that they can keep up with the semi ff/ff civs Maybe giving Russia the governor politician (1 BH + 200G) together with better unit shipments in age III would help. It would allow a build like market + tp in transit...

Re: COLLET FOOD ON HUNT NEED EXPLANATION

In your first video you can see that two vills start gathering at 1:03 instead of 1:00. That loses 6Vs which equals 5 food. If you added that to the 289f you got at 2:00, you had 294f. Where the remaining difference of -1 compared to the 295f in the 2nd test of the first video comes from i dont know...

Re: British Discussion Thread

I've really been struggling with Brit because nerfing manors goes against our philosophy of not changing civ bonuses and I think the balance in strength between boom builds and non-boom builds is currently okay for Brit. Nerfing manors is a clear nerf to boom builds, which feels wrong because it is...

Exactly! If you simply go for early attacks every game with russia you got no skill and you will never get to the point you mentioned. Trust me, i know what i m talking about.

I still would not produce vills even for the price of 255f per batch. I still would try to stay at 17 vills as long as possible in every game, age up with 500food, produce army, send unit shipments all the time and attack my opponent.

Re: MU of the week: India versus Russia on Florida!

Wait, is it worth it to age with 4vills on the wonder ever? Imo you should avoid it, I would rather cut vills at 14 to make sure to age with 1 or 2 on wonder at a reasonable time. From the mathematical point of view, cutting vills is worse than putting extra vills on wonder, for the following reaso...

Re: MU of the week: India versus Russia on Florida!

I'd say that plays into india's advantage. Even though india can definitely survive an early push from russia, it isn't really pretty and actually also costs india quite a bit. If you don't really overcommit as russia, then I definitely think it can be worth it. I think if you age 400w and then go ...

Re: MU of the week: India versus Russia on Florida!

On Florida, I think going 500f might just be the way to go. Don't really see what you'd do with 400w. Unless you're refraining from pressuring at all. You can also age with 400W, send 700F and produce lots of early strelets from these ressources. Dont need 500f if you have 700f. Then send 5 Coss as...

Re: MU of the week: India versus Russia on Florida!

One possible build is, for example, 17v age up with 2 TPs+BH in transition with eco theory as 2nd card. The economy is huge and shipments are back to back. Build is also super safe because BH is up by 5 min. Can easily research steel traps and then start producing strelets. From there Russia can do...

My opinion on India vs. Russia on Florida, EP 4.1: From indian point of view: You dont have to do anything else than sitting in your base behind agra fort and wait till your opponent arrives, doing nothing except for managing your vills, producing units and watching your army stand around. You leav...
