Re: Strategic shrine placement

If it's a civ you expect to train infantry to siege down your shrines (like pikes or sepoys or whatever) it kind of gives your opponent an easy target. Better have your shrines far away in the corners then. If not then yeah it's good. Also depends if you have kami, port consulate, or nothing. With t...

Re: Of the expansion civilizations, which has the best artillery?

Japan with flaming arrows. Light cannons are available in age 4 so they're often irrelevant

Re: The problem with walls

Yea like typically pushing in a jap base full of ranged inf and even flaming arrows is a pain, you might lose if you try to commit there with cav, while if you force him to push in the open it's easier

Well, thanks, will start doing that from now on! Once we are on the topic, with how many villagers do you usually age up with when NOT plaiyng as the Ottomans? Like...

Re: For Russians, how to predominate the game with Ottomans?

Ofc otto virtually starts with a great eco. At a given time, a generic civ has 5 vils on food dedicated to only be producing more vils. So you can consider it's a +5 vil eco boost for otto basically. Obviously in the long run it sucks for otto since their vils train slower, but early on they just ha...

Re: For Russians, how to predominate the game with Ottomans?

Otto has the worst eco but they don't spend resources on training settlers, and they start with a TP so they get a ton of shipments in. On the other hand, russia has a great eco at some point, but it takes a while, and meanwhile they have to bank a lot of food to queue settlers/batches of units, so ...

Re: For Russians, how to predominate the game with Ottomans?

It's close, otto ages 350-410 usually so if you start bh at 415 at the latest your musk are gonna be out a little late but thats not a huge deal. The point is your want otto to be trading Jans for musk early so that they don't have a big mass of Jans when they get falcs, mams etc and slowing down h...

Yeah but often you're gonna be already building bh when otto is not up yet, so you can't always rely on scouting the age up politician

Re: For Russians, how to predominate the game with Ottomans?

Otto has always been like this. Same deck could be 3 or 4 very viable strats, even on EP. Biggest mistake most otto players make is gearing their deck too heavily to their predetermined plan, nullifying their versatile advantage. Scouting otto is very important, but Russia holds on (in every MU) be...

Re: For Russians, how to predominate the game with Ottomans?

Rushing is probably always gonna be a loss unless otto fucks up Well the only way Russia can win in general is if otto fucks up, and I think rushing vs their ff gives otto a bigger margin for error than just sitting back and waiting to get right clicked But otto can totally play age 2, and even if ...

Re: An Interesting Russia age2 against Ottomans ff

Yeah russia should probably not be able to deal with jans + falc in colonial if falcs are well covered. Kind of need to age up to get falcs yourself but you're much slower than otto so it's not easy

Well on some maps it's relevant. It all depends on the position of the tps
If you can wall up to defend the tp line while the other guy is camping, he's gonna have a hard time contesting them

Re: The problem with walls

Cause bastion is moved to fortress so people can't really go super turtle in colonial. Imo trade monopoly should be a potential answer to bastion, so at the same age.
