This is the 2nd of two games and I won't even post the 1st because it literally went down exactly the same way. He FFs, I FF 700w Mitoe-style meaning I'm slower, he masses, I mass, he crushes me. Dopps are really really hard to focus fire with skirms when they're in a big German mass.

He also sends the German church card, for speedy dopps? His deck is called "vs. China" so I know he has a plan.

Anyway, how do I counter this. My FF is just too slow maybe, and I should do the 700c one instead? Or semi-ff? Or push age 2?

Looked more like a positioning issue in the rec you posted than anything else. Your army was split into 3 groups without any way of supporting one another with the wonder cutting off your anti-cav from your skirms and your mine/village cutting off your cavalry. When army sizes get that large it's more important to concede ground and sometimes even buildings or villagers to get a better position with your army.

Other than that, I didn't watch super closely but from what I did see I have a couple of comments:

I don't really think 4 Iron Flails is a great shipment, particularly against Germany. I would avoid sending this early on if I were you. It's better a late Fortress shipment to remass cavalry really quickly as its value is quite a bit lower than the 5 Meteor Hammers or any of the other major unit shipments China has access to.

You also got your market upgrades quite late. I think if you can confirm that your opponent is also going Fortress you can afford to get most if not all of them in transition to Fortress/early Fortress. This will help your mass a lot later on.


Other than that you did fine. Just need to reposition and macro a bit better and I think you have a good shot. Also, you could consider going pure infantry (possibly with Manchu) vs this style of Germans and getting Territorial Army Combat in once you have a decent mass. I think he would struggle to beat that doing what he just did.

I played as fre Vs his ger and won ,he goes for a non eco timing push everytime ,and it's so predictable he's does only 1 BO just naked FF with a tp ,he sends 1k wood and makes cannons himself ,so I made cannons my self n outmassed him with great eco lead even though he had dopps ,kaiser Ur point is a good one but he doesn't do any STD stuff ,he does his own builds n variations Vs each civs which are not that much great ,most of the time he looses vills like if he was building a stable n oppo denies it he would still build still build till it's up....so...

thanks for the response. positioning isnt something i think about a lot at pr23 so this is good to consider. if I am going pure inf against this, what card order would you suggest? 10 skirm, 11 changdao, 1k wood, then manchus?

If you're going to send 1000w it should probably be your 1st card in Fortress. I don't think it's the safest card to send most of the time though. Just send Intervention or Territorial Combat after 10 arqs and 11 changdao IMO

When you hit age 2, you had 21 vils, sent 9 pikes and got popped at 30 so you missed out on a couple vils of production. Instead you put a bunch of vils in que, then send military shipment. You’ll have continuous vil production.

Part of your army got stuck behind the summer palace for a while.

Thanks for the info. I am afraid to 1v him because I am scared of Germans a lot of the time as IRO but with this info I feel comfortable bashing him

Didn't watch the rec but greatscythe always seems to play with the same couple of BOs anyway. Standard 700c ff does work, and you can use wall to avoid getting caught by the dopps, and send mortar if he makes cannons. Also since he always plays on great plains you should always rush to take the middle tp before he can, and ship 300w first instead of cutting.

Best thing with him is that he never raids with uhlans just scout. Like you can have a lone herding vill getting surrounded by two uhlan but hes really commited not to raid xD
