Enjoying the new Lakota?

Post by ShinkuroYukinari »

Personally, I find their cav strats to be more or less the same, if anything with a stronger start thanks to the guaranteed Teepee and Hunting dogs. You don't even feel the loss in vil cards TBF.

And late game all the little changes add up quite nicely, especially the teepee ones if you get it up quickly. That attack speed aura in particular is so nice for Rifle Rider spamming, letting such a hard hitter hit even harder.

Unfortunately I didn't get to try the infantry strats yet, and I do wonder if anyone tried them out as such? Been mostly doing the classic AR/BR into AR/RR strategies

that not about teepee and hunting dogs, you have 200w dude just gather 50w and you have tp and teepee, i mean......... and if you find coin treasure quickly you can market tp and teepee.....

Hmm, good point. I'll need to try that out in my next game, tho the market teepee has been serving me well.

With the new native TP change it looks like you can walk your explorer up to one, start the auto-build for 100f 100w, then right-click the explorer onto it to build it conventionally. The build time is the same as usual and they give 0.35XP/s, so half a church or about 1/3 of a trade route TP.

I'm wondering if a native TP for 100f 100w is a real alternative for civs that would otherwise need to chop a lot. Lakota might be able to do the market + TP + teepee this way (treasures or mine for 75c, then buy 100w), France can do a TP start without chopping, China might be able to do TP and 2 villages, and so on.

On top of that you'll have a limited military building that you can use to train units right at the start of age 2 and if the nats are suitable maybe do a semi-FF without any regular military building.

Are TP and teepee pronounced identically?

I'm playing the new lakotas as a team, mostly without the card 5 seattlers have a slightly slower eco so I notice that these changes focus a lot on boosting the eco more in the mid game and nerfing the cavalry a little in 2 ages without the defense card, the latter mainly I do not like very much. The change in the cost of the axes in my opinion is senseless for team but perhaps also for 1v1. The TP change from lakota seems to make a native rush more viable as you invest 100f and 100w for a TP and it's cheaper than before. In my opinion the Lakotas precedent were better than now, they only needed small economic nerfs as their economy was too good as a team.

However they are still quite good on a team and still do their dirty work. I like the change of teepees as it makes civilization less monotonous and more macro manageable.
