where's brit tourney data. it's not a very popular pick
Idk about the whole tournament but for my series I played 4 brit games and won 3. It was definitely a very strong pick on some of those high res/easy to wall maps.

I didn’t say 80-20 but you’re overrating eco theory and skipping the shipment and underrating the trickle I think.

Why need 500f vs a rush? It doesn’t speed up the naked ff if you trickle which > rush. 400w for a semi sure but why semi? Delays ff for more trickle and TCs.

You should just play naked ff port for a day with trickle and 2v 2cow.

Callen is right, basically the same strats I've been doing, and they are strong, although with the semi-FI you don't even need to send 700wood. Might be too early to tell and most other civs been buffed, but the trickle card might need to be nerfed slightly, so it gives the same food trickle as the other res, and organs prob need to cost 200g. To compare Eco theory to any of this is nonsense. Also - aging up with elite shotle warriors is so hilarious, instant ez raiding

But are they still better than brits? highly doubt it

I hate trying to rush ports, CM is annoying enough to deal with even against one TC

Pretty sure 500f does speed up the FF simply because with 2v+2cow if you get idled you age later or can't age at all.
Semi FF delays the trickle but idling vills because the opponent is doing 5 huss semi and you have no answer to that is just as much of an eco loss, actually more.
Naked FF with the new stuff is great if you get away with it completely untouched. Sensible opponents will try to disrupt your build without investing too much (unless it's an all in rush which btw sounds risky if you don't save an extra shipment for units).
I'll test the new Ports anyway to get a feel of how much the new stuff improves their builds.

good points unironically. i forget huss semi exist unironically.

OK then 500f up, but still send the trickle. Actually with trickle maybe you do 400w for musk semi like big jay pee see suggeshtsh.

Russia has always been a counter to brits. Just most noobs ship 5 cossacks and start 5 musk and go in vs a tower and tc and 5huss/musk and dont setup their win condition at all
