Correction - Nav is OP not India. It was a mirror after all.

Just looking at graphs, it looks like he waited just a second too long to raid, and let your military catch up. Wild speculation, of course.

I made the mistake all going all yumi, not to mention it was 2:20am and I was incredibly tired.

Trust me, I don't usually lose to Corporals... :)

I think you're still tired, since this is not the right topic I guess ^^

I think he resigned too soon..looking at the stats he had all his vils and could have shifted to ashi's..probably wasn't challenged on the water..

Kill/loss ration was obnoxious though..

I just think India was underplayed in 1.01.

And their OPness isnt lame like some previous OP civs, it basicly comes from a perfect counter system. ANd some OP facts like 10/10 strat (you always need to watch out for that), Ranged cavalry in age 2, Urimi....

It is lame when their eco that booms by itself allows them to spam 209 hp sepoys that you can barely counter and then they add sowars just for the fun :\

You can counter the 10/10 Sepoy rush. Sure it's hard, but when you did it and go for the agra fort you nearly won the game.

only if they suicide their army on your defense, if they pull back on time and add some camels to kill your LI, you're still in trouble.

as aztec I was able to push back L&C's 10/10 rush, but it wasn't easy.

Yep but as an xbow civ you need to practically sacrifice your own economy to counter it. Aztec have at least got a decent HI counter.

I could counter the 10/10 even with ports, the problem is their eco good and even better units.

Let's not forget that a sepoy needs 5 shots to kill an xbow while a xbow needs 10 shots to kill a sepoy, just an example of how good sepoys are.

Well, Aztecs are damn good now. The 2 skull knight politician is now amazing, along with all their others. Macehualtins are also beasts now.

Also, it takes a sepoy 6 hits to kill a musket, while it takes a musket 9 hits to kill a sepoy.
Groovy.

And, Aztecs can get a free barracks instead of the skull knights. That means the wood they've been collecting can be used for mace and coyote. Crank out the 3 jags for decent cav protection. Not a bad option for Aztecs.

IF you can do what Ourk did, and get to age III without getting killed, get the 4 skull knight shipment and mix in with coyotes or mace...will be hard to defend against that. He did the same BO for two games with the same great results. Then again, he makes any BO work like a charm.
