In majority, do you use QS or Hosted Games to find yourself a game?

Hmm, I couldn't really classify one civ or another as "decent" on vanilla, but for my part I generally use the Germans, Brits, Spanish and Ports. Vanilla cassadores do some unholy damage to all infantry, which obviously got a big time nerf early in the game's history; it is fun to use them in a vanilla colonial militia FF. I had a nice Port game against a vanilla Otto 1st Lt. the other day in QS.

Whenever I play vanilla I feel I am stepping into a simpler time... no ashis, no sowars, no disciples, no converted treasure guardians and no water dances... and how simple was life with only 20 cards!! :D

All great reasons for going back every once in a while. Now if we could only get the maps for TWC and TAD in 'nilla...

I do need to warn anyone who does QS on TWC, though: Be prepared to fight super-lame Dutchies who get 7 starting vils, 280XP to build a bank and skirms that can kill cav 8O
