Japan on ice... that was a pun, I meant water.

Post by Navarone_Guy »

You know you love my jokes! ;)

Anyway, I've noticed that Japan has a wicked water boom.

Age 1:
+25% fishing gathering, x2
3 fishing boats, x2
dock rickshaw, cheaper fishing boats

Age 2:
2 warships
5 fishing boats, x2
+30% fishing gathering
team 3 fishing boats

Age 3:
8 fishing boats, x2

I've been able to hold my own against 2 lieutenant-level players with my water economy. You can even get a huge water economy without even building a dock! You'd want to, though, to get fishing upgrades.
Groovy.

I always suspected Japan would have a good waterboom but had yet to have tried it out.

"All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near. Hold out baits to entice the enemy. Feign disorder, and crush him."
