You saw me in ONE game. That's hardly enough to judge a player.
Groovy.

I voted Brits, but Aztec and Japan are right up there too.

This patch seems pretty intense.

They are beefing up cav against former LI, so it'll be cool to try out a huss strat and see if they mow down like they are supposed to. The new age 3 politician for Brits seems helpful, but still like not enough help. Overall former LI is going to be a lot stronger versus HI, so muskets will become even more useless in early team games.

On the Aztec side of things, my warrior priests are going to train a lot faster, and maces are going to train faster and hit HI harder. The WP dance improvement helps a lot, but I dont think faster train time will help coys and maces much. The negative multiplier for former LI versus coyotes should help a lot though, it will be interesting to see.

And finally Japan. With a MAJOR early eco upgrade, maybe Ill finally be able to figure them out!

[quote=""I__CHAOS__I""]I don't think you really played aztecs KK... except for puma rush or BB where it's easy BO
the macro involved is huge. Brits is a joke compared to aztecs.
Their units may be cheap, but their are weak as wel, so no, you can't afford to lose em and still be OK from my experience.

with the up coming patch, the micro part will be even harder than ever[/quote]

I used to play aztecs and to be honest I found them quite easy to micro and macro :D

Micro I agree, but macro it probably suited your style because otherwise it is hard.

I played Japanese before the patch, and I will play Japanese after the patch. I would even still play them if they got nerfed. I really like Japanese history and culture.

I'll throw a few games with Chinese and Indian into the mix since I have been doing that before, too.

I just don't like the European Civs so much, don't know why. Native American are ok, but I like the TAD Civs most.

I've been playing some games as aztec and I have to disagree about their macro. Firepit makes everything easier.

I may have to change my entry. I've gone back to my Russians and had good success, and I'm trying to learn Aztec's.

I've been reading too much Dr Seuss to my kids....


I will play the Japanese
No other civs, just look at these.
And, I will play them in a box
And, I will play them with a fox
And, I will play them on a train
And, I will play them in the rain
I will play the in a boat
And, I will play them with a goat
I will play them here and there,
I will play them ANYWHERE.
I do so like the Japanese,
I'll grant you mercy, if you say PLEASE

Originally voted Ports, but my short sad experiment with the Ports has come to an inglorious end. Going back to Brits for a while. :)
