Maybe nobody wants to play Germany when Prussia is existing?! ;D
The problem with Switzerland is that they are very weak at all (just strong in melee and just one cavalry unit)!
btw: bets nations for me are Austria (guess why), Prussia and Poland...

I do like Poland because it's my country, and it's a really good civ. I like cav. I don't like America (Civ) that much because I always loose if I play as them. I also like Prussia a bit.

I'd have to go with Prussia. Skirmisher-type units work best for me. That or Switzerland or Sweden. I goddamn HATE Austria.

I hate it too, I can't play using a defensive strategy, and that's the only thing Austria works for

Yeah they kind of do with all cav bonuses Poland has access to. And Poland can have Russian cav as well. Poland can also have Uhlans. Russia and Prussia have really good cav, not so sure about France. And in real life Poland has strong cav. Famous for it man. I really think the Winged Hussars or Husaria and Pancerni need to be stronger. I mean those were the main cav types. They also should have the "scare" abtily like the Deaths Head Hussars. The Polish Winged hussar helmet actuality represented the death. And The Wings add onto to the fear. Not sure they wore them in battle though.

Yeah, i always wanted a stronger hussaria! ! Also a card for fearing units (but just infantry;and maybe increase their speed) whould be great!
Poland can get russian cavalry?-Which one?
Russia has Cossacks, the strongest cav unit (just one pop), ops and France has cuirassiers!
Poland has this weak lnacers, very unuseful, their hussars are a bit stronger than other countries one's, normal dragoons, and pancerni who are very weak (because of their low armor) and are very expensive! Tabors are nice but too expensive and not very useful for fighting but you can use them good for shipments and training units during the battle and next to the battlefield!

@masskiller: If you use Austria as a defensive you will loose a lot of games! They are more like russia: a lot of cheap units! But you are also able to boom (better as british players, 'cause you can get a second TC in the second age and with the card which discreases settler's train time they win nearly every game)!

well yeah, but I tend to go more for military than for economy, I always make from thirty to fourty settlers, nothing more, I tend to exhaust my economy everytime I advance in age, and when it grows, it goes straight for military, I build up an army until Age 3 and start strenghtening my economy to make a huge army that will squash my foes.

I like Austrians best (not only because I'm Austrian myself). I just like the cheap strong defense, together with a few cheap Grenzer you can defend yourself really well until you reach further ages (the low price of settlers are good for this too), then you can build the strong line infantry, which is- together with some Grenzer, Landsknechte, Pavese crossbowmen (saloon) and Artillery- really strong. With this Army, you can (because of Landsknecht- units) breach through walls very fast. I attack with these units at the front and as soon as possible I send some Conscripts (or however the name of the university mass unit is) and Cheveux legères when my army reached his town, to extinct him^^.
