Tatars? Don't you mean Tabors?

also, as i pointed out earlier, AUSTRIA SUCKS. there is NO WAY they could counter an effective Cav, Artillery, Fusilier, or Highlander charge. Infantry is weak. The only good point is that the villagers are cheap. Rolling Eyes

Undeniable truth, an army of mine could easily squash yours, I don't use walls that much, so it would be rather pointless against me.

I use walls. And take long bombardement as a piece of it. The way for Austria to win is to make a deffensive assault. (Surround the enemy with walls.)

NO! You just have to use their instant cav for dragoons to counter other cav and to train grenzers very fast who kill all infantry units and together with dragoons also all the artillery! Also some (instant) hussars for raiding and with their faster grenadiers/horse grenadiers you easily destroy the enemie's walls!

Austria has many good cards from the homecity on a higher level. On a low level, they aren't that good, that's true, but with certain cards you have good advantages

I don't like poland because it is Cavalry based, Prussia is indeed powerful, Sweden is not so cheap, it is a strong civ, good cards, and royal guards for all units, that's quite good, they also have good pikemen.

Now, in all seriousness:

Besides being my home nation, the Americans look (haven't yet played the mod) the best.
They have a whole slew of interesting, and unique, economic units. They seem to really convey a "frontier" type feeling.

I guess all of the new civs are really powerful in their special way.
Mainly i play Americans and Swedes. Americans got the best and the most powerful ff that I ever seen before. And than spamming mounted refilemanand bam ...
or swedes... crunkest rush i ever seen .... sick shid ... 23 units after 6 minutes... and go ...
I like austrians too .... good defense civ ....Smile laming towers... do ff or FI ... or rush with them Mr. Green also nice
Swiss ... nc ... its ... so powerful ...you can play an early powerful rush or u can messing up eco ... second supplie wagon in the second age (like getting second bank with dutch) ... and than goes fortess .... also very beautiful....
...Poles ... nice cav civ ... but not my type ... germans and preussians ...i have to check them out Mr. Green
if u want to see someting of my strategies we can play on ESO most evenings.
greets
