Also the Prussian cav is very strong (although they should be famous for their infantry):

[they have also cards for dragoons and polish hussars, so i'm looking forward to stronger hussars Devil )

Remember Poland has access to Russian and Prussian cav,(some of it). And hussars should be way strong for Poland.

On a rush, but in a full fledged war it's quite hard to beat them, which is what I like, I have never liked rushing.


Yeah, my parents are sort of like that. Sad Not much, but some.

they just can get Uhlans once a time and cossacks are just strong because they just need one pop each (and train faster than hussars)!
they also can't get ops, who are the most useful cavalry for doing other stuff than killing skirmishers and archers!

Prussia has a good combination with DHH (again: killing all heavy cavalry units) and the Uhlans who perform perfectly (better than cossacks of course) agains skirmishers! Also both are strong against artillery (Uhlans because of their armor and high damage) and DHHs because of their speed and their bonus!

and yes, spahis are stronger than gendarms! But who can get gendarms faster, in greater number and cheaper!

Just the new civs are well balanced (although austria, prussia and poland do completly different things as they should do:
-prussia: strong cavalry; should have strong infantry, and all units should be stronger in melee (higher bonus than normal contries)
-poland: weak cavalry; should have strongest cavalry
-austria: some unique units, but definitly no multiculturial empire (parts of italy, austria, poland, hungary, czech repunlic, ukrain, bosnia, croatia etc.)! But they just have cards/units for austria, hungaria and this Grenzers (who are too from hungary and croatia)!
But all the old ones are quite weak now:
Spain: no strong eco and no strong units
portugal: lots of disadvanteges except their dragoons
russia: weakest units and lot sof other countires can now train units instant too!
All the new countries have one card for better mills and plantations; the old ones need two for the same effect! Also these mixed canon/grenadier-foundry-cards are just available to the new nations! Also the old nation's cards do not effect their new units...

Yeah Poland should and must have the best cav in the game. It's kind of unfair that Prussia has strong cav and infantry.

Prussia?-No, they may not have the best eco but it's not bad at all! And because of their strong settlers it's difficult to raid/rush them!

Prussia was one of the most balanced country of the age. Strongest inf and strong cav.

Poland should have the best early cavalry ever, but France should get the 1st place late in the game (Napoleonic cavalry: Grenadiers a Cheval, Carabineers, Cuirassiers, Dragoons and Polish refugees)

Well at the moment I'm thinking of Poland because I'm Polish and the civ isn't perfect so it has some bugs. I also play as Prussia or America. At the moment I want stronger Polish cav!

Yeah, Poland is not very good balanced but the have a strong eco! With their explorers and their fields they are very good in the first two ages but later it's going to be difficult because of the weak polish soldiers!
The most unbalnced civ is still austria! Weaker soldiers than other countries but not as cheap and fast training as russian ones! Also they have a quite weak eco; their cheap settlers have nothing to do with it because they aren't trained faster and there is still a settler-build-limit! Their defense is really weak!
Maybe most people do not know but keeps/forts are not very strong! Just a few Lange Kerls (who can get x3,3 against buildings) or mortars and the forts doesn't exist anymore! Also Austria isn't historical accurate: false flag (same as poland) and they aren't multiculty! again the parts of austria: italy, austria, hungary (who were the best soldiers in the monarchy; austrians were just good riders except hussars who were always from hungary or croatia), Poland, ukraine, croatia, bosnia (later), CZ,SK,SLO...
