I use Heavy infantry at the most. Sometimes I bring in arty, but very rarely. I like commanding my whole army at once, not in ETW though. Since I use the all around units... I am weak against arty. I only use horses when its needed, or when I play as porto.

@ SAOL: IV had a habit of caring for my men since I was young Mr. Green I would avoid casualties whenever possible, and tried to keep my men alive for as long as possible. In fact, I would make an "imaginary" veterancy system, which later blew my mind when it began to be implemented in RTS games today Surprised
Who wouldn't try to avoid casualties?

No, this is mostly men who don't ever make it more than a few steps from the training grounds. If I by mistake trained 5 soldiers instead of 4, and so on.

I usually make one main army, combined with a counter to what their counter is. For example, with sweden I use swedish fusiliers and culverins (They have splash damage area card)

The one civ I cant really do that is the Italians because of their variety.

In either case, I micro a lot, even in treaty games.

I am obsessed with even numbers... so armies always have 5 or 0 in the end!

As long as I have a balance of Heavy, Hand infantry and 1/4 of the units I have in either field for artillery, I am fine, I don't look for even numbers, but I always try to make a balance and use all my army, without leaving unused soldiers.

Winning with US is too easy BTW, just make some 10 gatling guns, some mortars and you're good to go.

Don`t forget that you can do a petard/miner rush in age 2 with card as US. Wipes out town center so quickly.

Yeah, but it leaves your economy on gathering coin at a standstill, and reuires you to have a rather strong army atm to clear up the rest Razz

Indeed, that's why I don't like rushing, if it doesn't work, you have screwed up your economy.

Heh, I find rushing quite effective. But now I come into a rather slow colonial, so its not so effective.

I am slow to age, so I never rush, I strike once I have a full fledged army and later in-game, never early.

I use any stealth unit to spy and check on my foe's strenght, then I attack with a force of nearly 170 pop of army.

120 is actually an intermediate army, not a big one.
