what's with tilanus?

Yes, upgrades are necessary if u want a certain win. I usually train a few soldiers, but they're fully-upgraded. Of course, u need a strong economy for that.

I like austrians very much. I have played a lot with them. and i have them on level 51
They are very strong if you play so quick, because if you have a lot of practice, they can be so strong.
At the start, 2 or 3 settlers on food and the others on wood. When you receive the first card, advance with the card that costs 400 of wood. Then, put the settlers between food and gold, to advance the sooner the better to the 3rd and the 4th age, making some deffense towers Use always settlers cards. When you are in the 4th age, use the austrian fort cards, and you can attack, sending the ronin card, and the two better mercenaries cards. Attack with some mercenaries, because they are the stronger troops of the austrians, and they are very strong in the 4th age, because the other players will be probably still on 3rd age.
Finally, you can advance to the imperial age, to send a incredible ronins and other mercenaries to finish the enemies. You can also do some natives, and using the native cards you can build a native embassy in front of your enemy and spam natives to him.
I think that the infantry are not very strong, so its better to do mercenaries, who are the best of the game

i dont know what means sandbox (i think is the easy difficult), but i play on expert and with other friends and i dont have very much problems with pop.
If you are austria, you have more resources than others, because you advance faster and have more settlers.
If you are attacking the other players all the time, you havent got any problems with pop. If you are doing the turtle, there is when you have problems with that.

When anybody can, i want to play some games with hamachi Smile, you can see how good are the austrians in the right hands.

And one more thing: the italians are Very overpower. They can reach the imperial age in 10 minutes, and then they can kill you with ronin instant on the 15-16 minutes. They also can, if they want, to made a blockade in the 20 minutes on a 4v4 game. In the right hands, they are so powerfull.

Sorry for my bad english Smile

Austrians are really good. I think their strength lies in the cheap settlers. This gives you extra food to build military in beginning. they also have a different villy distribution. Less guys on hunt means less losses to raid.

Their fortification are really strong as well. It provides Austrian with decent map control in beginning. Once they fix the keep build limit problem, The Austrians will be a powerhouse in early game at least.

I'm currently working on a rush strategy with them. I'll post it ASAP
