Stand back, sweep the armies off the field with cavalry swarms, then build up to a super cavalry army then sweep their cities off the field. Rinse, repeat.

If you can handle many things at the same time, and willing to sacrifice a few cards, poland is the best livestock nation of all. Super cheap, super fast fattening cows that are harvested really fast. Once you have the whole system up, 5 settlers is all you need on food, and you will still have plenty. It will give you a very strong economy, allowing you to do almost whatever you want.

Yeah Dismounting Dragoons would be stronger versions of longbowmen, counter infantry, but they are much stronger. Later they can be upgraded to skirmishers.

Perhaps they could get an upgrade called "Mounted Skirmishers" where they then get the ability to dismount and change from anti cavalry to anti infantry.

Dragoons also need new skins, they didnt wear full body armor in Imperial.

Most civs had dragoons as mounted archers that dismounts to fight. Some had them as mounted skirmishers. with a tech they become mounted skirmishers.

The old dragoon would be called the Carabiner now.

mounted archers are NOT dragoons. Cavalry Archers appear from the Antiquity, in many civs...

Dragoons were infantry armed 1st with hand guns and arquebuses, later with muskets and carbines. They ride to the fight, and then dismount and form a line

Some armies used them as bowmen, that's their age 2 form, age 3 becomes their normal form, with guns.

The word "dragoon" is derived from the French Army designation dragon which was originally the name of a type of firearm (whose name means dragon) carried by French dragoons. In French, Portuguese, (Romanian) and Spanish there is no distinction between the words dragoon and dragon.


Dragoons are not mounted archers.

they do become skirmishers later on though, in fortress and imperial.

I didnt say they had bows and arrows, but they did dismount more than any other cavalry in the army (perhaps more than cossacks)
