Poland is the best civ the you can't beet its cavalry and the good thing for me is I'm Polish. I like to build up my cavalry then crush the trading posts with sappers after that I'll crush their colony. Oh for new players the must important polish building (besides the town center) is the stable.

tabor is not unique...(try austria's church techs...)!
i think the problem with poland is their cavalry!
a few doppelsoldners or swisspikemen or just normal pikemen will kill them very easily! also all their infantry units are crap; they do not have any skirmishers, so just use heavy infantry (with area damage)!

I agree with you, but this is just balance, the strenght of the poles is cavalry, so infantry is their drawback, after your comment I suppose you are and infantry civ lover, such as myself

Yes Polish the infantry isn't great but still cavalry is still much more powerful then other civs and a group of imperial winged hussar can easily destroy any other infantry and cavalry this dose include heavy infantry

i'm sure your winged hussar can't kill my swiss pikemen, that's impossible; with the upgrade card they have x6 against cav...
reislaufers have also x6 against cav and with the right cards they are instant and cheap(er)!
austria has instant dragoons; prussia has instant death's head hussars (very useful) and so on...
also these ronin -mercenaries are extremly powerful!
and i do not want to talk about the germans: free doppelsoldners with each shipment!
btw: does poland have instant cavalry?
although i said that their infantry is crap, their hand cannoners are strong indeed! with the church tech where they inflict area-damage they are good against big groups of heavy infantry! I think there should also be a card where they move faster and get somewhat more range (12)!

@masskiller: i like infantry more than cavalry but i love artillery!

I voted for Pancerini but I like this combo: Tabors with Fusilers, guarded by Partyzants. And the Pancerinis as a reserve, to give a huge devastating blow!

it doesn't mean that i biuld up just an artillery army ;D
but i just think that this portuguese guns are great and also the american gatlings-> (your) infantry sucks!
but in the end i like most units; there are also great cavalry units; i'm looking forward to a new winged hussar skin (hopefully) and of course death's head hussars and swiss guards/pikemen are great...

You mean mortar the church to dust before the enemy has a chance to use the technology?

Could be, but that is rather unlikely to happen, I mean that you can destroy most of the hard buildings before you strike to keep many units from dying before they should
