Haven't been posting here in a while but here it is, new china vs new otto, yukon map. I use to like this map but in this game the hunts didn't like me 0wn3d.gif
It seems that 2 villies + migration cards is a must-have for china, even if you have to task villies to gather wood earlier it won't retard your age up time (it was just me who messed a bit microing too much with hunts). I got almost 200 xp in treasures so I could use even sanctuary laws before hit colonial wub.gif
Early abus with jan backup is a bit scary for china but if you can prepare a solid defense with chinese nice eco you'll soon outmass him. In this game I used the british consulate instead of german, as I realize I needed more the hitpoints boost and its redcoats than resource trickles (sumptuary laws were helping already) and its doppels in this case.
Short game (15 mins I think) but an intense one with non-stop fighting and nice combat micro, intersting replay for captains or below who are learning china, wub if you like it.

Nice ending, wubbed for that. smile.gif Inventive ways to get your army in shape fast for a big counterattack. Few too many easy losses on your part, not enough attacking round the side on his, but overally not a bad game despite the short length.

Thanks for the review, cerby thum.gif Although I disagree my steppe charges were that bad, I had a good number of them and as you can check in the replays they were charging to jannies but were biting the "abuse" gunners as well, in fact I had to do it since it was the only way to keep the jannies busy while I'm firing with my CKN and with the steppe presence the abus gunners couldn't hit and run me. I admit I could charge heavier with my melee infantry but he could turn to cav, although it was unlikely because it would take time to get a number of hussars enough to threat me and I was quite calm with my eco, even willing to make it to age III to give some painful iron flail / arquebusier combo biggrin.gif
By the way...never seem you online again these times, cerby, u playing too much vanilla or busy with offline matters? We gotta practice more china vs aztec banana.gif

The problem isn't so much the charges, it's more that when you do, you get more janny than abus. tongue.gif
Of course, I realise he's gonna be watching too, and you can't always get a nice easy swing at loads of abus - but if you get mostly jans and he goes melee or probably even just attack move, you'll get a lot of dead cavs very quick. Take it from a fellow cav enthusiast who's done it himself too many times. wink.gif
And yes, it's ok in terms of stopping him from doing hit-and-run, I'm just worried you're giving him maybe -too- much for free... smile.gif
