dont even have to add cav to the mix... if you can just have the muskets defend the gernadiers the entire time, they will do all the work.

its fun just watching anything blow up from gernadiers... i personally like when in a rush, the person sends 40+ muskets at me, and i send my 30+ gernadiers lol... i usually only loose 4-5... and well... they have to make another army.

no... when i get to a total of 40 gernadiers (on the march)... i start spamming pikes or halbreds... depending on the age... but i usually never get to, because most people either quit, or dont have enough time to make a new army.

well you have to remember... it takes gernadiers seconds to absolutely DESTROY a heavy infantry army... and most people, if they dont have one already built, will need to make a stable(about25) seconds... so you add that with the fact they have to train at least 5 cav (another 20 seconds)... that gives me a minute to get into thier base, and have all the fun i can dream of... and by the time they do have cav coming at me, i do my splash damage to the cav, loose maybe 10 gernadiers at most, when my pikes/halbs start to enter thier base.

i dont kno if ur playin below MS or sumtin but unless its 2v2 or 3v3 when someone is goin mainly cav most ppl alrdy hav some cav from a shipment or a stable up and make cav as soon as they see ur grens..

plus they should run away when they see ur grens... cuz they rnt super great in age 2 yet so they would lose mayb 20 men lol

Lol. I dont play many 2vs2 but would one person go cav and the other light inf? Or would it be cav and heavy inf? If they go light inf, they could hit and run the grenadiers. But i could understand why they run if they are heavy inf.

but everyone always makes HI. It's cheap, flexible and can hold it's own against anything except artillery. Hence the musket/hussar rush. Artillery? NOPE you got hussars HI? Your muskets will hold their own fine. LI? Hussars will rape. Cav? HI will rape.

It's a very sound strategy. Just slow at destroying the base. Hence having an ally with some gren always helps a tonne.

except in the time it takes u for an army.. i could hav musk/Lbow massed much more than u hav musk/hussar... and id rape ur army..

btw.. strelets beat musks in cost effieciency and when they outnumber the musks 2 to 1 cuz they got a multiplier... and strelets r the weakest units..

they have a multiplier if they outnumber?
since when?
and i think strelets are pieces of s***.
i'm a HUGE russia fan.
but strelet's eat balls.
I mass them only for the card which turns them all into muskets.
dude 80 muskets with 10 cossacks into a base as early as i get them
(no idea on the timing)
is almost unstoppable.

how did we get onto this?... yeah sterelets eat candy bars when muskets eat raw uncooked manly stuff.

but i somehow remember this springing up from me talking about my gernadier strat?

my gernadier strat is primarily a 1v1 strat, in 2v2 i do skirms + halbs or pikes(age).

but if it is a 3v3, then gernadier strat.

with the musk having first shot, he did.
however 10 strelets - 310 food? 160 wood? or something..
10 muskets 750 food, 250 gold.
cost effectively the strelets win as far as gold to power ratio goes.
however that's the thing about my strategy i don't mass muskets. i mass strelets. not keeping any spare resources for anything else. and once i have built my population to the brim upgrade them to muskets by sending the card which transforms them all. As they are marching and the card is being sent i age up, get veteran muskets and send them in to eat up the enemy base which i am well aware of as far as most strategic points of entry etc. due to my cossack raiding and hopefully my raids will have kept their economy down enough for the muskets to act as a final blow. (this usually happens) however, i have never played russia vs russia.
