I need a new ottoman strat.

I really have no idea what I am doing.

I would rather it have some economy but not focus it it extremely.

OR

I will switch to a more economical city.

The Ottomans aren't a economical civilization.
Yet, with the new TAD patch 1.01a, the upgrades are cheaper. The best way to use them economically it's FFing. Contrary to popular belief, their rush isn't so good. I advise you to FF against:
- The Dutch, because they'll build barracks and spam skirmishers, waiting for your jans, while you get to Fortress and get Veteran Janissaries, 2 Cannons, and more.
- The Iroquois, because they are an FFing civ, but expecting your rush, so semi-FF or FF and they'll be surprised and try to attack you ASAP just to be destroyed by falconets and Janissaries with +30%attack and hitpoints (Veteran upgrade+Card).
- Other civs expecting your rush.

If you want specific build orders you need or questions reply here or at my Ottoman Questions post.

Lol. Lol. Lol. No offense but I think it's funny.

FF stands for Fast Fortress. You try to get to the Fortress Age as soon as possible (ASAP).
FF's differ depending on what you need: fast cavalry, fast cannons, better jans, etc.

Build order for Jan Spam FF:

Discovery Age:

400 wood start: build trading post+house
300 wood start: build trading post+house, gather wood treasures or gather wood with vils.

All vils hunting, except if you can't find wood treasures.
Send 3 vils.
Age up with the Quartermaster (400) wood as soon as you can.

Transition

3-4 vils on coin, depending on if u started with no coin or 100 coin and also on treasures. Aim to have 300 coin as soon as you get to Colonial Age.
Rest hunting.

Colonial Age

If you have 300 coin, gather the 400 wood with the coin vils, who then go to hunting.
Send 700 coin card.
Build another trade post and research Stagecoach.
Age up with the 4 abus guns politician.

Transition

All Trade Posts on wood. 4 settlers on coin, rest hunting.
Send 700 wood card.
Collect the 700 wood, build barracks and 5 houses.
Start making jans ASAP

Fortress Age

Send 2 falconets card.
Research Veteran Janissaries.
Atack when it's researched, guard your falconets and abus guns.

Send Janissaries Improvement Card (+15% Attack and Hitpoints), 8 jans, fort, 1000 wood, etc.
