Yea they dont. Think about the british manor boom while having 8 hussars(5 from stable and 3 from hc) cuasing destruction on you at like 6 mins. It would be op.

Hmm i have never heard of a "brit lamer". Right now we have muskets, pikes and longbows as inf..... not much choice in later ages. But whatever it doesnt matter cuase it wont change.

You think so? it is a lot harder than it looks. Boom too hard, and you have no military when the rush comes. Boom not enough and you loose your advantage of being able to boom. You have to know when to boom and when to stop each game.

No its best to boom first. Like lets say you want to make 6 houses. Make them first then while making a few troups, then go all out army. And you can only have 2 or 3 houses up after you age to age 2 if you want a barracks and stable.

True it is easier(if only we could play each other once). Hey check the post i just made. Shows how many times you are right, lol. But i think its better to boom first cuase you can go triple rax musket spam if you have a great econ like 30 settlers by like 7:47 mins(is possible). And if your rush fails, Boom! You have more than enough reasources to make more units. Maybe its better for you to rush and me to boom, just how our styles are.

u like rush games... true u av a great eco.. but y wouldnt u go age 3 while ur doin tht good? age 3 gives u a major advantage and presses them to age too

8 mins i can hav like 27 vils for a rush as russia... wit a manor boom and nonstop vils from TC and shipments.. couldnt u get closer to 40 as brits?

Well not sure as i dont ussally do a full boom much. Btw british fast fortress is the worst in the game. Only thing you get is falconets. Everything else that is good you have in age 2(muskets and hussars).

British dragoons are ok. Muskets are more cost efficent and better for the british. But i see what you are getting at. I would rather max out houses than age for a tc becuase, its more cost efficent 6oowood for 10 pop and villies or 12 houses for 1000 wood(thanks to card) and 120 pop and villies.

btw i tried this earlier.. @ 9 mins as brits.. i had completely maxed out manors... had 46 vils at 9 mins wit 20 musks and 10 LBs... and had the resources to age to 3..

i dont use the card to make manors cheaper usually either.. and yes i agree.. max out manors b4 aging..

well since i know somewhat of a good british eco boom/army boom... ill post it... im not going to go into detail... but ill give you the bare bones.

at about 8 min i would have about 40 muskets OR 30 lb and 30 muskets, with 40 settlers(depending on how army production is focused) 10-20 on food 10-15 on wood... and 10 (and making more) for gold. manors maxed out at 7 min... half of which are made before and during aging to age 2.

dont go age 3 till 40 muskets have been made... and at least 20 settlers on food.

Oh i did say you could get 40(i might have said 30 but i wasnt thinking if i put that) villigers at 8 mins. I just didnt mention anything about an army but that didnt mean you couldnt do it. You can have 26 villies by 5 mins with the british(Your age up is 30 secs later though). Sorry if i posted the wrong thing.
