Ok that sounds good. Your best option is probably to scout and if you see stables, destroy them as fast as you can.

Na russians suck late game.

The russians anti infantry unit is the strelet. The russian musks suck. Therefore the Russians depend on cavalry late in game. If the enemy makes musks, your screwed.

I have yet to find a way to fend of a bunch of muskets. Maybe a field gun spam? Supported haliebers maybe?

But thats your only option.

um strelets kik musk ass.. cav archers kik their ass.. dragoons.. other musks..skirms..

russians r awesome late game.. wit a good eco (99 vils ofc) instant infantry will own most civs.. and it depends on if ur talkin LI or HI cuz cav kills the light inf. and ranged cav/light inf kills the heavy inf..

late game russian musks r good cuz they can build forts (on TAD ofc)

faze im lookin for a good anti cav age 2 strat for them....

comanche has 10% faster cav and 10% HP boost to cav

cheyyenne has the instant cav thing

and tht is y russia is one of the best DM civs


AND OMFG IM TALKIN AGE 2
if im talkin age 3 for cav archers i would jus make halberds cuz thye r cheaper than cav archers -.-"

ya their really isn't much their is there? No pikemen, haliberts are age 3?

Muskets are weak.... The only thing that I can think of (which I'm sure you knew of a long time ago) is to cav spam them right back. Just hold them off, get to age three, spam haliberts and game over. But its easier said then done... WAY easier said then done.

nah i can pull of a semi FF wit like 20 cossacks... but they make like 10 pike (very cheaply too) and take advantage of my cav xD

20 hussars + 10 pike= bad turnout for a russian

i find it semi effective to keep like 15 cossack and mayb 10 musks in front of liek 50+ strelets cuz then anything dies pretty fast... losin 13x50+ HP each shot so..
