Australia vs Habsburgs

Wed Oct 25, 2017 11:22 pm

After quite some matches with people in Gameranger, I've come to realize that Australia and Austria are quite similar civs in regards to their powerful, pop-expensive units. The only difference being that all of Austria's units are mercenaries.

However, it has been quite difficult for me to defeat the Austrians while playing Australia, mostly, because of the aussie eco. Now keep in mind I'm talking about the land eco, on sea, Australia is a whole different story, but on land it struggles quite a lot.
Both civs have expensive troops, the things is, Austria has a much better starting and late game eco due to the princesses age up bonuses, plus the Hospital. Australia while having nice eco cards and Animism as a religion, cannot quite stand on equal ground with the Austrians and their eco.

Australia's answer to Austria, the Aboriginal Tracker, comes way too late (Age 5) and convicts as we all know, gather slower the more there are,
I'd like to know whats the specific gather work decrease penalty of convicts and how to counter such a powerful faction like Austria in early-mid game (Ages 2-4).

There must be a strategy that makes the 'strayans' able to catch up.

Try to rush them, you can attack faster than the Habsburgs.

Aboriginal Trackers are available in age 4, not age 5. Also, the rum corpsman and revolving cannon are exceptional against austrian units.
