Ethopia strategy

Tue Mar 13, 2018 4:02 pm

Been playing Ethopia (mostly out of historical interest, I've been intrigued by the country's history ever since I read up on it from Civ 5) and I'm wondering: are there any more experienced Ethopian players who can help me figure out a good army composition?

I'm wondering if the Oromo Horseman / Tigray Lancers are worth using, since they're not affected by the military research, or are they better replaced by other gunpowder units mid-game? Or is it better to dedicate to a full turtle / Palace army with Sebastapols / Seftenya / Dimoftar?

I just joined the forum. Hi everyone.

From the little experience I have with Ethiopia, just massing Neftenyas and boosting their stats with cards and rushing infantry tech seems like an extremely powerful strategy.

Ethiopia is interesting, it seems to me like it's got potential to be massively overpowered compared to other civs, but it requires a ton of micromanagement of villagers, granaries and lots.

Just get that second TC and get free buildings forever.
