  I agree with you JuanPaWarthon.
Mapuche's units are good against everything.They are, I think, the best civ in game.Their only weakness is thier Tribal council is weaker than others, but can still be using to explore. 
One of the most common strategies that I use is spamming villagers and ship food crates. On age 2, I spam Trangelafs. Once age 3 is reached, I start spamming Malons.
But new Haitians civ is even more brutal.

"That's why I tried to create Grenadies and Cannons backed up by skirmishers to counter them, but I fail every time."

Against fast melee units you need some strong front line units, like halbs or muskets (or equivalents).
Also, you should make use of huntables and mines in the early game instead of building farms and plantations. They produce much faster.

However, I do agree to an extent that the Huaminca is slightly OP... but only if you compare it to the Incas' other units. I think their units are a bit too weak in general.

Pretty sure you just need to hit critical mass with Heavy Infantry. They don't have a bonus against them, so it should work out. Alternatively, use anti-infantry Artillery. Things die quickly.

Definitely, I also do that sometimes, and yes, Haitians were more OP, but I think in the last patch they were nerfed. I really enjoyed massing Queen Mothers.

I agree with that, to me the Huaminca is fine, it's just the star unit among the rest of Inca units . The base Huaminca is actually slightly weaker than base minor native Huaminca.

How to counter Huaminca? Fast play and micro. I discussed this already on the Discord server

There are so many units that counter the Huaminca effectively. Even Mamluks counter Huamincas if you have a group of fellahs with them. Its all about killing them quicker preventing the most amount of possible hits to cavalry as possible. Since you can't out eco incas ever, your goal is to siege the ushnu while having good anti heavy infantry to kill trained huamincas. This is somewhat easy since the average spawn time is much more than say Russians or Spanish who can train certain infantry instantly.
