What’s the best civ or units to counter Hasburgs?

Thu Jul 12, 2018 10:39 am

I played against my friend who plays Hasburgs all the time, and I can’t seem to counter him. I’ve used spies, currisers, fully upgraded French, Dutch, Germans, US...etc Their eco is crazy good with banks and villigers, crazy defense with infinite forts, and all their units are so strong.
Can anyone who made the mod give me suggestions of what civ to use or units to make to counter such a powerful civ??

  I think you should use rush tactic since they are pretty weak at start, until they age up.
There are also lots of tactics to counter them.
1. Using Mapuche or Sioux siege tactic rush could end them quickly.
2. Spaming Zulu's Isukhulu but you really need a powerful eco and maybe, Spainish ally send ''Infantry Hand Attack'' shipment and Bulgarians ally send ''Covered Bridge'' for hand attack and speed increasing.
3. Inca's Huaminca spamming.
 Moreover, I think you should wait for someone who are good at this game reply to get better advice.

I had a game against the Japanese AI recently as the Habsburgs, and they were very annoying. At the consulate, when you have the Japanese ally, you can buy Ninja who have a x10 modifier against mercenaries.

Oh nice! You’re right, they age pretty slow, I’ll try the native tribe rush, since they are so fast with rushes.

I didn’t know ninjas had crazy modifiers. Can you only build them from consulates?? That would be limiting since they only come out of one building.

In the late game try to use the Italians, his special unit (the "mafioso"), is excellent against mercenaries if you search the technology "Tommy Gun"

The Mapuche also have the Huampelen very early in the game if you wanna cheese.

What about the Germans rush with Grenadiers and Uhlans ? I have tried it against AI and it worked very well.

US Militia is the ultimate answer to everything.

Like for real? I don't think so. What can you do with NA Militia?
