Civs Nemesis

Sat Mar 25, 2017 4:56 pm

Do you think that in WoL there are civs that are just perfect to counter another specific civ? Are nemesis civs paired and complement each other? Or there is a huge rock-paper-scissors design between the nations portrayed? Here's the place for the discussion.

I will start, my Egypt is   Russia because of their defensive bonus that makes them hard to knock down as they may have more blocaos than any other civ outpost at any time,  then you will have a hard time rushing; but if you let them go late-game, you're doomed.

So, what do you think? I am not a regular player so I must be mistaken . So, is there another Egypt Nemesis? Is Egypt other civ's nemesis? Are you sure of any other in game rivalry ?

As I understand it, the main point of Egypt is to rush early game with your many Fellah. Because of your sort-of-mediocre lategame, you can't really afford to let many nations get to their lategame. Judging a nation's ability to counter you based only on its ability to punish you if you fail seems kind of misguided. I'd look more at civilizations that can prevent you from rushing them.
