Hello everyone? Just got started into this mod, and... Well, because of the AoE 3 home city systen( Which I hate ), I decided I should decide on a civilization to focus on, for at least the first few months. But I cant quite decide on which. So I decided I would ask all of you for help! But first, a few tid bits of information about my general plaiyng style:
-On the original game, my favourite civilization was the Indians. Mostly for the elephants.
-I have a certain preferrence for "Quality over quantity" where my units are concerned. In particular, I have a thing for units that are relatively slow, costly, but also incredibly bulky. ... Probably why I used to like the Indians so much?
-When possible, I prefer defensive strategies, but I reckognize they are not always pratical to use, especially on a game such as AoE 3, which rewards so strongly early agression and rapid expansion. So, while I like to have the option to stall to the late game, I would prefer a civilization whose early game is still good enough to at least shrug off early rushes without many losses.
-Although, thematically, I dont have a problem with meele infantry units( Like the Halberdier ), frankly, I found myself almost never using then. I just find it they have a bad habit of diyng before they get to do anything usefull, and Musketeers, or their counterparts, tend to be usually better. However, I reckognize the power of the Doppelsoldner and Samurai as specialized, powerfull ani-heavy cavalry units. They are circunstancial, but still, they are amongst the few units that can send Cuirassiers running.
-Above all, I like civilizations with odd plaiyng styles, that make one have to "think outside the box". In fact, that is the whole reason I chose to install this mod :p
