When i first played online on ESO i used the Spanish. I did terrible in my first25 or 40 games and had a low win %, since i stopped lvling them at 36.I never really utilized Spanish for what thier strong points were i guess ^^

After that I used german for 50 games and won 40 of them or something like that, i also used british and won 50% of my 40 games w them, and played i think 30 something games with Russia and won more than 75% with the motherland. Im currently trying Dutch =D

I started with British for two games in which I won one and got destroyed in the other. Then I moved to French and currently I play French, Dutch and Ports.

I started with German, then went to Dutch --> went to Russia, but I'm bad with them, sort of used Spain, but I'm using German again.

I first used Russia, after about 20 games started experimenting with other civs, played germans for about 20 games, and now I play Russia and Germans at about a 2:1 ratio repectively.

I've always played russian. I've got two barely-levelled other cities: german and port. I don't know why.

Rookie civ was russia, almost every game I lost with Russia was when I was just learning the game.

French was second it helped me to realise that booming was most important (I was a C&C player before AoE3) so after them I went to spain then dutch then germans and brits and evetything else except otto

I started with the french. Got up to level 10 or so then started playing Spain, Germany, and French and a little russia. Maybe like 3 games with french, then two with those civs, then three more with french, then another two with w/e civ of those I felt like.

I like switching it around, keeps things interesting for me.

I used Portugal and sometimes Spanish, but usually Port....

Portugal then germany then a smattering of others now ports again.

French (I'm so ashamed!) -> Germans -> Russians -> Ports -> Dutch

Now i randomly play as 1 of the latter 4 depending on my mood and the map type.

My rookie civ for the full version was the Ottomans. After more than three months of playing the game (not counting a few weeks that I spent playing the demo before the game came out), I still play like a rookie.

My first civ was the British (offline) because I thought their civ bonus rocked and they get REDCOATS! Soon after I bought the real game I used the Dutch.

I started out with French, and at the time I had no idea the French is supposed to be the OP civ. I chose them for their strong villagers which would make me less vulnerable to raiding and rushing, two of the things I hated the most in AoK.

^^ dito, played a couple of games with british i think and kept getting rushed. So then I heard french vils were harder to kill so changed to them to avoid getting owned so bad. Later, once hearing french were OP, tried russian and dutch and a little of everything.

I've only really played British. I have a French and a German HC also, but haven't really used them.

I sensed spanish power from the demo, and by the time the full game came out I was already pretty good with them by practising at the demo and won most of my games right from the start. However compared to no, I still sucked back then.

Spain was my rookie civ though, then I moved to ports to see what all this ports is UP talk was about, and discovered they were UP after playing almost 200 games with them, went back to spanish where I started my own FF strategy that happened before the FF craze took off (i would shudder to think it was I who started the FF craze)

After FF became the new 'strategy to beat' I switch to Brits and I think I finally found my favourite civ, tried dutch but I think they suck. Soon I will have most games played as brits ^^

I started off as France, but I left when I saw how OP they were. Then I took up Germany long before the FF craze. I have stuck with them since. Germany FTW!

The Ottomans were win percentage with them was about 60% even though I wasn't that good. Back then, no one seemed to be able to fend off an Ottoman rush.

I started with Portugal, after a few games I changed to Spain, got bored and started playing with the British for a pretty long time, and now I've been playing with Germany.

Russia to lvl 45 or so then tried dutch/german to only low levels then went to Spain and have it at around 45 now aswell. I plan on continuing to use spain. My win % and rating have jumped considerably since switching from russia^^
