I was playing an Iroquois on Great Plains and we had been bogged down in fighting in the Colonial for quite a while. Despite the fact that he could mass more units than I could and the fact that he took out part of my city, I was still able to beat him back for two reasons: 1) I was Dutch with 8 banks going and he had no more gold sources and 2) I used Ronin mercs.

Use Ronin whenever possible, but only against infantry. They kick serious a$$. I took out about 20-25 ranged attack and heavy infantry units with just 5 Ronin and in less than 30 seconds.

They own anything which is smart enough to get close to them.

And the 120 seige is a pretty good bonus too.

A jaguar knight with all upgrades (but without firepit boost) can beat a ronin.

Play my scenarios! You won't believe how much fun they are!

^ individually, yes. In groups, no. Ronin have area damage

If you took out 25 ranged units with 5 Ronin, your opponent sucked without doubt. 4.5 speed and 0 ranged armor makes Ronin easy targets for every ranged unit in the game.

No, he doesn't suck, but he was focusing on siege and his guys were bunched up so my Ronin (with their amazing area damage) ripped through him. He was Iroquois, btw, and using Aenna. He also had some Tomahawks, but they went down just as quickly.

Whoa that seriously makes me ask what I'm going to do against Ronin as Aztecs.:/

I guess hit'n'run him to death with eagle runners.

I hate ronnin. There like Black Riders that can raid and siege. Have you seen them run and fight? I was british and i left my cannon behind my lbows, not in them. From the trees behind they sprung and before i could kill the 2nd ronnin all 6 cannon were dead. The cannon AI fire thing and splash damage. 3 twisting twirls of a ronin and bam dead.

4.5 speed is ver very fast. 0 Ranged armor is its down fall.

Lamer: Cause you'll be in 1 age ahead of the other guys and have a better eco, plus you can turtle and since its on your TC + couple of towers you can't go wrong.
Me: Uh, we're on the G Plains, how the heck am I gonna turtle?

Man... I have to wait until Age 4 to get any Ronin because I don't get them individually as a shipment, they only come with my Asian Merc Army card. But when I actually do play a game that lasts that long, my Asian + Meditterannean Merc Armies just rip everything up.
