I always play as the Iroquois and I hardly ever produce Musket Riders. EVER.

With strats based around Scouts, Outlaws, and now even Tashunke Prowlers, this question gets harder to answer every day.

Sadly, today the answer might be most of the Minor Natives. Hopefully that'll change at some point.

- BWKiC - A British Fast Fortress strategy
- The Aztec Scout Slam- An Envoy Rush, Native-Style

Culverins and Cav Archers. Culverins are ok, but Abus are better. Cav Archers just suck.

I never really use WW's. Is that a bad idea? I would really like to know if i should use them more.

In fortress, I prefer them above Doppels for anti-cav.

I never, ever use Manchu Horse Archers.

i never make it to industrial, so any unit that you can build there. I never use pikemen either. Muskets always seem the better choice (unless sieging).
With iroq i never build anything but prowlers, as theres just no need. :P

I don't use a lot of grenadiers. Unless I'm playing Brits or Russians, in which case the units have sucky siege and I need siege.

I also hate all cav archers. I just don't like em. I find WW's to expesnsive for my liking. I'll try them again though...Their better than dragoons, but 3 pop imo)... I use Dopps a lot, they have good attack, good siege, and deal area damage. Hey Mediolanus your deck is Great! It helps a lot. Txs

Russian Halberdiers
Dutch pikes
Sioux Bow Riders (Rarely ever use them even though they're much better anti cav than RR)

I had to think long and hard, and came to Hackpells.

I dont ever use them, nor from shipment nor when I get them from the saloon, I never ever use hackpells.

Spahi and Nootka clubmen for me.

My most used unit, by far, is the Tomahawk. All I did was toma rushing when I was Iro :s

I barely ever use Bow Riders for some reason. As Sioux I tend to stick to RR's/Wakina and some AR's in fort, and Cetans/Clubs/AR's in colonial.

I don't like using mortars because they take long to train, and are effective against buildings an nothing else. Falconets seem better because they can attck units and building fairly well

Some people did expect the Spannish Inquisition, the writers. Other than the writers. Otherwise, NOBODY EXPECTS THE SPANNISH INQUISITION!!! Well, there is the Queen, and the people carrying it out. Ugh...
