Hi im new to the forums but not to aoe3. Well not that old of a player but thats besides the point. just waiting for the right moment to post a topic.

Well, the other day i was playing a gainst a Sioux and i did my british FI and had 99 villies working their butts off trying to make a military unit that can counter the rifle rider!! does anyone know what counters it because i looked around and couldnt find a topic. it counters heavy infantry so pikemen are useless, cavalry, so thats useless, and artillery. What else is there??? O_o

Light infantry, such as skirmishers, cetan bows, longbows, cassadors, strelets, x-bows, any native LI, Forest Prowlers, Wakina Rifles...all of them.

Back in an old patch they all got a bonus vs Ranged Calvary at range, so that they can't just hit and run everything.

Also, Ranged Calvary itself isn't too bad against Rifle Riders, and if you have a lot of LI, protection from calvary is a good idea.
