Chu Ko Nus probably cost a lot.
1 arrow=5
so if it were 3 arrows Chu Ko nus would have a mere 15 attack.

Getting back to the point of the thread, Japanese, because the Samurai are going to be awesome and because of the Daimyo. Since the Daimyo can train units (I think) you'll be more able to keep the battle near their base as you can stick the Daimyo just out of the range of their towers, it'll be sweet to not have to send your army all of the way across the map.

Yes but Janissary if you watched Chinese vid for 3 Chu Ko Nus and 3 Qiang Pikemang 255 Food and 180 wood which is like 42 food 30 wood a unit so thats why id think a Chu Ko Nu would only have 3 or 2 Arrows. 1 Chu = basically the cost of a mace so its probably 3 or 2 arrows that are fired. True Qiang Pikeman may be worth nothing but i dont think a Chu Ko Nu would fire 7 Arrows at once

as far as i can tell frem the vid Chu s fire 3 arrwos. and the pikman is worth 7 XP so i presume the chu is about worth the same(if 10 res = 1 XP)

kinda off topic but i was talking to a mate and didnt in AoE2 in the end the Chu fire like 6 bolts? it increased as you imporved them didnt it? or are we making this up?

if not i thought tht be a good way of improving them by increasing their amount of bolts they can fire with every tech.

I think a lot of people will either love or hate China. Banner armies of different types will have complementary and very different uses. Failure to plan ahead and scout means that you will sometimes make the wrong choice for your banner army types, and lose the game. Other people will probably find it much easier to play China, because the pop cap is higher and I expect the banner armies will be a well-balanced mix of cheap unit types.

I'll probably end up playing Sioux.

The Chinese villages will be great, and the migration card will allow them to spread out pretty far around the map.

Does anyone know if TAD civs will get and stealth units? I think a stealth elephant would be awesome...

Ha ha ha. Stealth Elephant. I guess it could work in case they give all other units a "deaf" subtype. I can see it now:

Hussar: AstractCavalry, HeavyCavalry, MeleeCavalry, Deaf.

China look very fun, mostly for the way their units train. Flamethrowers help of course.

Yay!my thread is newsified
and oh i didn't tell what i was going to play but i added it to the votes.
India , because...
1)India sounds awesome
2)Cease fire and agra fort will make it easy to defend rushes
3)villagers with cards will make it easier to switch from ottoman
you could notice that the two indian choices have 1 extra each , that's my vote
posted 08-23-07 07:56 AM EDT (US)     48 / 48       
Honestly, I really like all three. Suppose I'd most like to play as India - and not for the elephants, but because I think they will be an all around fun and unique civ.

Of course, I'll be playing whoever's in the demo first.
