Topic Subject:Japan and Russia

i have been playing both of these civs for a long time and i have found advantages for both of them in various points of the game in early game, mid game, late game, and treaty. Russian in late game and treaty seems to be be better than japan becuase of better economic strength and turtling capability with sevastopal(dont remeber how to spell this). Japan has better early, mid, and decent treaty game with cherry orchards, shrines, and stronger units and daimyo. Other stuff i consider is forward base capability and both civs have great advantage with japan at a slight advantage wiht the daimyo. Also unit production speed to me is a huge aspect as russia can spam units pretty fast with instant infantry besides strelets, and really fast producing cavalry. While japan has speed boosts from the church, consulate and daimyo. my only complaint right now is how i should use them besides how i described and any other advantages and disadvantages i should know.

just look up some strats/expert recs on those civs to get better ideas.

Russia has a pretty good rush/contain with a 3 unit combo pretty fast.

Japan has a pretty good boom and has some lame units.

With Japan - you really cant go wrong, great units - great economy. They do tend to be a bit slow aging up to colonial, which is probably their main weakness.

Russia can boom really well - also, while in fort and higher - they have some of the best villie raiders. Opris can crumble a town and kill villies with ease.
