I watched the recs (Ourk vs Flooky on AS) aswell, but I'm unsure if it is really worth it.

Wouldn't a straight FF work just as good, if not better?

Sure, you wouldnt be able to kill a few vills (you cannot kill many vs a good player anyway), but on the other hand your Age3 shipments would come faster, and you would be able to build cuirs quiker.

So I'm curious if a plain FF as France isn't better than a musk harrasment FF.

But actually I find France>>Spain (I play France) so both might work.

I chose my harassment strategies based on the map, and the civ of the enemy player.

Map Dependent Example:
If the map is Great Plains or Painted Desert there are no berries nearby and players are forced to hunt herds away from their base. This will give a harassing/raiding strategy a much higher chance of success.

Civ Dependent Examples:
If you are playing iriqious you normally cant raid/harass because they often have multiple war huts to garrison hunting vils.

If your playing french raiding with heavy infantry will not work because you need a melee unit if you are going to try to kill the CdB. Since they have very high ranged resistances.

Just some thoughts. Hope this helps.
