Just wanted to get some opinions on what civs are best in 40 min treaty., 1v1 games.

My brother and I are having a "draft" of the civs. So far I have the Brtis and Otts. He has the French and Germans.

Of the remaining 4 civs. (ports, dutch, spain & russians) which two should I try to get?

Which of the four would be best to go against his french?

thanks

In my opinion after using Dutch a lot, I found that unless you had simply tons of ruyters, they take too long to kill cuirs. When they make more than just cuirs [always if you're above sergeant] then it's rather difficult to micro a normal battle, as well as keeping cuirs away from your ruyters. I would say that cuirs>ruyters in melee.

Maybe Spain isn't that good, but good unctioners can bring it in treaty.

Not sure what you mean by good anti cav.

Ports have the best LC in the game imo
British have imperial dragoons
French have imperial dragoons
Dutch have ruyts and speedy halbs
Spanish have imperial unctioned dragoons
Germans have war wagons and dops
Russians have cav archers
Ottos have jannisaries and cav archers

Gendarmes aren't too hard to deal with as long as you aren't some idiot who only makes musketeers or hussars.

And once you're no longer a sergeant, few people will do that.

I had the 5th pick in my draft was going to take the Port.

I messed up by taking the Otto and Ben (my brother) really likes the Port. So he said I could take the Russians in place of the Otto plus the next two picks if I give him the Ports. So I did.

My picks:
1. brits
2.russians
3. ?
4.

Bens picks:
1. French
2. germans
3. Ports

So any opinions?

What would you all take for your next two.

I don't mean to go on and on with this so I will not bug you guys any more with this draft thing.

I am new to this board. Lots of fun!!

Thanks for the help.

pick up spain, or japan if you have TAD. I'd take japan before spain if its a possibility. Spain harder to play and not as versatile.
