    I'm gonna rewrite that "Stadhouder Surprise" strat, since I wrote it when I was a noob, but it does have quite a lot of potential, and it worked verse captains. Imagine that.

    Maybe, if you're lucky, I might write a guide to the ports, in the summer holidays. It isn't guaranteed though.


    armyballer - Another 3v3, this time my team is winning, (about an hour into it). One of the other team players admits defeat and resigns, then out of no where I get OOS message. I'm pissed, I again log onto agecommunity and see I have been given a LOSE. How did this happen?

    Old Indian: Once upon a time, a woman was picking up firewood. She came upon a poisonous snake frozen in the snow. She took the snake home and nursed it back to health. One day the snake bit her on the cheek. As she lay dying, she asked the snake, "Why have you done this to me?" And the snake answered, "Look, bitch, you knew I was a snake."

    There are some Spanish beginners around so I thought you might want to put one of the most basic begginer strat up (Spanish one)

    Would it be possible to make a 2v2 strat section there? Although there may not be that many out there i think those who play team games more than single player should still have a place to find new strats.

    Like The Francisco Franco Surprise

    Me and my teamate would be glad to post more of our strats up for team games.

    » Russian Sevastapol Boom - (strategy direct link) - L_Clan_Socrates 1.03
    » The Strelet Throttle - agape3 1.03

    Sure, that's great. As long as these strategies get a few replies, showing that players are interested in them, I'll add them to the thread.

    Francisco Franco Surprise is for France and Spain not Dutch. Dutch is a horrible teammate to have to do it :P Brit fairs well but France is by far the best.

    I would like to comment, so far all i see for rushing with the iros is build tomas build more tomas and build even more tomas. What i really do is i age with the messenger around 3:30 or something depends on map usually with around 15 or 16 villagers, I use starting wood to build a long house and the same for the starting travois. When i get to colonial i keep all 15 or 16 on food. I urge you all to tyry spamming Aennas, They are really cheap. all the villagers i make i stick on wood. Aennas own because they are extremely cheap 15-16 villies gathering wood allows you to spam them almost as fast as russia spams strelets and in my opinion that is saying something. I use the 5 villies and 4 villies cards in a ge 2. Also i use the 4 kenya horsemen to raid not tomahawks. after i get about 9 i start putting more on food. then i start putting all newly made vills on wood usually resulting in a medium fortress at around 13 minutesand while aging i am still able to spam out aennas by the 5's i usually age with the 4 mantlets.

    I have a possible adaptation for the Sioux pistolero rush, i attempted to post on the coresponding strat page but failed for some reason.
    This variation depends on map type for various reasons mainly starting crates.

    ::Cards::
    1~ 300 Gold
    2~ Pistolero
    3~ 700 Wood or 7 War Club

    ~Discovery~
    Put 4 of your 5 villies on food, the other to gather crates. Que villies to food until you have 8-9 on food,create 2-3 villies to gather 200 gold and send first shipment (300 gold). Build fire-pit and create 2 villies to dance, and move villies gathering gold to wood. Advance in age with Chief politician.

    ~Transition~
    send 1 villie from food to create a forward war-hut, once built make that villie gather wood.

    ~Colonial~
    Send Pistolero card and begin raid on enemy tc (accompany pistoleros with WC. Set fire-pit to warrior damage dance(if thats its name) and set forward barracks to hc gather point. Begin creating war clubs, depending on your wood situation send either 700 wood card or send 7 war clubs. I have used this rush effectively a multitude of times.

    ~I'm open to any suggestions on refining this adaptation of the strategy and would like to hear how other players fair using it.

    Now that the thread is already bumped...

    Cookie, you're a mod, could you edit this page since angel walker left? It's very tedious to use the less than superb search function, and there are some very good strats out there that aren't in this section, I don't even think there is a true 3 bank FF in the Dutch section... =o
