I see it is BeatikJoe and I decide to go early hussars in the hope that they will do decently vs his dreaded scouts and macehutlains and I can also use them for raiding.
When I am raiding with my hussars I see him sticking up a native embassy and gathering a lot of wood. I prepare for the inevitable scout spam and am surprised when I walk into his base to see some exposed villagers. Next thing I know, the scouts come out of stealth and do some real damage to my army.
I try to counter him with muskets and hussars to no avail so I push for fortress where my veteran hussars manage to push him out of my base.
But he keeps coming... I send cav combat, make some cuiraseers while he mixes some mayans into his army. The forces come to battle once more to decide who will be victorious.
