Good game with some fights going trought Colonial to Industrial pretty fast. A good way to beat Dutchs as Briths, Usually I outboom them. Any way Dutch is pretty good and Lestan wasent easy at all, a good player this was our second match.
Well I'm no expert on either civ, but seems like you went for a straight boom with Brits, Dutch player wasn't interested in preventing it.
Lestan made some poor decisions I felt particularly in unit choice- sending ruyters vs longbows, and nassau halberds are nice but vs fully upgraded longbows and muskets? the fort was also unnecessary, had ample time to take the trade route if he wanted, had 80xp/food treasures to claim but didn't, and was sitting on vast stockpiles of food and gold, almost 4k food built up waiting for gold (as Dutch!) to go Age4. And Stradiots woulda been better used in his big offensive as opposed to guarding some trees.
all in all you got to boom freely, i thought the dock especially without schooners was a bit unnecessary, but otherwise did a good job of taking out a Dutchy with Brits.
