U did real well beating the best civ in the game with the worst civ in the game
I liked ur usage of siege elephants, u really used them well, and I also likes how at the begginning u ran ur monks around, got every cow(or nearly every cow) and protected them from capture with ur monk, until they got into your town

I read ur guide, and thought it was pretty cool... however this rec doesn't really demonstrate anything to me except how to defeat a noob using India. I mean why did the dutchie stain colonial so darn long??? Are there any other recs showing india successfully counter a dutch FF?

This rec shows how my semi-ff with India (as mentioned in my little guide to india) works in action (THIS should be demonstrated :P). If you have read it more carefully you would know that there isnt something mentioned like:"it counters a dutch ff". Beside this, you would know that the opponent is maybe thinking of a rush because of my early ageup and my 4sowars (and later the 5 sepoys) i send immediately in order to distract his eco. The dutch here has build some skirms to be prepared and used them to catch a bit up with my settler killing. Also very important to say is that i think that this dutch is far away from being a noob. His elo overall sp points in TWC is around 2100 and his way of playing is very good. I also think that a dutch preferes a semi-ff instead of a ff you are looking for...
hope this helps

kk... i guess its just that i haven't had much luck with it, since usually the case is, if the dutch hasn't reached fort already by the time i have, he follows me there around 45 secs after. Then when i reach his base, im soon greeted by a herd of ryuters + falcs... hmmm perhaps ur strat is becoming popular :D

This was an extremely good game especially when you killed almost five of his villagers while raiding but the five sepoys you got were pretty useless. You could have aggroed them by using only one. Amazing how the worst civ can beat the best!!

Thank you very much Johnny rottened!
A bit of luck is also very important to do so!
I know the sepoys were not very useful, but i think they help me at least making him believe im going to rush ^^...well at least.
