Every time you are convinced that one side has it in the bag guess what? Your wrong!!! Even right before the end the asians make what seems to be a comeback.
Strategy was pretty standard stuff Port FI, Ottoman Silk road,Japanese Ashuriga musket spam,And Indian going with the flow.
Watching it 4 times from the view of every player really gives you a perspective.
I loved watching India crush the otto TC and massacre a ton of Port and otto vills from it.
Then I was mesmerized by a single elephant tearing apart the rest of the town.
Later India took out a Port TC and must have killed a dozen vills which was fun to watch.
Japan seemed deadbent on spamming muskets and one time he was sending a large group to aid his southern flank and a small group of Jan ran into them and both groups calmly ignored each other which struck me as funny.
One thing that struck me was how everybody ignored the natives.(Not counting the shipments.) and Japan ignored a perfectly good Trade route spot which if I may add was upgraded.
And why did India ignore the consulate!?That was like being a native and ignoring the fire pit.3000 export!!Come on!
But in the end it was the losing teams low vill count that lost the day.
What? You don't think I'm going to tell you who lost. Shame on you.
