My Ottoman Semi-FI against a Dutch 3-Bank Semi-FF. He sends soldiers and creates a forward base, quickly establishing map control and giving me access to only two hunts and a small patch of berries. However, neither of us make attacks on each other until I hit Industrial, where I launch a few raids and then make an attack. My forces are overwhelmed by the the sheer number of Halberdiers, but I kill a few villagers and keep a Fort from going up. I finish off his FB in my second attack and he resigns.
I make a few mistakes, mainly sending my Spahi against his Swiss Pikes. I win, but I lose six Spahi in the process, removing half of my raiding force. Additionally, I do not do any Fortress raids, one of the most important parts of this strategy.
