I really enjoyed watching this as an observer. Worth at least one view.

Nice game, it's always good to see the two top nilla civs duking it out, this match-up always seems to provide entertaining games.
Nice hassling from Duolckrad at the start, the fact that Emperor sent the 2 tower card showed it had an effect. Furthermore he was too scared to build them in the front of his base, making them pretty useless for the rest of the game. However I think it was a mistake to not try and go fortress, think about how much stronger your army would have been with veteran jans and merc cav. The only thing keeping him in the game was his superior shipments.

Easily one of the funnest games I've played.
Looking back on it, I probably shouldn't have focused so much on killing those Hussars. Every time I was about to push, I was forced back again, so by the time I was ready, I already lost a large part of my advantage and fought was fighting an age down. I probably should have aged, as Jonesk said.
Once that forward rax and forward tp went down, it was pretty much GG. Before that, the oscillations of offensive and defensive were between my forward rax and his base, which definitely had an effect. After that, I knew that the game would turn from me on the offensive overall to me struggling to hold whatever was left of my side of the map.
But yeah, it was a very good game. Worth watching.
