2 recs of a German Outlaw strategy that consists in making Thuggees (45 attack skirms) and Dacoits (30 attack musketeers)
For now, it seems to work best at Deccan because of the OP outlaws and the starting crates that can give you an early TP. I will check if it works in any other map, though.
SUMMARY OF BOTH RECS:
My First Rec is vs a level 27 capt (Iros). I did play well at start (or at least I think so), but, I made a terrible mistake not rushing him when I had the opportunity. So he FFed, got forest prowlers, and microed my thuggees to deah while I was booming as hell. Just when I aged to fortress, he already had some halbs ready to attack me.
I did have a lot of coin, but he destroyed my TC and saloon, and I couldn't get the enough units in the necessary time. And I made another terrible mistake not sending the 8 hackapells to massacre his prowlers. Finally, I lost the game, but I had nice opportunities during the whole game (most wasted). I know it doesn't give a good example, but its a good rec explaining my strategy and showing its OPness.
My Second rec is vs a Japanese guy who made yumis and ashigarus with some Naginatas. He didn't boom or explore enough (I think he expected a rush or something). I attacked him as soon as I had full pop. My thuggees massacred his army. Later I was destroying his shrines at middle map while booming and getting powerfull mercs. Finally, I aged to industrial and attacked him with my powerfull mercenary army, he couldn't do anything against my OPness and resigned.
Yeah, I know, this strategy isn't perfect, and yes, I made terrible mistakes at both games. But still, basically, it does work. Please, feel free to criticize my strategy and make suggestions.
