I rush, he beats it back just about perfectly, I go fortress, he gets a couple of outposts up (worried about continuing rush, he says after game). He gets Black Riders and Jaegers from a second gold mine, I have Manchu and 2 falcs and jan+abus. Close fight ^^
He was a bit gold screwed. Also unlucky not find the gold mine on his side.
Excuse the inordinate amount of time I take to finish him off due to poor, poor economic balancing near the end.
Wow . . do you always review stuff like that? Eccentric or well paid, I'm guessing . . or maybe both.
Anyway, I just want to say, I believe this game shouldn't have got more than a 2; this was posted to demonstrate that Ottos do have a fortress combo that can beat jans, jaegers, skirms, uhlans, etc. I've played dozens of games that I consider more entertaining than this one.
Thanks for your review however (I didn't even expect a 2 word comment), very entertaining and some truly valid points.
