I begin the game with my Inexhaustible Ottoman Rush (which is decent on this map, what with only two TPs to be taken and water available to your opponent). But a good player like him is able to fight off attack after attack.
A water boom is powering his defenses even as his villagers are forced to garrison. At several points in the game, I actually had to retreat and fight by my forward base against ships and troops.
Eventually both of us are in Fortress and it's a battle for map control. Till the very end.
IMO this should be a good watch, so hope you enjoy.
But it was a good example of OP silk road. (I hope ES fixes it).

Dude, you know how to make troops, but you don't know how to use it. When u get a decent opponent u hardly do ever win. It was sad to see no stable and hussards searching for the cuirer's, since the french had to move out from his base. And what about having 28 janizaries on the enemy's base and leave his Town Center intact? Yes! you can see this on this recorded game.
Sad, really really sad. But the french made a well work, if it wasn't his strong faith on musketeer's against janizaries.

Good to see how to make a silk road rush; Bad to see how to fight with otomans.

I downloaded the file but how do you replay it?

Roughneck, All you have to do is simply put the file into your My Documents/My Games/Age of Empires III/SaveGame folder. Then if you open the game, go to Help and Tools and then click on Recorded Games, it should appear in that folder!
