The start goes a bit awkward for me. Map is Saguenay and we start with a market. (i research hunting dogs asap) I semi-accidentally took a nooby-deck wich had virginia company but no 3 settlers card on it. This is why i was so far behind from the dutch early in the game.
I try to keep pressure, keep him off the hunts and cutting wood (as normal) and succeed pretty well. Only problem was that he had around 20 skirmishers. Then he gets to fortress and the trouble begins.
Both get distracted a bit every now and then, my eco is wide open and hunters aren't safe. He gets alot of my hunters, while i've sniped his settlers since the early colonial.
Can the dutch skirm + ruyter + hussar beat british longbow + dragoon? Find It Out ;)
