    The Middleman:
    So i decided to try dutch out. My question is which are available starts whit dutch in 1v1 and 3v3 games? and can someone write BO for those starts?

    Dutch are the mostdifficult civ to play.  Like brit they are boomy, and require good building placement and experience to do get out of age2 unscathed.

    Try playing Port --  I am almost PR 43 again with french on nilla and the toughest matchup is always port.

     Wish me luck -- in a couple more days I should be over PR43 again ... personal goal :)

    Ports are so OP

    thx guys for your help and suggestions. I always fail vs german early pressure whit cav and pike+xbow, and what i lack is building placement, is there some rule about placing a building or its experience that i lack? are there any guidelines about placing a building? and when is a good time to get market up and which upgrades i should take?

     

    I like to get a Market going at around the 2:30-3:30 mark, and the card that makes Colonial upgrades much much cheaper is not a bad one.

     

     Building placement... just keep a closed area so you can move your villages inside if they get raided. Walls are good. If you're playing defensively build a barracks a little ways back from the front of your village, where an incoming army won't immediately see it.

     

    You can use houses and other buildings as walls too. Also, take the time to really wall off an area instead of leaving it open along the trades routes. It's a little finicky but important to close everything off. If you put a building right by a trade route so you can't enclose it with a wall, just use the building as part of the wall.

    One thing I found in a game yesterday is that if the British rush you with lots of longbowmen, counter with Hussars. They cut through them like butter. Just watch out for pikemen. Build grenadiers too for that. And a few skirms too just to take pot shots at whoever, preferably from behind a wall.

    I get my market after 700 wood.

    In terms of building placement. Get the building rotator and put banks in front forming a wall like thing. (maybe check my youtube channel for building placement, I think I'm pretty ok at it: http://www.youtube.com/user/N3OJerom?feature=guide )
