I was talking to a pro yesterday and he suggested I try out a Chinese fast industrial. I did it on Texas vs a Dutch guy. My BO was
Standard Chinese age up [17 vils] and FF. During age up I put 9 villagers on wood to get a trade post. After aging I researched the market upgrades etc.
After I started the wonder with approx 5 villagers I shipped the 700 wood and researched all the market upgrades. Had about 8 villagers on gold and 15 on food. 7 on wood. This is around 8-9 mins. During this time I got up my second trade post and consulate. Allied with Russia for the factory/fort. I had a two shipments available as soon as I aged so sent the 1000 gold first, then wood. researched Disciplined Pike/Chu Ko Nu. Aged at 12 mins or so. it was just a matter of sending 21 Pike and CKN, then Old Han reforms. All this time the Summer Palace had been producing units so I upgraded them all the Honored status. It was just a matter of sending that absurd army into his base. he had lingered in colonial trying to get up all his banks, so his entire army at 13-14 mins consisted of 30 hussars, not veteran. It was basically gg.
Any tips would be greatly appreciated, as well as constructive criticism.
You're a noob and you suck at supremacy.
