    Sergeant ROFLcopter:

    This is Amazonia. Either he doesn't have a foundry on your side or you did something wrong. If its in his base, then the transportation time from foundry to ship to land to fight is so long that it is a substantial drain on his max fighting pop. This renders your mortar argument null.

    Blow his galleons out of the water and he's not repopulating his army as fast as you. This can let you keep a few mortars in the back to continue to blow his galleons out of the water. You start with the upper hand right off the bat because of the transport time it takes to land on your side and the fact that they can't just land 150 men on your side. Its about keeping your advantage and mortars are a more than cost effective way to do it. You wouldn't need any more culverins than usual. Probably less, you're looking at decreased amounts of artillery from his side if he realizes what a drain it is to his population to spend so much time shipping them. 

    but wat if your on HIS side of the map? it takes like 10 seconds for him to send is artillary to the fight

     

    And it takes 3 seconds to make 50 Hussars.

    You are going to struggle to bring artillery to his side in a constant stream until you've made a bridgehead. Use cavalry in the meantime like Lancener suggested.

    Go dutch build church use merchantizm then send flyutes, riding school, cav upgrade building faster and something else then spam 200 ryturs on his shore before he can react.

     

    Or go russian and do same with musket/grenaders. Send the ships that train soliders then fencing school team fencing school then upgrades and pwn him before he can build docks

    Immedetly wall up the bank of the river and built docks and outposts. Build as many ships as possible to gain controll of the river. Once you have destroyed the brit docks & ships, make sure you cover the enermy bank in your navys los to stop villagers building more docks. Get some of your own villagers across the river and build a milatary base on their land, with severall of each building. Defend this base well with any remaining ships, forts or towers. Use the base to spawn troops on their land and attack key buildings and resorce hotspots. If your still having trouble, build a second base on the other end of their land, effectively squashing them with attacks from both sides.

    Dont forget your economy. It may be team deathmatch, but these reseorces will eventually run dry (depending on difficulty lev)

    hope this helps XD btw im british

    Brits have the best navy of any European civ. However, unlike the Russians or Portuguese, they have no cards which make their navy cheaper.

    One of the best counters for Brits are Chinese fire junks. Incredibly underrated, it only takes one of these (with all 3 Chinese naval cards) to destroy a dock without improved buildings. As they are very cheap and quick to train, you can keep slamming these at the shore almost indefinitely, keeping him off the water. If he has artillery or forts on the coastline, fire junks can also destroy the expensive units and buildings quickly at very little cost. Getting a Russian ally (for TEAM Cold Water Port) makes the cost of these negligible if you have a steady resource income backed up by consulate trickles and a factory.

    Aztec Tlaloc canoes are good for water control as well, they have enough range (with Offshore Support) to avoid culverins. They are also easily massed, but the Aztecs' lack of monitors and relatively short-ranged navy makes them more suited for a defensive approach.
