    If ur being German you have to use the uhlans you get to raid his villagers and u age with 3 settler wagons and 7 settlers totalling 7 population.

    dcdonnie4:

    The more costeffective army can win vs a more expensive (better unit) because they can just keep throwing them at the other player.

    age with 14 or 15 17 takes too long u should start age up at 2:30 mark get the 8 xbow shipment plus uhlan. build barracks if ur on offencive get pikes and xbow so yust gather food and wood. gather coin only for ups but if u will trancition to a uhlan based army then mine more dont gather from all resources equally gather the ones that u use to train troops never get housed and dont stop vill production....

    watch some replays from http://rts-sanctuary.com/RTS-Sanctuary/showforum=66

     

    I suggest you to watch 3-4 expert replays first (pr35+). So you see how it should finally look ;)

    After that you should watch replays from players with a slighty higher pr (you're pr18 so I would suggest you to watch some pr25-26 replays. Watch the replays carefully and try to copy some tactics. After that your pr will improve for sure. Once you reached pr25 you can start to watch pr30 replays and also try to copy the tactics. And so on :)

    I tell you this because I know that its impossible to copy tactics from players with a much higher pr (because you lack in mirco and other stuff).

    Germans:

    Pros: Very strong late game economy, easy cav massing, good at anything but fishing, very strong (vill) shipments.
    Cons: Uhlans somewhat weaker than hussars cost-effectively, bad shipment rate.
    Difficulty: Medium
    Best against: Ports, British.
    Best strategy: Xbow semi-FF.

    German match ups:

    Vs Portuguese: FF.
    Vs Spanish: Xbow semi-FF.
    Vs French: Xbow semi-FF.
    Vs Ottomans: colonial Xbow spam.
    Vs Russians: colonial Xbow spam, dual rax asap.
    Vs Dutch: Xbow semi-FF.
    Vs British: Xbow/Uhlan semi-FF.
    Vs Germans: Xbow semi-FF.
    Vs Sioux: FF.
    Vs Aztec: Xbow/pike semi-FF.
    Vs Iroquois: Xbow semi-FF.
    Vs Japanese: colonial Xbow/pike, dual rax asap.
    Vs Chinese: Xbow/pike semi-FF.
    Vs Indians: Xbow semi-FF.

    Notes:
    - The German Xbow semi-FF is strong because both vill cards are sent and uhlans are good raiders. Also the early Xbow harassing is a pain in the ass for most civs. The Xbow semi-FF is very easily turned into a rush, and you can build another rax for dual rax spam rather quickly. If you plan on going fortress you can be there in 10.00 having made about 30 xbows, and having a pretty devastating economy (say 40 vils).
    - Uhlans are a weak unit but very easily massed. The 8 and 9 uhlan shipments in age3 can really overwhelm your opponent if he doesn’t have enough anticav, and with good micro you can take out his anti cav with skirms. (skirm+uhlan = microheavy)
    - A strong thing to do is go cannons when you are fortress. Make/send some dopples/WW with them and you’ll have an awesome combo against which most civs have trouble (especially good against ports and british). Your eco can easily support going cannon at this point.

    are you using keyboard arrows to scroll? its better to use your mouse.

    using hotkeys?

    forgetting to age will lose games. you should be spamming age up
    button when you have 780 food.

    most strategies that involve the 500 food politician are weak.
    400 wood is preffered 90% of the time.

    you have spare resources for most of the game.
    always look at your resources count and ask yourself what
    should i be using that on right now.

    i would reccomend looking at n30clan's youtube channel and
    looking for games with german in them. here is one i found:
