    Subject: Aztec advantages and disadvantages

    Advantages:

    - very good defensive buildings (very upgradable war huts and nobles huts)

    - good anti-cavalry units

    - lots of food gathering boost cards

    Disadvantages:

    - poor anti-light infantry units (I mean coyote runner - take only 1 pop, but costs wood and has low hp, at, and resistance)

    - worse coin gathering cards (in plantation(but not so bad))

    - no anti-infantry/cavalry long shooters (arrow knight is only good vs buildings, cannons (very good on them) and perhaps ships )

    they get no cannons. and its easy to compensate with the food and coin it overall makes an even better eco than usual with 35 of food and then 45 on coin. Also the warrior priests to dance are a HUGE advantage over the other TWC civs

    dcdonnie4:

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

    Subject: Re: Aztec advantages and disadvantages

    advantages:

    -best food gather rate of all civs

    -infinite 1000 gold shipment (aztecs can easily gain XP while putting their explorer in defensive mode behind their army)

    -nice cav AND heavy inf countering unit

    -walls with ~27000 hp (if firepit on building dance) 

     

    disadvantages:

    -lose to every 75% skirm 25% musk army

    -no good unit against walls except melee units (puma spearmen and jaguar knights)

    -their main unit (eagle runner knight) trains a bit slow

    Advantage:

    Decent Economy.

    Fun Noob Bashing civ. (able to win games in est. 2 mins flat.)

     Disadvantage:

    Lose almost every MU thinkable except Aztecs vs Ottomans, where it would be insanely close, if not in Aztecs Favor. In a competitive environment. (no need to point out the many flawls that would cause this)

    you forget the arrow knight. and even though arrow knights dont do much against regular untis, i like to have like 20 at the back of my army to kill cannons but also their range is just so insane so they stay alive for SO long. Very cost efficient as long as you dont only make them.

    I'm pretty sure he didn't leave them out. AK's are awful against buildings, Aztecs have no means of pushing without 20+ AK, which in turn leaves you mega vulnerable.

    Obvious tip of the day: Mass towers vs Aztecs, it will completely *** them over.

    @lordstefan:

    you think aztecs win vs ottoman? i am sure abus only beat them easily.

    but brits arent very strong against aztecs because lbows suck against jaguar knights. (ofcourse brits are still winning against aztecs cause of eco, rockets and skirms from hc)

    The MU is underplayed, and I doubt you've played it much.

    Abus are useless in the MU, you can't mass them like you would with other civs' skirms.

    This makes the MU very close, and maybe in Aztecs favor. This of course doesn't mean Aztecs are better than Ottomans. I personally think Ottos are more versatile, its just they lose a few stupid MU's like vs Dutch, Aztecs, and Sioux. While remaining a much more competitive civ imo.

    If you think British don't do well against Aztecs, it makes me believe you can't see past the most simple British aspects.

    Why cant you spam abus like skirms? too expensive or what?

    abus should **** everything from aztecs, even cojotes i think

    and i also think ottos are quite good against sioux (like all european civs...)

    I didnt say, british dont do well against aztecs, but they dont win against them like ports or germans. Jaguar-knights **** muskets, cav and lbows. (lbows are bad against heavey infantery if you compare them to normal skirms.) but like i said, british win because their eco is op, and because they have artillery and skirms from hc.
