    Subject: unit combos

    hey so i have come across two semi-unusal combos. one dutch one brits.

    Dutch -Huss, Halb

    why it works. huss take care of skirms and art and halbs basically anything else

    why it fails. straight musk

     Brits - Goons, Longbow

    why it works. lbs take inf goons take cav and art. and everyone is expecting musk/huss or musk/lb

    why it doesn't. both are fairly fragile units

    any thoughts? the main advantage of these is they take ppl off gaurd and in supremacy one battle can often be HUGE

    idk about sup but in tr lb goon is actually used fairly often when brits are played defensive since lb have insane range and their goons are excellent

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

    That's why with dutch I always get the Musket card from the church asap...and then make 8 heavy cannon and then halbs and hussar works because the heavy cannon wreck all the infantry

    Wasn't this a sup thread?

     

    Anyways, the only advantage I can see you getting is the surprise factor early, because as you said both of those combos are somewhat easily countered. If you can end the game quick after getting units out, they might work, but it wouldn't be that hard for the enemy to change his units and destroy your army

    Yes, this is a sup thread. I boom extremely fast though, so I do a little skirmishing and continue my boom till I get church card and muskets and then get factories and make cannon

    does lb hussar cannon work well? ive tried it sometimes and it catches people off guard because they expect lb goon and thus make full skirms

    lb hussar cannon loses to anyone with a lot of cav

    No it doesn't actually, it would lose to gend, but Brit huss beat most cav, and cost effectively too.

    if hes talking supremacy, then honestly most sup games don't get to the point where british huss are any better then anyone elses. its basically a weaker version of gendrame-skirm so its good but not great in treaty

    halb huss is bad you want neither of those units with dutch in fortress. lb goon is one of the strongest combos it can't be countered you have to outmass it.
