I saw a post earlier about Longbow/Pikemen combo. The problem was they don't have enough HP compare to musketeer/hussars. But how about I switched to native pikemen?
Sure, they are expensive and you can't have as many of them as a normal one. But they have more HP so that fixes one of the issue. And Cheap Native card too.
And when I said natives, I mean native HI that uses for counter cavalray and good siege attack. That means Maya, Nootka, Inca and Sohei that I can think of. Yes I agree the British are map dependent.
So would the tactic works a bit better if I switch to tougher and more upgradable native pikemen, and hopefully can still finish the match by Age III, just like the original one. Even throw in some grenadiers to speed things up?
