    or heavy inf > cav , skirm > inf , and cav > light inf. This would be as a civ like spain with lancers skirms and rods. as ports u would do like cass > goons/inf , goons > cav , and organs > skirms possibly with a musk meatshield depending on what civ youre facing. against someone like spain or french you would want a musk meatshield for ur cass and goons

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

    Not everyone plays on Andes where you have instant spam units. The better players I've seen start queuing up units in anticipation of what their opponent is most likely going to make rather than just reacting to what they have. It's amazing to watch a really good player have a counter ready by the time his opponent's units get to the fight. These are the people who often end up with 2:1 or higher kill ratios, even in mirrors.

    That's because these players would be vsing noobs.

    You cannot just make units expecting what your opponents army is. In all my games, I make sure I know exactly what my opponent goes before 40 before I begin making my own army.

    I find it hilarious that people are bashing the higher APM you need for andes.

     

    you DO need to make artillery in advance ofcourse, and you have to guess what they are making.  though honestly guesing what the neemy makes isnt that hard.  people get in routines, and its frankly quite obvious what the opponent is making.  especially in 30-60 min games where you stand in practically the one spot and play exactly the same i.e. andes cliffs / orinocco mid.
