best civs in death match

Postby  mtman58 » Thu Aug 29, 2013 3:12 am

How would you rate the best civs in a death match game (1 vs 1) starting in the post imperial age. Rate the best civs for water maps and the best civis for land maps. Thanks

probably still huns are best, then goths are another good one, franks with new chivalry tech, chinese are good cos they start with 3 extra vils, spain, then maya has the extra vil (however they start housed)- on land.

On water, huns, spain are what i can think of.. and yea vikes since longboat trains faster than galleon but i have not much dm experience.

Hun
Goth

and the rest. Spain maybe good with the fast building bonus. Chinese with 10 pop start might be good too.

Incas get pop probably the second fastest after Huns, which is huge in DM. They don't really have anything obviously spamable though. What to make? Eagles?

Incas have good trash/counter units (kamayuk/slinger) if anything lol. None of their units can bulldoze through entire armies like a paladin or UU. I'd say Aztecs are pretty good too, cuz of their universal +15% military production but lose terribly to heavy cavalry (they have siege onagers vs archers).

This is like saying Vikings aren't the best water civ in AoC. This pretty much isn't up for debate. It's a provable fact that Huns are the best. They even destroy Goths and Mayans, which are supposedly the best civilizations to use against Huns in imperial age, and are pretty good themselves on DM.

Huns can use their starting scout to rush right away, they don't have to build houses, and thus can go straight to building stables/archery ranges for massive leads in military right away. Even Goths, with their super production bonus, still need to build houses, thus making them slower than Huns. Huns can make pure paladins against Goths, and outnumber their halberdiers enough to beat them into submission.

If this is michi or water, things might change, but normal settings for DM have pretty empty maps, so the first five minutes are super important.

First- Goths are faster than Huns and own them in a head-to-head matchup in DM. At least in high level games.

And try making pure paladin vs Goths with Huns and you'll die vs any good player in under 15 minutes.
