Pocket Arabia Indians Civ

Postby  _HyunA » Tue Sep 15, 2015 10:40 pm

How do you play Indians as pocket since no Knights?

Do I, make camels in anticipation of being knight rushed from the other pocket? Or raid with camels (lol jk they die to tc/tower/castle fire)

Play like Aztecs and wall up and boom and FI into HC/BC/Trash/Camels

Castle drop into UU (expensive af though).

Go Hun style and do CA then swap to UU up to imp.

And last option, Sling flanks?

Flush with archers, then xbow in castle backed with rams. Transition to imp, then HC and imp camels and bombard cannons. I've never tried this, but Indian camels also get bonus attack on buildings so if you can camel rush with fast castle I imagine you can get still get some good raiding done.

He is talking about being pocket in a 4v4/3v3 Arabia, so as long as its not a fwd a flush will lead to a loss very quickly.

That requires food which delays castle time which your flanks badly need help with, unless I make light cav to raid in castle. Doesn't seem viable since spearman shut down light cav easily unlike knights.

Just had pocket Indians again and going camels and monks seem to be "okay"

Fwd Siege Workshop with Camel Support works too. Even with the camel civic bonus they still have -1 PA than a FU Knight so Xbow kill them easily.

CA doesn't work until Indians set their eco right either even with the cheaper gold cost in AoF. If they were 60 gold it would.

Light Cavalry doesn't really work either even with bloodlines but they deal with xbow better and since Indian villies are cheap and get a good boom the food saved offsets the higher food cost of LCav compared to that of a knight. Indians only need 5 farmers in castle per town centre to keep vill production going. So you could click castle queue scouts and get LCav when you hit castle and harass other pocket.

Still awkward without knights though.

So far, scout rushing indian pockets turned out to be the most effective.

It works but it's not always the best strat to use.
