Yo. I've just got this game and wanted to know what tactics people usually use, but also if you prefer to play defensive or offensive? Peace.:)

i like to play both because you can {when british} build rockets from a factory behind a wall or 2 and have everything else go and atack so even if I lose all atacking troops i still have defense

I usually play defensive at the start of a campain, Building defences around the settlement to stop attakers. I then Build up my technology and Industry, and prepare for a massive assualt on the enemies later on in the game.

I'm usually pretty defensive in the beginning, building up my resources and defenses and troops, so later in-game I can pretty much go on the offensive for the rest of the game, because I have huge amounts of resources and soldiers.

Depends on the map. I do really well on inqous(OR however you spell them. I can't remember) Manlets and tomahawks. I can combine them with bowmen and muskateeers for an almost unbeatable early game army.

I tend to play much more defensively, even late in the game, I keep two or three small, diverse armies working in a team to attack.

I also make sure I have a minimum of 30 villagers (10 food, 10 wood, 9 gold, 1 builder) before I go into the second age.

I also use many vilagers (about a maximum of 50) It helps to boost your development but can leave your defences weakened. I usually start with about 20 until sufficiant defences are in place, then start to increase to fuel my epansion.

Yeah. Do you find it better to have one big city? Or several medium ones... or many scattered town centers?

Normally, I play as the Portugese or the British, so I build a few town centers near important sites, like resources or trade routes, but I find it can be risky as it leaves me too drawn out over the map, and I can get picked off one base at a time...
