I don't get it though. You get a few free impi anyways and can get a hc shipment of assegai if needed. So why would axe riders make a difference against impi and assegai even if there is 12? If souix send the cetan bow shipment it still wont help the situation since bowman are much better. If the zulu player collects enough export, itzs also possible to send the hollander which will destroy axe riders as well.
I agree that serbia is better than paraguay. I cannot stand a chance against a serbia player who can get upgraded sieman, and hadjuks before I can even get brave primeros and pikes. Does anyone think that bulgaria in its current state is the best late game civ? If we were to condition the map to be one with choke points, I believe that bulgaria could be any civ's nemesis besides columbia, portugal, and ethiopia maybe.
