I feel like Tupi is a good beginner civ, since you only need to worry about 2 types of resources, which makes it much easier to manage the economy. Newer players don't tend to use market all that much anyway, so they don't have to worry about some of the negative side of having no gold.

Funny that, cause my first experience with AoE3 (as Dutch) was essentially "FUCKING WOOD, WHY IS THERE SO LITTLE OF YOU, AAARRRGHHHH!" and shift-cliking that market and selling food)
I personally think that Paraguay is the best civ for beginners - everything is automated! Literally.

Hmm, personally I think that Paraguayans are deceptively easy. They can defend, but they require a lot of handling to handle always reaching population limit. The only thing that makes Strelets viable for Russians is their range. Primeros don't even have that.

That's why there's a delete button. But to be honest - I use the IRL paraguayan strategy of rushing with Cavalry first (or at artillery), while Primeros are in support. With my strategy, I usually have them both buffed with two cards by Age 2, so they are pretty good against rushes and most of the artillery spams...long-ranged cannons are still a bitch though. And in Age 4 the enemy usually can't kill them fast enough - cause two stables/barracks are birthing them, and that's not mentioning the Cohetes or a shitload of opryskis or any other immigrant)

So you rely on massed units. Which immigrants do you suggest?

I rely on a Age 4 Blitz, preferably, right after I countered their attack on my base - In my experience there are few civs that can quickly replenish their numbers after that and militia/warriors are usually worthless against tier 3 Primeros/Aca/Cohete charge with 2-3 buffs via cards and/or natives.
Well, until level 40, polish (If I remember correctly) skirmishers are good cause ranged. After that, I usually use Opryskis, cause they are good at destroying buildings, especially main ones. I usually just skip the barracks and destroy towers, main halls and every villager I can find)

Noooooooo, I loved the 60k HP voivods :'(
And maybe it is not so bad. Just make the Age 3 shipment into 1+1 instead of 2+1. It only gets absurd when you have 40+ voivods, this way if you let Bulgaria send 40 shipments, then you really deserve to lose

Voivods will no longer affect other Voivods.
