As in, castle drops? Be proactive and take initiative, dont let them land castles infront of your base, have army in the battlefield to contest the castles and kill villagers, do not be afraid to pull vills to build a fast tower to deny the castle.
Alternatively, get a castle of your own.

It's more like they just turtle up and become impossible to penetrate. I don't know how to advance through the ages quickly enough and I'm unsure of what strikes a fair balance between building an army and ramping up my farm.

>It's more like they just turtle up and become impossible to penetrate.
You have 2 options, go ham in rams, petards (if possible) with fuckloads of cavalry and infantry. Or play his game and try to keep up with the boom.
>I don't know how to advance through the ages quickly enough and I'm unsure of what strikes a fair balance between building an army and ramping up my farm.
If this is the case then I'm afraid it was an unbalanced match, if you cannot win whatsoever then you're simply not good enough, not being despective, you may have faced a guy with a couple hundred of hours and a lot more skills and knowledge.
If this is the case, practice, practice and more practice, it's the good ol' remedy, train against the AIs or low ELO players by making lobbies.

How are Burgundians fair? Can we expect to see them nerfed? I'm not bitching about them, I play them and Huns and just feel like I'm being carried when I play Burgundians and I want to get ready to get knocked down a peg if that's what is coming the Burgundians way lmao.

>Fast castle into Coustillier, Castle drop if unpressured, castle defense if pressured, if feudal or dark pressured just make the counter to hold em off and move the vils instead of taking them off stuff
>Basic micro makes Coustillier's fucking unstoppable against even their supposed counters like Camels and Pikes, as long as you hit and run and dip out (preferably into castle safety) until the recharge it doesn't even matter if you micro individual units to get charges off
>Keep booming, 2-3 TC boom depending on coustilliers while they keep the enemy busy
>Imp
>Upgrade coustillier and push the advantage
>By this point if the enemy has let me get here unburdened I 95% have them by the balls and simply lack the man power to push the victory, I'm still in a good position even with pressure, though
>Flemish revolution
>I now have an army of 120 or so that literally nothing is going to stop short of mass onager behind fortified walls, and I'm probably already in the enemy base at this point
>Even if I use flemish revolution to push back an offense, on a tiny map there's no way he can prep shit before my masses march into his base
>Trebs in Imp if I really need siege

I literally feel like I cannot lose like this, at least not at this Elo (800, fucked about in multi for too long before I actually learned build orders lol)
Am I correct in assuming Burgundians are fucking broken? Are they just broken in this skill bracket? Are they gonna launch me out of the hundreds and into the skill range where players can deal with it or am I getting smacked with the nerf bat? I literally can't imagine how you counter the enemy suddenly having 120-140 army when you have like 20-60
>>
>>278517
what game is this
>>
>>278517
I'd say you're just facing enemies that dont have the courage, and/or dont know how to pressure early.
At higher ELOs, your strategy can easily be undone by extremely aggressive strats.
>>
>>278729
So this is just gonna take me straight to the ELO where people can deal with it?

Should I ride the Flemish train to mid level elo town or should I focus on diversifying my strategy repertoire at this elo?
>>
>>278739
You're focusing on the wrong things.
>should I focus on diversifying my strategy repertoire at this elo?
Yes, but let me clarify, your whole post is based if all things goes according to your plans, you forget the fact almost all civs have 'the ideal plan', but the problem is that when the enemy throws a wrench into your plans and you're forced to answer and adapt. Anybody can follow a strategy and/or build order, but applying it in real competitive games is an entire different matter, and -nobody- will let you take control of the game unpunished, or if they do and you get away with it, they were bad players to begin with.

You can follow any strategy or plan you want, that you actually are successfull with it, it's another matter.
>>
>>278746
I guess I just don't get how this doesn't go according to plan, then. Cause outside of a clincher rush that ends the game in dark or feudal I really don't see how I can't get the ball rolling on this

Im sure I will, I'm just genuinely not good enough at the game yet to understand how to counter my own strategy lmfao

west taking the center, then east coming back, losing it but keeping their base just barely, returning for the center, and then the flanks catching them out, Norf, then Souf--then the counterflank--then the deadlock, but then pushing back the flanks

The map "Arena."
Six armies clashed on this one map, each refusing to back down. Each convinced it was in the right.
From beneath the rice of Korea came the Siege Onagers; ancient machines bent on eradicating all life.
But another evil had its eyes on the cube. From the depths of Japan the forces of the Shogun arrived to enforce their claim.

To oppose these fearsome powers-- --the cube's rulers in the Malay Empire sent their cheap soldiers and sophisticated low income housing into the fray

And last came the other 3 players. Finest and most uncompromising of /vm/ commanders. Seeing a map beset by neighbors and walls, they disregarded the hill to murder each other.
The koth match had begun. It could only end with the total victory of one of these factions and the moral victory of all others.

I've been wondering, would it be a good idea to try to turn this into more of a general RTS LFG thread? There's a couple others I'd like to try to throw into the mix to see if we could get games for and doubt they would hold up super well on their own. But if that's too much of a clash of things I'm okay with not shoving them in here.
In particular I'd like to try out some Broodwar and DoW2 Elite Mod but I could be dragged into CoH2 every now and then.
TWWH2 matches never.

I'm on the fence about this one, because I came here for aoe2 games. However I'm willing to give it a try to see how it goes
