This guide has been updated with the Special Ability: Manifest Destiny: All land units have 1 sight and a 50% discount when purchasing tiles in cities. Starts with Siege I and Evasion – which reduces damage from air interception by 50%.
This normally takes a few upgrades, so this is a great unit for the early stages of the late game. This is a decent unit, but it’s obsolete quite quickly.
Combined with the ability to outright steal technologies, your main focus should be on your military forces and expanding through conquest. Special Ability: Sacrificial Captives: Gives culture for each enemy unit killed.
Special Ability: Diplomatic Marriage: Pay 500 gold to Puppet or Annex an allied City-State. Unique Unit: Jaguar: Since the Jaguar replaces the Warrior, you receive this benefit immediately.
Special Ability: Treasures of Nineveh: When a city is conquered, steal a Technology from its owner. Assyria is made for conquest and has some of the best tools in-game to make said conquest happen fairly early in the game. 10% for only buildings), 25% great people generation. Comments: Diplomatic Marriage makes Austria and incredibly unique and dangerous opponent.
The former owner must already have discovered the technology, this must occur through military conquest and can only happen once per city. Is a melee siege unit rather than ranged, but does not require set-up. Once filled, this gives 10XP to any units trained in the city. Rush to Siege Tower technology and if you can get your Siege Towers in range of enemy cities, you’re pretty much unstoppable. This ability allows Austria to absorb a City-State completely, taking over all buildings, units, unique resources – everything.
Unique Unit: Minuteman: Ignore terrain movement costs. Comments: America’s 1 sight for land units should not be underestimated when it comes to exploration or preventing Barbarians from spawning near your territory.
Position units strategically to get the most out of this.
America can work for any play style, but never really shines compared to other choices.
Attacking over 2 hexes is extremely valuable on such a fast unit at the medieval stage of the game – this is a great unit.
Unique Building: Bazaar: The Bazaar replaces the Market and provides an additional copy of each luxury resource being worked on by the city. This is fantastic for trading, especially if said resource is scarce.
The 5 discount is applied at the time of purchasing your Galaxy S9, S9 or Note 8 and any remaining trade in value is provided separately after your device is assessed.
