I played on the smallest map on the easiest setting and got my ass whooped. Dunno what happened but as soon as I built muskateers and grenadiers I went to war. Since I was so far ahead in technology, I figured I'd kick some serious booty.
One thing I don't like about the game are unrealistic instances where my muskateers were slaughtered by archers. But those are few and far in between.
