Bonuses Edit

  • Cavalry Villagers. The argentines have gauchos: mounted settlers. They do everything a settler can do, but mounted, giving them much more mobility.
  • Cavalry Explorer. Their explorer is also mounted, having extra mobility as well as the capacity to fire his rifle even when fighting from short range.
  • Agile Cavalry. Their cavalry has plenty of improvements, more than the average civ, it also becomes faster and faster with each age up.
  • Cattle. Their herdables reproduce over time and, given that you start the game with a cow, it’ll be almost an assurance that you’ll always have cattle available for use.

Weaknesses Edit

  • Over specialization. Cavalry is as much an advantage as a disadvantage, as seen by the fact that your Gauchos are really vulnerable against units specialized in combating cavalry.
  • Rustling. Your cattle can also be stolen and it will keep reproducing even under enemy control, so watch out and protect any and all herdables you may have or you might end up significantly improving your enemy’s economy.
