Timing Attack

Viva la Revolución ! Today the Portuguese are not happy about their home city treatment and rise up ! Will you choose Peru or Brasil ?? Peruvian Guards or super Jinetes ?

Of course this build order is not to be used in every situation. Your opponent will more often than not attack you before your Revolt is ready. But when you can do it, damn is it glorious !

This build order allow to Revolt under 13 minutes ! Even around 10 minutes if you are under attack and need to defend yourself !

The Brazil variant should be coming soon !

Pros
  • Strikes really hard
  • Very fun to execute
Cons
  • Vulnerable to early timing attacks
  • Ends up being all in

One rule : always train villagers ! This is especially important here as every settler will be turned into one (or two) Revolutionaries as you Revolt.

Also this build order makes great use of Livestock ! Slowly growing as the time passes, your Sheeps and Cows will turn into massive food reserves, and faster to gather on top of that. This allow this Revolt build order to be performed with only 2 hunts, including your starting one !

As we are getting closer to revolting, you will deplete every single ressources available in your base. Leave nothing behind before you start pushing your opponent !

This is the most greedy variant for the hardest to hold push. If you have to defend yourself, switch back to the Brasil variant (coming soon).

    Awesome strat! Just won a game with 14 minute peru, 17 minute surrender. The livestock is incredible though, I don’t know if I’ll ever play Portugal without it now
