i was playing team game as dutch, and revolted as south africa, later my enemy did too, but his ruyters were fully upgraded, while mine were stuck in Age IV tech, i wonder if the TEAM early dragoons (portuguese card) could give you access to imperial ruyters.
Now that revolt deck copies are fixed this sound impossible at Frist. Have you found out how he did it?
I believe they used the team early dragoons because his teamate was Portuguesse, cant check it myself.
There is also team early skimirsher. Would that work too?
i dont know, i suppose it might work.
Early Dragoons does not allow you to upgrade them to Imperial, if you revolted.
All Early Dragoons does, is allow you to recruit them in Age 2.
