3rd game of the day. 2vs2 Fortress. I research Flemish revolution because I was being overwhelmed by Ethiopian Archers and siege. All my villagers converted to Flemish Militia. Great! I had a single TC left which was being attacked and it was eventually destroyed after 28 seconds, just barely enough I could create a villager who could build more TCs.
1st game of the next ay (the very next game). I had all sorts of units queued and was being attacked by Teuton Paladins. I researched Flemish revolution. Bingo! I had 49 food left and had no villagers. My ally donated me food to atleast get some villagers rolling.
