I got Mayans and my 3 opponents had Saracens, Turks and Koreans. I built 12 castles and they couldn't breach my defence until 3 hrs. My allies were not very co-operative. Inspite of having Mayans I defended my empire for 3 hrs with only Halberdiers and Arbalests against Mamelukes, Janissaries and War Wagons. Pls rate me if u like my replay.
