Strategy[edit | edit source]
Mexico is a Revolution esclusive to the Spanish. Like most revolutions included in the Definitive Edition, picking it can be a finishing move, as Mexico turns Settlers into Vaqueros, which are a variant of the Comanchero, but with the ability of gathering food from herdable animals. This Makes Mexico an excellent option for open maps, as Vaqueros have more mobility than Revolutionaries or other infantry troops from other revolutions (which Settlers turns into). Vaqueros can be improved with the Charros Shipment.
Mexico also offers Chinacos, which are an improved version of Renegados (less population space, costs food, have half the attack of a Renegado, double rate of fire and 2 more range), so if a Spanish player focused previously on Saloon mercenaries (particularly Renegados), picking Mexico is a must. Also, because all upgrades are calculated from base stats, every upgrade that affects Chinacos' attack is twice as effective because it is applied to base and not halved attack.
Last but not least, Mexico also offers the "Central American Allies" shipment, which ships 3 Native Embassies and allows the player to train Navajo, Apache, Maya and Zapotec units regardless of the map. If a Spanish player focused previously on native shipments and units, picking Mexico for revolting synergizes well.
Recommended shipment cards[edit | edit source]
- Riding School: This can facilitate the further creation of Vaqueros.
- Advanced Arsenal: Improvements allowed by this shipment benefit the units Mexico provides.
- Stockyards: Vaqueros and Charros can gather food from herdables, so it helps to fatten those faster.
- Landgrab: Makes Livestock Pens cheaper, which synergizes with the Vaquero ability of gathering from herdable animals.
- Unction: Missionaries increase the attack of nearby units. This can boost the attack of Chinacos, Vaqueros, Charros and Native units.
- Llama Ranching: Vaqueros can collect from herdables, so having previously fattened Llamas can help to sustain economy while revolting
- TEAM Inquisition: All units gets +10% more hit points, which will benefit Chinacos, Vaqueros, Charros, Ironclads and Native units.
- Native Warriors: Makes Native units cost less, which applies to the Native units provided by the "Central American Allies" shipment card.
- Capitalism, Industrial Revolution and Factory: Since the economy stops momentarily when revolting (as long as the player still has not shipped Citizenship), having a trickle of resources is helpful.
