Now, a glimpse at the Maori. Nice carpeting, sure, but a simple glance to the left pretty much drowns all hope the Maori could have. If New Zealand was off the coast of Portugal they’d be a regional power, but Oceania is a dangerous place.
Still, the Maori have their unique unit, a stronger Pikeman which upgrades more quickly and buffs nearby units! Then again, to use them in combat against anyone close they’d need to get through the Great Barrier Caravel Carpet, so the Maori are doomed to irrelevance. Unless, you know, Australia DOWs.
