    way too powerful, i had a few try online but really... its not playable like this, cannons can kill everything and they cost nothing at start

    not talking about the chance to attack from water, really not playable like this imo

    Simply upgrade a colonist to a dragoon. Problem fixed. Dragoons are even cheaper.

    and so? whats the difference?
    dragoons dont get def bonus and since most of attacks come from water they cant attack...

    He is right. Its not until forts that you can actually consider yourself defended against a single cannon (this is with a cannon and infantry + fortified bonus as defenders). Especially the amphibious cannon assaults are silly.

    Best way anti-cannon rush is to build defense and get soldier FORT, if you know they are coming.

    Another way is to remove all citizen outside of city, and use dragon wait outside of the city. After the cannon attacked, you use dragoon to kill cannon, then maybe rebuild and counter attack.

    Of course pirateer could kill the ship carrying cannon, and you can always could attack.
