!! Tropes present in Cossack 3
* ArrowsOnFire: Archers switch to these when ordered to attack a building.
* CripplingOverspecialization: Ranged units can not fight in melee, at all. If enemy gets too close, ranged units try to escape.
* YouRequireMoreVespeneGas: There are ''six'' resources for player to collect and keep track of.
** Food. Used to keep your people fed and do research. Food is constantly consumed, so players need strong economy or store food before creating their armies.
** Wood and Stone: Used to build buildings.
** Gold: Used to pay upgrades, or hire merceneries. Merceneries use gold like normal troops use food, and if you run out of gold they will rebel against you. Artillery also uses gold to fire.
** Iron and coal: Used by gunpowder units to fire and to produce units. If you do not have iron or coal, your gunpowder units can not fire.

* WeHaveReserves: The aforementioned high population cap (in fact, theoretically infinite in ''Back to War'') and the fact that some units can be trained in literally ''less than a second'' means that this is a perfectly viable tactic.
