Re: Is Ethernet significantly better than Wifi?

So the CE / EE contest aside, the answer is yes cable is better and makes the game more enjoyable to play. Especially with how aoe3 handles unreliable moments in connection.

Re: Is Ethernet significantly better than Wifi?

None of the numbers thrown out cover why you should cable connect imo. Type of connection does affect the consistency of your internet. If you have ever had with your cellphone for example a time where you just have to refresh the page and it loads instantly. It's a time where you lost the internet ...

Re: Disproving Virginia Company @GoodSpeed

All this testing ignores the fact that it's only being tested for the absolute best case which is where someone sees you go VC but let's you build 20 manors before army anyway and causes you no sub optimal walk time or hunt denial. When you play normal you can afford to build your houses spread out ...

Re: india vs china

Or you could just age up normally and still build a tp in transition perhaps with more vils in the wonder. 10/10 for eco almost had to be sub optimal.

Spain atp revolt. I'm pretty sure it's actually good since you can use your shipments for high value crates all the way to 4. Then atp helps for hussar production later.

Re: Is Amalgamation worth it?

I'm telling you, forget the tech exists. It will work out well for you. Either that or it just isn't a big enough negative for me to notice. It always feels so expensive at the time. You could get arsenal range for goons for the same cost basically. Wood is such a premium resource.

honestly 90% of brit games are 3 vill, 700w adapt, if your being rushed 6 lb or 6 musk or maybe 700g for a nice hus/musk timing. basically do these few builds: colonial timing: 700w 600w 700g (nice musk hus age two timing) semi-ff 5 vill 700w 700c (age up) adapt dbl rax musk rush: make 50 or 60 pop...

Re: Is Amalgamation worth it?

I never tech it. Usually it takes too long to break even and the limiting number of mines makes it kinda meh. Overall it's gonna be fine if you get it or not. I have not gotten out boomed ever due to not teching it. And the 200 wood could go to houses or arsenal or tc instead. Most people tech it. I...

Re: scheduled tournaments game - being delayed or cancelled

We already proved that the benefits of VC doesn't outweigh its cost. Especially if you skip 3 vils. It hardly provides any advantage if you send it after 3 vils and then only if you boom to 200/200 otherwise it's just strictly worse. I know certain people really want it to be viable but it's just ev...

Re: Send 300w and make a TP: worth it?

You also have to consider the opportunity cost of not having shipments early and the fact that you can use those to make more stuff to kill more stuff and get more exp.

It's actually a good amount slower if you spread the villagers optimally.

Re: How much are crates actually?

Vanilla I think they tick 30 on sw which means it takes 4 ticks for 100 crate. Which means they only gather 1.25x a vil instead of 2x a vil.

Any insight as to why people suddenly switched to TP builds as France? The Samwise build was king for years, but it's not like TPs are a new add on... always confused me. Also I'm realizing I never build a TP as France and maybe I should start... Same reason for partly why Russia is good now--peopl...

Re: this is how you fix FTJ

You confuse bandwidth with latency. It's nice that you bring up a solution but I would say you are not clear on what you are talking about or perhaps a language barrier exists. If I have a 1000 gb connection but latency is off some satellite it's still gonna lag the game. I am guessing the majority ...

Re: this is how you fix FTJ

Let it go. You need to understand networking. There are many complications that could cause port forward to not work that are on your provider end.

If you can't figure out portforwaed then find a fast vpn and try to minimize the lag I guess.

Re: Tell me why Nilla is worse than TAD :D

Yeah I would say that France goes double rax bows wth like 4-10 pokes and cannot lose. Once you have 40 bows the bumping of the cav and the fact that the front ones all die in one volley makes it almost impossible to break without just going pure bow yourself. The last time I played vanilla was to t...
