Re: Cannot Download Patch

This happened because we had some database problems recently so the path was probably moved. I'll forward it and try to find an installation myself. EDIT: This is the only version I could find; it's an older version of the patch but it should update to the latest version automatically. I've forwarde...

Re: Smurfs

Well smurfing in general is bad for any given competitive game. Research the competitive aspect and matchmaking (ELO) if you don't understand why. Smurfing has always been rampant in AoE3, but I'm not sure why. I think it might have to do with ignorance from the community, as shown in this thread.

Re: Smurfs

Stop caring so much about winning and take the opportunity to learn from higher lvl players. I hate smurfing in cs:go since it can destroy the experience for 9 people but i am basically fine with smurfing in aoe3. Always great to play against better players... So why isn't it great to play against ...

Re: EP3 Public Release

Realistically though, at what point in the game are you going to get 12 teepees in the same place with both cards sent? Regarding the warchief, one major problem that hasn't been mentioned is that the warchief remains in cover mode after being revived from the war pit, even though its speed isn't ha...

Re: Right of speech and democracy in holland

This Lazarus'd nationalism happens in a certain context, when most people lost a hard/metaphysical principle to live by. This is especially the case in the Western world, where society has been laicised, economics discredited, which eventually led to a crisis of political paradigm. What is the soci...
