Re: _Uhlan_ come back

He was one of the few sup players who didnt blindly bash on treaty but actually played it a few times! treaty sucks This comment informs me greatly about your IQ. To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Treaty. The micro is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of applied ec...

Re: On endurance in competitive AoE 3

This is 100% my achilles heel. If I had a dollar for every game I race out to an early lead and blow it I could fund a tournament.

I know opening builds pretty well but can't really think on my feet past the 20 minute mark or so.

Outposts... yeah. Probably woulda been good. Did do stagecoach and it helped a lot until his mortars just destroyed them from out of their LOS.

I absolutely stole one of your builds. And it worked perfectly. I had everything down at one point but a dock and a couple shrines. I feel like most players would've GG'd but this guy just played hide and seek after that for half an hour.

I don't get it. You can't outboom them, fine. But I just lost after a 10/10 native rush wiped my opponent's town out and they just played hide and freaking seek for half an hour and spammed shrines too fast for me to siege. It was Yucatan and they had ships that I couldnt reach with my army so I wen...

If it is already October 11th where you are, but you're in a country that uses the D/M/Y heathen calendar, you can celebrate tomorrow on 12/10. For everyone else, today's the day! Go forth and build your forward bases.

Re: What went wrong with the WarChief's tournament, and how can we improve future tournaments?

I don't think it was a failure, but the restrictive civ set wasn't great. In the finals of a tourney meant to showcase the TWC civs a warchief civ won against a vanilla or TAD one once, Aizamk's Sioux vs Russia.

Re: All maps/standard maps

Off topic but I really don't like playing on standard maps. Map plays a huge role in what civ I'll pick, and standard kinda forces me to play only France or maybe Dutch because my other civs can be royally screwed on certain maps.

My guess/hope is the time period is early post-colonial America, with civs like Brazil, Mexican Empire, Haiti, Gran Colombia and USA joining Britain/Spain/France and various native tribes. Also kinda suspicious about this timing, but if it's legit it gives me hope that they don't pass over the era b...

Re: most played matchup?

I know my most played is France vs Japan, a matchup I can't seem to get the hang of, even though I know what France is supposed to do. I've switched to Russia and Brits lately and had more success. Because of how often a Japanese player will take the matchup against Russia, Russia vs Japan will prob...

Requesting Kynesie replays

Looking to improve my turtling strats, specifically with Ports and Brits. Who better to learn from than the master of wall spam?

Of course if there's a replay out there using a Kynesie-esque strat with those civs it'll work too. I know Bonneng does something weird with Brits and VC.

In my experience eco is fine as long as you can get steel traps. I get pretty regular batches of 20 Strelets.

But as I said, this is specifically for mid range players. Someone with a more nuanced grasp of the game will probably sniff out the bluff

I'll defend the card, but it's far from a sure thing. It's basically a Plan B or C card, very useful if you get in one of those age 3 stalemates, and shouldnt be your first option, but I keep it in my decks just in case. I don't think riding school or early skirms are better, though I do have early ...
