Re: TREATY - Florence Night Brit Houses

As others have said, FN is sadly useless. The other manor boosting card, estates, is one I'm a fan of in both treaty and non treaty.

Re: Russia vs Japan

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

You're right. I was thinking that I might've missed something from the Warchief civs.

Russia vs Japan

Hey all, so I decided to try my hand at a strategy write up, but seeing how my PR is hardly impressive, I'm directing this one specifically towards newer players, around the Lance Corporal to Master Serg range. Any 2nd Lieuts and up feel free to correct what I say. So, if you're starting out in the ...

Re: Thoroughbreds in 1v1?

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 ...

Re: Portuguese versus French

I think France straight up wins this matchup except on EP, where Ports are ridiculous.

The biggest advantage Portugal would have are their superior dragoons negating the French heavy cav

Re: AoE3 Times: Issue #002

I just had a mirror game where I used CdBs in an emergency to hold off a big push and ended up using them to shoot away my opponents hunts and build a barracks on his last coin mine. It ended with ~40 CdBs and like 6 musks fighting at once and was hilarious and... I didnt record it :(

Re: dutch check or rush play

I like the Dutch a lot, but they do straight up lose some matchups. You need to reach Age 3 ASAP so lots of civs that thrive on early pressure (Germany, Russia, India-ish) can take them out easily. But if you survive, or your opponent tries to out boom you, the Dutch can spam out endless batches of ...

he is talking about a bug that lets you revolt and age at the same time by pausing and clicking both buttons at the same time.

Any advice for someone stuck at Master Serg? I've got the Samwise and 5 cav semi builds down for France but I often blow games after starting out with an early lead and am stuck in the 16-18 PR range.

Revolt Duel

Anyone ever done a form of treaty where you have to stay in age 4 and revolt at the end of it? Seems like it would be fun, mainly a war for the trade route if there is one and two sides trying to snipe each other's factories. I don't know about the rest of you, but whenever I think of Age of Empires...

Merc style germany is a more inconsistent variant of normal germany.

Re: German FI/Merc build?

They get 10 settler wagons. IF you send all the shipments and if you send them all in a row thats really risky and greedy.

Also having only 3 starting eco units means you cant be as flexible super early game. I like sending 1 vill out to herd or chop wood right away

German FI/Merc build?

I suck ass at Germany. I find them too weak economically and inflexible. (I feel pretty much forced to build a TP and send the SW shipments first and second each game) I know I've seen Aiz and Mitoe do interesting stuff with mercs and FI-ing. Whats the process for those builds? Any good recs to study?

Re: Useful micro tips?

Learn how many units need to shoot a particular unit to kill it. If 4 skirmishers one shot a unit and you use 15, youre overkilling.

Unpopular: Don't like attack move. People at higher levels will abuse it by bringing tanky units like vills up close to the fight.

Re: Looking for a game to cast

You can cast my brother and cousin play.

Full disclosure: They're a private and conscript and their games take like 3 hours long but they make up for it with long periods of not doing anything and stacking like 6000 resources before aging.
