Re: E L E C T R I C I T Y

Can I go with Serbian?! Haha. Actually do you mean ethnically, or by birth, or naturalised, re-naturalised, or claimed?! And by "electricity" I'm guessing you mean the colloquial modern usage of the term (AC). And I just googled it and it's spelt 'Nikola' not 'Nicola' b...

Re: AoE3 French Treaty Guide

Haha, I'll consider it if he first shows me he can beat the 'easy' AI using Fur Trade.. (Edit: I'm sure he'd kill me in no time in a match-up, judging by the ELO ladder stats alone, not to mention the experience differential! This isn't really about that though: I'd like to see how a pro tackles the...

Re: AoE3 French Treaty Guide

Nobody is playing treaty against AIs since it is no challenge at all. Just play online. Haha. ok... I'm guessing you haven't done this then! If it's "no challenge at all" I'd love to see a recorded game of it being done. I'm guessing why I can't seem to find this anywhere is not because i...

Re: AoE3 French Treaty Guide

It's like that in the statistics, but not in the score. Good to know, thanks. ..AI's are just bad and worth nothing, especially in treaty... So you have already done this then? If you haven't; try it - you might find it a challenge, even as useless as AI are, and with 40min treaty, and with the ama...

Ok great! So its possible to get a higher score by not using Fur Trade then :) (In a long game..)

Re: AoE3 French Treaty Guide

Most games don't last that long and in a mirror you're gonna be overrun without fur trade cause of fewer res and less strong military. Depends what kind of games you're playing: ever beat 7x allied AI on 100% resource handicap? (without Aklaks genius/trickery!) (You could say one gets a bit over-ru...

Re: AoE3 French Treaty Guide

Just compare the scores you can have with and without fur trade. As a side issue: This is actually not fair scoring btw - the score doesn't reflect the fact you LOSE (swap) the food you traded for gold. Instead it seems to count both the traded (lost) food and the 'free' gold towards the scoring. e...

Actually you don't have more resources using Fur Trade and Food Trickle (for games longer than 87min), vs using say Food Silos and Rum Distillery. See my above analysis..
(That's assuming the mirror game pounds on for that long! haha.)

Re: AoE3 French Treaty Guide

Thanks for that _NiceKING_, I've updated my analysis above with those figures.

I still don't like Fur Trade! But it is good economically for shorter treaty games (just not long ones).

Re: AoE3 French Treaty Guide

yup, wood is also .5, coin mines are .6, hunts are .84, herdables are 2.0 (except for iro aztec sioux which are 1.25 i think), fish are .66 and whales are .5 i'm unsure of berries but i think they're .66, so slightly better than mills since they don't need walking time Cheers! - that's really helpf...

Re: AoE3 French Treaty Guide

the base gather rates for mills and plantations are different though.. .. in addition to that, you can send many more military shipments before 40[min] using fur trade than you can if you have to send a bunch of plantation upgrade cards Thanks! - That's really helpful, I didn't know what the base g...

Yes it certainly is! But what I'm actually saying is that it isn't really as OP as possible!; French post-imperial upgraded resource production rates are well and truly OP though!

Edit: I did a detailed (economic) comparison on both: see below..

Re: AoE3 French Treaty Guide

Great write up in general thanks _NiceKing_ but I don't think you have the optimal deck for France in Treaty (well 30 or 40 min treaty anyway). (This below is for AOE3/TAD btw..) Leaving all the good tips aside I'll just focus on highlighting the five main issues: - Fur trade card shipment is not a...

Re: why people play treaty?

I like your name. Concrete is cool. Cheers! Somehow this was the first thing that came to mind.. (Although I'm not sure they had concrete, as we know it, at this point in time (AOE3 period); perhaps for AOE4?! - although it might start to look a little like Command and Conquer (/Red Alert) by then....

Re: why people play treaty?

First post, new on here. Be nice! Oh, and keep the Treaty. Adding myself to the treaty fan brigade. Live & let live I say +1 In fact they should EXPAND it if anything; why not allow up to say a 60min treaty? I am getting good-ish* at treaty and have barely finished building a robust base with a ...
