Re: Fully automatic Weapon Systems

i feel like the idea is that the fixed gun is operated by people hiding in the circular bunker below, so it makes sense you dont see them

Rapid-Fire MU of the Week #2: USA vs Ottoman

mu.png Well I said I wanted to do this weekly and then immediately forgot about it. But we are back now. Based on some conversations and high level math in this thread, , we've determined that there are 210 possible civ matchups currently in DE with more to potentially come as a result of new civs....

[mention]u2[/mention] one of the main things I remember daut and and viper saying when they were experimenting with DE at launch was just how "swingy" the whole game felt compared to what they were used to, with shipments and high damage units and snare. I think that really captures the di...

Re: Team Ranked makes no sense

No one has actual friends in DE. We are all just interchangeable avatars. Just find an avatar around the same skill as you and ask if they want to play sometime

Do I really have to spell out how to make acquaintances on the internet

I hope everyday when I connect that they announce ranked lobbies for team. The current system just don't work as it's designed for 1v1... just curious, why do you care about having ranked lobbies? casual lobbies already exist, there's nothing stopping you from making premade games there and arrangi...

Re: Learning the French

what about an age 2 timing w musk/xbow/huss though? I feel like that usually works vs this firepit laming. if i wait till age 3 i feel like the aztec base is too secure / the boom is too far along, hard to stop them from massing or going age 4

I would not suggest to pressure Aztecs in age2 when they're WP booming. Just do greedy FF/semi FF.

Re: Introducing the Rapid-Fire MU of the Week: China vs. Haudenosaunee

I feel like I've had luck with haud against China by using small strategic wall segments, to prevent my army from getting surrounded by the melee cav and melee infantry in age 3. I think this works since haud has stronger ranged units (fp and mr) but weaker units to body block (kanya and tomas). I w...

Re: Introducing the Rapid-Fire MU of the Week: China vs. Haudenosaunee

free placer mines, plus the 3 vill + warhut age up is also new on DE. I feel like haud can have a really strong early-mid eco especially if you dock start. you have have 30-ish vills while you opponent has 21-22, without doing anything except dock start + 3 vill age up + 5 vill shipment.

I imagine by looking at a civ of the month, you would look at all possible matchups for that civ, meaning you would see your favorite civ every month. Oh I get it now. Yea, but see I feel like this is just too close to being a civ guide, which is fine but not what I am after, since lots of civ guid...
