Re: A Basic Guide to British

Vs Russia is it smart to go manor boom? I saw hazza doing that against you in a tournament (he brits and you Russia), but then his base got completely idled by Cossack + strels, especially since he didn't get his stable/barracks up until much later. Usually I don't think you want to be greedy vs Ru...

[mention]u2[/mention] Is the 500f ageup better than the Governor if you're planning to start huss? What I'm thinking is that the extra food would help to finish the batch, you can just gather more coin. The short answer is yes, I usually go 500f if I plan to make hussars. 500f does make it easier t...

Re: How do you go about teaching new players how to play?

Make sure not to introduce too many new concepts all at once. Don't nitpick about herding or build order, for example. They don't need to know that you should research Steel Traps as soon as you hit age 2 unless they're quite advanced RTS players. The Historical Battles can be played co-op now. That...

Re: Let’s try to get AoE3 to the redbull!

Im genuinely confused why AOE1 is so popular in vietnam and not AOE2 seeing as they came out pretty quickly after one another and run on the same specs. From what I understand, computer shops basically pirated AoE1 and put it on every single computer they sold. So pretty much everyone in the countr...

Re: Let’s try to get AoE3 to the redbull!

For comparison, the best AoE2 player--Viper--only had 190,000 followers on Twitch while he was still streaming on that platform.

Meanwhile, Chim Se (arguably the best AoE1 player of all time) has 1,300,000 followers on Facebook Gaming. I think he gets close to 100k viewers on his streams sometimes.

This video, The Next Major RTS Will Fail. This Is Why. , is pretty relevant to this thread. The demographics section is interesting, describing why focusing on the single player is so important - That's where you get new players, and have an audience much much larger than just RTS players.

I guess this is more balance related than anything else, but for a few years now I've wondered what the game would look like if you tried to reduce the snowball effect of single fights. Basically to accomplish this I would do this: 1) Decrease the cost of Mills/Plantations/Rice Paddies/etc. further....

Re: Learning the French

To be fair, I think of the 3 matchups you said you have trouble with, I actually think Aztec might be unwinnable based on the practice games I've had vs them.

their whole thing historically is running fast so im sure it's going to be some kind of speedy skirmisher or musket. really not looking forward to that if thats the case. there really hasn't been a single speedy skirm/musk that hasn't been broken and had to be eventually nerfed, so i hope they've r...

Re: Mitoe please help with Mexico!

is the tp or the hunting dogs start better? I've tried a lot of market start or TP start, and I'm pretty sure the market start is slightly better because you can age up faster. Should you go forward and send 10 insurgents first or 5 vills is a must? Both are options, but I find 5 vills to be better...

I remember back on EP I had a lot of success with Haudenosaunee doing an FF or Semi-FF into double warhut Tomahawk/Forest Prowler (ship 8 FP and 9 toma and get BBs, follow up with infantry combat) and just use the FP to zone away his army and harass vills while the toma siege the wonder.

Re: United Empires Spring Cup

Nah, seeding doesn't matter to me. If you intend to win the tournament you have to beat everyone anyway. It matters if you really care about the prize money, I guess, since better seeding makes it a lot more likely to place in a spot where you get prize money. But I'm not playing for the money :smile:
