Re: The underrated case for forts

I think forts should be slightly weaker but much easier to construct, as Callen is right that they are situationally really strong if you are able to build it. The difficulty of building them is by far their main weakness. It would be interesting to see their HP nerfed a bit (e.g. 8500 hp to 7000 HP .....

Pike or dopp semi-ff ideally on a map you can go stagecoach. You can do a lot of different things from there, but greedy options like going age 4 for heavy cannons or 1k wood and a TC drop are definitely out of the question.

Re: AOE2 DE THREAD

The most recent patch seemed to buff quite a few civs kind of in a big way, at least according to SotL on YouTube. Teuton buff seems very cool. I do completely agree with you that the counter system in AoE2 seems terrible from the eyes of an AoE3 player, the rock-paper-scissors isn't quite there sadly.

Galleons do kinda deserve some sort of combat buff considering they cost 2x a caravel yet trade about evenly with just 1 (provided the caravel has its broadside).

It depends on how much you want to commit to water.

Re: Reloading while moving

The rate of fire of the unit is determined in the protoy file and AFAIK is independent of whether the unit is moving or not. You could probably do this if you could create new unit animations and messing with tactics, but new animations are impossible to create currently.

Re: Japan 300w as first shipment: The follow up

I think getting a TP when you are playing agro as japan is better than a market and techs.

If you're playing slow japan (5:00+ age up) the tp doesn't help your progression until your fourth shipment, but if you are aging earlier it will help out a lot and make sending 2 orchards less awkward.

Also, if .....

Re: otto ff tower

Now isn't just too easy for otto to pull back, send 1k wood, drop 2 tc's, and build ca to counter your rifle riders? As sioux you'll have no eco and no siege, so there's no real way to effectively take down the tc's early besides preventing them from going up in the first place.
