Halo Wars 2

Clearly not much excitement about this. I suppose that only makes sense when during the time AoE Castle Siege was announced, the PR man said "it's not the end of AoE".

Maybe Microsoft is getting its' RTS bearings down with HW2 before attempting to get another AoE going. I mean Ensemble is dissolved, .....

HILARIOUS bug on Cascade Range

not that hilarious. just looks like the cliff isn't an actual cliff but more of a steep slope. That's normally seen in the map editor.

Friendly AoE3 people

AoE community is nowhere near as toxic or inflammatory as the fighting game community. And even now it's not nearly as bad as it used to be. Just be lucky you aren't getting knifed for being the better player.

4 Settler card for Dutch and Ottomans

4vills probably better on maps with trade routes. 700 food/wood/coin are probably best after the bank shipment (though it's actually at equal value as the crate shipments). I'd say 4vills in place of crates/bank shipments if it's a high hunt map, you're going for tier 2 market upgrades, and/or the m .....

Chinese vs Ottomans

most of China's units have ranged resist, so you could go standard army in age 2 and send 8 Chus to go for an early engagement.

I've never even seen this match up though so I'm just theorizing about possibilities here. Like what would even be best to go to age 2 with? Seems like Summer palace would j .....

I agree with both statements about being indifferent and being upset after a loss.

Indifference is a sign of composure which helps you keep a cool head and make good decisions.

Being upset is a sign that you care all your effort resulted .....

Trickle cards.. yes or no?

I think some trickles are good just because it's constant gathering, but it only seems to show it's paid off if it goes to late game. Otherwise you might as well just send units or some discount card.

Hakkapells

Using Hackapell as German mostly depends on the match up. Like over 80% of the time, if you're going to send mercs, you should send Jaegers or black riders. They'll just give you more consistent mileage. Hackapell's only good to wipe out skirm, light infantry, artillery, and vills. If there's even 1 .....

Do you want to add any civs on aoe?

How about a pirate civ? One that doesn't have a home city, or villagers, but the villagers are outlaws that have higher than average HP and damage, but a negative multiplier against other vills, explorers and houses. And perhaps when you get a vill kill, you don't get XP but a higher amount of gold? .....

yes they're too expensive for how vulnerable they are. they're slightly more useful than grenadiers or mantlets.
