Re: What's aoe2 like?

The promotion back then started the AOE legacy. This doesn't mean it wasn't a good title but it still explains the popularity in large part. AOE2 is now successful because they started fueling tourneys again like 6 years ago or so. During active AOE3 era I think AOE2 faded significantly a bit like S...

Re: What's aoe2 like?

AOE3 was also not up to people expectations but it's not true it was a flop from the start. And I also think it peaked with TAD but I may be wrong on that. Of course SC2 is more popular than AOE3, but so is compared to AOE2. And I think Warcraft was too back then. It's just that blizzard games are o...

Re: What's aoe2 like?

AOE3 survived till there were ES support and sponsors fueling tourneys. SC2 is not growing. It's fading since WOL but can't go past the bottom line because it has SC and Blizzard brand backing it up. Also of course it's not a terrble title at all, but still a flop compared to people expectations. AO...

Re: What's aoe2 like?

The golden era of RTS was in late 90's and early 2000s. You clearly don't know what you are talking about. I do know that it was the golden era of RTS, but why? Of course, their popularity dropped because of MOBA and FPS games, but that doesn't mean that RTS games can't have a big community at all....

Re: What's aoe2 like?

The reason why aoe2 is alive has not much to do with the actual gameplay What? Why would that make sense? It came earlier and was more popular. That's completely due the period when the game came out. Then nostaglia, sponsors, I guess voobly, etc. The gameplay probably helps with the lag problem. B...

Re: What's aoe2 like?

The golden era of RTS was in late 90's and early 2000s. You clearly don't know what you are talking about. Being a better game is somewhat subjective. AOE3 has several flaws which perhaps make it worse in comparison. AOE2 is probably more suitable as an Esport just due to the amount of outplayabilit...

Re: TC is like 5 musks

Ye the contain part is what makes rush legit in AOE3. In fact in AOE3 there is only a soft strat counter system (rush > boom > turtle > rush). In general colo play and adapt from there (rush, boom or age up) is the dominant strat. TC and minutemen (and building restriction radius) are the asnwer to ...

Re: Official 2018 FIFA World Cup Thread

50 years is nothing compared to France history. Could even be 300 years and point still remain.
It is actual because of the WC and the migrant-related events.

Re: This Year's Autumn Tournament Will Use EP ELO

Number of games has nothing to do with reaching top10 or w/e spot. It totally depends on how many total games are played. There isnt such an arbitrary number that legitimates being in the top10.

Re: Russia vs Ottomans on Great Plains

You should never 400w FF. The whole point of the FF is to lame a win with forcing play. You place the tower offensively if you're the aggressor or you put it in base if the opponent throws something at you.

Ahah that game (and the whole series!) was so terrible.
Try some super all in stuff vs Otto FF and pray they don't adapt. Otherwise FF into full CA.

I think you don't, but ye with the extra vill you prob can age at 2.45-2.50 everytime. I guess I use the gold crate too much.

2.45 is standard with 300f start or 2 manor from 300w otherwise you need food treasures or something that speeds up the first card
