Re: MU of the week: Japanese versus French on Kamchatka

Even on no hunt maps, I don't think ashi/club can be any decent vs France, and let it alone on kamchatka. Musk semi rapes it so hard because 15musks+cdb+mm will hold every push jap can do, and well in age 3 you can probably just vet musk/2falcs and win from here. FI should not work against a good pl...

Re: Suggestion for maps in EP

I think Oman would make an amazing map. It would probably look something like Carolina turned 90 degrees and desert. A towering mountain range called Jabal shams in the east, and Dhofar in the west, a land where the Indian monsoon turns desert into jungle for four Months out of the year https://en....

Re: MU of the week: Japanese versus French on Kamchatka

I have no word to tell how big the Shogunate nerf is :O Yeah, it is, because it is a bug fix. Getting 8 cannons as an age up bonus is not how it should be really. Very good analysis, same thoughts. This debate again lol. Frankly, considering how much it changes the balance, I don't think we can cal...

Re: MU of the week: Japanese versus French on Kamchatka

Btw yumi nerf is just 15% hp, range is the same. Disciplined yumi still rek skirms and they kinda do that even without sending the yumi card just because of the damage disparity. Basically at any point French are not leading the game they probably lost. Ah just he 15% HP? Yea then it's not that big...

Re: MU of the week: Japanese versus French on Kamchatka

I think full colonial can word as japan also i think Yes it can but it's a bit random imo. I don't think you can be really agressive because France can just hold the colonial ashi/nagi with skirm/goon and cdb, and later in the game (unless you manage to age at 10min or so), you just won't be able t...

Re: MU of the week: Japanese versus French on Kamchatka

In general, this MU is French favoured, however, on kamchatka, Japan can easily get goats, and this on top of having a lot of animals in base means they can build a lot of shrines which can be protected by yumis. I'm not sure exactly how many but it's probably like 10+ Toshogu. In addition, France c...

Re: Strategy Wall

I think it's important to note that quick search games are always rated. Rated games from lobbies are not rated when the game stops before 2 minutes. Dont forget that if you host a room, games under 2 mins arent rated, while qs games will always be. Nope sorry but you're wrong. If you host a game A...

Re: Ask the expert his opinion

Do you think that there are yet new meta's to be discovered in AoE, or are we at a 'stalemate'? I'm not the expert and I know I shouldn't answer this question, but since it's a very relevant one imo, I'll still do. I think that today, players are less and less open to new play styles and most playe...

Re: MU of the week: Sioux versus Portuguese on Arizona

You keep giving for granted that a) you're going to get all 3 TPs up Yes. As I said, that's the only issue with the build. If you can get 3 TPs up then it's miles better than the other Port builds. and b) that you have resources to stagecoach them plus getting units out to defend them. Which is a f...

Re: Kaiserklein vs. QueenOfdestiny BO31 25%HC

I haven't tested so I could be totally wrong, but I would be very surprised if 25% was enough for 2v1.

Re: MU of the week: Sioux versus Portuguese on Arizona

Eco theory gives a buffer of res early on, when it matters. It does but it's still a 1.5v shipment lol. Then it becomes gradually better and better. I've been using it since forever as well as other good players ofthe past and it works. Have they? Some have, some haven't, and anyway, people doing a...

Re: MU of the week: Sioux versus Portuguese on Arizona

Eco theory is not bad, it scales pretty fast. But if you don't like eco theory you can just skip and get 700x instantly. Eco theory is bad. By the time you get 30v, you're out of hunts/mines and you neeb to push out. Frankly I think even 2v is a better shipment than eco theory, it's only good in te...

Well, for reference Arizona: 1 copper mine, 4 bison, 2x9 pronghorns, 8 trees, 2 treasures. Hudson Bay: 2 silver mines, 4 moose, 9 elks, 5 moose, 8 trees, 2 treasures. I mean, I don't know exactly what you refer to with "just stay in base" but it's definitely enough to reach age3 and start...

Re: Kaiserklein vs. QueenOfdestiny BO31 25%HC

The one with 100% handicap, cuz of mainly snowball effect, for 2v1 to be somewhat fair the single player should not have more than 25% handicap I think, I'm 100% sure that with 25% handicap there's no way a player could beat 2 at equal skill level. With 100% I think the one player should win becaus...

Re: MU of the week: Sioux versus Portuguese on Arizona

I think port ATP musk semi should win it, as long as you make sure the sioux can't have too many pets. In the 3rd age the port should wall and play skirm/goon. Port skirms can't outrange wakinas so the sioux can't poke without commiting really hard, and once the port gets to the 4th age, goons just ...
