Re: AoE4 Footage coming soon

@Mr_Bramboy The fact that he said we should tune into XO in November is a pretty good sign. It may not be confirmed, but it's definitely in the cards. I would be surprised if we didn't see some sort of update about AoE4, even if it's not actual gameplay footage. Honestly, I would be hyped just to le .....

Re: ffa strategies

FFA is a lot of fun. If you're playing to win, the best course of action is to relocate to the edge of the map and build up there. Depending on the kind of player you are, you can build large or small - I personally prefer a compact base because it's easier to defend, especially if you get attacked .....

Re: French

I never understood how people could enjoy playing China. There's only one viable build in most matchups and you don't even micro your units most of the time. It's just age, ship units, mass cav, z-move. Where's the enjoyment in that?

Re: French

In my experience the best way to play against China is to go for a naked FF and open with skirm/goon, then swap out goons for cuirs if he isn't massing civ. I usually find that I age up before China and therefore have a window to mass and pressure him before he assembles his death ball. However, if .....

Re: French

For lower level players, throwing up a few segments of wall during the transition to age 2 can make a big difference. High level players will adapt, but MS 10/10 bots aren't going to know how to deal with it.

Re: How to play on a mac?

One option would be to install Windows on your Mac using BootCamp. It essentially partitions your hard drive between the Windows and Mac OS, and allows you to switch between them by restarting your computer. The downside is that your brother would have to buy Windows, but the basic home version is f .....

Unfortunately, there hasn't been active support for this game since ~2015, so there's nothing you can do.
