Re: How do i just 'improve'?

According to your ESO profile, you've only played 313 rated games since you created your account (and I'm guessing not all of those are 1v1). Now compare that to the thousands of games logged by most top players. While watching recs and learning from your mistakes is definitely important, you also n .....

Re: Aoe3 DE Expansion

If the approach MS has taken towards AoE2 is any indication, new civs for AoE3 are almost guaranteed. Hopefully they'll get in contact with the WoL and NE teams -- with some balancing the civs those guys have made could be a solid addition to the game.

Minimum range on cannons

I'm sure most people here have had the frustrating experience of having cannons (particularly falcs) do no damage when firing at a unit at close range.

Does anyone know if cannons are coded to have a minimum range? Or is this just a bug?

Re: The Unexpected Events

The timing of this is less than optimal, but people are taking this way too seriously imo. If the devs making some funny changes to a fan patch for a 14 year old game for 24 hours is really making you angry, it may be time to reevaluate your life choices.

Re: Why do people complain about maps with many natural obstables?

Personally, I think this game would be pretty boring if every game consisted of a fight in an open space with no obstacles. AoE3 already has a minimal tactical component compared to other RTS games (think of the elevation multipliers in AoE2 or the river crossing penalty in RoN); there's no need to .....

You could have 6 spahi for 1200 food and increase the cost by 200 every time the card gets sent. It starts out as an amazing bargain but your returns rapidly diminish. It also prevent .....
