I went back through the entire history of AoEH, October 1998, looking at strategy posts, and decided to make it easy on everyone else. Some of them are probably no longer valid, and I don't remember the content of some of them, (i.e., were they flame wars?) so they may be a little less than helpful, but there sure were a lot of great memories dredged up looking at some of the names. Its worth reading for that alone. So here is a list of all the posts I could find about strategy. If I missed some, let me know. If I messed up some of the links, well, you get the point. On with the strats!

Since this was brought back, I took a chance on updating it. I was a little afraid of that. Since I edited it, and resaved, it ignored all HTML.

Go here for the complete list.

Boy thorfinn, you sure have been busy making all those links! No wonder I never see you on the Zone!

I'm officially job hunting during the day, and one of my rules is no game playing during the day. However, some of the searches on slower sites take 20 odd minutes to run, so I bide my time here while waiting. BTW, this only took about 15 min. Amazing what cut-n-paste can do for you.

Excellent idea Thorfinn! Also a nice way to bypass the *****posts in here.

Great idea, Thor. Some of these must have been completely submerged, 'cause they don't even look familiar.

Now if Breydel could just somehow get this thread, or a link to it, on the Ager's Home, I would never have to go anywhere else!

Hey, Bredel, re: armagedn's suggestion to link to this thread, if you wanted to put a small page with these on it in the Ager's home, I'd be willing clean it up or arrange it better, or scrounge up some links from GX message board...

For an example, here's a quick and dirty HTML page that tries to sort them out by category. Has that annoying geocities popup, though...

And/or the APC page? I don't know AoEH's opinion of linking directly into their messageboard.. Anyone know?

Boy, do I feel stupid. It didn't even occur to me at first, but would AoEH want to have a page to showcase some of their best strat links? What do y'all think?

Hi Thorfinn, I just added the Geocities site to it. Man that is a superb idea. The best way so far to promote strategy articles over others here.

For the time being I called it "Thorfinn's forum strat index" but once it has a title then let me know and I'll change it. BTW, it's located in the forum section.

Keep up the good woik....

I'm going to try to get some more added by the first part of next week. BTW, Breydel, I have moved from geocities to a banner-less, popup-less site http://ww2.netnitco.net/users/jerde/aoeh_strat.html

Incidentally, one thing that is sorely lacking is more discussion on walling techniques. I got permission from Pritz to link to his GX post, but I am certain that there are more ideas out there. So if anyone feels like opening up a walling thread, that would be great.

Oh, and please let me know of other posts that should be included. Thanks to those who emailed me about my oversights.

Staffa I believe you have a post on knowing your skill level over on GX. I would like to include that, since it seems far too many newbies think they are upper intermediate or expert. Let me know, eh?

Alright, guys and gals. These go back as far as the history goes, October 1998, and there are a lot of really good things there. Looking forward to trying some of the strats that have gone out of vogue just to see whether people have forgotten them enough to make them work again.

I was also pleased to find out that <a name=...> works, so the index at the top bounces you around, and there are several "go to top" tags.

Happy reading! Lets see some comments on them!

I just tried to copy-paste my updates into the thread, and it looked very strange. Something is still acting up in the posting apparently. Its basically the same list, but there are a few more threads listed here.

I know you don't have time to fulfill Cherub duties Thorfinn, but your list is extremely valuable for strategy seekers. How about if the Angels put up a permanent link in the Academy?

I got an email about a couple months back. I said, of course you can put in a link. I'll even send you the HTML if you would rather have everything on a gamestats page. Then Cherub War I erupted, and I suspect everything that was within blast radius died. I suspect now that Cherub War II is over, there may be some time to regroup.

BTW, if Angels are reading this, I certainly don't mind a link or the whole works in Academy. There is one GX link -- Pritz's Walling Tactics. I did not find any walling threads here, so I emailed him asking if he minded, and he gave me an enthusiastic go-ahead.
