So what, you figured that everyone would still hang around here once AoK came out?

Still a few old posters hangin around and its good to see there are some new players showing up to learn new things. So what are you up to, Piranha? AoK, I guess. You just stopped by to see if we had nailed the lid shut on the coffin, right.

I haven't been in one of those TC wars yet. Every game this weekend was a 2+ hour epic battle finally decided by who had the most trebs, bombard cannons and cannon galleons. I have to admit it, the strategic possibilities in AOK dwarf those of AOE/ROR by a long way. You could have a favorite strategy in AOE/ROR and play it game after game. Not so in AOK, every game needs a different strat. (Have been playing random civs and mostly random maps though.) One thing I just can't make work in AOK, a big fish ship boom. The boats & docks cost a lot more wood, the fishing rate seems slower, less food in the water, need to make more buildings earlier, need vills on gold and stone earlier.

RW? Could mean "Roger Wilco", but it doesn't fit in that context. Roger Wilco is a software that lets you talk to people while playing so you don't have to type all that chat.

HCN = Hard Core Newbie would be my guess.

In aok you start with a town center that can defend your peons and also a scout which we should not forgot.

That scout while I was told has limited vision can probably do one heck of a job no? I mean you should know where's your next res pretty fast and also to find the first gathering places too.

Hill country has even worst fishing as in that it doesn't have any fish! Even continental ain't that great as far as boat booming. On large conti at least. As for medit well... yeah the fish is probably a bit gross. That's why lately I prefer hill & inland on which map the little mistakes and the tougher food input & the losts is given me headhake... I like it!

As for 2 hours games being more strategic then 40 minutes games I don't know. The shorter games means that he who controls is economy better and which makes the best choice wins while the 2 hour games means that the player with the most stamina and DM hability wins .

Might be wrong but I've seen quite a few people not liking Aok that much. Hope that people which find aok sucky come back to ror. Yes am dreaming!

Got the AOK demo now, Apoc. I want the whole thing though how sad. Nevermind - I'll give you a game sometime in the new year. You can kick my butt all around the feudal age instead of the tool age for a change

Bah. AoK demo = 46.8 megs. Thank goodness I have GetRight :P -- I hope to have the whole thing downloaded by the end of the week...or maybe I'll just start downloading before I leave school and see if it's done when I get back :P.

Vixen is right about the HCN...

Also, I think RoR killed itself, because

1)trainers and still no patch yet.

2)games in rated dont count more often. 2/3 games i played yesterday did not count. Today i had a game where i was winning 1494-500.. But I got an error, so that may not have counted too.

3)i forgot...something...

and i never heard of a tc war though...

hi RoR forum peeps im spending this fine morning surfing forums, trying to record my voice into a wav. file, listening to music. I'm easy to amuse i can't get my computer mike to work it worked with battlecom on another computer , not this one. I'm a computer idiot so this could take hours/days/years. I find myself visiting forums less and spending to many hours playing...think im gonna cut out of a beta test to have more time for the big3

Been losing most times in AoKs, everybodie else tells me that they win all their AoK games... well my military skills are really suckie in aoe/ror so this haunts me in AoK. At least i can make a econ. good so the enemy has plenty of vills and boats to kill

I can only last 2 AoK games in a row...then im brain dead or get a bad headache. I wish i could last 5 hours like some gamers do I don't like the dieing part much...never did in aoe or ror either, somehow death is worse in AoK The vills and elephants make such a sad sounds when they die.
AoE really rules (imo)..i love the choices in the beginning of AoE. Play a lot of aoe, haha when i play ror i forget there is queing...my hotkeys fingers go faster than i can think and in aoe a second hit on a build or TC cancels
In AoK too every game is different... really cool to take my scout and smack a boar...have him chase my scout home to my waiting vills over 300 food! many times my scout dies so i have to be more carefull. So you asked where is everybody

It does seem like after 2+ hours of AOK my brain turns to mush. Maybe if the ROR patch does come then more of us will play some of those sweet 1 hour ROR games just so we don't get worn out by just one game. Yes, the sounds in AOK are a lot more gut-wrenching. I get a little twinge everytime I hear a female vill give out a death cry. But, no mercy! I guess those Teuton TC wars are worse than I thought based on all the posts in GX and AOKH. I was wrong about the fish ship boom. I watched a replay of one of the epic battles this weekend. I watched from the view of the opponent with the highest score and best econ (stooge_boog). He did the fs boom. It was amazing to see it. He was in the pocket and made 34 vills in dark and no stone mined or barracks built before castle. By the time he hit feudal his pop was over 50. His biggest problem the whole game was 150 pop limit and yet he didn't delete the fish ships to build more army??? If he had our team would have lost bigtime. If you don't have to worry about a feud rush then I think 35 vills in dark is the way to go.
