If we show MS/ES that RoR lives on despite being outdated, maybe they'll make another expansion!

This is so cool! every time i get done posting something, some one has posted on some other thread!!

anyway, for me there is no RoR, i own AoE and AoK. Long long ago when AoE first came out i made a big mistake, right away i started dm-ing and never got skill in RM, and now i just got AoK and you know what?? all i play in it is DM.. same big mistake as AoE.

I started out just like villie. DM only. DM this, DM that. DMer. Period. I tried RM, and cant get enough. now I think DM sucks, my opinion, and I only play RM, mwahahaahaha!!!

you are right. I think that the "heaven should close it's doors" thread started a few people to post again. I know it got me to.

the thing that bugs me is most RM'ers say DM is a no skill free for all blood bath. ITS NOT!!! IT TAKES SKILL AND STRATS! Thats why there are "rookie" dm'ers and "pro" dm'ers. it can be a no skill blood bath, but the way i play it isnt....

Quite right, there *is* strategy in DM, just not the same kind.
 
I fail horribly in DM, my playing style doesn't work well there. I only won 1 dm in RoR, and I was persian. Their elephants are cool, they can kill almost anything from choson legions to greek helepolii to hittite heavy cats!

alas, the all mighty elephants. they are a strong contender in DMs, with enough of them egypt can play a good DM. but the elephants big week spot is archers. even mroe so when its assy horse archers, they can pick off one eley at a time till the player is out of food. wedsaz, if you ever get to play again i'd like to make a deal with you, we co-op in a RM game so i can watch a fast bronze and learn how to do it, then you can watch me pull off a win on a DM.

I have a better idea, seeing as how I don't really intend to play DM.
 
Here goes: I'll show you several fast bronze stats, and then we play as a team with me as tribber. It's not easy finding willing DMers, and DMers are used to handling a lot of military at a time and defending territory rather than just killing enemy villies while their ally or even their own town is dying.
 
I *will* play AoE again someday, even if I have to do it on the last x86 computer on the planet! Ok, enough fanaticism. I'll probably get to play a lot sooner than that.
 
Have you ever tried elephant archers vs horse archers? I myself have had much success with them, against not only archers but also helepolii and academy units.

i have tried horse archers vs ele archers.. heres what happend...


my horse archers were killing buildings so they were in that U-ish shape. the enemy, a human, started sending a line of ele archers out. well since my horse's were in formation they just started shooting the eleys one by one. by the time a eley got to shoot he was below 50hp. well, it ended up i got 120 kills that game and most of them were eles. heres why, the horse archers with there speed line up and ALL shoot the eleys, the eleys being so slow take a lot longer to line up so that several are shooting. one eley will shoot about 2 shots then die, the next eley not even lined up yet starts getting battered by the horses, he pulls off about 3 shoots then dies, on and on. does that make sense?

with horse vs eleys the horses are best, BUT horses vs helo's or eleys vs helo's its plain to see which is better when it take 2 helo's shots to kill a horse.

That sounds more like a battle of good management vs poor management.
 
I had some experiences of my own with horse archers vs ele archers, except I had the ele archers. I won the battle every time. What I do is clump them before moving into any uncertain area. It takes longer but I'm always ready for a fight.
 
What beats massed ele archers well, in order: cats, priests, cataphracts, maybe scythes I'm not sure. Oh and iron age towers too, like so many units.
 
You may want to try them a bit, they're a wonderful unit and require no extra research if you're using other archers already. I find they take down heles, other archers and cents quite wonderfully if you handle them well, which can allow using other units such as AE.

your right about the management part... i rushed him and he had nothing but barr's and archery's and i was picking um' off one at a time, so he just was making and sending out eles with no plan or organization. I havent actuly tried ele archers yet but my friend swears by them..
