Anyone here ever had confusion of AOE in real life? Like if you see someone building a house two blocks away, you think, "Hmm, I wonder if he clicked B-E, or if he used his hand?" What the heck?!

Or...

You wonder how those axers can cut trees.

Or...

You wonder howcome there is more than 1 person on the farm over there.

Etc...

Plz share similar situations.

P.S. A friend once told a joke, and I said out loud, "LOL". What's up with that??? One time I was at the river, and thought of putting a storage pit by the water and forest, What the heck???!!! LOL

When I play AoE/RoR, I make sure I win in my last game before going to bed.
 
Why? Well, this one time I lost my last game to a persian, had nightmares of being chased through town by *FAST* armored elephants 3 stories high all week. I was looking for the hop- uh, I mean cops, but couldn't find any. I guess they were out of gold or something.

That happens to me also sometimes. I feel like selecting people until I realise that I'm not at the computer.

Two guys I work with play on Zone and we have all 1000 taunts. We can have converations just using taunts. I'm sure it freaks people out to hear one of us say "52" "19", and the other smile and say "770".

No, he isn't. Various PINE FOREST tiles, have either 40 or 75 wood. The "dead" pines have 75 I'm sure of.

Maybe next time you find yourself at the beach, with the sun beating down on you, you will worry again about "bronzing time".

How quaint, I dream of...


girls
food
sleep
girls


Actually, my dreams are the most bizarre concoctions imaginable, but not of aoe. However, my next dream will probably be of girls serving 300 units of ele meet to sleeping kings whilst the queen is away...


...Or sleeping in a boat rowed down the Nile by naked women (historically accurate) while villies cast nets to the back sides.

(No offence to women intended, I actually like them, and the villies would be naked too, that just isn't as pleasant a thought to me.)

To Kavil (the only girl I know to be a girl here)

Please don't read this. (maybe I should have put this at the beginning.)

Wait!! I now recall an aoe dream

It was a huge tireme war, with all the sights and loud noises, but no units were dying, they just kept shooting at each other. It was kind of like Moses and the burning bush. ay?

I used to chase girls, but now I find myself chasing enemy cavalry...

AOE sure is a lot of fun, but it is detrimental to your social life.

I am scared to extrapolate (from my initial one month experience) but methinks that the quality of your love life is inverse square proportional to the amount of years that you have been playing AOE!

When I think of those self-proclaimed "experts" who have played 2000+ games I can only shudder...

you guys are lucky not to dream of aoe... i have dreams about AoE every night! one dream i was a villager standing in this field, and there was one peice of gold, one fist sized rock, and a tree... and on the other side of a river there was a HUGE kingdom... and then i heard a voice that said "build me a kingdom better then that one and you shall be the best in the land" as a looked at the rock and the dead tree a huge army of ele's and cata's came running acrost the river. i woke up and thought, ''ill have to make that a SCN tomorrow'' LoL but usely i dream of games i have lost.. or ones i have won! but its horible to be dreaming of aoe several times a night!!!
