Wild 1234 told me that Deap sea fishing is faster...My only question is is it faster or not? He mght of had is confused with AoK.

I've never heard of that myself, but to begin with it's not going to be faster as your fishing boats will have to go further out, wasting time...maybe i'm wrong, it's just an educated guess

does anyone acually know for sure about this? I know that its faster in AoK, and think that it is also in RoR, but I'm not positive...

anyone here that knows the truth for no doubt?

That is something they added for AoK.

All fishies are equal here.

If it is, that would explain a lot.

That's only in aok. in aoe get your shorefish with ur fishing boats first - they're closer to the dock.

what exactly would it explain?

Why some fishing-based strats are sometimes fast and sometimes not, for starters.

Also fishing seems to be much less important on medit in post-patch RoR than before said patch. People still fight over the sea sicne they think it's valuable, but are more successful with land econs. This is reflected in the mix of civs to some extent; shang, mace and assy are on the way up at the expense of phoenie and mino, hittite and yammy gain a lot from a land econ and heavy sea warfare.

As shorefish is usually more abundant and closer to land on medit than seafish, any difference between seafish and shorefish would have a significant effect on medit.

All this seems to have happened after the patch, so it could be that they did the same thing with RoR fishing as they did with AoK, and didn't bother telling us. For precedent, try to find the phoenie wood bonus in the AoE manual.

The very fasted is whats close food to you. Close food may be some fish near your town center villagers can bring. Close food can be a few fish spots very close to a dock with a few early boats. Close food can be elephants you can lure & kill next to your town center or some deer you can herd & kill next to your town center. All the above depends on the map you get and being able to adjust ingame. The best players do all the above in many games.

Your *early* food will win you games.
