over the last week I've noticed that we play either...

Medit
Hill country
or
Continental.

now these maps are nice but what about

Large Isles?
Small Isles?
Coastal?
and Inland

all of these maps are sweet and tons of fun rather than the boring 3v3 medit games we always play.

There are also tons of different FUN settings that are rarely played.

Tiny hills nomad start.

This one is loads of fun with Roman towers against shang slingers and aslways a few crazy sumer villager rushers.

Large Isles are usually lots of fun with plenty of fish and wood hardly ever see these. ruled by minos,hittite, and YAM...This is now my favorite map =)

Also different resource levels can also be fun...

some DM's I've liked are the tool age wars.

1 TC pumpin villies like mad while every one is killin with axers slings and towers definatly fun.

can do the same with bronze but its more fun if ya go tool cause your restricted to 1 TC.

What are some other games that you people would like to play??? I'd love to play some with ya and if you play any of these leave your name and maybe we can hook up later

Dunno about coastal and inland, but islands I think don't get played much because they become big sea battles - dropping transports full of troops on the enemy doesn't seem to be a major part of many zone strats. Come to think of it I can't even remember a single post or strat I've read that mentions using transports at all. Unless somebody knows different.

matter of fact there was something about transports a while ago. Saying you should put in as many units as you can. Can't remember anything else.
Prob with zone play is you gotta have good training these days so you have to specialise.

Here are what maps I play mostly:

Medit
Conti
Hills
Narrows w/Nomad Start
Large Islands
Tiny Hills Nomad
Small Islands Iron Age DM
3v3 Tiny Hills Stone Age DM

I don't like coastal because it is a very unfair map. One player will have lots of fishing while the other player can't boom.

There are different circles of players that play all of these settings on the Zone. IcemanT2 always hosts Large Islands, Azteca_MG hosts nomad Narrows, Tomahawk always hosts Tiny Hills nomad.

For my "pace changer" I like Small Island DM's and the 3v3 Tiny Hills DM's. They are a lot of fun, and aren't your typical Medit/Conti/Hills random civ games.

I'll have to meet this Iceman T guy =). I like to play islands because there are plenty of fish and you can always come back on the sea. but its very hard to defend from trannies without a large military at home...Yesterday while playing with _korean420 I had been kicked off the sea and was coming back had hit critical mass with my hittitea gallerys and looked at my wood cutters. They were all dead. Never play without sound =(. But I still managed to come back wih 3 villagers and have a small impact on the sea battle. unfortunatly right when I came back i lagged out=(. I can't stand Conti so open to tol rushes...I dunno just not to good at it =).

Blitz: I thought that Coastal was bad from what I heard but I did 10-15 generating maps in the editor and everyone had a forest usually good beries and pretty fair water on both sides...I know it had a bad rep in AoE but maybe you should check it out again?

Thanks. No wonder I couldn't remember any - 1999 ;-) Guess that proves your point in a way, huh?

It's simple, whne people think of land games they think of hillz and that just throws out any chance of inland/highland or coastal. People don't like half/half maps. When it comes to seas it's always medit or narrows cuz people hate trannys. And this slowly gets whitteled down to medit, hillz and conti as the zone gets smaller.
