The other night I was witness to a memorable last stand by one of my allies. I have been on the poor end of many a last stand but I was lol when I saw his.

It was a 2v2 medit. map random civs. I got bab. and immediately panicked. I spent a good two minutes searching for my RoR manual. My ally was assyrian and my opponets I believe were carth. and assyrian. I nevered played bab before and started towering like mad. Well assy beat me back to my ally's base and started to close in on us. In iron I was useless on the sea for lack of triemes (I had run out of gold for fire galleys). My ally lost the sea after a tremendous battle. My last stand involved about 60 CA's. They got mowed down by cats and fully upgraded centurions. I resigned with nothing left but one house and watched the rest of the game.

My ally starting buiding a bunch of archeries. In about five minutes he had the largest regular bowmen army I had ever seen. Man, it must have been close to a hundred of them. Well, the carth opponet sends in about 12 centurions and , surprise, he gets mowed down by the bowmen. The bowmen suffered one loss. I have never seen so many arrows at once. It was hilarious. I had coke coming out my nose. My ally was no quitter. Some cats finally came and took care of the bowmen but it was pretty fun watching the bowmen wreck havoc for a short while.

I was wondering if anybody else had any memorable last stands?

I got routed out of my base by a scout rush once when I was Greek (ugh.) I had to rebuild with no gold, and no hope of getting gold. I spent the next hour and a half annoying people by sending waves of bowmen. I'd attack with 40 or so bowmen and kill one or two catapaults before all 40 died. It was sad... I had to relocated 6 different times...

I had a very memorable last stand a while back. it was a co-op 1v1, and we were playing the scenario, pathfinder. That one is where you start on a small island and must hop on the transport and relocate to the larger island divided into 2 sections. Onesection has food and the other gold. I was Minoana nd my enemy was Sumerian. I Compy rushed, but he kept fighting back with CAs. Finally, he ironed and fought us off with Cats. We tried building Camels and phalanx, but soon ran out of gold! We tried running to the larger island with the gold (I lost 20 vills this way), but he had defended it with Cats and Ballista towers. Finally he attacked with Cats and Horse Archers and took out our base. I still had several triremes, and I beat the trireme he sent to scout, but his cats were nearing my docks. I quickly built 2 heavy transports and loaded a vill into each one. Then, I unloaded the vills, on on each of the very small islands that you start on (the islands are 4x4 tiles)! I built an archery range on one, and houses on the others, and pumped out compies. So I had 16 compies on a island, and houses on the others. By this time the enemy kills my whole base, and starts looking for me. He sends some fire galleys, and attacks my houses, but my compies are in range and kill thos efire galleys fast! 400 / 5 / 16 * 1.5 = 7.5 secs to kill both! He keeps sending fire galleys, but I mow 'em down with the comps. Then he sends triremes, A couple comps die, but all 4 of his triremes die! About this time he captured the ruin, and kept attacking with ships, I killed most of them, but then the clock winded down. Finally my ally and one of the enemy left. He atatcked with 6 triremes, and killed half my guys! Then he unloaded Hcats right on the island next to my houses,killing all of them. By this time the clock reaches zero and I lose, but boy, was it hilarious to see the triremes die!

I think this was my longest post ever!
