Used to love AoE2 because of huge changes from AoE1 -> AoE2
"OMG BUILDING IS FREAKING HUGE!"

However i tried to play back AoM and AoE3, but i couldnt get into "the zone" because battle feel slow / clunky.
Not to mention I now looking forward for asymmetric RTS design, so broodwar feel better for me (and red alert 3 to certain extend)

*Not saying the game is bad, but I think it no longer my cup of tea.

Yes I saw it Razz made me happy partially, but i'm not too excited... I mean, someone who plays AoEII clearly doesn't give a fuck about super quality graphics... and I'm really skeptical against steam, i'm not the gamer kind of guy. and I don't know the compatibility issues this might bring , which could suck balls.

Man, AoE 2 brings back my childhood memories. My main game time practically only consisted of AoE because it was so fun

marco: If you want some day play a game of aoc i also have voobly. only played 5 games in 6 months Wink

Back in the old days, when i was in school and had a lot of time, i played for a german clan in an AoC League. I loved this game so much.

I noticed through records that strategies changed quite a lot, and arena was back then considered as a noob map Laughing

I also tested the "mod" (expansion) and didnt like it that much, aoc is a classic and imho still the best strategy game ever made (i have to say im no more active since about 8 years Wink )

the mod is ok (imo) I still don't prefer it over regular AoC specially after voobly allowed desktop resolution for AoC (I use 1650x1080). The new civs are like meh, I don't love the balance changes to the existing civs.


i find arena a pretty noob map as well. still less noob than black forest. it can bring some funny games, economy vs military, just check how an well balanced economical spec with 0 military beat a military one in a matter of minutes:

Very cool AoE vids man. Fun to watch and lots of nostalgia. Didn't realize the game was still played competitively! Played a hell of a lot of AoE2 AoK as a kid. Never got very good at it though. Would try to power build my economy way too excessively to beat competent players. Greed was > me. Much thanks for the videos.
 
Do have a problem with saying the gameplay is more extensive than BW though. I mean BW was a god damned national sport with highly paid athletes training 14 hours a day with what is possibly the greatest skill gap and ceiling in video game history. Watching top level BW is like watching top level boxing. A subtle and intricate artform with levels of depth beyond the comprehension of those who have not have studied it.

"Don't you just hate when you are trying to conquer a castle and someone builds a fucking wall of houses and stone in front of you? AoE2 Logic. "
