  1. I'm glad that archers don't do much damage to buildings. Shooting arrows at a house would break the windows, and shoot through the weaker sections in the walls, but nothing much beyond that.

    It always amazes me on forums how it'll be dead for DAYS and all of a sudden a HUGE flurry of activity arises. LOL!

    I think you guys are doing a great job, and don't ever think my suggestions are anything other than that. *tips hat to the programmers and creators.*

    Dead for days.

    About two months ago it was dead for about two weeks. It got really boring.

  2. We have plunder. Kill a unit or destroy an enemy building you get plunder (this will be very important for the Huns civ in Part 2). You also get whatever resources the enemy trade cart was carrying if you kill it.



    If it's not too much work, could resources be stored on the map? That would make raiding tactics much more effective than they are in other RTSs. You'd charge in, raze a warehouse or two, then run before the bulk of the defending army can respond.

    Better yet, you could raid a storehouse and steal all the food, and then run away with it, bolstering your own supplies for that final push, leaving the hapless defenders without the resources to train more units.


    It's just that I like the raiding suggestion, and the hapless soldiers and, and DEATH FOR ALL!!! Sadism rules.

  3. yay :( i wonder what idea it will be. but still im waiting that the beta or the alpha(i dont remember which comes first)would soon come out. (y) (this doesnt relate to A.D.-->)I think that the empire earth games are good games.i just dont think that the game is focused on every century.example if you would play medival time in empire earth and then play a medival game like stronghold.i think its not the same thing. thats my opinion whats yours? :eek:

    :P gee i wonder what it could be (y)

    I think that EE and RON never put enough into ancient or medieval time-frames eg. RON: something like

    4 out of 9 ages are ancient or Medieval, the rest all have gunpowder, it's like they (big huge) put it in to stretch the game out a little.

  4. But will units be able to man the walls, like in the Stronghold series?

    Ahh Stronghold, Rarely has a series been so stuffed by a sequel, a unfinished, poor sequel at that too. Not that S: legends is all that much better, Firefly and 2K really sold themselves short heaps.

  5. Americans have been committing crimes in newly liberated countries for a hundred and fifty years. During the America-Spain War, man would I have hated to be Cuban or Filipino. Rape, loot and murder it's all the same when you "helped" out a country. Especially when they didn't ask you to, Iraqis didn't ask to have a debilitating war, and while they gives thanks for getting rid of Saddam now people are wondering when are the "Coalition of the Willing" going to leave. Hearing that "things are worse here now then they where during Saddams reign" from real Iraqi's who can't just pick up and leave, makes it so much worse, And the three leaders of the "cow" (he he he) have lost their respective elections (sidenote: Howard's probably the only loser due to war on terror but Blair lost all respectability and Bush lost the election for the Republicans because now they won't back out).

  6. If i where Iraqi I'd like to not be affiliated with Iraq in any way until this whole mess blows over. Just like my grandparents the Philippines and Ferdinand Marcos in the 70's. As a result my Mum grew up in a Malaysian Convent.

    This getting to personal for you.

    EDIT: also I'd spell "Iraqui" without the u. like this: IRAQI.

  7. Me scipii_alemanus got together and were thinking, thinking about how the community here is losing steam and how places like TW center are doing mad/sick/well. Then we (I) thought maybe you should get a group of people to spread the word. official-like. and maybe another part could design sigs, banners and gasp SIGBANNERS ( :) yay :) ).


  8. From memory didn't the greeks have powerful cavalry and archers but as time wore on they slowly made more use of Hoplitai.

    By the way I'm just Scipii_alemanus. I lost my password and I stopped using my normal hotmail address as it was to clogged with... I don't even want to know (shows what happens when you give your brother your account name {not password})
