What do you think about rushing? if you say no rush there are some annoying people who just rush anyway, when ure not ready.
I understand that their is no way for the creators to make no rush because you could just go into the enemies base, but they could maybe do something like make people stay in their own half/section of the map, but then what if all the trading posts are on one half! What do you think?
that thing with the walls is a great idea. a lot of the times when i played online i found myself being attacked before i was able to defend myslef. i dont enjoy playing with rush since games uauslly get more fun the longer they take. its juat that feeling that your fighting against someone your own level, not someone lower or higher that either loses quickly or wins quickly. in the end you can really say it was a great game
can you fire over/through these walls? because then you could use mortars or ships couldnt you? like normal walls, actually i suppose that would make you stay away from the walls.
When the map was first released yes but now its impossible to pass the wall or fire through and/or over it.
Rushing is a normal part of the game. If you're still learning, you can set up a friendly match. However, if you go up against someone random, you have to expect anything. (Rush > Boom > Turtle > Rush) If he beats you in the first 15 mins, he could beat you in 40 mins. Isn't it better to get a game done faster if you're just going to lose?
That said, there are some games that give you strong enough defenses at start to discourage rushes. Instead of a great wall that disappears after some time, I suggest just playing a map with numerous towers surrounding your base. They'll be easy to take out later on, but they'll significantly hurt a rush.
My style in Age Of Empire IS rusher. If you don't rush, learn how to not be rush.
But when you rush, your base is not attacked. So you can make a base and prepare your self for a future attack.
If your style is more leisurely or you just like to plan before making a move, consider turn-based strategy games. Civ4 is excellent and HoMM 3 is one of my favorites.
thannnnnnnnnnnxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx a lot for that topic
Just so you know, turtling in AOE3 is NOT recommended. There are some RTS games that allow you to turtle effectively, but AOE3 is not one of them. This is a common mistake by new players.
Booming can be done with proper useage of cards, but certainly rushing is the most common tactic. You typically want to hit early in any RTS. Get some military out quick, but don't leave them standing around. Go raid or harass. Keep the enemy on the defensive while you build and upgrade.
I think no rush games are sooo boring! Half the point of AoE3 is to attack!
