This is a fact, know one likes them. Could somebody explain.

I am somehow less interested in the weight and convolutions of Einstein's brain than in the near certainty that people of equal talent have lived and died in cotton fields and sweatshops.

because 50% cant speak english
because 90% doesnt want to speak english
because 95% only speak french when there is someone else who is french

So it is because they dont speak english

btw arnitald we (the dutch) will also vote against, and do you hate us now :P

1. It isn't because they don't speak English.
2. Close this idiotic thread.

But first I'd like to say that it isn't know, but no. Hope that helps you in the future.

Anyway, who said NOBODY likes the French?! And how should they even know?! They haven't played with it...

Search google for french military victories and use i'm feeling lucky.
Another reason is they are a real stopper in the UN which doesn't make U.S. happy after saving their rears in WW2.

Yet many Americans forget the French saved their rears in the American Revolution.

I don't hate the French, I will play as them for sure. This thread is full of generalizations.

    'The french aren't a friendly people, especially to english speaking foreigners.'

    I have French family, and they do it on purpose, it's hilarious! Lots of French people don't like non French- speakers in my experience.

    When I play with french ppl and I tell them I don't speak french, they say: "ok, np", but they just keep going on in french, even about the game (what they plan to do etc). Not very nice imo.
    I know not every frenchman is like this, but a lot are

    French-speaking-canadians are a lot more social btw

    I speak french i dont have problem with them. When i was in Paris, actually several frenchmen helped get around and they spoke english. it is true though that they r xenophobic. And they have too big pride. Actually their last battle victory was during Napoleon. in 1871 the germans humiliated them at Sedan. And it was thatnks to the brits and US troops who saved them during WW1 and WW2.
    In the past months there is a military conflict in the republic of Ivory Coast (Cote d'Ivoire)and the french army with all those new techs tanks, planes, etc. cant beat the africans armed only with the supreme Avtomat Kalashnikov (AK).
    Actually i prefer the french cuisine than the brittish or american one. I especially like their cheese.
    They have well over 300 kinds of it!

    Same here, i speak french and go to a french school. But i'm not just talking about the real french, i'm talking abaut the french in AoE. Most people i know either have never played as them or hate them but for no reason.

    I am somehow less interested in the weight and convolutions of Einstein's brain than in the near certainty that people of equal talent have lived and died in cotton fields and sweatshops.

    I don't think this is connected to AoE3 anymore in anyway. If you want to know why people don't like the AoK Frech Civ, AoKH might give a better answer.
