I'm hearing a lot of people say that the pop limit is small and so army numbers are not so big.

...Well I really don't understand why people think that. Yesterday I had an army where I could click and drag as much as I could, 3 times over. And I hadn't even reached 150 pop yet. Most soldiers take only 1 pop slot, ships don't take any, and natives don't take any. Quite frankly, if you reached the 200 pop limit you could still build maybe 50 more men (natives, ships).

In fact if you have huge armies it becomes a lot harder to control. Not everyone can be bothered to micromanage a load of troops.

Only n00bs have problems with the pop limit because they choose the easy AI and then mass an entire army at around 1:54 hours and then attack...

i've been able to kill the hard ai under 13 minutes now with spaniards. this is at about 50-70 pop usually comprised of a lot of infantry units from shipments/indians and a later barracks build.

When I was young, playing the originals of AoE, I would mass guys until i got my pop limit then attack. Obviously now im a lot smarter and know how to play more effectivly. I hardly ever reach the pop limit and I still have massive armies when I attack. 5 units from this building, 5 from here, 5 more from this one, 5 here, 5 there. It comes out to a large force quickly so I could easily keep up heavy assults at a constant pace. I think I reached my pop limit one game, and I reached it twice in that game. Only reason was because I played on very hard and was getting creamed as it was my second time playing, and I turtle boomed while slowly building an army inside my base that was protected by my other soldiers and defences. I reached my pop limit only when I reached the imperial age after a nice boom, and re-ordered all unit shipments. By that time I had pushed them back, out of my base, into thier base where I held an assult for about 5 mins before breaking through and then massacuring them.

My funnest game yet. And it was sweeeettttttt.

Its really easy to get huge armies.....5 from here, five from here, five from here, couple cannons, couple ships, play a few cards, and BAM! ready to attack 25 minutes into the game. Actually, I found it a little easy, though I havent tried expert yet.

I'm not as dumb as you look
