NEVER EVER EVER think that hiding your cav archers behind a wall will protect you from a cuirassier attack

When the cuirassier does siege damage it also does splash damage to your units... and the damage doesn't seem to be effected by resists

I am not sure if that is the case but damn... that is retarded (i still won though :P go cav archers 4tw!)

REGULAR siege did that in AoM-but now the French Cuirassier does siege plash too!?! Are you sure that all units attacking don't do a little bit of splash (if doing siege damage)?

o_O That's hilarious.

What do these Cuirassiers have anyway? Plastic explosive hidden in their suits?

They have a sword, and when they slash, 5 more swords split off it, and attack everybody nearby, killing them instantly.
Oh yea, deny them of their steriods and they are a bunch of strelets on cows.

Guys, use your brain if you have one. Ever thought about putting units in staggered mode? It nullifies the area damage.

Woah! Lol I never thought about that, although I think it makes them slower or something. I used to only do that against cannons.

Wow, now that is a HUGE bug. So.. near buildings they play the role of a grenedier as well. Fun.

Why hasn't ES fixed it yet? They could have just lowered Cuiraseer attack by 10% in the previous patch as a temporary quick-fix. I have also been thinking about what should be changed balance-wise in a patch.

The main problem I see is early game indians. Fixing them isn't as easy as most people think. Even without ATP and NAT, indians like Maya are just too strong.

Also, why are black riders far superior to manchu in every aspect? Black riders need their speed knocked down considerably. Why would anyone ever pick say samoria (I can't spell) over black riders?

I've seen black riders at least 50 times and samoria only twice.

Also, I have had someone wall off a forward building of mine with French villies and when my troops were done being made they just dissapeared with no refund because the walls were around them. So stupid.

    Indians = Natives.

    As for balance, I am sure the next patch will address this balance issues.

    Indians, from India, are absent from AOEIII.

    Natives Americans ARE present.

    And perhaps so are "injuns," "redskins," and all those other non-politically-correct-but-are-used-anyway-even-though-some one-will-try-to-sue-the-arse-off-of-you terms.
