Both games were 2v2.

Now I remember why I LIKE having players rated even if I think it also makes it harder to find games. The first game I played was random and my teammate ended up not being very good. He never built more than 18 settlers even though the game went over 20:00. Playing as Sioux I took down BOTH of my opponent's town centers. Unfortunately, the first was just able to get his War Chief away and the second had hit Fortress just before I got to his town. In the end we lost.

Sioux war club rush is about as basic as it gets but it's very easy to carry out at low civ levels against opponents who are not very good.

So are you trying to say that this rush is/might be OP or just that it is too good for how easy it is?

It's too early to make any kind of OP claims. I just expect it to be a common strat early on.

I noticed 1 thing that I didnt like about TWC, and it has to do with finding a damn game. Why would they start your rank over in TWC? I will get slaugtered for sure playing someone who is better than a damn conscript! Does this mean, I currently have to get my rank up to where it is in regular AOE3? That is complete BS! Oh yeah, the number of games you can find are crappy! Ended up going back to aoe3 server to play with more people.

That's because not many people have it.

TWC uses a different Power Rating because it adds new civs and new units. It's a separate game and thus it should have a separate rating.

However, unitl enough people have it and have played enough games, there will be plenty of unbalanced "conscript" match ups early on. The only way you can avoid it is to not play any games if you recognize a name as being one of the AOE3 good players.

Why don't you just judge people by their aoe ranking.

It is my understanding that you can view a person's aoe3 ranking by viewing their home cities and switching over to the aoe3 window.

That will work for browser games but not QS.

yeah, nothing quite as basic as having men with clubs take down a civilization... I haven't played it, but that sounds really, really annoying.
