Ii guys

Im on my way out today to buy a new rts to get my teeth into, im considering aoe3 as ive seen its been selected as an esport, I used to love aom years ago but stopped playing it as much when they released titans cuz at first some atlantian races were bigtime imba, they may have fixed it since but by that time i was probably playing something else. I currently play wc3 and love it that and aom being my favourite games heres what i want from an rts.

single player not important i want lots of players online

i want an auto match service

good community

and most important not futuristic i dont think futuristic settings work well in my opinion it just ends up gun v gun ranged v ranged become to hectic to me.

comments appretiated

also is there stats somewhere for most popular rts online

ps i hate all total war games

thanks

well lets see..

Yes, we have one. It's called quicksearch and it matches you up with a random person also doing quicksearch.

good community

We're a good community, arent we?

Theres also http://www.agecommunity.com/if you'd like that better.

and most important not futuristic i dont think futuristic settings work well in my opinion it just ends up gun v gun ranged v ranged become to hectic to me.

AOE 3 is set from about 1550 to the 1850s. Melee units are still very important, so it won't be gun vs. gun that much at all, really.

In essence, it seems AOE 3 is the perfect game for you, especially since you hate "total war" games.

its actually not random, it picks somebody else doing quick search that is within the parameters you select it to search for.

If you want to see how aoe3 plays, can i recommend you watch one of sephiroth's VODs which are available?

here and here

They show you how the game is played (albeit by an OP player) and the units which are available etc etc.

I need to have micro installed into my brain. I got the basics of macro down, but I can't micro military at all.
