I have been given AOE3 by a friend, however the cd-key isn't valid for online play.

I played the demo of the Asian Dynasties and I like it, so I'm wondering can I just buy the Asian Dynasties expansion pack and play online?

Thanks.

My aoe3 TAD said you need aoe3 to play it so I think you need aoe3 first then you can use aoe3 TAD. If you don't buy TWC then you won't have the native Americans. But you can play just by aoe3 and aoe3 TAD if you don't want aoe3 TWC

No, you need an AoE3 account first. You need to by AoE3 vanilla

Knowing what experts do doesn't make you one, knowing how they do it does.

can anyone confirm what Toshio said

If it wasn't clear AOE3 is of course already installed, but I can't play online.

There is a one account per cd key rule, so your friend may have created an account on it before giving it to you, so you would need a new original Age Of Empires 3 to create a new online account and I do believe you would need the original game to start an account to update to The Asian Dynasties. Another error is a bad cd key which may work for normal play but not online play so I hope I could help.

Contant your friend and find out the name and password of the online account.

What kilmaim said, or just go out and buy AOE3 Gold edition, that gives you AOE3 vanilla and TWC together for cheaper than either set alone.

I think the Gold edition was recently on sale hereabouts for US$25-30, you should check if that's still true.
