I thought I'd get your attention with the subject line. Yuck yuck.

I like to put myself in difficult scenarios when I play the computer, and I've think I've tried just about every kind of scenario there is so I thought I pose the question.

How do you set up your comp stomps? Anyone have any unique scenarios to share?

On single player I'm messing around with treaty against 2 experts atm. I should move on to 3 but last time I tried 3 they hurt me...

On non-treaty I can beat the expert ai 1vs1 as portugal about 50% of the time. I can't beat the Dutch, ever...

I remember Dutch are very good, When I play as the Chinese and destroy most of Dutch, They rebuild back almost everything in like 10 minutes.

I use the new ai (someone uploaded), put it at around +30% expert and have a decent game. It usually comes with one hell of a rush around 6 min. Mostly to try build orders and unit combos.

Nice title. Not sure how to answer this one, but I think I'll stick with "no" for now.

Hey Ekanta, what new ai? Got anymore information on that? I just recently returned to aoe3 and have not heard of it.

The current ai is plain dumb.

When I play SP I usually play on hard (I don't like the idea of a "cheating" AI), either large FFA games or against multiple opponents. This gives me fun, challenging games I still usually win.

I don't play maps like Carribean as the AI cannot handle those. I don't use walls either, and no specific anti-AI tricks like sniping villagers.

And of course, I use the Draugur AI. It's debatable whether it's really stronger, but it's definitely more interesting to play against.

I consider SP a completely different game with its very own challenges. I doubt that even the greatest human AoE3 addict can beat the expert AI one on seven with maximum handicap on a land map.

I fight 3 hards or 1 expert. 2 experts in supremacy is unbeatable unless youyr Grunt, and even then...

With the hards you rush one, then the next and always raid their eco with hussars/uhlans/spare cav. I only wi these games 40% of the time though.

There is a joke I'm missing here.So I'm going to swing it.

Yes I play with myself a lot.It much more productive then playing with somebody else since you can stop whenever you want.I do it to find out how long it takes to do different stuff.

Like finding out how long it takes to build a tp with burgenmiester and how long normally.

Playing with yourself means you can do something three times in a row and get the mead times to finish.Then when Im ready I try a unrated with a clanmate then if that is successful I try it with a random person on QS.

I also play v 3 hard (teamed) or 1 expert (I don't play treaty) to practice a strat. Trick to playing three hards is to rush one, then raid the other two, while booming at home. I win probably 80% of those. Against 1 expert I win. Haven't tried the Draugur AI, but now that I've been reminded I shall

That is one creative title. I'm going to try what Humility
did his post.

Yes playing with yourself can be very fun. When you want to try something new or don't got somebody to play with then you have no choice but play with yourself. When you finally master it then you can go find somebody and show them how good you are. ( ok now I'm gross out)

Let me put these into more aoe way.

Yes playing in single player can be very fun. When you want to try a new civil, plans, or don't got somebody to challange then you can always play against bots. When you finally master your civil or plans then you can use it against other players to see how it work against the human mind.

both of the paragarphs are game related.

The only way I play is either SP, or over LAN. I use the Draugur AI and love it.

I don't play online games. I think ES fails to recognize some of its players don't play online, and they shirk out on the AI as a result.
