Hi, I've recently bought the second expansion, The Asian Dynasties and after playing online on vanilla for a long time previously, where there always seemed to loads of games hosted, and I could get a game instantly, I have noticed that this has changed since I got the expansion. Quick game turns up nothing, and I find it really hard to get a game. Any ideas why this is? Is it something to do with not having TWC?

Yes, if you do not have TWC, you won't see the majority of the games hosted which use TWC and TAD. TAD with TWC has fewer games than vanilla, but still has a fairly large amount.

Yes you do. Can't really expect people to have all skipped the first expansion pack and just bought the second one just because you did.

DuolcKrad, why would more people play AOE3 vanilla than AOE3 fully expanded? That doesn't seem logical.

I'm not saying you're wrong, I'm just wondering why people would not get the expansions.

balance on TAD without the FP is bull.

Also, TAD costs money, so why waste money on a less balanced game?!

I just kick japs :P

In the manual it says I should still be able to play with people who have TWC - just not play as any of those civs.

You can host your own game, and people with or without TWC content can join (and they will not be able to use any of the native civs). But you can't even see or join any games with TWC content enabled (which is most of them). That's why it seems sparse online.

You have three choices at this point. Either buy TWC and get the content that lets you see the majority of games on the TAD server; or play on Vanilla server only and forget about TAD; or host your own TWC-disabled game on the TAD server and hope for the best.

no, CL, it was because they wanted you to go back to vanilla.

even with the TWC you don't get that much games...usually at 12:00 GMT there's less than 20 games and have of them are treaty/FP
