Why is there no longer a history forum?
Is it because no one is interested in history anymore?

After all, this game is supposed to be (mostly) historical...

It is supposed to be, but most certainly isn't.

Pseudo-historical discussion regarding AOE has been a HG-trademark ever since Age of Empires Heaven... No real reason to shut the history section down imho.

Nope, it's still here

Although most people prefer to air their minor history rants here in GD.

Thanks, As_Saffah, but it seems every discussion in that history forum was closed about three years ago.

Guilty as charged, Droideka. I was posting here as the history forum appeared to have died a less than honorable death about three years ago. If I posted there, would anyone ever see them? Since I am somewhat of a teacher, I have this weird idea that if I post something where it can be seen, perhaps one person might learn something from it, and be thereby benefited.

Off topic posts can lead to extremely interesting discussions. The big problem is that there's the kilovstapo here.

It is Dudley Do-Right, Snidley Whiplash, and Nell from the old Rocky and Bullwinkle cartoon show. What Kivlov is saying in a roundabout way is that his Great White North is Canada. Personally, aside from Rocky and Bullwinkle's adventures, I like Mr. Peabody and his boy Sherman the best. Fractured Fairy Tales was pretty good too.

That show was awesome. Pretty funny that most of these kids have never even heard of or seen it. Now that's some history worth learning! Incog, Dudley (the guy in red) was a bumbling, but well-meaning mountie on the Canadian frontier. A guy who always got his man (ban?) even if his methods were a little bass-ackwards.

After all, this game is supposed to be (mostly) historical...
Actually, it is not too bad when it comes to the European civilizations with respect to units and civilization tendencies. There are some odd ones, and some that are not correctly rated for combat, but those can be fixed. At least it does not give the Aztecs, Iroquois, and Sioux the same navies as the Europeans, like Rise of Nations or Civilization 3, and the Asian nations are not that bad. Overpowered, yes, but I can understand why that happened, having worked with board and miniature war game development.

Putting it another way, if it were not sufficiently close to historical, I would not be playing it and investing so much time trying to make it more historically accurate. One of the best features of the game is that an editor is available for the Mac OS, and it is for the most part, adequate for the changes that I wish to make. Are there things that I would have liked to see done differently, or civilizations that I would have liked to see added, of course. But I still enjoy the game, and as far as I am concerned, that is what really matters.

we certainly need a Hob-Nob Forum, for all the upper class people (like my very good self) to have gentlemanly discussions about things in the realm of AOE3.
