Yep, here I go again.

Well, this one I lost, but it was fun. It was 1v1 on Ozarks, I was Russia opponent was Sioux. We both aged to Colonial around same time. Ironically, we eneded up trying to build fbs int the same spot, and he destroyed mine. Pretty soon he attacked me, the same time I attacked him. I killed of a few villys, but my army was small since my initial fb had been stopped. The Sioux player didn't take down my TC yet. But soon, his next wave took it down. My CM bought me time for my villys to run away.

So I start rebuilding to the south. I get up 3 blockhouses and begin spamming strelets. It was hilarious, you shoulda seen it. This guy goes back to his base after taking my TC. I get strelets coming in at him from all sides, and he never knows where I am going to strike next. Its all hit an run. I constrict his villys into his town, weakening his eco. I snipe at a few villys, then retreat. And the funny thing is I'm attacking from 3 places at once, so he hardly ever caches me. I do this for at least 20 minutes after he took down my TC. He says to me, "You are the most annoying person I have ever played." I just laugh.

Eventually he masses and army large enough to defend and attack my weak rebuild at the same time. I may have lost, but it was great fun, and it was excellent micro practice.

I WANT YOU to post your stories now!! Participate, people!

Getting double-teamed by two Japs in an FFA is hardcore. Fortunately both of them spammed yumi so my lancers tore them apart and I forced one of the players down from highest score to lowest, but...the hatamoto, oh god the hatamoto...

No... The game went OOS before I could build a corral. You can check the stats of the game or something (somehow) but I didn't make a single axe rider. All archers and war clubs.

Well - while I've got an off day I thought I would check out the forums a bit. Good to see things still rolling along here. Here's a real warstory for the thread - straight from Mosul, Iraq.

Last night we were on a mounted patrol through a small neighborhood, when we heard some shots. We go investigate (IE - drive toward the gunfire) and we find an IP (Iraqi Police) shooting at an IED (improvised explosive device). We get on scene and tell him to stop, and we call out our bomb squad. They get there, and blow the IED in place - a propane tank filled with HME. (Home made explosive) Later that night we here a net call on the radio that basically tells us to come back to base. You can read about the reason below -

Here is another good read on the city I'm working in -

well here's war story:

it was 3v3, 3 spanish vs me(japan) and my 2 mates (british and ottoman). We all decided that we would die if they all ff. So we tripled one of them, the ottoman doing a abus rush/boat boom, i did a semi seige rush, and the british did a musk rush and then we discovered that 2 others were rushing. They had this huge base in the middle. My friend got doubled and we fought them off. then we tried booming back with occasional raids and encounters. I then got tripled and what was funny, i already had a rax at the base that me and my friends had tripled. So i had like 3000 something food, 1200 gold. I set all my villies to wood. Got tc and shrines. i aged to industrial. I then build a consulate and with around 1100 export i made 3 samurai, u know those tough strong ones.

after that was amazing. My friends were doing their best to kill the base in the center. What i do, i had a daimo from aging, i made like 15 ashis and upgraded, sent 14 ashis twice, qued alot of villagers, and destroyed two bases. By then, my friends, one whoch was going totally mams and jaegers and the other musksa nd rockets managed to destroy the base because of the distraction i caused. 2 of the enemies revolted and still got pwned. I had like 10 ashis coming out of 2 barracks most of the time and i was making club men from the consulte. It was ownage. GG!

I just played an intense FFA. It lasted an hour and a half.

The map was Lrg Siberia. I was Ottomans (orange), a 2nd lieutenant was Japs (yellow), a 1st lieutenant was Sioux (red), a corp was Germans (blue), another corp was Dutch (teal), and a conscript was Ottos (green).

I started at the bottom-right of the map. I scouted and noticed red to my upper-right and teal to my left. After aging I built a barracks and started to make jans, and later I built a foundry and made some abus. Red rushed blue because blue aged late, and he was done before he could make a single soldier. With red's army elsewhere and teal not seeming like a threat, I aged to Fortress.

Red and yellow began to have a huge war, with green and teal caught in it as well, because they were each next to yellow (so the order from left to bottom to right was green, yellow, teal, me, then red. I later found out that blue had been to the upper-right of green).

Yellow didn't have a hard time fighting red so she attacked green and tore him apart. He was still in the game though, because before she could finish him, red came back and got down her Toshogu Shrine, and soon her Golden Pavilion. Now she was fighting two people at once, and eventually gave up after her Shogunate went down as well.

Meanwhile, I had aged to Industrial and had a stable. I saw two of teals' falconets near my town without an escort, so I attacked them, which provoked teal. He attacked with skirms, ruyters, and more falcs. My abus shot down his poorly-microed skirms and my hussars easily went around and got his falcs, while my jans caught his ruyters in melee. Instead of pressing onto his town, I aged to Imperial to catch up to red, who was building up his eco.

Once reaching Imperial, I upgraded my units and built a capitol, which gave a big boost to my eco. But before I could pull ahead of red, teal came with an unreasonable amount of field guns (atleast 15) and very few ruyters. My remaining abus shot down his ruyters while I spammed gardeners to take care of the field guns. Then, I got spies with some left over gold.

Red had no army and was open to attack, but teal was more of an immediate threat. I looked at his town and noticed that he already had more units. What did he have? 30 field guns. I laughed in my head as he sent them over to green and attacked, leaving himself open. The second I touched his unupgraded walls he resigned.

Now red claimed that he had to go. I had already pulled ahead of him anyway, and he had no army at the moment. That left only green, so was still injured by yellow's attack and a little by teals' cannon spam, so he was only in Industrial and with a small army. I shipped spahi and mamelukes and stocked up on grenades, then went in for the kill.

I've got your back, when are you on? (You're already on my list )

edit: Not a very interesting war story, but just an example of the kinds of tardery we put up with on ESO from time to time:

Treaty 20 FFA on Yucatan last week. 12 minutes (!) into treaty one of the players says "No warships guys"

Uh, too late. Firstly the game was not lagging appreciably. Secondly, four other players were already on the water fishbooming.

If you don't want to play in the water, do:
  • avoid games where water maps are a possibility
  • ask the host to have a specific maptype excluded to cut down lag
  • appeal to players to mutually have a NWS game at the beginning
  • host your own ffa on a land map.

    don't:
  • wait until the game is half over to say "No Warships Plz"
  • threaten to droptrick bc of warships
  • call people cheaters or abuse them otherwise for using ships in a normal game

    As a rule, I never host games with made-up restrictions (besides treaty time LOL). Usually, all is fair in love and war. If you ask nicely, I will switch maptypes so everyone can play a fair game without lag. Even if the game has already started, if you ask right at the start (before ppl commit to decks/strats) and other players are OK with it, we will have a NWS game. If you wait until everyone else is already fishbooming and then declare NWS, you gonna get raped.

    And that's pretty much what happened.

    i just played one of those games that after it you feel so good about yourself.

    This is how it goe

    Map yukon

    version TWC

    Type 1v1

    i was aztec my opponent was ottoman.

    it starts bad for me first my FB gets burnt and i have no military. i send 10+9 mace cards. If the otto had been aggressive i would be minced meat. luckily he is building up. i get a defensive war hut up and start getting all unit types. my reason for this was cause i thought if he goes and gets some hussar I'l need pumas and if he goes abus I'l need coyotes and of-course mace for for jans. we have a few skirmishes life goes on. My score is still lacking but I'm gradually getting closer. he has gone for hussar jan mix my pumas luckily pay of.

    i go to fortress and my resources aren't looking good. i had little gold and mostly food so i start to pump out jags. his army comes marching in ITS BIG a lot of jans and a gd amount of hussars fortunately the jags and some mace behind are mincing up the hussars and so he is forced to retreat. next i get some coyotes and i go raiding.

    Then worst-case scenario happens. My economy was booming now and so i had sent i big group of villages out to hunt a distant from my Tc. I was just building two warhuts to protect them when 20 hussars came skipping through and ate nearly 20 vills and my warhuts.

    I thought fine if this lasts much longer im screwed so lets go on the attack. with my army of jaguars (as this is all my resources can support) i send them to his FB. my jags turn into monsters and wipe out everything they mince his jans they eat his hussars and burn his buildings. my jags just go through to wipe out everything. If he had properly microed his jans they wouldn't have been so effective but once those jags reach there enemy they are powerhouses. He could not stop them and so i won.

    The brilliant thing was i was on the losing but came back to win it. The leason is this IF HE IS NOT MICROING, USE JAGS THEY ARE OP


    ps every time i have said jags i am talking about the Jaguar Prowl Knight.

    Jags are surprisingly good for a "I have no gold" advanced Native unit. Ottos are probably the only civ I would send a mono-army of Jags against though.

    Here was a 1v1 unrated I did that was very fun( cos i won)
    Me as Ports and enemy as French.
    I do a standard 17 vil ageup minus 3 (the no vil cards for Ports.)
    I age with the 400 wood and get 2 barracks. His explorer party is killed when i send the 8 xbows from HC. I play a bit of mental warfare with him. I send away the 8 xbows with the other mixed army of infantry to the side of map, hiding. He FF's and i make 8 xbows so he will think they are the same ones. He hits fortress. He sends a dozen cav(hussar and cuir) to my base. I instantly send my army into his base. I take down his base and he resists with cav but i get my pikes to settle all that. Then he has no base, I still have my base because of having 2 TC's. Then he says the famous 2 letter word:
    gg
    very fun game that was.
