Wtf?

1) You completely copied my layout. I guess you can't make up your own. You copied the Natives bit as well the same way as mine...

2) I didn't realise this was a map guide to Saguenay, and posted one...

ha this is like starting to get really old people, there are about 25 or so maps right?

people are just going to continue making these like crazy until they get a title,

this isnt exactly improving your game play as making an original strategy would.


Omg just realized he did this to like point out how easy they are to make, ten minutes for each guide, lets see, in an hour you can be imperial musket

very nice

For your information, mine took more than 10 minutes.

Marneus is infringing copyright.

Mine has a lot more information, and no links to Chinese Pop Songs.

Please choose the guide you want wisely.

Do everyone a favour and calm down? Does it really matter? You can do the other 24 maps if they are that important.

And if it's an insult, I can't wait until you go to a public highschool.

Does it really matter? It would take you like 15-30 min to fix it up to a different map anyway.

And here's your answer... Or one of them:
Alfa Lum cycling team
IBM LUM (licence use management)
Lao Lum, an ethnic group of Laos
WLUM-FM, a radio station in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA
Lum, an unincorporated community in Lapeer County, Michigan
The Scots language term for "chimney"
As a given name or surname, it may be:
Lum, a Chinese Hakka surname (蓝
Lum (surname), an alternative spelling of the Chinese surname Lam (林
Agnes Lum, a Chinese-Hawaiian bikini supermodel from the 1970s
Olivia Lum, founder of Singapore-based water treatment systems company Hyflux
Lum Harris, American baseball player
In fiction and popular culture, it could also be:
Lum, an item from the Rayman games
Lum and Abner, American radio comedy
Lum Invader, a character from Urusei Yatsura (technically Ramu in Japanese)
Lum the Mad, also known as Scott Jennings, MMORPG commentator
Lum the Mad (Greyhawk)
Urusei Yatsura, sometimes referred to as Lum, after a major character

Thank you: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lum

Btw, faces are unintentional.

Guys, I'm gonna tell you something.
All of this Map Guides you are making are useless.
The "Map description" that ES made is most of the times useless. If you could make your own "Map description" that actually contributes to the gameplay, then that may be usefull.
I'll make a short one for Saguenay. (for 1v1)
"Saguenay is a map that got a little water in the north, in the middle of the 2 players. This water got some fish, and it also got lots of whales, for the size of this water. If you can take the water succesfully, it is still a precious resource when fish run out (because of the whales). This map mostr of the times got a TR that goes from East to West, and got 1 TP near each player TC, and one in the middle. Then, the player on the left got 2 Huron Native settlements on his side (on north of his TC, the othe rone waay south), and the player on the right got 2 Cree TP.
This map got plenty of resources apart from the water and TP, you got lots of hunts, mines and trees, and also some sheeps you can gather around the map.
In Saguenay you start with a random economical buildings (here you can say which buidlings you may get)"


You see? wasn't that difficult. Then you can also say what would you try to do depending on the random building you get (like, if you get the Livestock Pen, it may be better to use Explorer to try to look for as more sheep as possible, and then gather treasures, or if you get a market, tyr to get some wood/gold treasure and get hunting dogs early.)

Then you could also say what Strategy would work best on this map and why.
Lets say, you send 2 Caravel early. Now you can not only defend your fishing ships, but you can also bombards the coast, so almost all the land directly by the water is yours, and also the lands in the middle, between the big and the little lake, is yours. So your enemy will have to go the long way south the little lake, if he wants to attack you.

Then, if you are really trying hard to get a usefull guide, you might want to say which starts would work best for each civ in this map.


After all doing all that, you might want to considering adding pictures, eye candy, and some information you copied from others (like Peachrocks Minor Allies guide). And then, guys, you got a good Map Guide.
A Map Guide that actually tells you usefull information of the map, not just useless shit you got from the "loading Map" screen.
That you (specially James) are making so much of this completely useless, 10 min Map guides just to get a special name in an internet forum is pathetic.
If you wanna help the community providing information about the maps, then go ahead and do it, but please put usefull information there. This "just for the name" guides make you look like a no-lifer, that just want an e-name to be happy.

Thanks for reading

I know that Chaplain is just joking in this guide, to show the dumbness of the rest of the guides.
My post was directed to everyone that made/is making/is planning to make a Map Guide.

I think it was a great Idea for the special name thing at the start.

Now it's more of a joke, with people writing semi-useless guides that offer nothing new to the table. Sure they might help very new people, but there is no real work in this. With ES closing and having to make a fan patch, you can tell aoe3 is dying, so guides for new people will become more and more useless.

Go ahead and give people new titles to give them self esteem. We know who the real contributors are by the way they post and the originality of their ideas. Some of the people who have received special names are really deserving of that title, like UGMO. And even if he didn't get a special name, people would still see him as a great content contributor.

That is what separates 'guidemakers'. Good contributors don't need a special name, people just recognize that they are.
