Dutch people don't eat food, wood, or even gold. The reason they cost gold is so it may pay for their supple amounts of marijuana, that is why only half of the hundred ordered to go over ever made it to the New World to boost someone's economy.

Running joke about how Dutch may have illegalized marijuana but tolerate it in moderated quantities.

To make sure I squeeze a fact into everything I say in this thread:

-A barracks entrance can be blocked entirely by another building and have no other doors on the other sides but soldiers will still be able to pop out.

-Horsemen with lances do not charge their enemy and pierce them, but gallop up to the point-blank range of their enemy and give light jabs at him while the horse just stares.

-Being named Suvorov, Caesar, Napoleon, or General Patton didn't mean shit. If your name was iamgrunt or _H20, America, Asia, and both of its inhabitants become your female dogs.

Old-Style Chinese Kung Fu can do more damage than firearms and early artillery.

When surrounded and low on stamina, do a round house kick to defeat your enemies.

The Chinese in TAD are actually full of crap, they are just like the People's Republic of China.

The Porcelain Tower, considered a beautifully extravagant work of Chinese architecture, is secretly eye candy with an underground factory that produces food, gold, and lumber.

The Confucian Academy, meant to house China's most talented students in learning, is just a sweat shop meant to produce volatile fireworks used in war.

The White Pagoda, a Buddhist relic, is now a Buddhist steroid producer upon completion.

The Summer Palace, a historically signifigant summer home of the emperor, is, in reality, a brainwashing facility that lures in unaware tourists and plucky Chinese boys into the Army without even paying them.

Lastly, The Temple of Heaven, meant to be the place where the Emperor of China makes an offering to the Gods, is really a chemical experiments facility, designed to disable pain and heal wounds upon all Chinese military personnel on the field (also, the fact that villagers are produced upon its construction implies that it is a Hong Kong whorehouse)

When the founding fathers weren't busy slaughtering each other on the battlefield, they might send out a German, an Italian, and a couple of other guys to go and kill the entire Russian army.

Or they might choose to be sadistic bast***s and send an explorer out on a ship all by his lonesome and make him not only build the town center himself, but also gather all of the wood by himself WITHOUT ANY HELP AT ALL!

It is possible to have Asians, Native Americans, and Europeans all in the same region of the world at the same time (and this was before the advent of electricity!).

Time Lords don't get TARDISes.

PINGAS will not assure victory.

In fact, Lazer bears and super huari strongholds will not assure victory.

The truth about Indian wonders

The Agra Fort is a misnomer. It can actually be built anywhere.

The Charminar Gate is not, in fact, squeezable. But it is the home of the Platonic ideals of all military units available to India.

The Karni Mata was originally designed as a big, elongated Habitrail for the sacred rats who live there. But common sense won out, and they built it exactly the size of one rice paddy, so you can make a nice 3x3 square of paddies with the wonder in the middle.

The Tower of Victory is also a misnomer. But it sounds a lot better than some of the other names people use for it.

The Taj Mahal used to be a mausoleum, but was converted into a canteen and burlesque show for the troops, providing both sides of the battle with about 12 seconds of refreshment and entertainment.

DX Saffah you copycat!

Also,
-Aztec couriers often were not treated very kindly by the Spanish considering the nature of the former's civilization, so the leader of the Aztecs demanded that instead of peace and messanging being the trade of the scouts, that mastering Native American UFC boxing and punching the De La Hoya s*** out of the Spaniards was the preferred solution.

Let's make it a hat trick with Japanese wonders and the dark secrets lying behind them:

1: The Buddha is a spy. And rather than promoting peace and meditation, he sends naginata cavalry.
2: The Torii Gates don't actually need to go in front of a shrine or signify any enterance into a sacred space; they're just pretty gates. AND they inspire the Emperor to offer you more units, resources, and/or technologies faster.
3: The Golden Pavillion is a Zen school of armour, cannon, and weapon improvements.
4: The Toshogu Shrine is just a massive indoor farm (or forest or mine depending on the owner's preference). Regular shrines, in comparison, are miraculous in that not only can they produce a small garden/forest/mine but also hold 10 people in them!
5: The Shogunate is actually a building, and not a governmental force. And instead of ruling over all of Japan (what we call an instant WIN), it basically reduces the food and payment soldiers recieve and acts as a huge house and resurrection center for daimyo(s). And we thought the EMPEROR recieved the biggest palace in Japan!

-Louis XIV had a different reason for his death. He one day buggered a British doctor and read into the future through a phonebooth only to find a thousand fact forum sheet that wasn't updated frequently anymore. His grief at this sight drove him to instigate his own beheading.

1) every civ has found more than a million battle
2) the decisive factor in a war is their commander.
3) vills seem to gather things time and again.
4) the vill hand attack is stronger than the blunderbuss
5) a vill can destroy a canon with hand attack. but not strelets with big spear like things.
6)rusian people have sex more than other civs
7)the world is limited by a few civs
8)settlers look the same(i wonder whether they have cloning machines in tc)
9)mortars cant fire upon people.
10)every now and then, the world might stop due to a phenomenon called "LAG"

I no longer play aoe3 actively. In fact, I no longer play any video game. That's how lame I've become.

One thing that still bothers me is that Russia has royal guard grenadiers instead of royal guard cossacks.

At least they got the Tartar Loyalists right.


I have a hard time believing that a mighty Cossack would lose 1v1 to most Euro civ's Hussars.



Also, is there a reason why Kalmucks are silent? Or is just my game copy?
