For my 500th post, I decided to post this sticky for forumers with very quick AOE3 questions that they'd almost be ashamed to post as threads. Anyone able to answer a question, please do so. Example:


Forumer 1: What do TAD and AFAIK mean?

Forumer 2: The Asian Dynasties (AOE3 Expansion pack) and As Far As I Know.


Please post tech help questions and so on in the appropriate forums first but if you get no response feel free to ask them here.

Giskard: BrianManahan = Tsar_Ivan_VII? Discuss.
Giskard: BrianManahan = Tsar_Ivan_VII. It's no longer a question.
Giskard: Isn't BrianManahan liable to be banned anyway for being the smurf of a banned forumer (Tsar_Ivan_VII)?
BrianManahan: I'm not sure who that is, Giskard, but I see what you is trying to do. I don't smurf >:O

(One day later) Moderator Announcements: Tsar_Ivan_VII / BrianManahan Banned Permanently - IP Match

-How (in what situation) do you use the attack move
Use it with hand cav. Without attack move they have simply too much pathing issues.

Only use it with ranged infantry if there are really a lot of them. With attack move they tend to move forward too much, they don't shoot from max range. And sometimes with lag they just keep moving forward without shooting. With small groups it's just better to focus fire and drag small boxes to spread the fire.

-How do you create a small box (if I put my army on defense the box is quite big)
Take 49 (or less) hand cavalry (like hussars), and then one ranged cavalry unit (like a dragoon), and put them both on the Box formation. Select them all and move them; this should make one small box.

I'm not sure if the same applies to Hand & Ranged infantry.

Put both the hand, and the range calv units in Defense mode.

You get a large box when either you forgot to add 1 range calv unit to the group, or you forgot to set the 1 range unit into defense mode.

Or should you then take less horses ?

I've never seen anything quite like that. Try it with a European civilization. Cuirs & a Dragoon seem to get as small as it gets.

I'll edit in a pic.

EDIT:
Huh. I was able to do it with both Cuirs/Goon and Naginta/Yabusame.

Rofl at those pictures, when would you ever have 49 curries? =D

The only time I've ever had that many is when the game is in the bag so I delete cdbs to make more

For each 10 levels you grow in your HC level (10, 20, 30, 40, 50) you can add a new card. So if you are level 50 you can have a 25 card deck.

HM=Halfmap. Used in treaty, it means that you aren't allowed to go to the other side of the map in the first 40 minutes.

If there is some forum where this is posted, I would greatly appreciate it. thanks.

JUST WANT GENERAL AGREEMENT TO HELP MY NOOB FRIENDS OUT
they think a rush is any attack under 15 min
in 1v1 with noob friend I actually semi FFed with Dutch at 9 min, sent a scout of 5 skirms nd destroyed his army of 10 muskets (it was all he had)

Ive told them a rush is between 5-6min but they wont believe me

Yes, a rush comes by at least six minutes if the rusher is good enough
Take me for example

Iro vs Iro in my experience usually turns out to be BB rush versus BB rush.
Check this out for a nice guide to the Iroquois:
