I hope we don't have to find every last person to get a victory like in Age of Empires II. This would suck because games would last FOREVER. Punks/jerks would hide their villagers just to make you waste time for their loss.

I agree(I'm aware there are spies, but there are also DM games with a lack of spies, so yea), if they lose all their villagers, or have like, less than 50 in 30 minutes they should probably automaticly lose, except since not everyone isn't that fast it should probably be an amount of villagers required at a certain time that are both chooseable.

At this there should probably be other options similar, like have atleast 1 barracks by 11 minutes.

IMO you should also be able to disable certain techs and save settings as well.

Since we probably wont have the exact same villagers and gather rates ect. these example times and requirements would be fitted to AoE3 rather than AoEII.

If he has only a few villagers left then the spies technology will be cheap enough for you to be able to research it. If he has some kind of base, you should be able to find it using outposts.

I say it should be a ratio, not a set amount. Say if the larger player has a 10:1 Villager ratio. This means for every 20 villagers the Larger player has the smaller player has 1... so for 100 villagers he has 10. It should be an Option, most definetly...

How about when they lose all their TC's, a three minute count down starts, in which is they don't build a new TC, they lose. Like in AoM.

Sorry sir, but the definition of a Hack is a program used to gain illegal access to some features that were not intended to be used. How can something implemented by the designers be something that is a feature not inteded to be used?

Besides, the only time I use Spies is when the game is already over and I'm just wrapping up. The loser on the other team is too stubborn to see there is NO WAY he can come back...

It is annoying, maybe there is a King or leader. If he dies, you win.
Or, you could reaserch [spies/treason] and see all the enemies.

oh yeah. maybe it should only be available in the last 3 minutes or when you get all his town centers or when you get all his buildings.

but it definately shouldn't be available at any time.

that's going to suck especially in 4v4 where everyone gives one person all the money and they research the thing and everyone can see everything.

Actually, when you have spies, only you can see everyone. Even if you have cartography.

Even if it applied to your whole team, 20-60K of gold for spies isn't worth it. Having three people giving a fourth player all of their gold would basically kill them, as they'd probably have no resources left. Being able to see what your enemy is doing is pretty pointless if you've got no resources.

The only time I have ever seen spies reaserched in a case like this with all players in good shape, etc, is where TOAO_Trix_ did it for a joke on michi. Other than that I have never seen spies used in a "map hack" manner. So dont get all excited.

Dear lord, did I ever hate having to track down villagers and so forth. It was even worse in regicide when you're trying to find one last king.

All you need to do is spread your units out and close in on him. Sooner or later you'll nail the king.
