    If you agree with these main motives then SIGN UP:

    1) I LOVE AOKH! IT IS BY FAR THE MOST FUN AGE OF EMPIRES COMMUNITY! Not to mention better than any other online game...right?

    2) I'm getting Fiber Optics tomorrow and I'm itching to test it out!

    3) My girlfriend wants me to go for a meal with her parents but I love AOK more and is a decent excuse to get out of it.

    So all you peoples of AoKH, who's with us? Put down your Xbox controllers, TV Remotes, and Knitting Materials, pick up your swords and come and fight for GLORRYRYYYAARRAAAAA*cough**hack**cough**phlegm*.

    I probably won't be there until 2-3 hours after it starts. Someone make sure to hold the fort while I'm away.

    Thanks Dukla for the game.

    After playing that battle with you, now I learned the value of husbandry, and another of Teuton's weaknesses. Your plumed archers hit&run'd my knights to bloody pulp. If I had husbandry, things would have turned out very differently.

    Teutons have elite skirmishers. Since your enemy is Mayans, you could have expected him to train archers or eagle warriors. Knights, elite skirms, and maybe a few hand cannoneers or champions mixed in would probably beat an eagle warrior/plumed archer army.

    Don't forget siege onagers and bombard towers.

    With all blacksmith upgrades, paladins have 7 pierce armor, while plumed archers have 9 attack. This means 2 damage a hit, and 90 shots to kill. And even without husbandry, paladins have a speed of 1.35 where EPA have a speed of 1.2, so hit and run only delays the inevitable.

    Well, everyone is talking about post-imp teutons.

    This was Teutons in the castle age against Mayans in the Imperial age. Outnumbered and uphill.

    The best option (better than mangonels, etc.) was walling up and not letting plumed archers run through your eco. Which is exactly what your ally had already done. Communication is key.

    Either way though, I freakin' love the Teutons. Who cares if they are slow or cannot raid, they're the only civ in the game with siege onagers AND paladins AND bombard towers AND a strong UU. Ouch. That's four powerful units in their tech tree. This is why I love playing Teutons in long closed or BF games - the possibilities are endless. I love doing early imperial + ETK floods, but if it doesn't work out then I'll try paladin floods.

    I have subpar micro skills and I don't care too much if my unit can't be well micromanaged; as long as they can rip most units into shreds then sign me up.


    Leif - regarding our game: I don't know why, maybe I got a bit too overconfident having 60 paladins on my side, but I forgot to think of the slight possibility that you might have created an alternate route into my base via siege onagers. But now I learned that and now I know what to prepare for next time I'm with an opponent. Thanks.

    Well, Teutons are one of the best BF civs if I'm not mistaken, so that works well for you.

    Oh, and your welcome.

    Perhaps. I haven't used Hamachi before, but we could try it out. A Chivalry forum party sounds fun, but we should probably see how many people are interested. We are due for WW this weekend, but we could delay it a week to figure out what people want to do.

    Well, that's at least two people who can't use Hamachi. I'll try to news the next forum party tomorrow so we can attract some early attention and get more votes about what we want to do.
