Cheats

Excerpt from this article:

"So you just finished playing a game, and now you feel like having some fun, maybe stomping some computers into oblivion using... "unconventional methods". You've come to the right place; like most games, Age of Empires II comes with it's own built-in cheats, that allow you to defy logic/gravity and gain some extra loot.

Formations

Excerpt from this article:

"One of the innovations of Age of Empires II was the addition of formations to the Age series, allowing the player to shift the position of their units at will, and group them together so all units go at the speed of the slowest unit (in the original Age of Empires, the units all went at their own speed; the chaos, of course, made it difficult to properly manage units)."

Hundred Years War

Excerpt from this article:

"This is just for the amusement of those who are interested in historical context. It's kind of hard to pick exactly how long the 100 Years War lasted, but one common measure is from 1337 to 1453. Note that there was not continuous fighting throughout the war, which was interrupted by truces, the Black Death, and other events. Several times everyone thought the war was over, then it broke out again."
