I just had my first multiplayer match in YEEAAAARS... It must have been almost 10 years since last time and I quit after 1 match losing against a fucking tower rush.
Anyway, today it was so much fucking fun. I have played against the AI since it came out, and the HD AI is just way too hard.
But now I realize what a difference it makes with human players.
So what happened in this 5 player game?
First off I was very ahead of the others since I had practiced my build orders a bit the last few weeks.
The game host (red) kept saying "blue is scary" (I was blue)
I was always on top... And now interesting things started to happen!
I allied Red, just to show that he shouldn't be afraid. All was good until I started chopping down "his" forest.
He felt betrayed, he couldn't trust me anymore... And it was a "mistake"!!!
So he started opening fire on me, and also allid other players and soon enough EVERYBODY teamed up against me for a fucking mistake
I held up good against even 4 players (some very low level, and one similar to me) attacking me, even tho it was really hectic.
After a while the game just suddenly ended, and then I realized... IT WAS REGICIDE!!! I forgot I had a fucking king to protect
I could probably have come back from the siege if it wasn't for the fact I forgot it was regicide and lost the king.
THIS WAS SO MUCH FFFUUUUUUNNNNNNNNNNNNNN
You never experience this type of drama with the AI, so I'm definitely gonna play AOE2 more online.
Is there anybody else into AOE2 here, and would like to take a match of some sort?
