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 :lol:

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 :lol:

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?

Fucking love AOE2 :wub:

I play, really, just three video games: Borderlands, Minecraft, and AOE2.

I used to be all about the Teutons, but these days, the Mongols and their elite archers have my heart :wub:

Trying several times, get my ass kicked EVERY TIME.

I CAN NOT focus on more things than one at a time :(

I start out perfectly with a a normal build order but once stuff starts happening I'm FUCKING LOST. I can only focus on one thing at a time

If I try to get the correct resources, I forget to make new military units

If somebody is attacking me I almost get a heart attack and wanna rage quit

I can not handle this fucking game or RTS games in general :(

You don't say. :lol:

Kind of an oddball suggestion... but, have you considered making a checklist of all the things you need to prioritize in this game, and maybe taping it to the edge of your screen, or otherwise affixing it somewhere so you can glance at it every once in a while? I'm not nearly in your league here, lol, but I think sometimes it can be really helpful to just have a periodic reminder of all the things you need to routinely check while you're doing something.

Things do get crazy very quickly when someone is micro-invading while you're trying to keep your resources up, and then BAM their full army shows up :lol:

I rarely get time to play, but when I get some regular free time to do so, I'll let you know!

AOE is simply too big and fast a game for something like that. It's pretty much all about map reading and hoping not to get caught when you take risks to get advantages.

And knowing how to effeciently manage both resources and military production.
Which is one too many tasks for me to handle :lol:

If I focus only on resources I can become super rich and have tons of buildings and shit. I guess thats the easy part anyway. So it's not much to brag about :lol:

There's a way to control a single team with two people... I think you just need to make the two players the same color/team, but then you could focus on resources and have a buddy focus on military/nation-building :)

Yeah I know I did with that with a friend once, because he doesn't know anything how the game works. Places miningcamps five miles away from the gold and makes the boar kill his villagers all the time XD oh well I guess I played just as shitty as he did 10+ years ago, and then I started watching Youtube tutorials about build orders last year and improved dramatically. But still not enough to make my brain work faster :(

:lol:

Sometimes I like to set up a game with 7 enemies on Easy mode, and then take my time to slowly swallow them all whole, because sometimes it just feels good :lol:

Now I played a game against somebody who was just above my own skill level. We had some "back and fourth" action going on, he attacked me and I deflected... I attacked him and he deflected... So even tho I got beaten, it doesn't make me feel like a shit person!
Seems like there's some hope. My multitasking was a litttlleee better than yesterday. WOHOO!!!

I played this a lot about 10 years ago, before I had kids. This and Total War were the only games I played. If they were offered on Nintendo Switch I might try and get into them again but not on the pc. My laptop is old as it is and that would be too much for it.
