You come on to an SOTL vid it's obviously guna be full of aoe2 fan base, pretty much everyone has played aoe3 on here it's generally regarded as being pretty meh. I enjoyed it a little, didn't stay long and prob won't go back.
  • dominik obora
    dominik obora 11 months ago uhh then why do all the pros play aoe2 instead of aoe3 if its so much better? aoe3 is a good casual rts but aoe2 is better for anyone who likes more skill-based games
  • Vedant Pathare
    Vedant Pathare 11 months ago Harold Saxon Opinions are not wrong. Ever went to school? If you want some facts about why Aoe2 is more popular, I can provide it. But it seems unnecessary as someone else has already given it. Don't be so dogmatic.

  • Bismarcking
    Bismarcking 11 months ago @Harold Saxon the mod doesn't change the CORE MECHANICS of the game, Which is what i don't like, Second of all, I prefer the medieval setting of Aoe2 to the Setting of Aoe3. Also wheres your evidence for saying his opinion is wrong? If i wanted to i could pull it out of my ass and say YOU'RE wrong without listing evidence, Site and link your evidence then we can have a reasonable discussion. and finally, I checked steamcharts, Aoe3 is not as popular as Aoe2. The Data? Here: Aoe2: 9,409 current players, with a 8,341.8 player average in the last 30 days Aoe3: 1.849 current players, with a 1,741.2 player average in the last 30 days this also includes ANY MODS being played on the steam workshop as part of the games players. Unless This Aoe3 mod isn't on the steamworkshop in which case you can't prove that it is higher unless the mod shows it's downloads. in which case link it so i can compare it to steamcharts. GOTCHA SUCKER
  • Luxembourgish Empire
    Luxembourgish Empire 11 months ago (edited) Vedant Pathare firstly your whole comment is wrong. Aoe3 the expansion has become far more popular. And is better. And second opinions can DEFINITELY be wrong. And yours is one of them.

    Luxembourgish Empire 11 months ago Bismarcking Ha ha like I said u haven't got the mode m8.
  • Bismarcking
    Bismarcking 11 months ago @Harold Saxon What the hell??? Aoe2 DEFINITELY has a higher player-base than aoe3. And yes, I have played at least 200 hours in Aoe3, But it's still not as good as aoe2 (not to say that it's bad, Aoe3 is a good game, just not as good as aoe2)
  • Vedant Pathare
    Vedant Pathare 11 months ago Harold Saxon Opinions are opinions. No one is right, no one is wrong. So being dogmatic here wont help you. Sorry to say, but Aoe2 is more famous. It was launched in 1998 and still has many members playing it. Aoe3 was good in the beginning, but as someone said above, Aoe3 just looks like another RTS, which is not the characteristics of Aoe. I can understand you are more of a graphic fan, but don't spread rumours saying Aoe3 is more popular before research. P.S- You can be a nation in Aoe2 mod as well.
  • Bismarcking
    Bismarcking 11 months ago @Day Y. the "twitch gaming crowd" Didn't exist back when they made aoe3.

    Luxembourgish Empire 11 months ago Day Y. What da hell are u on about? Aoe3 is far better I have no idea why you would say that! Have you even tried aoe3? The latest mod is amazing! I can play as new nations such as Brazil And the US! Anyway aoe3 is more popular. So I knew I was right aoe3 is better
  • Day Y.
    Day Y. 11 months ago (edited) Having both AOE2 and AOE3 with at least 50 hours on each, yeah AOE3 is terrible compared to AOE2. You can tell the Devs wanted to appeal more to the twitch gaming crowd with its higher game pace, except that's not what makes AOE unique. As a result AOE3 feels like a generic RTS.

  • Silvia Fox
    Silvia Fox 11 months ago +LuMnOsITi - The Arambai in particular destroy cliffs very quickly... I learned that the hard way putting a castle against the safe side of a cliff to defend a gate in enemy territory... the cliff was destroyed by misses from arambai alone! That in-turn allowed the castle to be taken down fully by rams and allowed my entire defensive system to fall apart piece by piece and luckily my enemy lost too much territory and ran out of wood and gold since I had I think 3 of the relics and I walled off or towered every woodland area for my own uses and eventually I won by owning more of the resources on the map!

  • Kaustubh .Tiwari
    Kaustubh .Tiwari 11 months ago First time playing I read recently about the use of than. The antecedent to than can be many and different variations signify different degrees of emphases. I am a grammar instructor myself so I love these conversations but I also think we are trashing the OP's post by talking grammar on replies to a comment on a video related to gaming.
  • First time playing
    First time playing 11 months ago Kaustubh .Tiwari I am also not a native english speaker tho I would like to believe that I'm decent at it. Just another quick suggestion: Sadly I don't have a very good reasoning for this (one that would involve grammar/syntax or anything of the sort) so I encourage you to find some aditional information about this but it seems to me that your first sentence would sound a lot better if it was written like this: "I agree with your version more than I do with mine." Alternatively you could say : "I agree with your version more." If I were to justify this change I guess I would say it's redundant to add that last part (at least in this context). You could also say that that applies to my first version as well but I feel as though the one I presented sounds better/good enough to not require a change. Does that make sense?
  • Kaustubh .Tiwari
    Kaustubh .Tiwari 11 months ago First time playing I agree with your version more than with my version. The subtlety of the difference between the two expressions is almost beautiful. Thanks for the tip! English is a second language to me. So, I adopt the humbler stance here.
  • Gerard
    Gerard 11 months ago First time playing and Kaustubh .Tiwari I will change it up thanks!
  • Kaustubh .Tiwari
    Kaustubh .Tiwari 11 months ago First time playing Well, low-key is not a verb. It's an adjective. So the sentence should have been "I love how he is always low-key in stating how good the Japanese civ is. " You can drop the 'in', sure, but you cannot miss the 'is'.
  • First time playing
    First time playing 11 months ago Kaustubh .Tiwari that wouldn't make any sense..
  • Kaustubh .Tiwari
    Kaustubh .Tiwari 11 months ago I think you wanted to write 'in' instead of 'is'
  • First time playing
    First time playing 11 months ago Gerard "I love how he is always lowkey stating how good the japanese are." should've been the phrasing.

  • tric onex
    tric onex 8 months ago What I really hated about aoe3 is those cards/decks part and the lack of a campaign featuring historical leaders.
  • Hitler Tacos and Ponies
    Hitler Tacos and Ponies 9 months ago -Walled up is a headache in the woods and defenses in general are garbage, therefore, almost always you can't play like a turtle, just rush and boom. (You can't close the pass only with houses for example) -Where can I see such a clear technological tree in the game? Why can not you play against the same civ? (Options interface) -CARDS and BUILDING DECK to save the world? YuGiOh!!! -Age politicians (choose between Trump or Hillary, for what?) That seems more Age Of Mythology style to me. -Balanced gameplay. Those homeless Indians that I found against who have bonuses? -For the number of units the wars seemed guerrillas. -When this game came out, many kept playing Rise Of Nations. -I think that middle age has more magic than the age of enlightenment.
  • Zachriel
    Zachriel 11 months ago schmohawk for me aoe 3 isn't really balance as aoe 2. Aoe 2 has so much different civilisations and units along with bonuses whereas aoe 3 really is just about the shipment system and weak civ bonuses. It is still a good game I played but as time goes by the gameplay becomes..... dull.
  • schmohawk
    schmohawk 11 months ago Aoe 3 is much more balanced and competitive than aoe 2. That's why Aoe 2 1v1 is all mirror matches but not so in Aoe 3. People hate the card system, but just think of it as another resource that adds more dynamic gameplay. Aoe 2 is great for its time. The reason why it's far more popular is because when Aoe 3 was released, most people worldwide still had potato computers so never had a chance to really get into it. Aoe 2 will run on anything though and so was widely adopted.
  • dominik obora
    dominik obora 11 months ago its not hated its just watered down , they designed aoe3 focused more on appealing to new players and casuals
  • LuMnOsITi
    LuMnOsITi 11 months ago Because people actually hate guns and love bows and arrows, and aoe2 mostly keeps away from guns, whereas aoe3 has you waiting for musketeers to slowly reload
  • Satyaki Sil
    Satyaki Sil 11 months ago I don't think he should focus much on Aoe3 at all. Once he actively states about Aoe3, more people are gonna tell him to play it. And as soon as he starts playing it and gets a grip, people will force him to research on its gameplay. In the end, that would put way too much stress on him. He has done the right thing by not streaming, and I believe that not getting involved in Aoe3 would also be the right thing.
  • Vosloff
    Vosloff 11 months ago I liked aoe3. But there are certain aspects of the game that I dislike. -game only focused to America, as opposed to both the Old World and New World -frikin' build limits!!! I can only build 7 towers. WTF!!!!!!!!!! -Can't fight similar civs. No french vs french, etc. -need moar civs
  • Shah IV
    Shah IV 11 months ago Its not exactly hated, but aoe2 has more balanced gameplay (because of constant patches fixing it) and nothing is op. Aoe1 isn't as good because yamato and assyrian civ is op. The game has enough variety to keep experts doing something else but not the general public. In aoe3 the field gun + dragoon combo is op and defenses are never good enough against anything. Basically it comes down to aoe2 having the most balanced gameplay. I probably should put age of mythology somewhere here and the only thing about that game to mention is that it doesn't have enough variety in terms of units and strategies. Also small things like not being able to choose what of units to upgrade (similar stuff upgrade together) and sub par updates and patches. I know you asked only about aoe3 but everyone can't help but compare them as they have the same name. And for the devs the only thing that matters is that aoe2 is the only game that has a strong playerbase. Sorry about the long post, I'll be grateful if u take ur time to read it :) Also op means overpowered just in case there's someone who doesn't know.
  • Lady Anariel Solrock but fire type
    Lady Anariel Solrock but fire type 11 months ago It's mostly like any other series, nostalgia is one of the strongest things in the hearts of gamers. That said, I think Spirit either plays it, or used to, and also said that he'll maintain this channel aoe2-only. That's the main reason you don't see much aoe 1 & 3 here.
  • Mr.Halogames
    Mr.Halogames 11 months ago My problems with 3 are: -No Eu maps as mentioned before -Figting with guns feels like tickling enemy with wet tissues. -Cheating AI -Dumb AI -Cards for shipments and upgrades Pros: +Cannons feel good +Very different nations in terms of gameplay +The era it is set in
  • Leonardo Eras
    Leonardo Eras 11 months ago Some things I didn't like about aoe3: - No European nor African maps or campaigns (aoe2 world seems bigger in comparison, what happened to the thirty years war, the Napoleonic wars, Prussian wars, etc (this was included in Napoleonic Era mod though) ) - Military units created in batches while villagers won't (unless you play with Russia) - The maps feel small in comparaison to aoe2 - While water combat looks amazing, you cannot make tons of ships (amazing armada of 10 ships isn't amazing) - In general building limits, cannot make a lot of outposts, etc
  • Uzii
    Uzii 11 months ago Mr.Halogames 3 plays out really differently. It's hard to compare Sword+Bow+Catapult gameplay with a Musketeer+Skirmisher+Cannon gameplay. It comes down to personal preference. I prefer Guns, but I can see why many people don't.
  • Blood Panthera
    Blood Panthera 11 months ago Mr.Halogames It's not that AOE 3 is hated, it's just not as loved as AOE 2. Nowadays the developers only focus on 2 releasing new stuff and patching making it even better and therefore bringing more people to it, while 3 is just slowly rotting away.

  • Geo Pol
    Geo Pol 8 months ago @TheWitchking123 The heart of AOE hasn't been medieval. AOE1 is about the classical age, AOE2 is about the medieval age, so it made sense for the series to move ahead in time for AOE3 as it has done before. I would say its there is no deeper reason than that AOE2 is just a better game than AOE3 is.
  • Anirudh Viswanathan
    Anirudh Viswanathan 11 months ago Also, range units have a stupidly long reload time, around 3-4 seconds in real time. I tried to micro longbowmen as British, and it seriously wasn't worth it. They just take way too long to reload and they end up getting mobbed by even a very small group of cavalry, if they have more than 100hp.
  • Duilio Murai
    Duilio Murai 11 months ago The "deck" stuff is what killed the multiplayer, it's good for variety, but too hard to master the gameplay.
  • TheWitchking123
    TheWitchking123 11 months ago I agree with the Victorian era thing. The heart and core of AoE has always been on the medieval warfare side of things.. AoE3 personally for me was a good game but was not an AoE game. Was more like a spin off of Total War... Also, lets not forget the fact the game absolutely dropped the balls when it came to the campaign. Instead of revolving around actual historical scenarios like prior titles, it relied on some bland, fictional story which imo was a HUGE waste of potential considering plenty of important historical events and battles took place at the time..

  • machaiping
    machaiping 11 months ago (edited) Speaking of old game; I once played AOE2 during my childhood and always stumped as to why computer keep kicking my ass. It's only now, watching Spirit's videos, that I realized I never kill a single sheep during my short time playing it and it's why I lost. (turning my empire into vegan civilization before it was a thing, I guess?) I think I'll wait for Gaben's New year sale before deciding whether I'll buy this new one though. But maybe because Empire Earth AI leave bad impression on me that make me reluctant despite different developers. (Cheat to the point that turtle and one big attack is the only way to win, harassment is meaningless against them)
  • Booklat1
    Booklat1 11 months ago I've played the age of empire series for like twenty year, having played more then 300 hours in aoe3 this year alone. That being said, I'd still get annihilated if I played aoe2 with this guy. Pros will not necessarily play at 100% all time, but their 50% is already pretty efficient since they know the game so well. Its usually better to get a hard grip on the basics before playing really good players. I'm curious, what brought you to start playing aoe? its not a new game, thats what i mean.

    Shah IV 11 months ago Lucifer MorningStar don't play with top players. Three reasons. 1. They will never consider playing you. 2. Game will be over in 20-30 mins and you will be left wondering what just happened. 3. A lot of experts use strategies that would be a distinctly bad idea if we tried them, because we don't have the precision and skill to pull them off. And experts walk a thin line between a disaster from not doing enough and an even bigger disaster from doing too much, and somehow that is perfection. Play games around your own skill level (me perhaps :)) and maybe watch videos from youtube channels about expert matches. See you in the lobby :)

    Daxter250 11 months ago (edited) heh oddly enough, usain bolt will have diffculties in a marathon...'cause he is a sprinter ;).

    Blood Panthera 11 months ago Crille I know what you wanted to tell there but... Usain Bolt is a sprinter not a Marathon runner I don't even know if he would be able to run it. Otherwise a baby shouldn't even be able to walk, so maybe your point is still valid? Yet still a weird comparasion man.

  • Cri11e
    Cri11e 11 months ago A noble thought thats often echoed in esports, but Its like a baby doing a marathon with usain bolt. As a noob myself I can't even imagine what I could possibly learn except total annihilation. You'd learn more watching pros play on yt.
  • Burhan Umar
    Burhan Umar 11 months ago @Cri11e I suppose I could gain more experience from playing with pros?

    Cri11e 11 months ago Why do a newbie want to be rekt by some 2,7k players? Would just feel terrible imo. Join a noob lobby instead and have fun.

  • Anirudh Viswanathan
    Anirudh Viswanathan 11 months ago Rankings: 1. Italians 2. Malay 3. No one else because those two civs are way too damn OP and AoE2 water balance is terrible as a whole and every naval fight is decided in Feudal Age. I would rather play AoE1 or AoE3 for water battles.

    Geo Pol 8 months ago @RuneDillen In a monk war Aztec converted monks die, while burmese monks become aztec monks, so Aztec > Burmese in monk war. I would however go with Saracens in a monk only war.
  • Guilherme M
    Guilherme M 11 months ago I selected Aztecs because of their eco boost and 95 HP is not just a extra HP. It makes a huge difference in the long run. I prefer Aztecs monks because they don't die easily and resources are more valued. Of course, Spanish, Burmese and others have their good points too. But yeah, probably in castle age Burmese get advantage in a monk war.
  • RuneDillen
    RuneDillen 11 months ago in a monk war, I'd choose burmese over aztecs. The extra HP doesn't give any edge if you're just monks vs monks
  • Guilherme M
    Guilherme M 11 months ago Yeah, we can make changes. I Selected Slavs because of their +3/+3 defense.
  • Anirudh Viswanathan
    Anirudh Viswanathan 11 months ago I would replace Slavs with Teutons. Those cheap farms helps save a lot of wood(especially in Castle when you're eco is on farming simulator) so you can plop a monastery without much concerns for wood. Also that healing range being doubled means the monks can heal your expensive knights/Teutonic knights safely at the back or behind walls.

    Guilherme M 11 months ago In order: Aztecs; Burmese; Spanish; Sarracens; Slavs.
