1. Industrial Revolution since that is an interesting age to be in.

2. My favourite Soldiers would be Stormtroopers from Nazi Germany. Since Star Wars Stormtroopers were based on them.

3. Mate you better watch out I am an elite MLG Fedora wearing C00n King. I 420 no scope every day.

PS: Still have this comment so I went into my comments and copied and paste it back here.

2. Stormtroopers were based on WW1 Imperial Germany`s Stormtroopers, not Nazi Germany`s Sturmabteilung militia.

Oh okay thanks for the correction! Gotta get my history right.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+4 votes

1) The Castle Age was my favorite as I loved the medieval period a lot.

2) The musketeers, I would spam them and try to have epic musketeer battles with the enemy AI.

3) Yes! I would enjoy a challenge, especially on an RTS game :D I might not provide a challenge as I haven't played in a while :c

PS: Same thing ^he did

Kark-Jocke, add to the news an explanation on how people can retrieve their original comments.

Bisszy4ever said how in his comment, but maybe not everyone will see it, so it would be good to put it in the news itself, so that when people read to know what happened they will get it at the same time, in case they don't know. (They can even filter the comments by 'Articles', in case they wrote a lot of comments since then.)

Sorry for posting this here, just trying to help, it would suck to lose the opportunity to get the game because of this minor problem.

I agree with you BioDestroyer thank you for your example.

too lazy to answer again

Question 1: Both the Medieval and Industrial/Imperial ages. I enjoy the more intense mix of ranged and hand to hand combat in the Medieval period, whereas in the Imperial era I adore the long range engagements of both artillery and line-infantry.

Question 2: Mongoloid Horse Archers, simply the best unit for antagonising an enemy to the point of rage. Also extremely effective at sniping a large movement of troops to little more than a raiding party, and weakening the defenders of a city.

Question 3: Absolutely. Don't expect magic, though. It's certainly been awhile.

RESUBMIT: 'cause character limitz, tings, an' competition reboot yo.

Relax Kark-Jocke because **** happen, that's life :P

Industrial and Imperial age are my favorite. If the game progresses that far, with the right tactic you will crush the enemy. But if your enemy is equally strong, you are in for some epic battles.

Without a doubt, my favorite unit is Samurai. They have a strong splash attack that can harm multiple enemy units in one sweep of their sword. Mix them with some Yumi and Naginata Riders, and no one can stop you.

I would gladly play against you, but first i would have to play a couple of games against a computer so i can get back into it. It was a long time since i played any Age of Empire game.

Q1: Imperial Age, I wanna see everything a civilization has to offer, when I play I create all the soldiers I need and do not feel the need to spend time upgrading.
Q2: Hand Canonneer, having a huge row of them taking down anything that gets in their eyesight. Better than spearmen for horseback enemies.
Q3: I have never been to good at the game, and since its been maybe 6+ years since I played, you will get use to winning.

Q1:The Castle Age .cause I can build castle.

Q2:Longbow Archer.spam an army of them and snipe away.

Q3.with pleasure!

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes

Q2:My favourite soilder is the Liegonary of the Roman Empire
Q3:Yes totally.
