[quote=""StrokeyBlofeld""]My interpretation of lame is not specific strats. I would class "lame" as winning with no skill. This may sound a bit strange to you and it might be hard to explain but that is what I class as lame.

For example: 3v3 you attack and get pushed back, they wall up big time, you wall up a little while still trying to push but you can't get in their base and they sit back and mass cuirs and opri and then run riot through your base.
Ok, perhaps you should lose this anyway, but it is still lame.

There is no skill in this, no micro required, no management of any kind is needed. This is LAME. When something like this happens there really is not much you can do and it sucks![/quote]


Oh really? I seem to recall a 3v3 on texas where we were beaten back forced to wall up made it to age 4 stopped 3 attempts at a trade monopoly sneaked an FB in the back of the enemies base and lammed redcoats and opris in their bases. That was immense fun. Especially because the guys we beat were so damned ****.

Also, besides sticking to one civ (I've decided on India...wish me luck) for at least one month, my goal is to play an average of 1, ideally 2 rated games a day.

So by January 11th I hope to have played between 30-60 more rated games than I currently have.

Yes, but what made it fun was the fact that they walled up heavily and started laming, we somehow managed to beat them though. This was one quite good comebackthough.
That WAS an awesome game though, we almost lost that several times.........

Yes but sticking to one civ is something I've never been able to do, plus I figure that it's only a month, not forever. Heheh.

Also, there are people all over the top 1000 playing India, so it's not impossible. :D

And it's a fun civ anyways.

It'll be tough though.

Poor Macavity!! Now everyone is playing India just a few days ago he was one of the few dedicated India players.

I did the same thing before I switched to India, went and did a little ELO research to see if anyone was actually winning with them and top players are doing well.

HOWEVER I find almost no instances of 1v1 vs. China after december when a few of the Lamer strats become widely known. Top players tend to backburner India and play Dutch or Spain when faced with some of the lamer OP civs like Aztecs and China.

He rushed at like 5.30ish with pikes/rods/dogs and i beat it back with musks, continued to make and send musks and he attacked again, and army+ tower + tc fire easily beat him back. In the mean time i was boooming upped another rax and started for lbows as he was going more xbows..anyway I went a battered his fb and was starting on his base when he resigned and called me a brit lamer?!?!?!?!?! wth brits in 1v1 are like up...so if anyone can justify this pleease tell me!!!

Man, by the time I got to this thread it morphed into many things, but not a goals thread.

Here are my AOE3 goals:

1.) Make this website the most organized and most informative website on the net. I think we are already there but standing on the shoulders of other websites (i.e. links).

2.) Increase clan membership so we have someone on all the time. Eventually get everyone on Team Speak / Yahoo / Skype, etc. for fun team games. Of course, quality members over quantity.

3.) Update my unit comparison sheet for TAD (long term).

4.) Rating? I do not care, most of my games are clan matches and unrated. I played 1 rated game in TAD and that was against a jerk who was rude in a plantation game (wanted 1 civ at 100 so I could have 11 at 100). He was a 1st Luit, I got 6 levels in that 1 game.
Lead, Follow, or Get the Hell out of the way!

Takes a lot of fortitude to play an UP civ and succeed at it. Just wait till the patch comes out to fix them!
