    I'm not into AOE 3, but if you get Age of Kings let me know.

    I've never played AOK online before, how do you 'host' games? Which options (from the 'multiplayer' option) has Flow been using to get the games going?

    Multiplayer, TCP/IP, then press Create.

    you can go to www.whatismyipaddress.com to get your real IP, the one the game gives out is always wrong. Of course you want to do that tomorrow, because Flow's changes everyday.

    I beat flow again for my 5-0, then tonight I played Camren to go to 6-0.

    :bergman: Watch those recordings boys, hunt your sheep, keep your TC producing villigers. Get the loom upgrade before luring your pigs. First 8 go to food, next 2 go to wood, 8 more to food, then 6 more to wood, 2 to gold and hit the upgrade button.

    Read that article I posted, it is everything you need to know to play a decent game. Who's next? :bergman:

    Damn, that Tex is pretty good at this. But it was my first go so I'm not disheartened by my crushing defeat. But if we are to play later on today, some backup will be nice...

    I'm here, I want to see if flow or any of the other euros show up. We can play regicide or some other game type as well.

    Multiple opponents require multiple screenshots IMO. You have to learn the build order and economic boom.

    Goddamn, I was appalling. We need more volunteers to help us join the struggle against Tex.

    If anyone's avaliable for a tag-team session, I'll play. Doesn't seem much point for a one-on-one!

    Actually, outside of my WF matches I am 8-7 since I started playing around the time I started this thread. Back in the day I was around the top 500 or so, I'm no where near as good anymore.

    There used to be a ratings system on the Microsoft gaming zone. MS has since taken Age of Kings out of the games they host. www.gamepark.eu has it up again, with a new ratings system. I've only got 15 games in so it's not exactly accurate for me yet, but I'm about 5500 on their system of 20000.

    Urgh. I've been up to my eyeballs in it lately, but I will fit a game in with someone Christmas week, if anyone is up for it!

    Holy hell! I installed this game tonight and just played around a little. Before I knew it I had wasted two full hours on it. The damn thing is addicting.
