Topic Subject: What is so good about DM's?
« Previous Page  1 2  Next Page »
posted 08-21-02 11:30 PM EDT (US)   
What is so goos about DM's? I've played them, especially Modern ones, but I've never really liked them. What is so good about them? And why does everyone play them. It seems like no one likes RM's anymore, because they arne't patient enough to actually get their own resources or something. What does anyone else think on this?

DM ISN'T FOR NEWBS AS FOR RM BECAUSE YOU NEED BRAINS FOR BOTH AND IM SURE IF YOU WERE AN RM'ER YOU'D BE ABLE TO BEAT A NEWB AT DM AS WELL AS IN RM.

Good economic is really important in DM. I always have one gathering bonus in my DM civ.Depend on what resource i'll use most.

BTW... I really hate that <KOS> face!!! He's a jerk.

masquerading as someone else doesnt lead to credibility and just adds to the prevailance of poor gamemenship and cheaters and fakes.

i never actually played the guy it's just that i've seen him spam, and he's so easy to irritate that it's kind of hard not to want to make him mad

The EE community is like this because it just hasn't taken off like AoE or AoK did.

This is due to the fact, most of the HG staff and resources go into the sites where the game is made by ES. It seems, this bring more people there. (Then we have the main HG 'community'. That's just OT Heaven!)

Still I think we should just live with the fact EEH isn't as busy as it should have been and stay ON TOPIC!

I think DMs really never took off because even in DM you still don't get enough resources to last a good game. All the units you spent your original resources on are simple wasted in a massive battle that usually occurs in the middle of the map and then it's just like a RM with a city already built.

I must say, I enjoyed AoK: TC more than EE. EE is very good game, but my heart is still with TC

I dont like EE DM...All your gold and iron is wasted in 5 game min. Then its not fun anymore.

And I like slow games, they fit me

Um, I was one of the three people promoted after the AoEH revamp. I've been at AoEH for 2 years now. Just came here after getting EE.

Yeah, I agree with Surge, EE DM has too little resources compared to the huge amounts some of the units cost. A AoE/AoK game would get you resources through abotu 20 mins of solid fighting. With EE, the make you initial army and then back to RM. Double or triple resources would be good. (Even infinite resources might be fun!)

INFINITE???

Then it would be more like "who is fastest"...It may help the guitar n00bs (like me ) to get their fingers on strings faster

Eh, not always who is the fastest, but who is the best micromanager.

Because if you use your units effectively, like not getting all your units to kill one unit 2 times over but to spread them around the enemy. Then, we may see who is the best army organizer...

download AzN's dat file mod "Unlimited resources". The catch is, all players must have it.
