Ive decided to throw in the towel with Aom for one reason. I played a game today, 1800ish players involved. Now my opponent, made straight Raiding Cav, which is fine, i though, hey why not make [b]straight spears[b] that would counter them, wouldnt it? they were FU to Heroic and had Anubis Spear Tech? Well the short answer is, no it didnt, and if spears dont counter ONE unit armys like the raider then fine, ill find myself another game. Im probably just babling, ill probably be back tommorrow, who knows, all i want for this game, is for counters to work, thats all, well that and Set to be nerfed.

I just looked at the rec of that game (TGA and I were both Isis, they were both Odin). It was ghost lake, and the gold piles were extremely unfair. Both of us get 1 gold pile by our tc and none in the back corner between our tcs, one of them got 2 gold piles near tc and the other had 1 pile by tc, 1 near tc and one sheltered back in the corner. So for my 2nd gold pile (my first ran out in early classic) i had to go the middle of the map on the edges for 2 gold piles there. That all added up to RC dogmeat. It was just a gay map. *shrugs*

For some reason I read that as Brittany Spears and I was like WTF and then i reread it and its straight spears. Anyway she is straight i'm pretty sure. IMO RC are counterable by spearmen, but they could use a small hack armor decrease.

Well, if the Golden Arm says he's gonna leave, it's probably an indication that others feel the same thing.... anyways, come try again after the X-pack comes out!

Have a nice time, TGA.

I experience a slight trouble with my Zeus vs eggy and the slingers in Supremacy, and the fact that the majority of the Supremacy -1700 players go Norse makes me refraining from Supremacy.

How many spearmen have you got?
Of course 4 spearmen don't kill 4 RC (haven't tested, just hypothetic). That would be unbalanced, because a spearman is cheaper. You can counter RC pretty well with them.
Is there a replay btw?.

And don't leave because of one game...

And don't wish to have complete paper-scissors system. Then it would look like CC Generals, where expensive units get killed with 2 hits from cheap units. That means that you must micro like hell to keep the units behind so they don't die in 2 secs by fighting their counters or armies mixed with their counters.

Spearmen cost 70 resources, rcs cost 90 resources, so I decided to simulate 9 spears vs 7 rcs. according to som, 4 spears survive. so 630 resources worth of spears beat 630 resources worth of rcs

You treat AOM like some kind of girlfriend. You dont like something so you dump it. You are a loser. Its a game- deal with it. Nobody wants to hear all your whiny crap. We all know that RCs are rigged and it will probably get fixed in the next patch. For now, STFU, or get out of here.

I told you I'd be back.
