Hi there, i'm new on this forum lol ... well let's get straight to the point
I usually play with Oranos or Kronos.. my main tactic is to build a 2nd TC while advancing. I don't do this against norse cuz then they will outmass me with ease... Against norse i advance between 4.45 and 5.40... it's always too late cuz by the time i got some military (kata/turma/promethean) they always have more... just because he advances around 5 mins :C
Does any of you have some tips for me against norse... perhaps a BO or some unit tips which i should built

Well it may sound weird but you should rush them. Especially against Norse you should Krush them( Kronos Rush). You will always win unless they start making RC. But you could still try to outmass if you raided their gold real well.

Com_Nightmare, maybe we could play sometime? Add TTK_GeneralNoob. Also, I agree, you must rush. I think a Krush works well at killing their forward base.

Also, I think turma are useless vs Norse, cherios will excell vs them. Though expensive yes, and Rc eats them. I think in the end, it depends on who micros the best.

Early on the Turma do fine unless its RC. then you should back down off the Krush. Turma plus Promethean plus oracles will take out the ulfsarks which 90% of the players do to combat a Krush. Also Kronos is very aggresive so you might want to lay off the TC for a bit.

I use norse most of the time, usually Thor, and as soon as I see my opponent(s) has Oranos I make sure to get some Ulfs in the mix because from my experience when I've gone head to head with my ulfs against the turmas with similar numbers my ulfs have come out on top. Are you saying the RC are better than the ulfs against turmas? I know there's been some debate on here whether turmas are categorized as archers or cavalry, so i'm sure that would make a difference on which one is better. I would prefer going with the RC so I can focus on building them up instead of fooling with the ulfs.

How did you come out on top with a "few" extra ulfs? I easily take care of ulfs with my small army plus it eats away your res way to quick. Yes RC are a lot beter. However if you use the Turma to raid his gold quite well- then you can outspam the RC with turma.

Also sleemie you mentioned work delay because of weather. Where do you live?

RC are much better (though ulfsarks should beat turma). Turma are archers (or more precisely counter-archers, which makes them even worse against cavalry than normal archers), there is no debate among good players as to how it should be classified. It may be a mounted unit, but it is a ranged archer counter, so it must be an archers. You can clearly see this by testing in tbe editor how both rc and ulfs do against turma. The rc come out way ontop.

Ulfs are good to use-if your 7 min into the game. Most Norse will try to combat a classical age army with a archaic army. That wont work.


Harr you play AoE3. What do you think of it? Is it worth it?

I believe it is worth it. But that's my personal opinion, I can't guarantee that you will like it. However, I do suggest trying it. The cards add a lot of strategy to the game and natives add a lot too. But then it doesn't have things like god powers and myth units, so you could claim it isn't any better. The main reason I play it instead of aom is that it is fresh. I've had aom for ages and playing something new is more exiting. I am still to decide which of them is my favourite out of the two and I think it's such a close run thing that it will take a lot longer for me to decide.

Ulfsarks are good to use. But rc are preferable when facing turma. Ulfsarks do have advantages which mean that I might use ulfasks in some circumstances, but if I can get rc then I will.

and I bet everyone had to go to work and school that day. Out here people panic so much cuz they're not really prepared for that kind of weather and schools tend to close down and business open late. It does take a lot for businesses and Gov't to actually close, though.

Upgrade towers and just stay within TC range early on if you can, just take a minute or two to catch up with your enemies army, norse have slow training units except for ulfs, which arrow fire will murder. The Krush works too .. but some norse players may advance right behind you and make the krush fail.
