I use to be a die-hard Norse player and now it seems that nobody uses them anymore. I use some Greek but im still playing alot of Norse. i think norse are now the hardest to play with because they really got nerfed with the patch. The true norse players are still using him. But really nobody seems to use norse anymore?

Norse are still much more popular than Greek and Egyptian, so they can't be that bad. See http://eso.die-ohne-clan.de/index.php?name=aom&gametype=Supremacy&timeperiod=AllTime&what=stat s&gmt=0.

The expac effects on norse...

Long train time for TA and RC
TA -.5 hack
Less effective classical fighting and more booming/titan problems
Some other things to myth units cost, and axe of munspell tech
Autoque least effective for norse

change for all buildings hack armor(I think) because of 50% hack to 30% hack.

Since I can't find nothing to tell me all the details like in patches.

Yes norse got a beating, you now can't just put together an OK economy and spam only cavalry and raid to win.

I must say that since the TA nerf norse have had considerable disadvantage in their ability to counter cavalry and infantry, but that is arguable.

ALthough the loki rush is still poweful, it is very very hard to take down a greek or eggy opponent late game.

i regularly download expert recs from AOT sanctuary and i rarely see a norse (usually thor and loki) beat eggies past the classical age. IF they win it is usually because they kept their opponent in classical. But once greeks or eggies get to heroic (if you're not also in heroic) you're have lost 90% of the time.

It's just because their units now take longer to train than they used to. <sigh>

Yeah, but 1700 in original AOM is like 1610 in AOM:TT and at that level all a Loki player has to do is learn the standard issue rush to be successful.

I've met about 8 Loki players in the 1700s who just spammed TA in Vanilla. Sad thing is, I kept losing to them .
