Topic Subject:"Milita Suck"
posted 02 October 2004 02:38 PM EDT (US)         

I play vanilla, and I am a BIG Possy player. I was playing a 2v2v2 with a friend, and When I got raided while my 30 man army was elsewhere, by a Isis player, he crumbled my Fortress and there went 5 milita, they held him off long enough for me to train 3 Hipps, 4 Hops, and 2 Toxotes. How, you ask? He was looking at his crumbling base and I ran my Milita here and there, making his slow army move everywhere. My 12 new soldiers killed his men and victory was mine (for that battle )

The point being, Milita don't suck like people say they do, you don't HAVE to fight with them, you can distract too. And in Mythic, a Milita man out-did a Heavy Hypaspist for me once...

well i kinda agree because if you have extra wood with possy you can build walls of granarys in front of your town and get craploads of them

"what the hell?"

yeah, or if your facing Hades, and he goes with Artemis, make a crap load of extra buildings, some Earthquake will give you like 40+ men

na possy players can go artemis also, which is why i get a tonnn of granarys all in this one spot really crowded with like 30+ of them and i EQ all m granarys.. it is like Ragnorok you have tons of them lol it is so funny when they are like "huh where did you use the EQ and they spand like a minute searching their base to see where it was used

Yeah "Militia suck" is a pretty stupid and noobish statement. There was actually a strat that involved making granries and then deleting them just after advancing to classical.

It wasn't me that said it, It was someone else (forgot the name) When I used the search option...

Yeah you're right. Militias are very useful.

yeah, militia are sweet. i was losing a game once and the guy earthquaked my base. i had all may houses and a ton of other buildings. the number of militia i had combined with the rest of my army over ran him.

also, you can't delete your own buildings to get militia.

There is only one true God, but since He is not in AOM, I play as Kronos.

Yeah once i earthquaked a possy player and there were like 40 militia there, he had his GP left so he cast Bronze on them... they ate my army the second wave killed them tho..

do they count as infantry? or are they a class apart like shades?

I wonder if you can create your own militas by deleting your building. I tried that, didn't work .

People don't say Hades Shades suck (or they shouldn't) so why would militia suck?

I hate playing against militia because they slow down a rush.

So yes they are good.

They are very annoying, next thing you know your 5 portable rams are dead.

Yep, theyre "too good" now

Thats why Possy doesn't need to worry bout booming, even if they raid you with 3 Cav, your milita will help distract them long enough for you to get there
