Its not about the hades shade bug(Sorry for bringing it up dont kill me) but is the idea of banking shades for later, a cheat and can you be banned from ES0? I saw someone do that today. Or is the cheating only the infamous bug that I shouldn't have brought up.

I don't know what you mean by the hades shade bug, but I know that having no temples so you can build one and have a lot of shades is legitimate, because often it's bad, because you have no favor or MUs.

I'm on a a mac, I don't have titans, I'm new to age of mythology but not all RTS.

The Hades Shade bug was sorted out a long time ago.

It's perfectly legitimate. You delete your temple, hoard the shades, and send them all out when you next build a temple.

Of course the downside is you have no temple most of the game.

Because if there is nothing to fear,
they might think for themselves.

I do not believe that talk about the Hades shade bug is illegitimate, because it has been fixed. The point of forbidding talk about bugs in this forum is to prevent them from being known and used by more players. But a fixed bug is gone and can no longer be used. It is but part of the history of this game and can therefore be discussed without restrictions, IMHO.

You still playing? I will probably do so again once I have internet connection for the PC at home.

the bug was that if the temple was deleted EVERY unit would become a shade. now its changed to the normal 1/4 ratio. so storing shades up now is fine, but still problomatic in general as stated above.

Was it every unit? I thought the ratio was even higher than that, due to the game screwing up.

I didn't know what that bug was, I found out on a cheat site, I know it's forbidden to say how to get it, but I can say that I got 2 shades per second non-stop. It's not fixed in Vanilla.

You're on a Mac, so that's why it's not fixed on your game. On 'normal' vanilla, I'm pretty sure it's fixed. I remember being in a thread, about a year ago, where it was stated what the bug was, which was not modded, so I'm sure it's fixed.

that wasnt the bug. The bug was to build all around the temple and the shades couldnt come out. But the game didnt know what to do so it kept making more, keeping them in the temple until you made a gap.

Yes, Pug, that's what I meant. I saw a rec of it on Alfheim one time, he used houses too.

I once used that bug and it got around really quick on AoM TT

But it doesn't work anymore, I'm sure of it. Otherwise I'd still see like 600 shades attack my town in a supremacy game before second age... and be like wtf
