Hi there! This is a thread to learn things about the game that arent very well known. For instance:

Trolls re-gain hp with every rock that hits the opponent. The more damage the more regen. (This works on buildings but to a lesser effect)

4 Trolls if they are spread out and lucky can take down Nidhogg!

8 Automatons can destroy a town center! (One or two rebuild the others while they destroy the town center - this takes alot of micro and time but is possible.)

This one is really obvious if you think about it, but... Fishing Ships can be garrisoned in Docks and now the 95 pierce armor 1600 hp building will fire arrows just as powerful as TC arrows.

Also, please post your own obscure and amazing and new discoveries here too!

i think what he was trying to say, was think what you like,
if you want to think you won, you did.
if you want to think your the best, you are..
and he doesnt care what you think, but he isnt going to argue with you about it, as it isnt worth it.

ok, i think i speaking for most of the ppl who read this thread:

LoH_silk, bobthedemon will one of you guys please be a civil adult and just apologize? this way we dont have to here your non-sensical arguments about:

A) a person's grammer
B) if a person is gay or straight (honestly, who the hell cares)
C) a person's insignificant mistake
D) if a person stated a fact about AOM which turned out to be wrong, then dont aggrivate the situation and say that person knows nothing at all about AOM


finally, to get back on topic: an Einherjar's horn blast (his special attk) can sometimes be selected as a unit, if you're fast enuff to get it. Called SFX horn blast, i think

*applauds for LoH_Silk*

Thank you. Now, can we get back on topic?

Kastor (adult) has exactly the same stats as Ajax, but Ajax does more damage per attack, IIRC. Probably because Kastor attacks faster (?).

Kastor with staff has no voice sounds, but his blank sounds override all others'. Therefore, if you select a bunch of units with Kastor with staff among them, no movement/etc. sounds will play.

Bob, I don't want to defend a side as it will only start up the arguement again, Loh_Silk sounds combative alot of the time, but he really isn't, he is just used to talking that way. Hey you shouldn't complain as in order to start something you had to retort, also, at least he had the decency to make a form of an apology. And Silk, ty for contributing your part to end it.

I think I better contribute something or else I will be OT so here, medusa cannot petrify pegasus, nidhogg, the phoenix, odin's ravens, or the roc. I wonder if you can petrify a phoenix egg, but I highly doubt it.

Actually, thats what I wanted the whole time...
I don't like spamming forums.


Anyway,
AoM was considered by ES for a long time before it was implemented. The team considered all kinds of things, from reworking AoE2 to doing something in space before finally deciding on Mythology.

If you put enough arkantos gods together, they should be able to kill an osiris by bouncing it back and forth with their special. As long as he doesn't regenerate. Does Osiris regenerate? In fact, this should work for any non regenerating unit.

In an edited version of strategy underground, you can purchase chicken meteor god powers.

A guardian can kill a roc when he swings his sword backwards if it connects. I didn't believe it until it happened to me

Osiris the god does not regenerate but makes up for it with 20000 hitpoints and uber armor. btw phenoix eggs cannot be stoned but are still vulnerable to myth units with bonus damage because it qualifies as sort of a myth building since it can train phenoixes.

Interesting fact:

I was the first to appologies with this...

'I do appologies if I have upset you emotionally.'

Did it sound sarcastic? I'm awfully sorry if it did. That was never my intention. Honest!

Heimdalls tech, safeguard, cannot be researched in sudden death, because of the citadel.
Phoenix egg DO CAN be stoned. At least by Perseus.
When using chaos, directly after Oranos GP and the units is flying, the units doesn't get chaosed.
Thats facts that is actually useful.. taunt 009 ooohhhh

I'm happy things have finally turned around for the better, come'on how hard was it! =)

A phoenix has 30 crush attack but an un-upgraded watch tower will kill a phoenix. (Watch tower, not outpost)

towers have bonus damage against all flying units, thats why you spam towers when the opponent has phenoixes or nidhogg.

If you're making a villie then you cast citadel, the villie stops training. I'm not sure about getting the resources back..

You can't put a Citadel in group with TCs (I hate that sometimes...)

Does anyone have the answer to this?-If you put the marks down to build a TC, and someone else builds on it, do you get your res back?


Yes, I do suck.

yes you do get your resources back if another player builds on a tc that you were planning to build. Also you get your resources back if you are training villagers from your tc and then cast citadel. Citadel deletes your existing town center and puts a citadel in it's place, reducing the amount of units it can hold from 25 to 20.

I'm sure the purpose of Citadel is to give you more HP on your TC, not more pop. Just positive!

Lazer Bear has speed of 100

speed affects a unit's chance of winning a battle. I tried in the editor 1 classical hersir vs 1 classical hersir. I gave hersir 1 the boots of kick everything relic and hersir 2 nothing. hersir 1 won the fight just by a split second. In general the more speed the more likely it gets in the first hit.

You can't place a TC marking thing on top of a TC that's being built on. This applies even if you don't have visibility (through fog of war) to the settlement. It can be useful, sometimes.

Kronos and Oranos are the only major gods without ominiscence. weird. You'd have thought that the god of the sky could see everthing

because that would be cheap! well at least for Kronos..

I am trying to think of a reason or Oranos. Maybe because they could just implode themselves into the middle of the enemy's base, or he could build sky passages everywhere the resources are around their base (or safe passages, omg that would be lame if they build a giant tower that you can travel through right next to all your gold and wood gathering)

Something strange I noticed is that when playing versus Attie and they advance with Helios the on screen notification says they advance with Atlas. I've had this happen many times while playing somebody online.

I think that was a problem with a version of Enhanced Tooltips or something. It was in one thread a while ago.

Yes, that's true. Kronos is the only major god that can't research Omniscience because he could just timeshift a building wherever he wanted. No major god can research it in Deathmatch, or it would be too cheap.
