I agree with this, and it had a lot of pros. Though I'd also like to point out that there were a lot more trolling, trash talk, crying, drama and in general bad behavior on AOC. We'd get a game going and then one player decided to go perma-camouflage fire arrow (you remember that glitch?) which would then piss someone on the other team off. Next game that guy who's now on tilt decided to go pathfinding plague swords. Which would make someone else tilt...
Also there was a lot more common for people to just randomly alt f4 or wall allied mines etc. I'm not saying this would never happen on EEC, just a lot more common on AOC.

If you're talking about 2016 I'd say every top player except for Krass is incredibly inconsistent. So IMO he's clear #1. The next three spots is between me, sam, dave, gurke and nafra. Ye.. eC dominates.

I'm definitely EEC. I play both, but since I came from EEC (2004-2008) I'd never consider myself AOCer. Not sure about Nafra but I assume he consider himself as EEC too.

Back in my time, I didn't lose Cav Exp vs Regular Swords, You'll be surprised by how much pressure you can put on, and how fast you can mass cavs with exp. You would start building a 3rd archery at 5 f11. Of course, this is going back years to my time.

Are you implying that you could put more pressure on with EXP than regular CA civ? I dno how you started, but from what I've seen pretty much everyone started 2 TCs with a EXP+Gold civ which doesn't have WC or Building CR. To survive CA vs Sword you basically need perfect play the first F11 10, and here the regular civ is better. After F11 10 the EXP civ is a lot better of course, but I can't imagine anyone getting that far without taking serious damage.

This is what made playing AOC so interesting Imo, If you took the trash talking and drama with a pinch of salt, It was good fun.

EE can be quite dull at times.

And very rarely did someone deliberately troll in a 4v4 game from my experience.

I can't remember exactly how I started, but you can apply just as much pressure with Cav Exp as you can without.

I don't understand how that's physically possible.

Cause of the early archery range. It's basically the same as your EE cav tc start.

If my memory is correct, Nafrayu = himmel? Ya? If so, he rarely played mid on AoC. I mostly played mod tl with him and he was a strong player. But there were also a lot of strong mod players so team games were pretty fair and toss ups. Only in 2v2/1v1 did some mod players really stand out and I think himmel was up there but like I said my memory is so shot.

I also think as the game died down more dominant players emerged. Phobia was always a top mod player but it wasn't until the days of when Symbols dwindled to a handful of mid players did zeke really stand out as a game changer in a 4v4.

I also forgot half of my friends list so I used zeke as an example.

edit: ya i barely remember much other than eC and other euros like omega and fly dance were top mod tl pockets. But i still don't think himmel played much aoc mid.

They always played in Ric and Yuri's games so I assumed they were euro. The bigger question is, nafra = himmel?
