    We use Gameranger for the online play, and use the 1.0c patch. Though I'm hearing about a 1.0e patch that I'm curious about.
    It's all Rodri's fault.

    Do any of you have AoE3? I was ranked top50 at one point on there (Top10 if you sort by French Civ hehe), I haven't looked up strats for AoE2 and never played it online -.-' I think you guys would pwn me lol. Side question: Is there Supremacy/Deathmatch modes like there are in AoE3? If so, which do you guys play? Also, I wasn't all that great in Age of Mythology either haha

    [EDIT] Are you guys playing the Conqueror's Expansion?

    [DOUBLE EDIT] I just watched a strat on youtube the graphics are so ghetto! hehe brings back memories, and the guy is scouting around with sheep haha, I remember when I played I was like 10 and had no concept of strategy Just build the coolest looking base and mass the coolest looking army and engage when ready lol, man I wanna play really bad now

    Would you mind walking me through that in a PM? And are these user-made patches?

    From what Alusair said there already is a group, we just have to become cool enough to be put on the list

    What I meant, was no one I know plays it anymore... its fun getting high in the ranks and all, but when there's no one to brag about it to, it loses its edge...

    Nice, I was put in Platinum... but my qualifying matches were my first 5 matches playing Protoss, my previous experience being all terran (campaign). I think i'd qualify for Diamond now... at least I hope lol


    I'm assuming no one plays RA3 cuz of the OP Double Dojo rushes? (They may have balanced it since the last time I played though..)

    Except for me! In fact I recall a certain game when I defeated both Conrad and Dylan in a 2v1. Not to say I haven't ever lost to him, but I generally don't. Of course, I haven't played him since I started playing again, so it is possible I'll start losing to him if he has improved.

    I do, with the first expansion (War Chiefs), but I don't think I can play online very well with dial-up (even AoE2 drops connections for me when playing against computer opponents), and lately I've had issues with 3D games which means I'll probably need to replace my video card before being able to play them again.

    Practice makes perfect. I was brand new to AoE2 when I started playing with these guys, but I've improved since then.

    Side question: Is there Supremacy/Deathmatch modes like there are in AoE3? If so, which do you guys play?
    I think AoE2's game modes are Random Map, Regicide (you must protect a king unit from harm), and Deathmatch (as well as Custom maps of course).

    Lately we've played Random Maps, with 200 pop, explored map, and fast speed, though I'm hoping to explore other match types/settings in the future.

    Also, I wasn't all that great in Age of Mythology either haha
    I think I do fairly nicely with AoM, but I haven't played online against others yet. Again, I don't know how my internet would handle it.

    [EDIT] Are you guys playing the Conqueror's Expansion?
    We are, yes. We play that rather than the AoK version.

    Would you mind walking me through that in a PM? And are these user-made patches?
    Patch 1.0c is the last official Microsoft patch for AoE2. Patch 1.0e, from what I've read, is a user-made patch that fixes exploits that can be used in online play. I only learned about it recently, but I'm thinking about encouraging the others to get it so we have the "legit" version in the eyes of the AoE2 competition community.

    I can try to walk you through the steps, sure. Though I'd give the credit to Conrad for being the know-how guy with URLs and things needed to get people set up.

    From what Alusair said there already is a group, we just have to become cool enough to be put on the list
    I'd not mind adding those interested in playing, and I doubt the others would either. More players means more fun.

    Well, for what it's worth, I think I may have made that statement before Conrad told me about your abilities.

    Pretty good. Frees up an hour that would otherwise be spent countering the attack and eventually sending a wave back at the invading scum. Unless of course we are dealing with Conrad, the Conqueror.

    Ah, I was only good in the Asian Dynasty expansion. And semi good on the other 2... and yikes against comps? I'm assuming you were playing against them with someone else

    Ah yes, I forgot about Regicide, that mode is always fun

    The Custom Games are a blast on AoM, playing legitimately takes skill, because Titans/God Powers/Wonders influence the battle heavily, man now I wanna play AoM lol

(great fun lan - Watch out bots will give you a hiding if your not fast) (Company of Heroes has 2 expansions and one mod expansion, Opposing fronts, Tales of Valor and Russian front mod All worth having)

    They should make a remastered version of AoE2, was/is a legendary RTS game.

    Btw I installed Gameranger. I need people to add me (I'm eric0095 on there as well ). Also, how do I download patch 1.0c? (I currently have 1.0b)

    [EDIT] My simple mind managed to figure out how to get the patch... now we play the waiting game...
    If anyone else was having trouble getting the patch, follow this link, and download the patch in the language of your choice
