You're either a good troll or really stupid. You put basically WoL like 3 times on the poll and NE only once. Edit the poll or I'll pull it down.

Let me tell a story related to WoL.

Solano Lopez, the president of Paraguay sent a note to Queen Victoria of Great Britain. He insulted her and warned that the days of Great Britain as the world manufacture are going to be over soon. Lopez was constructing a lot of works(factories) on Paraguay and he wanted to challenge the British supremacy. Then Queen Victoria asked her prime minister to prepare the army and go capture Solano Lopez. She couldn't withstand such insolence. Two month later she asked her prime minister about this matter:
Victoria: How is going the matter of Lopez?
Prime minister: We are working on it my lady!
Victoria: Are the army and the navy ready to make the assault?
Prime minister: Yes they have been ready since 3 weeks ago but....
Victoria: But what?! What you are waiting in order to set sails?!
Prime minister: My lady, your generals are working very hard in order to find Paraguay on the world map Rolling Eyes But in avail. Until now.
Victoria: You're right. That's a big problem.

Did you get it! This is WoL, where in theory small nations can challenge and defeat the large empires of the 19th century. Paraguay may have been important on the international politics of South America, but it meant little to great powers such as Britain or Germany. In WoL, the Paraguayans probably are the strongest civilization (that's why I choose Paraguay for this story, I didn't meant to offend any Paraguayan), and many small or medium nations are devastating in WoL. The WoL civilizations are un-balanced and un-historical in some cases.

Well while wol likes to follow some degree of historical accuracy, the main point is to add civs and make match ups that would not be normally possible. Zulu for instance can end america's freedom in a flash. The koreans struggle to handle aztec and inca warriors. Sometimes sticking strict to history wouldnt make it much of a game. For instance if we try to make aoe3 all about rock paper scissors hand cav, skirms, muskets, ranged cav, and cannons with no variety people will be bored with seeng the same units in all civs with different names and uniform difference. People like archaic units, and they like elephants and camels. And ofc above all we love to condemn our enemies to hell by using the medicine man dance.

That's not entirely true. RTS games such as Starcraft (1 and 2) are all about Rock-Paper-Scissors, same with AOE2, actually. I'm pretty sure AOE2 has a larger playerbase than AOE3, and SC2 is quite popular still (especially in Korea)

Besieds, AOE3 is pretty much Rock-paper-scissors.

Cav > Ranged Infantry/Cannons > Heavy Infantry > Cav

In fact, most games are all about rock-paper-scissors; from MMO's to MOBA's, even FPS if you look further into depth.

I'm just wondering now if you actually get paid to make so much propaganda in so little time. Topmodel

That would certainly explain a lot of things

WoL can be fun at times but its horribly unbalanced, some civs dont work and the fact that my teammate can burn down my buildings and kill my soldiers with some stupid inca ability makes me hate the mod. It was much better and playable as WotTA.
