The reputation of my Harpies are their main weapons

today i think I actually won my game against Elmer due to the harpies reputation as hardcore troops. for a crucial turn, elmer actually modify and held back his forces and had to unload all his shooting on my harpies. He could have decimated my spearmen. What a pity. although we do not know wat will heppen if my harpies r left alone...the fact i stheir reputation is so great that players actually fear them.

played 40k also. fire dragon and shuriken catapults range super low...jialat...very very hard to use.

I was right!

its an established fact that skirmishers shuld get the best guns possible. in this bk i was reading, the duke of wellington was criticised for giving his skirmishers unreliable muskets in the battle of waterloo.

have been playing a lot of com games rather than warhammer. AOEII is a great game no matter wad games i pay i still go back to it. its scenario generator is so flexible that i can play always all sorts of games with it, no matter wad period, wad faction. ok cannot play modern warfare but that got Star Wars mah. (which is AOEII's modern version in disguise)

Some things I learnt and thought of

In modern warfare, upon contact always try to fire the first shot. this is to pin down the enemy and/or force him to react to you. even if u do not know the exact location of the enemy, jst fire in a general direction. Its still better.

- translated from Rommel's diaries

Field skirmishers to break the enemy line. Train regular troops in skirmisher duties and train skirmishers to fight as regular troops

- French Republic Military School of thought plus words of Napolean Bonaparte

Always give skirmishers the most potent projectile weapons possible.

Archers(Ranged troops) are meant to even the odds and not to win battles

Some Women are so blind

PErhaps it applies to men too,
perhaps they were not blind just that they chose not to see.
I understand
coz i m no different.
I too wanted someone good for myself
and I too cast those unsatisfactory ones aside.
Yes i did offer them a chance
but a single chance is all that i have given them
I guess,
Everybody wanted the best.

I wonder if she is the one,
even if she is,
can i win her over.
All the best....
