    Subject: Civilizations Over Power

    Hello guys,

    I'm beginning to play Age of empires 3, and i wish i knew What are the most powerful civilizations and their main advantages (Late Game - Supremacy). Just over power civs.

     currently i'm playing with frenches and portugueses. Frenches and Ports are good on the last game? Eco and Military.

     Thankx

    You're new, eh? This question has been asked a lot.

    Most Over-Powered Civs are usually considered: France, Japan, Russia, China and Iroquois. And sometimes Spain, Germans and India. The last three vary by argument...

    You must be new aswell because that is not ture in either sup or Treaty ....

    Sup: India Iro Otto and then Japan slightly behind those

    Treaty: France, Russia, Japan, China

    How about the Sioux?

    Regardless, there are several posts about this with several different civs on each of them. So I could careless if I leave one or the other out. France, Japan, China, Russia and Iroquois are the main civs that get mentioned. I think the only civ that hasn't made it on the OP list at some time or another are the Dutch. I gave the main five, I did all I needed to do. He asked which civs were considered OP, they're it.

    But Iro is definitely NOT overpowered in treaty, just as China is nowhere near overpowered in supremacy. Overpowered civs is a completely meaningless statement without specifying gametype. And spain and germans just aren't OP. Just because a random sergeant says something doesn't make it true or worthy of repeating.

    Yeah, in TR Iroquois and Spain are powerful, but not over powered. Below the 4 actual op civs, tr is quite balanced, until you hit the *** civs. I'm guessing its the same for Supremacy.

    Yes, I thought about that when I made my reply to Jerom, I should have specified between Treaty and Supremacy, but, I didn't specify so that's my bad.

    Well China aren't OP in sup, but they are quite strong because they can mass quality units just as fast as Russia. The only difference is that Russian units lose to everything. On the other hand chu ko nus have an incredible ROF and qiang pikes aren't much worse than standard european pikes.

    You're a noob and you suck at supremacy.

    NO. U simply don't rush with china. It's designed for a FF. rushing with china=rushing with port.

    In other words, it would be a fail to rush with china.

    If you were talking about sup then you kinda faield aswell because Russia and France are nowhere near OP in sup (china is good but also def not OP)

    Chinese is superior in treaty especially when combines with Sioux, Iroquois and either British (sea) or France and Spain (land) but in other games I prefer Spain, France or India

    In the game version played now on ESO (repatch), in supremacy mode:

    India, Iroquois, Ottos -> overpowered

    Japan, China, Sioux -> lame but not top tier

    France, Brits, Dutch, Germany -> medium good

    Aztecs, Russia -> good (rush) potential early game, but can get better late game

    Ports -> the later the game gets, they can get stronger

    Spain -> requires more skill to face all other civs


    In fanpatch 1.2 which was probably the most balanced this game ever was, in supremacy:

    Brits - overpowered, with good hunts they can spam to infinity 

    Sioux - lame, but not unbeatable

    Spain - closer to top tier, but not really OP 

    Ottos - abus still lame, but the civ is less lame than on repatch

    France, Germany - medium good

    Dutch, Russia, Ports, China - decent, but take some skill vs more powerful civs

    Aztecs - somewhere below midtier

    Japan - weak early game, loses vs hard rushes, needs time and investment to start the eco

    India, Iros - bottom, but not really unplayable; India gets much better later game

    However, in fanpatch the distance between tiers is much smaller than on repatch. So, in a way all civs are playable compared to repatch.

    The best thing Microsoft could do now is fix a few things in fanpatch and make a new patch to implement fanpatch on ESO. It doesn't take much coding to make an installer which changes a few unit multipliers in a text file, so it would be quite a cheap refreshment.

    The more costeffective army can win vs a more expensive (better unit) because they can just keep throwing them at the other player.

    if it's not too intrusive- are you from Hindustan?

    we have talked about it - have not we?

    an official patch has been rumored to be in the tunnel by the way.

    I hate Japan and France the most. Japan has op soldiers and with those daiymos its so unfair. They can spawn them anywhere.
