    Subject: Time to reflect

    While we cant get on and play, I just wanted to say how much I have enjoyed playing this game and figure my costs to play over the last 5 years are approximately 2 cents an hour. I would happily pay hundreds of dollars/pounds for a worthy AOE4 . I know of no other RTS game that is so playable (2 hours every night for 5 years).

    So condolences to Ryzon and hope my game of choice is back soon.

    no you can't.  your skill level will always remain the same.  why do you lie to this guy and get him all pumped up?

    ok -- that was a pretty humble response --

    you CAN get a TON better.  Get your basic build orders from GS's guide.  No joke for all civs this is an excellent starting point.

    Serious response (honest)

    Since my children have been able to slay me on any console game for 10 years or since they were 10 I honestly think expert micro is a skill requiring speed of reaction faster than most middle aged players can match , especially after a medicinal scotch or two.

    ok since we're being serious and honest.

    I also have kids but younger than yours and I like to relax and have a drink or two while playing, but you can be decent.  My real rank is 2Lt on a competitve account with which I don't bash.

    edit: but yes ... i like the term 'medicinal' after 8 year of marriage and 2 kids lol

    I fully agree; even though I'm quite familiar with the technical side of this game I'll never be as good as the best of the youngsters here simply because I can no longer react as quickly as they do.

    I think it may be a factor. The oldest top level treaty player is 40 years old (might be 41 now? idk), was 38/39 in his prime. BedingBedang. He was not always consistent, but wow there were games where my jaw would drop... being pulped back to my base, having a 1300 score vs his 1900 by someone a quarter of a century older than myself!

    Of course, it didn't happen often :)
