Re: A Guide for Beginners

Very good guide!
I have been watching many many expert recordings for over half a year now, often times with commentaries by Turkman, ZeroEmpires or Resonance, but still the guide gave me a little advice here and there.

But I have one question, considering that the guide was written four years ago: Is it still common to use Voobly or GameRanger? I've read in some tournament announcements that they're played via Voobly, yet the AoE HD Edition provides it's own multiplayer, right? So is the paragraph about Voobly and GameRanger still up to date?
Also, since there is an "elo translation" given in the guide, how does the AoE2 HD/Steam elo translate to the ones on GameRanger and Voobly in terms of being noob, being merely good, being pro, and so on? I've been playing AoE2 HD since its release (and AoC very noobishly before), but only now I stumbled across AoC Zone and Voobly/GameRanger...
So, yeah... a couple of questions. Thanks so far! :-)

i dont know the numbers regarding aoe hd on steam or gameranger, however there seem to be atleast > 600-1000 players in the medieval sieze lobby in voobly. gr doesn't not have an active anti cheat system, neither do they have a rating system. Although i own hd i have always prefered to play on voobly since the release because of initial lag issues. Currently the situation seems to have improved however i did not test it. There is a good distribution of skillset in voobly ranging from noobs to pros.

Hi! My question is where can i find some article or sth about the details of the game? For example: how much faster the food comes from hunting, than from sheep. etc.
Thanks in advance!

These rates are spot on with one exception and that is that fish traps were improved to .340 in a patch (I think was 1.0c).

These rates are from my tests and the results were posted at MFO and probably at AOKH years ago as well. I don't think any of the basic rates have changed for AoFE. Note that these rates assume no walking or sailing to dump food.
