Two things come to mind when I see this: 1.) The phrase Leroy Jenkins 2.) I should try playing Age of Empires 2. Never really played strategy games, but this seems to have caught my attention. Can I play it on Xbox or PS3 or is it PC only?
When me any my sister team up however, we use a very different combo. She's Byzentine I'm Teutonic. Once we hit castle I build a ton of T.K.s and light calvary backed by some priests and just start tanking my way through the enemy, using the calvary to take out the archers/siege my knights are weak to. Everything else dies in front of their tanking, especially with priests healing.
Meanwhile, my sister is rushing to her discounted Imperial Age, and then come the trebuchets and cataphracts. We then proceed to just steamroll everything.
