Refined Goods: Modern Era and Beyond

There are many milestones in the game, but a big one is entering the Modern Era (ME). By now you’ve already experienced two-lane roads, and you know that the way troops behave has updated.

For many, this is a daunting thought, and it can be...

Unlike other...

FOR GVG FIGHTERS WHO HATE LAG AS MUCH AS I DO! I’ve just started using Waterfox and the difference on the maps is more than a little noticeable! Please follow the instructions below and try it out. The difference it makes at calc is pretty great. I, for one, could use a little less lag in there! The newer versions of Waterfox can now run the Flash Utility, which means it is possible to run the game. If you are running...

Say What!? General Game Acronyms

Eventually, you’re going to run into the user-accepted acronyms of the game. When you do, some of them may seem obvious, and others may not. To help with that, the following is a list of the common acronyms you will see, and what they mean. Eras BA – Bronze Age IA – Iron Age EMA – Early Middle Ages HMA – High Middle Ages LMA – Late Middle Ages CA – Colonial Age Indy –...
