I recently got my hands on a copy of the game and I'm enjoying it quite a lot I have to say. I used to be quite into my RTS games back in the early AoE days and I think that this is a pretty fitting RTS for console owners.
I'm getting my ass handed to me online, but that's beside the point :D
My question is, what the hell are Elite Honour Guards good for? I've been using them sparingly as I'm not aware of the unit/type they're decent for countering and for the moment, they seem pretty redudant.
two things, i think that the best use for them is as a scout. and two, do you even know the meaning of the word redundant? thats completely out of context. it means when you say/do the same thing twice for no reason.
first of all, honour guards are good for scouting, but only for thier invisi, other than that compared to rea l scout (ghost) it cost's more, takes long to develop and naturally slower in speed. me personally, use my honour gurads for either gurading the prophet, well thats thier primary use. and also leading a small group of infantry and holding off stronger units.
and Dan Allen117, you obviously even know the meaning of redudant, it when something has no more use to it either never had or anymore.
economically, it means when something (someone) has no use anymore or needs to removed for a reason such a dear wage. then they are told to leave work but get paid a X times the aomunt in wage. in this case, the he is saying the honur dont really have any use in battle, only for the moment, pay more attention in school, you'll learn something.
