Mr.Milo has written up another strategy article, this time using the Iroquois who can field a versatile force. He also includes another voice over demo (VOD) that shows him using this strategy against another player.

The folks at RTS Professional.com have recently added a section for Age of Empires III VODs, if you're looking for more of those to watch and learn from. Currently they are showing expert player Parfait using a German crossbow strategy to deal with a Dutch opponent.

itburnsusFrench Cheaper Church Card

A bug was discovered in Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties following the release of patch 1.01. A French home city card lowers the Church building cost to a negative number, so that a player can receive wood for placing a Church. Exploiting this bug in games is subject to a ban from online play.

We are working on a fix for some bugs, including this one, and we will be releasing a 1.01a patch for The Asian Dynasties, hopefully as soon as next week. Saved and recorded games using the 1.01 patch will not be compatible with the game once it has been updated to 1.01a.

That is the situation at the moment, we'll do our best to keep you updated on an ETA for patch 1.01a as we get closer to having it finalized.
