I've recently started playing AoW, and while there are some challenging scenarios in the campaign on hard difficulty, the scenarios are just way too easy. I haven't lost a single one yet, with all AI-s set to Emperor and leaders not on map.
Is there any way, maybe house rules, to make it harder? I'd really like to enjoy the scenarios, but steamrolling through them isn't really fun after a time.

If you can beat that 1 the only thing i can think of to make it harder is to try out a mod for the game like warlock rules.
But as in most games the AI is the limiting factor in solo gameplay so try a lan or pbem game with human opponents.

Indeed, I think you will find play by email quite challenging. If you would like to try then I can set up a game or two.

Thank you for the tip. So far I've only played a bunch of maps that came with the game, not custom scenarios.
Kanibeos, good idea, I'll let you know after I'm through finals then

Hi Paganini! Do you still want to play? In that case I'll set up a few games with you in them and some open spots for others to join. In that case I'll need your email address

You can change your style of play and impose arbitrary restrictions on yourself.

Examples:

-Play a map with all 12 races, but your own rule that you immediately declare war on EVERY race you encounter - no peace, no alliances, period.

-Try winning by building ONLY level 2 units.

-Use only one race. Migrate all cities/towns to this race, even if they are friendly to you.

-Play with Leaders Off, or if you do use Leaders On, do not customize your leader.

-Refuse to build archers.

-Set the CPU Emperor to "Aggressor".

Links? I'm playing the Last Stand Before Destruction scenario right now (linked above). It's a lot of fun so far, and very challenging. It reminds me of another map called "The Bitterhorn", but I think it implements the feeling of a siege a little better, and it overall harder.
