I recently asked 2 questions regarding build order strategies for Age of Empires:
One has been closed for being too broad, and the other looks like it is about to head along the same path.
It was my understanding that such questions are on topic. For example, the answers to this meta question explain the reasons well. As you can see from looking across the Starcraft 2 questions, 3 of the top 4 questions are directly concerned with build orders. The answers are generally good and useful. It gives anyone visiting this site a very good starting point to improving their online abilities.
My questions are specifically regarding 2 common game modes. In each of these you are very much limited to certain play styles due to game rules and conditions.
The expected answers to these questions are specific build order lists with explanation of villager numbers/ratios. The answers would be based on experience (as I said, the game mode is still played).
I'm assuming that the people who voted to close this question do not understand the online aspects of the game. The questions I ask have a scope. The question is not asking for opinions but rather tried and tested strategies through experience, with the strategies tailored towards a specialised game mode.
I checked this meta question which detailed that I do not need to explain aspects of the game to people who don't play the game.
I have attempted to edit the questions further more but I feel that I am rewording it for people who don't play the game rather than people who do.
Could someone clarify why these build order questions are off-topic?
