I've been a member of GameRanger for a while, and I am familiar with RM - Random Map, and CBA - Castle Blood Auto, but I have noticed other game types such as Path Blood and Michi.

Can you give me a quick overview of each type of game that there is?

The community isn't great with new players, like myself!

Thanks, Jake.

Michi is a random map, not a scen – n611x007 Jul 10 '12 at 18:31

I'm not familiar with Age of Empires 2 scenarios, but I found a list of scenarios with explanations which includes Path Blood at a blog called Gaming Lan.

It doesn't include Michi, but there's an explanation up at Urban Dictionary.

... a type of game map that uses impassable terrain (usually forest) to prevent players from rushing or coming into contact until the intervening terrain is cleared.

Link rot - the answer now only answers half of the question, as the link that explained the other half is dead. – badp Nov 13 '11 at 14:05

Path blood is a custom scenario, completely different from RM/Dm.

You have no villagers, or a town center, and instead you just fight with units out of a "spawn" They keep coming untill you lose your tower.

In a "Blood"

the basics are the more kills you get= the better units razings= rewards

and to win you have to kill everyone else's main tower
