WOL takes place in the 19th century, so no, it doesn't take place in the colonial era. As for all civs having access to the great war age, so did Rise of Nations and Empire Earth.

Yes. Also, tanks weren't widely used in WWI. Cannons were the artillery and aviation was only at its beginning. So the Maltese could fight since they have to use artillery to have a chance against a strong opponent anyways.

What? Sorry... I've only been playing the mod for a couple of months. I think you mean that a pikeman had bonus against artillery and tanks are considered artillery and they don't have a resist for melee damage as I've seen from the scenario editor

WWII? I think you mean WWI. Still, I didn't know... Wow... That's pretty funny when you think a pikeman could take out a WWI tank...

Actually, WWII is about right.  And technically, they weren't pikes so much as bamboo poles with explosive charges at the end of them, which were designed to blow a hole in a tank (or boat, according to this wikipedia post:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fukuryu)
