Hi folks,

I'm used to play fast-pace games like StarCraft and Warcraft. When I start to play AoM, I find it good too. However, I think the game seriously lacks action at the first few minutes, we can't train any units beside villagers. All we do is just gather resources. Now, in a normal game, there's absolutely no action for the first 6 minutes (for a casual players).

Personally, I think the game will be much better if we can advance the first age much faster, so we can have more options.
I suggest a significant drop in resources needed and the time taken to advance to second age. That will be wonderful. What do you think ?

Part of the game is the Archaic (sp?) Age. It is when you first start and need to get an economy going, scout the map, maybe get a relic or two. Imo the game would be too fast paced if we could create armies in the very begining or if we had Meteor-like god powers. Thats just my opinion, but thats what you asked for.

    zzoo,

    If you have any moments of spare time during the first (Archaic) age (up to say 6 mins max, 5 mins preferred), then your not playing correctly, or at least not up to potential. I'm an expert on not playing up to potential, so I know this very well. To win against an average experienced player, soooo many things have to be completed by the time you hit the next age (Classical), that most of them need to be automatic for you, or you'll be seriously behind time wise. A leisurely pace definitely won't cut it in this game. Your first raiding parties should be setting out at about 8 to 9 mins. You can expect your opponents raids to start at about the same time, so be prepared.
