If I would explain which Gods to use in which case, this would be a 1000-line post: everyone has a different style of playing, so U have to find out for Urself. I'll give only one tip since U R AoK-player: both buildings and siege really got nerfed in AoM.

Welcome to the community!

I suggest you play through the Campaign, it gives you a feel for each of the civs.

There are so many differences and possible reasons for each civ, that as Theris264 mentioned "this would be a 1000-line post".

Browse through the Strategy forum here for a lot of good information.

Welcome to AoMH, and the realm of AoM, Starkers!
I would be able to talk non-stop about the Greeks.

The best advice I can give you is to keep producing villagers.

Never have your town center idle, don't ever relie on wall for protection like in AOK... I would continue but now that I remember, there's a post that said 10 hard learnt lessons. This has basically the 10 most important things in the game that will get you going really good if you can do all of them. Search for that.

remember this unleashing the titan is many times what it all depends on unleash your titan and destroy your opponents gate!!! other than that play some random map games!! that should get you on your way to becoming a good player!!!

Everyday nature calls to me.

Hey Strkers, Welcome!

Egyptians are more of a defencive civ, you boom and sit back and counter off any raids. The other way to play them is to fast heroic, then take advantage of new techs+ new units.

Norse is the nomadic rushing civ. Use them for raiding and riping your enemie to crap fast, and its fun! (Though hard vs high raters). You also need to know when to stop trying to raid, and then to take advantage of what damage you've done and get ahead, ex get Heroic and take the new units + techs!

Greek is in between the other two, they can rush agresivly, or you can go defencive if you go ex Hades. Alot of them get "cease fires" and take settlement right away and changes the game alot.

Alanteans can be played a varity of different ways, I think they can get the best Classical age time, like 3:30-3:50 regularly. They can rush or go eco and defend agaisnt norse and counter off no problem.

Just some basics, if I made a mistake or w/e sorry :P!
