Probably Thor due to the better economy he can get going. Plus he has some good god paths.

I've always liked loki in supremacy simply because his hersirs can help out a TON in a loki rush, since they summon myth units.

Thor is best.

Loki has a stronger classic rush, but if it fails his strength is gone.

No one bother arguing that loki is better or anything becuase it was just done here -> loki gayness - http://aom.heavengames.com/cgi-bin/forums/display.cgi?action=ct&f=1,23105,,all

well, actually , thor can't really do many of lokis strats if they involve lots of hersirs (which most do).

And your welcome havoc

Contradicting ?

I think it would be safe to say Thor can do just about anything better than Odin, but Loki has a different play style which makes him quite different. He may not be better, but it depends how you wish to play.

^^ Not true. Although I think Thor is the better god in general, Odin's ravens are very usefull for scouting which makes raiding/cutting of gold much easier. Also Odin's raiding bonuses are amplified by his god paths lean towards amazingly powerful cavalry (esp. Jarls).

Also it depends on your playstyle. If you really are the rushing type, like MU's and heros or prefer to attemp to end games quickly then Loki might be best for you.

My second statement is a correction to my first.

lol, heres the ghey part about Thor. His extra and earlier armoury upgrades makes his jarls stronger in battle. Plus his hunting bonus early on makes it much easier to mass rc, then odin

Yeah I suppose, although wouldn't great hunt amount to the same thing as the hunting bonus early on? Obviously Thor's would have a greater long term effect, but then Odin's cav upgrades would have greater long term effects than Thors early armory...

I guess when you consider it, all Odin really has up on Thor is his Ravens, while Thor wins or ties with him at mostly everything else. Poor Odin.


I do not suffer from insanity.
I enjoy it.

Technically speaking, no one god is better than the other, it just depends on how you play. Some gods are played more than others and have more strategies, making them seem better, but if you sit down, you can really figure out good strategies for each one. What kind of game do you play? If you like turtling don't go norse. If you like economy I would say Thor. If you are good at rushing go Loki. If for some reason (don't ask me), you wanted to try a fast heroic as norse, I would say Odin as his hillfort units are quite strong. On the same note, those that think Loki loses power if his first rush fails are wrong. If the first rush fails, any player should have a good economy to fall back on, and you will know what your opponent is doing ,therefore being able to counter him effectively.

Isis played using her bonus vs Loki played using his bonus = Isis wins. Tell me after you have sat down and thought about this how the matchup is equal.

I see your point general. I am also saying that if two evenly matched players who knew their god well played against each other, the game would most likely be close, and the player with more skill would eventually win. Isis is considered over powered, but there are ways to beat her. It depends on how you play and how well you know your counters.

i would say thor because he can just build dwarves for your economy since thor makes dwarves gather food and wood better then normal dwarves... you can save the extra food for more men or advancing

Thank you for ALL of your replies, I see that Odin is the best for simple raiding, and better economy. Thank You once again.

Odin might be better for rading because of his "birds" but Thor has better eco. Specially in water maps.

I think Loki is best at attacking. Esp. when u worship Hel. And of cause his Heroes summon MU. And if you worship Hel and use reserch Rampage. And his yth units cost less favor. You can also train your ox carts faster and even though they're weaker if find this bonus useful.

Thor is very good at economy. Dwarves are cheaper are good at gathering food and wood (in addition to gold). He also has his special armory.

Odin is good at attacking too. His human units regenerate and his Hill Forts have ore HP. He is good at economy too cause his villagers hunt faster and use that bonus with his GP "Great Hunt". He is also good at scouting. ainly because he has his respawning ravens.

Hope this has helped!

Thor is better, but Loki is not much worse than Thor, except when vs Thor on high food where Thor just rapes Loki. Odin is the god that just sucks lol.

High hunt:

Thor > Loki
Thor > Odin

Low hunt:

Thor =/= Loki
Thor > Odin

Medit, Anatolia:

Thor > Loki
Thor > Odin

Highland, Midgard:

Thor < Loki
Thor > Odin

Sad but true. However.....

Loki > Isis
Loki =/= Set
Loki > Ra

Loki = Gaia
Loki = Oranos
Loki < Kronos

Loki > Poseidon
Loki >>> Hades
Loki < Zeus
