Hello AoM Heaven.
Recently, I decided to pop my AoM CD in again. Now, I've never been a great AoM player, but right now I'm hopeless. I suck, and that seems to be the bottom line. I'm playing against 1570 players and I get my ass handed to me.

I mostly play as Thor. I've always liked to play the the Norse best, although I'm generally terrible with all the civilizations. I try to rush, but every time it fails. Usually, they see me and somehow knock out my base before I can do anything. I provided a replay of this: http://aom.heavengames.com/downloads/showfile.php?fileid=6782

Any tips would be great. I've read through most of the strategy guides, but I'm not really able to put that knowledge into practical use. I'm a fine player in theory, but when I actually play, I'm terrible.

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: Put the right replay up :]

I was AQing, but he knocked out my FB and I didn't really stand much of a chance from there.

I watched...

I suck at supremacy but i did find a bunch of things in your game.


You built your fb/rush base right outside the gates of his base.So close that he barely noticed it until his hunting party came and destroyed your temple.

You didnt scout to well and you missed his docks(fishing)and the tc(which you found after he made it)

You advanced really late and greek classical army>norse classical army.Your opponent also advanced late but he did do a big boom.

You didnt fish and instead wasted a lot more wood by farming.

Oh and by bad luck your opponent had his base in between a bunch of forests so he could wall the base and keep you classical army out.

Well these are just some few things i found.

With Thor, on any land map, here's al you have to do.

Get a advance time under 5:00 with a fb.
raid.
kill vils.
raid....
go heroic through bladr
upgrade your cav, keep raiding.
do a sort of offensive turtle around his base. what i mean by this is spam towers, hill forts, or whatever so that he can't walk away from your raids without being in more shit.
if he isn't dead yet, go baldr and rag+fw him

that's all there is to Thor..

n00bing ftw.

That's what my plan was. I manage to pull that off fine against AI's, but something went amiss with this. He swarmed my FB with villies before I could pump out a good amount of units, then surrounded his base with lots of walls.

any greek you probably already lost as Thor. I played a 40 minute game against a 1750 greek player the other day as Thor. i usually eat 1750's alive in about 15 minutes. this shows that greek is very strong vs thor. Basically, follow this archaic build, and you should be ok:

dwarven mine right next to your tc, put 2 starting dwarves on it.

if there is a lot of hunt, research hunting dogs from your ox, and send it to your nearest hunt. que 5 villagers to go to hunt. research pigsticker asap.(you get favor for hunting animals)

que 1 villager, then an oxcart, then 3 more villagers to go to wood.

que 2-4 more villagers to go to hunt. build temple AT HOME.

que an ox cart to go to gold. aq dwarves to gold until you can advance (at around 3:50ish). aq hersirs until you get about 4 of them. build houses until your cap is at 45. anymore and you wont be able to afford rax

Once you get classical, lay down 3 rax, and start aqing RC.
build moe houses once you can afford. get armory improvements as your eco allows (which it should)

raid him really hard. keep him off that gold so he cant make damn hippikons. without elite micro, no way are you going to be ebating hippikons with RC.
