Hey,

I've played Age of Mythology on and off since it came out, but I've never played in the online community. I've been reading through some of the guides, but I come across some terms which I don't understand. I was wondering if there is some sort of thread somewhere that explains what FH is, and micro-ing, and a/e etc. I understand most of them are probably insanely simple, but I'm sure that I wouldn't be the only one that would be helped.


Also, I was thinking about starting playing online, but I have no idea of where to start - which forums/sites to join, mainly. Any help?

Thanks,
Frosty

EDIT: Ok, I found Mokon's dictionary (http://aom.heavengames.com/cgi-bin/forums/display.cgi?action=ct&f=1,12771,,all. Is that the main one, as there are a few terms which aren't in there.

I don't know a/e, I think I asked about it earlier, and know I don't remeber what it means.

FH: Fast Heroic, get to the Heroic age asap
microing: 1. Being able to click on specific units in a battle and telling them to attack specific units. 2. Being able to manage your economy.

Just start playing online! Make a username and password, and search for a rated game. I.E. Click on quick setup, choose your major god, and click start. (if you do a non-rated game, you might get thoose guys that like to destroy noobs by making a new account when they are like 1800+)

That's great, thanks!

The other thing is, where can I find out about all of the main playing styles eg. Loki Swarm and Oranos 4:30 etc?

Last time I checked Rax was meant to mean BaRRACKS, not hard counters. Did it really got so deturped after all this time?

no its my bad, i nkow where i went wrong.

When ppl say spam rax units. i thought they meant hard counters since eggy classical units are hard counters and i use eggy.
Looks like they meant barracks then- but thney the same thing if u eggy.

microing:
technically it means micromanaging your units. used so you use your units so they counter the opponents well, therefore killing more units quicker
