Start making an army the instant when you hit classical, otherwise all you will have are vills. You need an army to hold up that ~40-50 pop space otherwise you will have no space for a military. Regardless of what you are doing, you need a semi army to hold that pop space. If you are trying to 3 tc boom, then you should be ok. But early game army>>vills and economy.

Well, if you really want to do this, play Hades. He is a very good turtle god.
Spam toxotes and spam villagers. Spam econ upgrades, when you are poped, up heroic.
Make towers, if you see enemy cavalry, and then get the tech “crenellations.” That shall own most classical armies in AoM. You don’t even have to worry about the turma in AoT. Just be careful in AoM, It is a very aggressive game, and is probably best for you to stay aggressive.

Don’t get much armory ups, defend and up through hespatheses. Then get the aromory of hespatheeses tech. Then spam gasptheses, toxotes, petrolipli ( to a degree) and spam armory ups.

Yoma, you might want to check you spelling.

Pinkguy, try to be a little agressive, raid, etc.

Well if you have 3 fortified TCs and 10 houses thats 160 population and only a maximum of 80 pop can be taken up by vills so you still should have a good army since youll have resources for all the upgrades and buildings you need but when you start using a trade route then you should send some vills to destroy some buildings and get killed

You are spending all your money on vills and new TCs, so you obviously have no money left for troops. In other words, you are over-booming. Having 3 TCs on aq villagers will continuously drain you off resources that you urgently need for military. Of course it would mean an awesome econ in the long run - if you lived to enjoy it. But as you already noticed, no opponent will sit idle and wait until your heavy TC and vill investitions have paid off. They will attack you and kill your stuff instead.

For that reason, consider sticking with 0-1 expansion TCs in classical age, and spend your money on troops first until you hit pop limit.

Your basic unit comboes do not sound bad. You probably just do not have enough of them. Providing a replay might shed more light on this. In the meantime, consider the following:

  • You may have insufficient production buildings. One longhouse will not do to make an army! Make many production buildings, even if you feel that you will not instantly be able to power them all, and even if you are already at pop limit. You will need them to reproduce as soon as a major battle occurs. The one who reproduces faster wins. Money in the bank will not fight for you, only produced units! And a unit that is sitting at 99% in your longhouse will pop out with no production time at all when you need it due to battle losses.

  • You may invest too much in booming and too little in producing. Getting upgrades is fine, but getting units is more important. A second TC is fine, but very early pumping vills from 2 TCs can drain you off resources that you need for military production

  • You may not adapt to the enemy god and strategy. Against a rush god like Loki or Kronos, a 2 TC boom approach is suicide.

    But again, provide a replay or two so that we get a better impression what causes your problems. And make sure to watch elite replays so you see how the experts play your god.

    Yoma for worst AoM spelling ever?

    also, i love how 100% of people who when trying to watch recs for the first time say "my computer doesn't let mw watch recs". i think i am the only person in the history of aom who has said, "i don't know where to put them, what is the right folder".

    Need to agree with Ubermode here. Pinkie, computer error messages are often hard enough to understand as it is. If you desire help with one of them, the least thing that you should do is quote it properly and not just say: "It was something like (insert some garbage that the computer did not actually display here)"

    What, and you think everybody else here write the words "Gastraphetes" every day? Please tell me now if you are in one of the lower sets for spelling or something in case I'm embarrassing you or something.
