I just started a game as the Greeks (I'm normally Norse), and found that I got to the Titan age at 25 minutes (normally way later). Also, I had 67 villagers at the time, and almost no army (which didn't matter, I faced 7 easy opponents). At what time should I normally advance ages? And how many villagers should I have?

Maybe I should say this too: it was the first time that I tried to put hotkeys to a good use.

it all depends on the game and the strat you're using

5 to classical is average
heroic sometimes as early as 10 (if you're norse/greek)
and mythic, just get there when u have the eco unless it's part
of your strat (like going rag+fw)

Always train villies. You should have more than 80 at end of game due to trade. Start getting trade during heroic age! Also, getting to mythic means getting 10 free villies - AKA plenty vault. Very handy.

In mythic your first priority is getting an exit strategy - a wonder or titan. I would choose a good place where your wonder/gate would go and begin to fortify it with walls and towers. When possible, go titan. Once you have titan, go wonder. Lame is king.

Defiantly communists...

Trashing communists like that doesn't make you seem cool, you know. It's basically just a big sign to everyone: "Look at me, I'm not even halfway through high school."

Please educate yourself or seek necessary assistance in doing so.

a normal advance is around 5.15-5.30 in which time you would have made as many villagers as possible in the time the game starts and the time you click to classic.

Keep making villagers constantly. If you have a strong economy you will have better military faster and beat the enmy that may have a larger military bu less improvements.

To the heroic it depends, if you go fast to heroic will be 7.30-8.30. Semi FH maybe 9-12 mins, depending on the game and how aggresive you are and your opponent.

For the mythic, if you think that a mythic god power/ units will give you advantage for the win i would go as soon as you have the resources.
One game i quickly got to mythic with the son of osiris which helped me win the battle and then the game.

i think a good economy will have 75-80+ villies

Knowing you live in America I'm going to take a wild guess at this and say you live in Texas or Idaho?

Ok thanks, now I know that Im getting there. (Now I also know that potato heads live in Idaho - I'm so going there once!!) Should I also constantly train soldiers? I never do that, I usually build an army just before I'm going to use it.

no i do not live in texas or idaho

yes half of my extended family lives in idaho

hell to the **** NO would i ever be caught living in texas

why would any of my posts intimate that i live in either of those 2 states?

ps: whoever posted this, you need to constantly train villagers and army. i dunno about the other civs, but as norse i end up with about 35-40 villagers and a full popped army as soon as possible
but that changes depending on what strat i do, etc.
