Hello guys,

I am a new player in the aom community. I played this game when I was very young and enjoyed the mechanics in my campaign adventures. Recently I got bored working all day so I installed AOM and discovered the Voobly community. I learnt that playing AOM competitively is a lot of fun and very intense. I also discovered that this game is filled with strategies, build orders, smart and stupid decisions which can change the game. It simply is an amazing game that I am now addicted to.


On the other hand, I have a hard time keeping up with better players than me, especially versus norse.

I mainly play Oranos and Isis. I find them very versatile and I would like to become really good at them so I can start some team play.

Here's a recording which basically shows how bad of a player I am:

I would appreciate it loads if you guys could have a look and give me some advice specific to my gameplay:

Some notes:

I ****ed up in the beginning with the villagers, I misclicked (still getting used to hotkeys) and I had some TC idle time. Ofc this put me at some disadvantage but I think I adapted moving villagers around the resources quite well and still went up at a decent time.

I was planning to go forward base on the TC near me, but I got scared by the crazy amount of RC he had. I adapted my army and I was able to win any fight, keeping my economy stable and harassing his forward base. I grabbed behind TC to get a higher pop and I was preparing for Heroic as best as I could. Unfortunately his better skill level slowly wore me out and I could've even advance to Heroic. I was planning to get some destroyers and put pressure on his base while I went and grabed a third TC, making the fight even. His ragnarok just put full stop to the game.


What did I do wrong besides the obvious mistakes? Obvious as in IDLE villagers, buildings, getting pop blocked. Those I suppose will get fixed in time with more practice.

I want help with strategy mistakes: I adapted to his army, I microed pretty well, I raided, and still lost.

I watched all Keep_gaming videos on youtube and I can say I know how to play in theory, but in practice I panic and my judgement gets clouded by fear and stress. Please help

The experts, which you'll also see on twitch once in a while, are on RTS-Sanctuary. Heavengames is kinda the modding community, for the competitive Voobly community try asking there:

On youtube I like to watch BoIt for competitive games, which is commentated old expert recordings.
