Well for many old aok players the greeks seemed to be a very easy civilization to start of, after all they are pretty conventional to aok terms.

But for some new people or people that never became good in aok the greeks are living hell.

Specially in the start where they seem to be in disadvantage.

With norse i almost always go to classic by about 5:00 and with a decent economy to fend off rushes, but with greeks i find myself not being able to go until 7 because they
have a lot of issues, most concerning hunting.


How do you hunt efficiently with greeks? do you build granaries in every patch? how many woodcutters? how many gold miners?

What i do is to put my granary in the first food source i find and research the herding tech, mostly because of the extra capacity and to fat my herdables pretty soon for early eating.

For woodcutting i always use a mine near a forest, if there is none im screwed.

Also is it wise to put the woodcamp far if im facing thor or freyja?

hunting>herding>berries&chickens>farms

You should be able to advance around 5:20 with greeks with 21 or so villies

There are good strats for greeks on this site, search for them.

Also is it wise to put the woodcamp far if im facing thor or freyja.. For what reason?? so it's not destroyed when they destroy the forest your cutting from??? that would make your store house pointless anyway because thered be no wood, always try to have it as close as you can to the forest


how ever if you are sharing with gold and wood place it by the mine and leave a crack for your miners so they dont have to walk at all to drop of the gold and build another wood storehouse once your further away from the mine

(I can usually survive off the trees arround my tc in the first age so it shouldn't be a big deal if you can't afford a store house early on)

Menokal (I can't quote your post because the way you tried to do it messes up my quotes):
You tried to close the quote twice, take the "/" out of the first one.

If you try it is easy enough to advance at 5 minutes or before, try watching a recorded game and then using a similar build order.

i find no prob. with greeks and hunting. i am a 100% possy player and i advance anywhere from 5:00 to 5:45. possy of course has a hunting advantage cause of his gp that attracts animals.

for food i go chickens and then go right to the animals attracted by lore. then i go herd. usually i reach classical by the time i am done hunting. i never ever ever use berries. unless i am on acropolis and run out of chickens.

Menokal, i know its possible thats why im asking.

Well i just managed to get times under 6:00 with hermes for protection (in case im not fast enough).

I researched herding technology to less walk times and started eating herdables with few villies to get a constat food flow.
