I have a few.

one of them was today, i was playing an Advanced Setup game His rating said 1600 but he played much better, I'd say about 1700 - 1750...anyway, he was owning me, he had total map control, yet i somehow kept the better the economy...anyway, after a few tough battles I win a TC from the middle of the map, and get to the titan age, note his score is much more than mine, alomost 3,000 more.

I make it to the titan age, but before I even place the titan gate he resigns. I was like ummm ok

Another win was before i left AoM....I was playing and i managed to get to the classical age around the 4:40 mark wit zues, i make no more than 5 hippipkons, and the 1 free mino, go into his base and he resigns saying he wasn't ready for my attack yet..

anyway, I didn't a thread like this, so i thought it would be fun to hear your stories...

I heard about a game in this forum a looong time ago but there was a game somebody played against a noob--I think it was his first game--and he adopted an odd strategy: Fear. He said "my army is coming to get you" a few minutes later he said "you'll never survive". And then "My cavalry is so powerful" and then proceded to run his starting greek scout into the enemies base, where he promptly resigned! Best game ever


" I didn't particularly feel like being arrested, so I argued with the soldiers a bit. Several of them died during the argument - those things happen once in a while. Unfortunately, one of the casualties was Taur Urgas' oldest son. The king of the Murgos took it personally. He's very narrow-minded sometimes. "

My weirdest win was when I lagged it so much the enemy resigned.... maybe that could become a strat.

My easiest was an attempted krush, but first I attacked one of his villies with a hero oracle and he resigned. Must have been scared of my scout...

I had a weird win the other night.

My opponent, playing Set, made it to Classical pretty fast. And then made it to Heroic fast too. I kept scouting his gold mines with Hippikons, and could find no trace of him anywhere. I did encounter several waves of Set animals. The guy went mythic before me, as my army moved in to attack his home base.

That's when I realized that his base had 8 buildings: TC, temple, armory, market, and 4 starting towers.

The Vision-Meteor on my base didn't slow me down at all, but it did make me laugh...

Started a rated game with Hades.
The Norse enemy just made no vils, killed his current vils, and scouted with his ulfsark the whole time.

When you get 5 second wins and your opponent just resigns at start.

When you are in a 2v2/3v3 game and one of your allies resigns right at start. I always plead for a save when this happens. Anyway - they wont save but you go on to win, this has happened a few times. I always type 'shudda saved '

The one that rewarded me with a supremacy rating of 1625 ! I accidently started it (mistaking it for deathmatch) and I was about to quit when my enemy did just that

Nothing special. Just someone who didn't make villagers. Got to mythic, spammed temples and castles all over the map, then marched a myth unit army into his archaic TC.

Must've been more than a year ago, though, it was the first time I tried playing Isis.

was in a DM; 2 vs 2.
the first thing i did, i destroyed my sttlement by mistake (my finger was on the wrong button lol). while i was archaic, my two ennemies were mythic, while my ally used a meteor to destroy his base. the game took an hour, i was desperately holding off my 2 ennemies. then when i sent a few guys in my 2 ennemies direction, they just give up.

Started a game, it lagged at 1st.. my opponent didnt move any units.. just went in and killed him off at 6 mins, oddly enough i got a "gl hf" right before I killed him..

Must have been some connection error, still quite the weird game..

lmao, my first online game was the best. I was Oranos, playing vs a Zeus player with a rating of around 1600. Exept i thought i picked Kronos, and didn't realise it until i tried time shifting my temple, lol. So i brought a villy to the side of the enemy base and made a second temple there while advancing, and did a krush (exept with Oranos, and 30 secs later). I valor'ed my oracles and started spamming turma, then switched off to cheiros when i remembered he was zeus :P

He ended up calling me a smurf. I was happy. >=)

EDIT: (To answer below post)

Yep, i did pull a pretty good one off. I kinda have a phobia of online games, so i'd had aom/aot for over a year before i played online :P And anyways, you'd be suprised at how good you can get by watching recs and practising on moderate comps O.o

lol, i do have a rec if you think i'm a liar or something :P

He should have went cav and archers.

So it was your first online game - but you pretty much knew how to do a decent krush?

start up a rush, and as your vills are qeued up, press 11 as many times as you can... totally distracts him as you bring in your army from one direction first, and the other one from another directions after 15 seconds.

My best win was when I played a 3vs3 on megalopolis. It was kinda 2vs3 because my third ally didn't know how to play and made three vill (he was Atlantean, one for each resource)and then about 30 minutes into the game my opponent built a wonder but was building very slowly. I saw that and decided to build a wonder. I built it a half-second earlier than he did and nine minutes my greek ally destroyed his wonder and then we just sat around waiting for a minute. It was awesome.

I was playing against a newb. I was Atlantean (Titan's just came out and I wanted to eperiment, don't hate me) and he was Norse. He stared off by saying

"Hi. How are you?"

and I new he was a newb. I said

"Fine. Are you new?"

"Yes... Be nice to me?"

"Sure."

I putzed around the map for an hour not really doing anything constructive. I assembled a decently sized army and decided to give this new guy the thrill of a "big" battle that he would win. I took half my forces to his walled base and found that he only had ten hersir and ten vils. My half army easily cleaned out his base. After sitting around for an hour I got tired of this and killed him.

im gonna go with weirdest

i was hades and he was thor, but i usually figure hey, hades is a ***** to rush, so i just make several toxotes, a couple heroes, and some hoplites, and im usually right and end up repelling the rush.

but this guy was Roxxolz!!1!11!1!!one!!oneoneone!1

i had just clicked heroic, wondering "why hasnt he done anything yet..." this was around 9 mins. about 5 seconds later he comes in with this HUGE upgraded army and pwns my sorry *** clean off the map, and im thinking "holy hell, this guys good"

...i was wrong i guess. i got away with 10 vils and ran to a nearby settlement, and still had the resources to build one. it was like starting completely over, against an enemy whos already got a full-fledged army.

he hit again, like he shouldve, but by some miracle of god (along with curse and restoration and a nemean lion :P) i pushed the attack back with my much smaller army, and even razed a few longhouses before i had to pull back. now im thinking, hey that was pretty good. i guess he had to waste more resources on another army, because he still didnt advance to heroic.

the game went on and i blasted him off my original settlement with some petroboli and toxotes, and the game evened out, even tilted in my favor. i went on to win.

it was weird because, how the heck can you make a comeback with 10 vils in late classic??

maybe he wasnt as good as i thought
