Who Do you normally play as? Because I normally play as Thor. I just want to know who everyone likes. I didn't Like The Egyptians because their human units were too weak for me. I din't like the Greeks because I found them to be rather awkward. Thor's the best.

EDIT: I have vanilla.

You all no I don't have time to come up with witty sayings and aphorisms for use in a signature.

Isis makes me so mad with her anti GP abililty. Though Walking woods renders that useless. just take an ulf, put him near some woods close to an Isis town, use walking woods, delete the ulf, watch the fun. and Fimbulwinter, too.

Thor atm...

I like building with infantry and love his versatibility..

I should play Isis as she is the easiest to take to higher levels but I find difficult to adapting to her after playing Norse for so much time...

Eggy Classical can be good if you use it right. I only do it for Norse. Once you find their forward base, make an oblesk with your priest that is hard to find (like inbetween trees) near or next to their base. Than, make about 8-10 of the counters to the units they are making, and upgrade them (medium). Than buy Blacksmith upgrades for them. This will very very easily fend of an early rush. When you advance to Heroic, than you bring out the midgol units and seige to destroy their forward base. But, do not under any curcumstances try to destroy their forward base with your Classical army. This will result in a very swift defeat.

I always find my Egypt classical units dying to Norse ones even though I counter them - e.g. Axe/Sling vs TA/Hersir - it's because TA counter Axemen and they kill all of them from behind their meatshield. Microing slingers is the answer, but sometimes the axemen just die too easily.

I started with Egypt (Isis, then switched to Ra), so NEEDING wood for buildings throws me off (I always end up over compensating and collecting too much when playing Random God lol).

Sorry pinkguy, but from experience, I know that slingers do counter Norse ta. Yes, I know that they are infantry that throw axes and not archers. When I target them, they do a big bonus. Sorry to disapoint you.

Slingers get a bonus vs Throwing Axemen. Something like +175%? Can't remember.

It's not a theory, it is what actually happens. You should try it.

I always thought slingers did big damage to TA because of the general norse lack of pierce armour.



I like Gaia for cheap economy upgrades and the lush looks nice. Also she can get implode, which is immense.

Thor is really good. Extra armoury upgrades are great, and getting burning pitch early really helps naval battles. But he can't go Njord, which is a bit of a bugger in naval battles.

But raggy+FW is awesome : D



Zeus is good too. Worshipping Hera gets Medusa, which I like to use in my archer section. Instant kill on some of the more irritating units. And lightning storm is niiiice too.

Pinkguy, I did a test on editor, one unupgraded slinger vs. one unupgraded ta. The slinger won with 30 HP left. It did 8 damage to the ta per hit. It's attack says 3.

Slingers have a base attack of 3. They would absolutely suck against anything they didn't have a bonus against, no matter what pierce armour that unit had. They definitely have a bonus.

Slingers has 2X multiplier against TA, FTW...

TA is probably one of the units got most counter units than everything else.

Since it is an infantry and still receive extra damages from all anti-archer units.
