Welcome to Age of Mythology Heaven!


If this is your first time joining the site, hello! We hope you will enjoy your time with us as you become involved in the community and experience new possibilities with the game.

Before you do anything, it's a good idea to review the code of conduct here so you know what you can and can't get away with.

The Age of Mythology guide for dummies. 'nuff said.



You can grow to really appreciate these fancy works of art. Much of what you see in this section is done by the fans - artists, where AoM was the inspiration for numerous artistic creations. You'll see amazing hand-drawn sketches, out-of-this-world screenshots from the editor, as well as some attractive pre-release screenshots from Ensemble Studios.

Hey everyone,

My name is Wouter and I'm from Belgium, the tiny chocolate empire.
Age of Mythology: The Titans has always been my favorite game. I remember how I, 13 years old, used to stay up late playing this game on the old ESO server, usually ignoring my mother's complaints and sighs. Now nearly 10 years later I reinstalled the game recently and have fallen in love with it over again.
The biggest issue is, though, that my gameplay really needs to be improved. I have read all kinds of strategies about all gods and on all maps, but still I'm below 1600 on Voobly. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong.Even watching recorded videos and livestreams doesn't seem to help..
So I hope every member of this community can give me constructive criticism and useful advice to become a great player!

Hello everyone! I'm Agnis, I play AoM since I was 13 years old (I'm 24 now), but only recently been trying to improve.

I also like watching replays and "study" the player's build orders. And sometimes I like to commentate games just for fun, and because it's good exercise, to keep remembering the different gods and civs features. I would really like to get better at commentating

Wow, this is awesome!
I recently bought the game on Steam and was looking for some advice on improving my gameplay since whatever I did, I was getting crushed by Bots on normal difficulty.
This right here seems like the correct place to look for information at; there's just so much stuff to read through!

My name is kll4 on here of course (as you can tell).

If anybody can teach me something, please add me on Steam! My account name is kll4 as well.

Hello! My nickname is dolly_cat, but you can simply call me dolly, and I am 16 years old. I play Age of Mythology: The Titans and I like this game very much. I discovered this fansite on Google while I was searching for AoM cheat codes.
I hope I'll have a great time reading threads, downloading mods/maps, and maybe one day, I'll upload some maps myself.

Hello everyone!
I am from South America.

After some years of playing on GR. Voobly and Hamachi, and since last year I finally got the original Extended Edition for Steam which made me quite happy xD

I'm nor a pro neither a noob, but I like playing and improving, my main playstyle involves a bit of booming and turtling I must confess, but thanks to guides I tried rushes (sometimes successful ones), with Hades, Gaia, and even the vill's one which is quite funny. You must know that Steam players from AOM tend to be medium or newbies, nevertheless I've also found some pro- ones which kicked my ass too. I think there's an interesting mix of levels.

I really wanted the original version for years, and when I looked for it I couldn't find a way to find it. I could play on Eso for a couple of times tough with a borrowed key but later eso died.

Now I play quite often on steam, mainly rated 1v1 games.
I play Hades who is my main god, but I also like Gaia which as everybody knows is terribly up.

Btw some days ago I acquired the TotD expansion and despite being quite buggy I like it and think it has potential to trigger new civ/expansions, and why not to dream with a renewed AoM2!!!

I've been visiting this forum many times for years but never made an account. Now I did (btw I used to read a guide on this site something like "Hades vs Poseidon FH where the author explained the disadvantage in this match and the idea to get prodromos to counter Possey's rush with rush till FH now I can't find it, any idea?)

Greetings to all the AOM fans

Ty Cease, but not. It was from Hades' perspective to counter the Possey's rush. Casting pestilence on the stables, going FH with Hades and getting prodromos + toxotes.

I don't know if it was erased or something

I just try to find and read/study every Hades and Gaia's strategy guides but some which I remember reading some time ago, seem to have been deleted :'(

Hello there!

Im new here but I've been playing AoM since I was younger. Just recently started playing again. Played through all the campaigns on moderate.

I tried playing online these past couple weeks and I'm getting crushed :P. Hope I can get better with some tips here. I've been also watching some youtube videos and training the use of hotkeys. If anyone wants to play with me, feel free to add me on steam. My ID is Verixon.

Hi everyone. My name is Vadym and I played aom, aoe2, and aom tt for some time. I kinda recently had a problem with the Titans so I deleted it, and I lost the download thing, but i don't need it because I'll buy the expansion pack on steam soon enough, or until my subscription ends in a game of mine.

I actually have a question, but it isn't about anything here. Why does everybody thing Hades is evil and some even hate him. He is the only Major god you hasn't cheated on his wife. Plus, it isn't his fault that he is ruling the underworld, you actually should like that. He keeps (by aom series, he kept) the Titans from escaping into the human world. Also keeping the dead in his realm, If he wouldn't, the evil souls would go to the human world and kill, I mean by the myths. Plus, he actually didn't pick that job. I searched a lot about Hades, and most threads say he was forced by his brothers to rule Erebus, and guard Tartarus, while Zeus and Poseidon had fun being the #1 gods, and telling everyone he's evil. And the Persephone thing, Zeus aloud that, so it's his fault, plus anyone would've done that. I mean really, the only ones he is with is dead souls, and he got lonely, so he took someone alive in, that's probably the reason he let some heroes in, too. I'm annoying myself, wherever I go, I type to much.

Edit: anyone know why evil is so slow always, anywhere, cause in real life, it is ussually faster than the good. Anyone tell me why arkantos became a god, oh yeah, Zeus only lets people who like him to be immortal.

Edit: got a very big problem, I bought age of mythology extended edition a few minutes ago, but it tells me the card is blocking it and I can't buy it, but the card says I bought it 2 times, even though I bought it once.

New to this site, been playing AOM for a few years and looking to with some like minded people. Not sure where to look on this site but would like to 1vs1 or teams. Skill level is hard to determine since i only play with a small group at the moment. Let me know how we can hook up.

Hello everyone.

I am Dodge, and I have been playing AOM since I was 13 way back in 2009 lol. I'm 22 and still play it today, and I absolutely love it. Has to be the best strategic/action video game I have ever played, and the diversity in which it's based off is great!
I've always been a fan of Mythology and this game just seals the deal.

Even though I have played this game for many years, I've only just discovered this website recently! I made my very first post not long ago asking for assistance, and I got great feedback on the matter from CaptainObvious and WollieWoltaz ! So I'm here to stay, and hopefully I too can help others by passing on my knowledge of the game to those who need it.

Thanks everyone nice meeting you!

Good to have you! A good start would be to get your avatar set up.

If you click on the "my account" tab at the top-left, you can go into your account settings and click the Gravatar link to set it up. Make sure you use the same email address that you use for heavengames.

If after setting it up you don't see it immediatly, use Ctrl + F5 to refresh.
