Player 3's Name: Bob Trag
Player 4's Name: Lilith
Player 5's Name: NPD (Me)
Player 6's Name: Chezus
I started out fine, We were forward building and all. Chezus and I went Titans first and just before Chezus was gone he used Ragnarok so impressively. Lilith at the other hand was smothered by Engineer( Who I think is the star of the game) and even though I clobbered Bob again and again, he came back again and again. At last , I had nothing but a few buildings and with my wonder destroyed I resigned. Guys, I'm new to this game, AND I HAVEN'T EVEN COMPLETED THE SCENARIO YET, but I could hold up against much experienced pros like the LGNs. I want to improve. Any suggestions? Don't hesitate to even scold me around, I will listen( As I find this game interesting and want to improve...)

Over and Out!:-D

It was a pretty good match, apart from the small mistakes you made here and there...

Additional Comments: Well, you made quite a few mistakes in the game, I'll point as many as I can to you.

1. Your starting line of tasking Citizens on gathering wasn't exactly brilliant. You didn't try to rush, which is completely fine, but you didn't go hunt the Elks which were near you. You should've built an Economic Guild right away and use Hunting Dogs and then kill the Elks instead of the Chickens. Here's the basic Citizen tasking steps that most Atlantean players do(Unless they're planning to rush, of course)
1 Villie builds EG and upgrades to Hunting Dogs(Granted there are huntable animals near you and it isn't a water map)
1 Villie goes to food too
1 Villie goes to wood
1 Villie goes to gold
1 Villie goes to food again
And from there, you can decide on whether if you want to add more Citizens to gold or wood or food according to the game time and any other developing situations. You might want to consider if you want to upgrade to Pickaxe and Hand Axe too.

2. This could be the main reason why you lost this game. You didn't advance to Heroic until like, 20 mins. You had many opportunities to advance but you just kept spamming Millies. If you had stopped the loop, you could've advanced faster than anyone else. It's really hard for Atlantean players to destroy buildings let alone entire bases with just Murmillos and Turmas. It is possible if you rush, but since you didn't, you got owned. You just kept spamming Turmas till the very end, never even tried to make any other units. Actually, you didn't make any Siege units at all, only about 2 or 3 Destroyers. By the time you reach Heroic age, make a few Barracks and start to produce Contarius, which is well, decent against buildings.

3. As often as you can, take along a Citizen with you so you can build a forward base. Make a base near your starting TC and use the units generated from there to fend off any attackers who's trying to destroy your forward base. In this case, your main base would be the one you built just infront of your starting TC and your forward base was supposed to be near Chezus' base. So, when the enemy attacks, you can make units from your backward base and then advance to your forward base to kill your enemies.

4. This isn't a mistake, I just wanted to point this out. Lilith was kind of a noob. He didn't make any Siege units either, just spammed millions of Slingers, which died instantaneously when he fought with [LGNs]Engineer's Toxotes. He should've built more Migdol Strongholds and Siege Works to take out [LGNs]Engineer's base. After all, building Migdol Strongholds and Siege Works is one of the best things about them.

5. You didn't use your God Powers to it's fullest extent. You could've used implode at the heart of his base but you wasted it by using it infront of it. You wasted your Traitor god power on a Contarius and a Turma. You could've used it on the Colossi that were attacking Lilith's base. And regarding Valor power usage, always keep a Citizen inside the God Power circle and 3 Millie units(except Chieroballistas and myth units)and then cast the God Power. You get to upgrade a Citizen into a hero for free in this way.

6. You didn't use your Market very well. It should've been placed a bit further from a TC and then the Llama Caravans should've been tasked on an Allie's TC, which are usually farther away then your own TC. And you should've built a Market earlier and spammed more Llama Caravans so they you could've tasked some of your Citizens on food or wood.

7. If you were planning on building a Wonder, then you shouldn't have sent your Titan forward. Instead, just keep it beside your Wonder so that you could defend it when the enemy came. You should've asked Chezus to sent his Titan too. I really doubt if your enemies could get through 2 Titans, the Ragnarok units AND all your other units to destroy the Wonder. Lack of communication was the problem here. And when you're building Wonders, it's always best to build it a at a corner rather than in open air. Building it at a corner is better because you can build Walls and Palaces and Watch Towers around it much easier.

Well, that's some of the mistakes that I noticed right away, but for a beginner, you played really well. More games with experienced players and you can get really better...
