Matt gave me so ideas on how to improve my game so I worked on what he said. In this game you will see good examples of raiding, out skilling, Team work, and the importance of good tower building. Enjoy and feel free to comment. Coke
Coca Cola: You need to know your forces and which of those forces counters each enemy unit.
I don't feel you made an adjustment early in the game against Egypt's spears. Those spears whooped your cav, yet you kept generating gobs of them. If you really wanted cav, use them harrassing vills behind his lines. Hit and runI saw you do it a little, but it was way too late in the game and you should've done it consistently.
The other thing you could have done with your cav is baited his spears, leading them into your axes.
When faced with spears, I would have generated throwing axes, Hersirs (bonus w/ Loki), and some ulfsarks for flavor. Einherjars were an obvious nono as evidenced by his priests raping them.
I didn't watch the whole game, but I had pretty much seen enough at that point.

Good 2 on 2 game. dkk seemed like the weakest of the 4, and Robin's early build was the best of all 4 players.
Previous comments were valid about Robin not adapting to Eygptian response. Raiders' strength is in their speed, and I fear that speed was not utilized enough. Troop manuveuring is something hard to do though and I think there were a lot of valid manuveuring on Robin's part, just not often enough. Robin correctly didn't make a lot of Hersirs in early game, since they don't do well against slingers. He took on 2 opponents almost entirely by himself early on, giving his partner sufficient time to boom. As evident by the postgame, Toilet had a civilian unit high of 80. Somewhat of an overkill I think, the game could've ended sooner in a more decisive victory if Toilet had rushed with Robin together and took one of their opponents out in early classic age. The game's transition period definitely happened when Toilet launched his massive attack with superior technology. Robin soon cast a very good walking wood GP in a very precise location and that move finished any chance of their opponents coming back.
