The map is anatolia and we're both Odin. I don't want so build more than 2 docks on each side because I want to save wood for longhouses. He built 3 docks on the side where we both had begun fishing so he won the sea battle pretty quick, even though i hit classical a bit earlier. However he didn't build docks on the other side, so i was able to boot boom and remain a decent economy.
He started making troops on land a bit earlier but he didn't hurt me much and i could compete with him fighting for the middle. We both failed to use our heroic GP's succesfully. He cast frost on only a couple of my units and lost that battle. I cast WW in an attempt to take down his hillfort protecting his last goldmine, but this time i was the one to lose the battle. That moment i was low on gold so i couldnt keep up with human units which left the WW pretty weak. Also some rams would have been useful.
The battle continues to be about that gold mine, also because i had taken one of his settlements to build a TC close to that mine. That area was critical for him so worth fighting for to both of us. He was abole to take down my hillfort and TC but he wasnt able to control the area and i was still sending troops.
