Great Game! Good play on both sides, with both players showing the strengths of their civilizations.

I've read NIB's forum postings, so I know he must be better than this now. While the Ra FH is fine, the attack strategy afterwards needs work. NIB neglects to continue scouting/raiding resources - just a small raid and he retreats, without even disrupting the enemy no less. This gives Odin the time he needs to wall in his resources.
Since Odin walled in 1/4 of the map, this should have been a kiss of death for him. With 3/4 of the map given freely to Ra, I would have had a builder double the walls and set up a huge trade caravan, use shifting sands to drop a raiding force behind the walls, or build a remote siege/barracks to take down a rear wall and raid.

Ah. This game was like 1 1/2 months ago when i had like 1650 rating. Of course i sucked back then. I actually thought i did good, till i recently saw it again and noticed how bad i sucked :p
0 scouting,0 initiative(waited too long), 0 raiding, 0 walling.
At least i quickly adapted when my enemy changed to huskarls and made axemen but then my enemy changed to jarls and he had like 2-3 hillforts, i had 1 midgol so i couldnt pump camels as fast as he could pump jarls so my poor axemen got raped big time.
I think i am the guy that raids the most on aom now. I dont know why, i am addicted to raiding. It really upsets my enemy when i do that. Get 5 camels, raid, fall back, send a new set of 5 camels to raid while you heal the first set and so on. Too bad now ra is nerfed and i have to play on classical(no raiding unit).
PS I really hate those damn birdies that can scout. Also i couldnt make caravans since he kept raiding me and he had good scouting.
