I had no hunting (which is normal on oasis) and ended up finding out teal started out with 4 girraffes and some gazelles and knew that if he would hunt and not me I would most likely lose. I made my temple right next to the hunting spot and scouted out his temple that was right on it with my hersir. I made a mostly gold eco for dwarves since I knew I wouldnt have food for a while with what I was going to do. I sent my food gathers to attack his hunters to try to obtain the area and since I advanced a little earlier than him I managed to win it. After that I kept getting doubled and even got double frost. Kept on going and ended up winning after some fighting. I'm really out of practice because I didnt even get any armory upgrades tell late heroic.
