This is one of the first games where I actually beat the Hard AI, using the Loki rush. PLEASE evaluate my game, tell me any errors and give me tips on how to improve. I really appreciate it, and thx in advance!
Get hunting dogs asap, on this map its imperative. For a loki rush you need to get up at 4:40 usually. You had vills idle throughout the whole game. You need to get an oxcart for wood. The woodies were walking too far to drop off their wood. Get more eco ups, handaxe, pickaxe, shaft mine, bow saw. They may seem expensive to you but they really arent. You werent creating many villagers, 50 villagers a game is normal for a norse player, even if ure rushing. Dont hesitate to attack early on because you get free myth units from the hersir. 2 longhouses is not enough to make units from. Have einherjars on auto-que(repeat button) You had 100 favor and 1000 gold sitting in the bank doing nothing :\
Throwing axemen should not have been put on auto-que in your two longhouses. The civ match up was in your favor so its probably why you won this game.
