Hi, I am new to online AOM.
I have played around 20 games. I won and lost half of them and my rating is around 1550.
I had a hard time when playing with Zeus against Norse. I just don't know what they will do.
Sometimes they raid early and I am still building a military academy. Sometimes they came with lots of Hersir hero or mythic giants which hurts me badly.
Most of the time I would lose the game if I couldn't withstand the early rush and they destroyed my production buildings.
In this game I think my opponent sacrifices some of his economies to make an early raiding. Although we won at last, I think I would lose if he attacked me first.
Please teach me how to cope with this kind of opponent and tell me what I'm doing right or wrong in the game. It would be great if you could give me some advice so that I could improve myself.
1. Put on the REPEAT button when yo are training your villigers at the TOWN CENTRE.
2. Research HUNTING DOGS at you first GRANARY if there is more then 600 worth of food around you, ALWAYS research HUNTING DOGS on maps like TUNDRA!
3. Put a RALLY POINT to each resource..short-cut right click on something for RALLY POINT.
4. You need more on WOOD atleast 6 i would say. And more on GOLD also i would say 8. But food is 6-8.
5. Always check you IDLE VILLIGER BANNER!
6. Make a house or two as soon as you ADVANCE because the military units will max it out quickly.
7. Make more then three MILITARY BUILDINGS, I make 6 and more when i get a forward TOWN CENTRE.
8. Only do the MEDIUM research when you have more then 30 units, trust me its cheaper.
9. Your resources aer of no use sitting in the bank..Use them ASAP put the REPEAT button on the MILITARY BUILDINGS.
10. ALWAYS scout for enemy gold miners..without gold you can't do anything. if their army is by the gold mines - RUN!
11. Upgrade your towers..they are your last defence when enemy enter your base..
12. If you see ur enemys army and there is a villiger nearby kill the villigers first..If he runs to his TOWN CENTER don't be a fool and follow him..Fall Back and harras his villigers.
13. Other then these your are EXCELLENT! I'm a 1675 ,HOPE YOU GOT SOME ADVICE AND GET BETTER!

Good human combo+siege will make it much easier. You have hoplite+toxotes which is already a good combo, add some catapult will be perfect! Siege is the key point in the game.
Q: You see how easy your ally can raze the enemies town?
A: He has Scarabs.
Q: Why the yellow cant take you down even when he has 4 TCs?
A: He has no siege.
Watch this game again, but this time pay close attention to your ally, that will help much.
