OK, it was rated and thanks to the help with strat I got from the forum, I managed to up at 5:19 - almost 1 min before Hades did.
Then I go for map control in the middle and start building up the place and producing RC.
Seeing that he doesn't ageup fast, I go in for an attack and he casts Sentinels. I withdraw and cast Forest Fire and take down also 1 of his houses.
Next, I have enough force and I decide to be bold and begin my assault at his base. He casts PESTILENCE and guess what -no more troop production for me. Anyways, I win the battle almost, cause there's like 6 Shades coming out of his Temple and this tilts the scale.
After that it was basically pretty much over.
What I'm asking is how to fight Hades with Thor. I figured, if I stayed at home and play cautiously, then he'd have the time to mass archers and it's gg for the Norse then.
Attacking was good and put him in the defensive, but Pestilence carried the day.
You'll see that I had a better eco than him, more vils, more money, etc. At age up (5:20), I had 12 fishing boats, 13 dwarves, 5 vils, 2 oxcarts vs his 10 fishing boats, 22 vils.
So I guess, I need help with strat since I'm OK with the rest.

The Hades player took advantage of your mistakes so its worth watching from the Hades side.
