GG. The map is Marsh and I am Loki. The first fight starts between me and red Isis. I am kinda POed that an Egyptian came close to me instead of the other guys. Well, I spam TA and some hersirs. I manage to rape his small army but I beared in mind the fact he is a better player than me (his score was a bit over mine though he was Isis). He goes priest/axemen/slingers but I manage to keep distances and I build a TC in the gap between us :D . I still own the fights for quite a moment till we are both in Mythic. A little doubling from teal didn't work but to destroy my TC which I rebuilt instantly. The problem starts when he gets totally chariots then I have to make hills and start pumping husks. Though I manage to get around 25, his pharaoh rapes my army while I am preoccupied with killing chariots. The tides turn on me and I have 4 dozens chariots coming through my TC. I resign knowing my fate but still, I was very proud of the nice game :)
Plz tell me any ways I can improve my gaming since I do some flaws. Remember: red was quite good I think he was a 17++ in a new account. You tell me XD
sorry not to have noted that his pharaoh was son of osiris
god of myths

well I know but vs a good egyptian, a Loki has totally no chance :( Plus all I want is a pro to tell me what is wrong or where I had some flaws

You had this game easy dude. Here's the list of things u need to work on:
1. Your archaic BO(Build Order) should never consist of just gatherers. You could have rushed the eggy and prob won in the first 10 min. of the game with a better BO.
2.The only reason he was able to turn it on u so many times is because u were so predictable (TA's, Hersirs, rpt., rpt.)
3. When u hit Heroic u didn't build a Hillfort for like 10 mins after that. And when u did build a Hillfort u just pumped out Huskarls. HF's are essential to beating an eggy in a late game.
4. At one point in the game u had him beat easily but u just didn't micro your units and u didn't adapt to take down his base (This was the point late in the game where u had no Hillforts).
5. And finally, you never built jarls or seige which would have ended the game about 20 mins in if u would have had Hillforts at that time.
Loki vs. Eggy is never an easy game but if u play it right Loki>Eggy easily. It's all about the right units. Jarls/Cav are essential to winning against almost any civ. When u have the army advantage (you've killed most of there army) mix seige in to take down the base and it's prob GG.
I can post some games of me vs. Eggy's with Loki if u like. Just let me know.
