Nice battle between RA and Loki. Loki survives and continues to play (and even reaches to heroic) even though I crushed his forward base. Surprised im using RA? (still rookie with Egyptians, but planning to get much better, still amazed that I can get to and stay at 1800s with my newbie RA self) *applause*
Enjoy the game though, it is pretty fun to watch me survive that crazy rush, it is pretty fun to watch him try to fight back (amazed he lasted pretty well). I assume hed resign after all those Barracks and Houses and Armory I destroyed, as well as pushing back his gold mining team. But he survives!
Ok you are still learning ra, but this is a bad game. 7+ min classical against loki and you managed to survive? Damn your enemy must be using loki for the first time too.
Massing axemen while your enemy had mainly rcs and like 2-3 hersirs? I understand that you want those hersirs down fast so that they wont summon any mus but you should have made mainly spearmen. Make at least 3 barracks or even 4. They are extremely cheap and can make a difference.
As you might noticed wood is extremely useless for egyptians, unlike gold.
Use temple/armory to 'wall' your towers even more.
No fighting on the sea :(. He was using loki and it was a sea map but he didnt make any arrow ships. Interesting. I guess he didnt take advantage of loki's sea bug.
You are lucky your enemy resigned. He had superior economy and he could make a comeback easily(tons of resources unused).

I noticed that too about the axemen. You should have had way way way more spearman, overall not a terrible game though.
