When I first began watching the vid I thought I was going to rate it much lower because there's little action to be had and I do believe there is room for improvement in your Thor strat, at least in early game anyway. Why do you go for berries over the two Zebra to your north and why do you never invoke Dwarven Mine, instead of straight away? I'm also not a big fan of using dwarves for anything other than gold collecting. Yes, Thor's gather wood/food faster than the other gods' but they're still slower than gatherers. I'm also not sure why you let red build two palaces right on your base without even trying to stop him.
That being said now that was the most amazing comeback I have ever seen on AOM and you single handedly prove why the Norse nomadic lifestyle wins. Congratulations to you, that was astounding.

The player you watched was not i r n00b. Ourk was one of the most skillful players ever to play aot, consistently in the top 5 with norse and zeus.
You telling him he needs to improve is quite funny, especially as he doesn't even play anymore.

You speak as if there is a level of perfection attainable at which point it is absolutely impossible to lose and you can get no better.

Well if you compare skill at aot between you and skwizz_ourk and round up I think you'd find it is infinity.

When did I ever claim to be better than him? I did not; you are putting words in my mouth in a poor attempt to support your argument. No matter you have never played me so you have no idea how good or bad I am, but for your sake I'll ignore that.
What I said was his early game could have been better and it COULD. I do not see how you could possibly deny this; if his early game were better he would not have been overrun and had to disband and regroup in the first place.

I can say with 100% confidence you are not above 1700 just by the comments you have posted.
You don't give lame tips to titled experts who dropped the game years ago.
