That was almost EPIC. At first, it looked as if it would be a quick kill as your opponent was consistently outproducing you in terms of both resources and population. I was surprised to see you make a comeback though. There was a point where you finally caught up to your opponent; you had 5 hippikons, 3 hoplites, and 2 heroes. If you had rushed right then, you might have won, as his entire military force consisted of a mere 3 lions at this point.
However, you failed to rush at this opportunity and his tower building strategy proved to be pretty cool; this and the similar norse forward build are effective because they provide a lot of firepower with no strain on population. However, an experienced player would have massed catapults or gastraphetes and the towers would have gone down pretty quickly. Good game!
