Excellent on the part of the Greek Player. The Norse Player was pretty good, but he didn't *adjust* to what the Greek player was throwing at him (Toxotes). I would've done two things if I were Norse: Generate Cav, and also Ulfsarks. Had he done that he would have made his Toxotes pay a higher price.

The Norse player pulled off a very good Loki Hersir, rush, but, like other reviewers before me on this file, he should have adapted to changes in unit usage more.

obviously, hope ran out of gold.
from both perspectives there is a hidden gold mine on the left of the screen. i think if hope saw this gold mine hope would've noticed 2 goldmines close together and defended that area better giving hope a better chance of winning the game.
i also wonder if hope didn't underestimate the opponent marginally? there was a critical moment in the game when source and hope both brought a huge army to the other's base without noticing the other army... the deciding factor seemed to be that source's army hit hope's last gold mine (seemed a bit lucky to me) while hope was eventually forced to come back and defend with a weakened army.
i think that maybe if source finished scouting the map and controlled the area with 2 gold mines it would've been a different story. hope was the better player, imo.
seems like hope realized too late that the gold was all gone. quite a shocker.

oops... i meant if hope found and controlled the 2 gold mine area...
