  • A few that helped me up my game A LOT (still a beginner!):

    – Just queue new villagers to wood. At first, when told to never stop training villagers, it can get a bit overwhelming what to do with all of them. Just put them on wood, stop thinking too much about it, train more, and focus on other things. Need more food? Just grab a lot of them out of the woodline and put them on farms. Instant dozen villagers on food without needing to wait.

    – Create A LOT of military buildings. I used to just have 1 barracks, 1 archery range, 1 stable. I could never make enough military to defend myself when raided. Wood is easy to get, and you usually float thousands anyway. Instead of making 1 barracks, make 8. You'll be able to make an army instantly.

    – From feudal onwards, have a few defensive units protecting your villagers. I used to group all my army in a single place when creating them. This meant every time I was atacked they had to run all across the base to defend. By the time they got there the damage was done. By having small groups of Archers/Skirmishers/Spearmen near villagers, I can now stall the raid until reinforcements get there.

    – Once you have enough villagers (50-60%) of you max population, attack your enemies and NEVER stop making military units. Later in the game, used to just sit on my army and have them idle. Whenever I went to attack, they got killed and that was the end of it. So I had to train a whole new army back home before attacking again. This just gives your opponent a chance to recover. Instead, continously make new units, and set the gather points at the enemy base. You have a lot of resources by this point, so the units that get killed are instantly replaced by new units. (Excercise good unit selection too, of course!)

  • You can't play if you are new. If you play as a new player, you lose. Then your rating goes negative, you get kicked and can never play. Every time you try to play, your team kicks you, so you are basically banned from playing before you can start to learn.

  • I first played this game in 2000 as a 4year old. Still playing it today as a 24 year old.

  • 3. Scout your map: there is a unique button for your first explorer to do this automatically. You may also want to use 6. Command Queuing for this.
    4. Don't feel overwhelmed: be the goat in the middle of the battle.
    And forget about William Wallace a go for The Art of War.

All that existed then were websites and forums, 56k and cable modems. Cant believe there are so many ppl still playing this game, myself included. Never played a game quite like aoe

  • Hey guys!! I recently got the game because of the quarantine , this was a very wise decision 🙂
    I used to play this game more than 10 years ago, but I played it against the computer not real people. I am scared but also I feel that I would learn a lot if I play with real people. Do you have any suggestions? Tips? Advices? Of what is to come once you start playing against real people?

    Is there like a level separation that would keep me safe and won’t be killed that soon? As you can see I am a scary cat 🙁 please help!

  • When you're new, you generally end up with about 10k wood and nothing else by the 30 minute mark. Does that change whether or not you should go trade carts?

  • Need more vills? The default town center hotkey is 'H' and the default create villager hotkey is 'a'. Just type 'hahahahahaha' and you're queueing up six new villagers ('haaaaaa' works as well, but for a single town center).

  • Holyy I am so happy I bought the new version after 15+ years since I last played. The improved user-experience alone makes a great game even better.

    My playing style – set a bunch of enemies to easy on the same team vs me and defend with thousands of walls. Sometimes need to use a few cheats here or there to maintain this lavish lifestyle.

  • I use shift click with my scout to que up movement, spreading slowing out from my base in a circular or spiral pattern. It means I don't have to pay to much attention to it and frees up my time.
