Hi,

I've just got this game today (AOE AOK With Conquerers) after a friend was begging me to get it cause noone would play him online at it. Thing is...i played him and he ragged my ass. I suck at this game!

Has anyone got any tips or strategies for me that i can use?

I've searched the forums and found nothing so i made this post. I've also looked on google but couldn't really find anything.

Thanks
Flap it and enjoy yourself...

Go to the community section and read the guides. When I played that game seriously that website helped me sooooo much.

I used to play that game all the time! I was a beast..

Make sure you build houses and a lot of them
Make sure you make mines, mills, and farms for food/gold/etc. ASAP
Build a barracks as soon as you can, as well as the other building like it
Age up as soon as possible
Build walls
Build castles, and a lot of them

I played that game back in like, 6th and 7th grade

The best people are the Huns, just focus on food and making as many of those special Hun troops, and as soon as you can, raze the enemy's town center. If he can't build a new one yet, he's done

Lots of villagers helps.
Don't necessarily focus on technology upgrades. Tempting, but you won't have enough people to defend yourself and you'll get your ass kicked. Upgrade yes, but make sure you have a solid defensive army. They'll improve as you upgrade as well.
Leave non-essential upgrades until you have lots of spare thing. If you don't intend to build lots of archers/boats, don't spend a lot of resources upgrading those things.
Try picking a civilisation that suits your playing style (if you know what it is).

when i stopped playing that game like 4 years ago, one of the most popular tactic was the mayan flush (FeudaL rUSH). Look this up on the web and you should be able to whip his as*. It might take some practice to "master" this strategy but youll get it.

I have all three and I prefer AOE:II. Three just isn't as good IMO.

Or play the star wars version, it pwns ass.

Sometimes I would spam the hell out of War Elephants. They're strong as hell but the major downside to this is cost. Elephants cost tons of food and gold to create.

That's only on the original AOE I think. And yes it is entertaining.


^And cannons beat trebuchets. Cannons can move and don't get bitched so easily. Although if you play as the Japanese, trebuchets are probably better as they can research something which makes them pack/unpack in like 2 seconds.

Wasn't there a cheat to make a naked little guy who could run REALLY fast? The car with the rocket launcher was a laugh too!

My tips would be focus on recourse gathering and villages for the first age or two. Make sure to build up your land's defences with walls, gates and towers (tower +10 longbowmen inside = death machine). Don't forget the cheap wooden walls either, without siege equipment, these will slow your enemy greatly and alert you to their presence, especially useful in the first age or so. As meths said, don't worry too much about upgrades, focus on numbers of troops.

Go there but it's a shame that the online game has become such a disappointment.

Basically it's been played to the point where there is a strategy called the flush which cannot be beaten. It's tough to pull off as it requires precision and perfect time conservation and in all honesty is a chore to perform efficiently but everybody uses it and the only counter to a flush is a better flush, and so you have no choice but to use it.

It's a shame because the game is so good, but online you have no choice but to rush and the amount of second saving clicks you need is boring to me.

agreed, would be nice if they re-mastered AOE 2, so it had AOE 3's graphics....
