Do nothing but farm resources and mass villagers all the way until the Castle Age(If you're playing Skirmish)
After that, get just about every upgrade and have two of each military building.
Mass your armies and have a fun time.

NOT ENOUGH WOLOLO

the moment you think "yeah, i think that's enough villagers" is the moment you lose the game

Do villagers work in AoE 3?

Yeah okay, thanks guys, but are there any other tips? Like, what to do with those villagers?
>>
>>253280720
i did that , my enemy built a castle close to my ass and i lost like a faggit
>>
>>253281392
Early villagers rush is pretty much the online experience
>>
>>253281538
get wood and food
tons of them
>>
>>253281538
every game starts like this for me:
- hunt animals
- send lot of villagers to get wood
- if everything went ok, I can research Feudal Age
- construct a barrack
- start making farms with the wood
- make ~5 units
- send them to the enemy camp to harass villagers
>>
>>253282697
also, you absolutely need to know the perks of the civilisation you use, to play accordingly
>>
More villagers
Multiple town centers as soon as you reach castle age
Skirmishers, pikemans and light cavalry are free so you should create giant blobs of them
Build multiple military buildings next to enemy to replenish your forces as fast as you can
You can try to rush enemy as byzantium during feudal era without damaging you economy to much by spamming skirmishers
Goths can do the same with basic infantry
Reserch economic upgrades as soon as you can
Unit limit is your most important target
Spam scorpions
>>
is this an epic maymay? mass villagers is a shit tactic, you should be getting skirms out asap, with no units you'll die to feudal rushes
>>
>>253283561
>Place your buildings as a wall
>Have 2 racks and make some units to scout
>Sit back and respond if the faggot moves out

If you have shit enconomy you're begging for a loss. You don't mass shit of military unless your opponent goes full retard. If your enemy sees 5 units marching for his base and he over commit to units he'll lose in the long run.
>>
>>253283561
Still villagers.

For the feudal rush to work, the guy has to get feudal age first and create the lance throwing niggas.

If you have a strong economy, you can counter that. All RTSs come down to strong economy.

here you go, most important thing is to always keep making villagers.
>>
>>253284183
I would say for RTS that allow more or infinite workers for a resource a strong economy is almost always a win. (AoE, Starcraft)

I would say a game like Warcraft 3 isn't as extreme when it comes to the economy. Of course having 2 mining bases vs 1 is a huge advantage, but the build time + costs are extremely tall

I bought the AoE2 HD shit for like $2 on Amazon but the game is running at like 20 fps on my rig. I could play this game on my fucking 90's PC. This is bullshit.

What are some fun maps to play on with friends?

Oasis is my go-to map. The map with the large frozen lake with loads of sheep is good too (ghost lake?).

not OP, but ok... more villagers and then?

Every time I send my troops to fight the enemy I get obliterated even wtih 40 or so troops. Should I make even more?
>>
>>253287771

Viking master race.

Island hopping ftw
>>
>>253288589
You need to know what troops the enemy has, and what do you have that's effective.

I usually get harassed by cavalry early game. I spawn a few pikemen since they get a bonus against calvalry, and soon their plan is full of holes
>>
>>253286440
I always pick Black Forest

I used to play Byzantines and Mongols a lot. Aztecs too, but not as much.

You have to mix them. Also formations are important.

Shit AoE2 is fucking fun over LAN, but hell it's tough to end it or win.
Because I always send 1 villager to the corner of map and make him rebuild my empire.
>>
>>253289419

ohoho you dick
>>
>>253289419
I was thinking about doing the same with the king in Regicide. Build a tower in the corner of the map and let him be.

Spies, 3000 gold.

Plan foiled.

Just pirate the old version and install the userpatch, you'll get 60fps in singleplayer with it.

Someone post those screenshots from those /v/ AoE 2 games.

>>253288968
So RTS are basically rock, paper, scissor games in which you can spy your enemy before he shows his hand and may or may not be able to counter it depending on your economy?
>>
>>253294785
Nah, RTS without any real "randomization" is just a meta-game rush to who can become stronger the fastest. Essentially knowing how to maximize your volume times, let alone maximizing them against enemies

use your first 3 villies to build a couple of houses and max out your base food on more villies, finding the 4 sheep and 2 boars and berries are most important, second is finding the nearest gold mine.

Make about 7 villagers and task them to sheep and research loom so you can lure the boars closer to your tc without anybody dying.

takes exactly two hits with a villager to make the boars chase you, one is usually not enough, has to be two. if you still have sheep then, leave one or two on them and task the rest to the boar. you should still be making villagers and houses and when you have ~10 on food, task the next group to the nearby trees to chop enough wood for a lumber camp, a mill, and a mining camp if any of those resources are too far from your tc. after you have 10 on food, and 10 on wood, task 3 to gold and make 7 more to be tasked on food. you'll need ~6 houses to accommodate your pop.

if everything goes smoothly you should be on your way to the feudal age with a very stable economy and from there you can A: cruise on into the castle age or B: build feudal age army.

this is a very basic strategy and the more you do it, the more freedom to make variations, such as feudaling faster so you can rush in castle age, or dark age boom so you can create good defenses with resources to spare in the feaudal age.

dont bother making any soldiers in the dark age, you need all that food to make villagers

if you do it smoothly with no hangups(rarely how it goes) you can feudal in 11:30-12:00 min into the game and cruise on into the castle age by ~18:00

Can we all agree that Britons, Franks and Celts are the worst factions?
>>
>>253300880
brit players are the worst
they always have to play black forest so they can sit a million longbowmen behind walls and make the game last an eternity.
Taking longer to lose isn't any better than losing quickly. Tbh it's worse.

I always thought that those longbowmen are imbalanced and totally breaking the game.
