Civ by civ guide from the masterz?

We have an extremely good guide from Goodspeed, by far the best out there, and it covers everything from each civ's BO's, scouting, timings, and much more. However, altough he covers a lot about every civ [strike]Sioux,[/strike] Goodspeed does not go as deep as some might like into each civ's little .....

Great tips for big noobs to get from zero to hero

Watch casted games between high level players, that's where I learned probably 60% of ALL i know. I watched Veni's videos on the PK clna tournament, you can find them on his youtube channel they are over a year old.

Map Suggestion Thread

I think this map accomplishes what most Aoe players are looking for in a water map, and makes water play really enjoying to watch.
The map is about half land, half water. Resources on land are scarce as well, maybe 1 silver mine and 2 deer herds for each player along with a few berries, and players .....

How can Japan beat India?

If you don't make walls or send CM, they just coe to your base and destroy you with 5 sepoy 4 sowar shipments. If you DO make walls or send CM, they just run around sieging shrines, and you just get really outmassed later. How should this MU be played, and which civ is supposed to win it?

Early colonial skirms vs xbows?

Some high-level players believe that in early colonial situations, having access to bows is more valuable than access to skirmishers. What do you think?

Advantages of bows:
1) Less train time
2) More base damage
3) More massable with 700w 600w
4) You make rax faster because you gather wood in transition .....

He chooses not to buy 100w with the coin but to chop 150w instead. I think I'v .....
