examples of situation or tatics of how to make enemy think u will do 1 thing but u just make the opposite and win the game or how to surprise enemy with pop out shipment, big army size in few time, dont age up or age up, turn unit in another (strelet>musk, cross>shirm, axe rider> rifle rider) or start mass diferent cost army fast ( lb to musk, food coin to wood coin etc) been in other position of the map fast when enemy think u are in another side, stealth army ability, make different strategie from what your deck suggest, make unusual army start in colonial or fortress age... How to improve this tatic ?

Wait till his explorer comes around your TC, so make sure he is seeing it and destroy your own TC, then he will say "lol" and he will oos you, but it won't work because you will oos him first.

Or get a player to pretend that he's you, it's well known as "smurfing" a good tactic in my opinion if you know someone who is good

You already checked out Aiz's videos?
See, when spring draws to a close and flowers fall,
This is the season when beauty must ebb and fade.
The day that spring takes wing and beauty fades,
None will care for the fallen blossom or dead maid.

If you want to hide your strategy generally target the enemy explorer early on, choose a weird deck pointing towards another strategy, for example age 4 play or tower/castle spamming ( <3 @masterchif ) and do something else. It always depends on the civs involved, the current meta, the playstyle of you and your opponent and - of course - the skill difference, too.

I honestly think there's no "surprising". There's just slightly off beat strats combined with opponents not scouting or not understanding that that strat is a thing to scout for. And then theres actual surprising strategies but those are generally just straight up bad.

act as if you are afk and your villagers are idling after gathering the starting crates, wait for the enemy to pike rush you to finish the game quickly and pull out a "surprise" oos. I bet he won't expect that.

I've made a forward two rax fb in a French mirror and, when he scouted it, decided to not make a single unit from it and naked ff. Eventually he caught on and I lost my two barracks when I reached age 3 but I made him panic-ship 8 xbow and I could abuse my age 3 tech advantage for a good while. This probably isn't viable in high level gameplay but it worked with two captains.

age up with tower and make the tower + 2 raxes RIGHT IN HIS FACE, maybe make even 3 raxes for extra pressure. make sure he scouts it.

then you get 700w and schooners an go seaboom behind, with no units at all.
should be gg ez.

After a fight ransom your explorer. Your opponent will think that you'll make TC's and invest in eco. HAHA!

Pick Germans on Cascade Range and water boom. Your Indian opponent will not know what to do against this surprise

One strat that always caught me off guard was when my opponent sent Monster trucks to my TC at 10 seconds into the game. He ran over all my vills and I lost
