Age Of Empires 2: The Age Of Kings
Hint: More bases advantage:
To have a better chance of winning, you might want
to build more than one base. Enlarge the base you start out with,
making it completely fortified with at least two castles. Then,
send a scout cavalry, or some other fast moving unit, to the opposite
side of the map from your base. After you have checked the area
and confirmed that it is safe, send a villager to build a castle
at that location and fortify that base. This is very helpful if
your enemy knows where one of your bases are located, especially
during online play.
Hint: Save resources:
When you are allies with others, do not build a market
to avoid giving them resources.
Hint: Explore enemy territory without being
Advance to the Feudal age, build a Market, then create
a Trade Cart. Use the Trade Cart to safely explore your opponent's
territory. If your opponent is neutral, they will not harm the
Trade Cart. Another trick is to create several Trade Carts and
place them evenly across your opponent's area to see everything
they are doing, without having to spend several thousand gold
to research Spies/Treason.
Hint: Build faster:
Continuously select the icon next to the percentage.
Hint: Saving your villagers:
Use the following trick to keep your villagers alive
while hunting boars. If you are in the Castle Age, create some
monks and place them near the villagers as the kill the boar.
The monk will continue to replenish the villagers' health as they
kill the boar.
If your villagers are building a castle or tower in enemy territory
that takes time, send many villagers to build a small tower that
can be constructed easily. After that is built, build your castle
and if anyone attacks you, you can either go to the tower, or
the tower can shoot at them and the enemy will not harm you.
Play in deathmatch mode and choose the Vikings. Instead
of having Berserkers, they will have Barbarians.
