Ok i started playing Aoe for 1 month.... i came from Aok.

I can beat the Pc 1vs4 in moderate easy, but i am still exploring the game.

However i see that it will take forever to reach max potential of my favorite Civ. The portuguese. because i am portuguese.

Now.... i want to know advice about which civs are easier to play with, or the best to start or the best with the latest strat that i dont know which it is.
Dont count the Spanish cause im not very fond of them and i think they are too easy to manage.

Give me some good tips to improve my gameplay


WHAT THE BLOODY BLOODY BLOODY BLOODY BLOODY BLOODY BLOODY BLOODY HELL ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT I am no Turk i am Portuguese ..... I just like to play Turk
And the 50 thousand Janissarys came upon the byzantine walls Constantinople and the byzantine empire were about to end..

Welll, i would say spain, but you obviously dont

Portuguese are pretty hard, they require ALOT of economy micro, pretty hard civ to play overall.

I started with spain, i think they are the easiest to start with, but arent used to their full potential until awhile in your skill level (not a noob civ is what im saying).

Try otto, little to none economy micro, good civ to learn basics of military with i guess.

Portugal is really hard to play (well) but they are also really fun.

Discounting the spanish...
Both the French and British are fairly easily to play, and so are the Ottomans.

Germans and Portuguese are pretty hard to use well.

Dutch and Russians are medium difficulty I guess.

Well its not that they are easy to play, its that they are easy to play compared to other civs. I like the British, they were the first Civ that I learned (my first game was against my brother using them, and I killed his germans).

They are really easy to boom with, unlike Portugals economy which takes alot of patience/skill/durabillity.

Playing British extremely well is difficuly I suppose, but not really more so than any other civ.

yer british are a bitch -_- I have a sub 50% winning percentage with them >_<.

Spain is really cool to play with, nice and straight foward, sorta really basic stuff, no dodgy banks, or mannors or weird port TC's.

Spain and Otto are probably the more straight forward civ's.
Ports are fun but they are a counter civ and are mighty hard to play well.

Yes i know that the spanish and ottomans are good.. i use them as well but i think that Portuguese arent very hard... you just have to boom a little in the discovery and in the colonial depending of what you have done you can kick ass.... but if you say so, i think that in hard or expert that changes.


As for the british their play is as hard as the portuguese in my vision...

And in later game i think that HCannor can beat Rocket

As for germans... when i started the game i could win with them easy on moderate vs4 but after my holidays i cant seem to win with them and they have become awful hard.

The french are the only that i cant use properly cause i sttubornly make the mistake of only use cuirasseirs with skirms and artillery

That's not how Ottomans are played on line. The first building is usually a trading post, then a barracks as near the enemy town as possible. Age up to Colonial by at latest 4 minutes, send 5 janissary shipment, build 10 more janissaries at the barracks and attack, at about 6 minutes. Probably the enemy will have something like 8 crossbowmen and 1 outpost to defend; the janissaries easily beat them. Next shipment 3 hussars, which go looking for stray villagers, and janissaries constantly coming out of the barracks.

The non-stop stream of janissaries is hard to stop. However, if the rush fails low-level Ottoman players tend to give up - they've spent enormous quantities of food on janissaries, are capped at 25 settlers and are overtaken by their opponents.

That's my experience, having played against Ottomans about ten times, and it's borne out by comments on these forums from lots of other players. It seems similar at the higher skill levels, except for the bit about giving up if the rush fails!

It strikes me as a very boring way to play, far too stereotyped, and I won't use Ottomans because of that. I've tried Dutch and Spanish, and am debating British or Portuguese next.

Choose portuguese instead of british as they are not so steryotyped as the british as i heard in the forum...
Because of Longs...


As for the ottoman you are probably right but i am still in a level 7 HC and i win using that Vs the Pc
