The Game

I played this game last night. I started out raiding and killing many of his villagers with my 10 musketeers but then something weird happened. After defeating all my musketeers, he walled off the ENTIRE map. I was walled into a corner and was left with only about 1/3 of the map to me. After this...he did an AMAZING boom and amassed 99 villagers within about 15 minutes. Then he got to the Imperial Age within 25 minutes. He came at me at about 30 minutes with a fully upgraded Imperial army with me still stuck in the Industrial Age. I was obviously having trouble with my economy because the entire map was cut off from me and without the map I had no gold or food.

So the moral of this story is:
Don't let your opponents wall up the entire map. He had it all walled by about the 10 minute mark....

But the fact he got an Imperial Age time in under 25 minutes astounded me.

I usually hit Imperial around 40 minutes IF the game has gone on that long (which I try to avoid).

Most good players will age up to level 5 within 20 to 22 minutes. They will have 2 factories going within 24 minutes and Imper Germs by 25 minutes. By 26 minutes they will have 30 vills, 3,000 coin and meat, 500 wood. At 28 minute they will spawn out instant Imper. Germs. at will. I usually play 3 v 3 nr 30 nb on large great plains and we own the map at 30 minutes. When we rush I have 30 Imper. germs with 1080 hitpoints. Most season players will be age 5 in 20 minutes, the fastest I've ever done it was 21 minutes and 19 seconds.

@pookcur: this isn't about a treaty game

@OpenWar: Brit can boom enormously well if let alone. You should have tried to get through the wall I guess. If you let him build such a wall it's your fault you're lost.

To be honest you should have been kind of.. suspicious about a 7 minute colonial time.

yes, if you let him build walls, after raiding... and why didn't you defeat him? if you were raiding with musks, you should have rushed his base...
