Well let's look at it this way:
Byshon makes a trading post in age 1 using the 400 wood start like all ottos should do. Then he herds his bison well and has them safely next to his town center. He Fast Fortresses and brings out abus. He makes a lot of mistakes microing the abus but makes up for it later with spahi. He kills your army and raids you until it's pretty much over for you with these spahi.
On your side: You don't make a trading post age 1. Herd poorly. Find yourself with a terrible economy(no trading post) barely able to produce constant janissaries. And you don't have any food at the end because you didn't herd the hunts back towards your town center. You were also very slow with getting your army set up...which is the main advantage of staying in colonial.
Hope that helped.:)

Thank you very much for this comment my friend. I didn't build a TC because I sold the wood in the market for win food to go to the 2nd age earlier. But I think I should build a TC. My creeping is very poor, and has slows down my passage to age II. I do not know if I would have to wait to mass a little more my army, in spite of his FF. I don't have any food at the end because I didn't herd the hunts back towards my town center, you're right. I will change this.
Thank you for your help.
