Gameplay Tips And Tricks
Choose A Good Map
For your information, different maps in the game have different levels of difficulty. New to the game? Have played the game in the past but you need to brush up on your skills? Then you should stick to Black Forest, Arena and so on.
Pay Attention To Food
Food is essential in Age of Empires 2 and you don’t want to run out of food in the middle of a match. To save food, do your best to keep wastage to the minimum. For instance, meat could go bad during transportation so you should locate the point of slaughtering close to the centre of towns/cities.
Think About The Wood
You need to use wood while building all sorts of buildings in the game. Because of that, it’s a good idea to save wood for construction if possible.
Take Advantage Of Trash Units
In case you don’t know, trash units consist of units that you can make without Gold: Scouts, Spearmen, Skirmishers, etc. Use Scouts to explore the map, Spearmen to fight enemy cavalries and Skirmishers to take out enemy archers.
Build Walls Around The Base
If the population of villagers is under 12, there is no need to bother walling the base. That being said, if you have more than 12 villagers, you should wall up your base as soon as possible and the walls don’t have to be stone walls. The reason is that it’s not uncommon for enemy scouts to snipe villagers in unprotected bases. Building walls makes it easy to kill scouts and protect your economy.
Generally speaking, the Age of Empires 2 community is sociable which allows new players to find friends. Look for someone willing to play against you and get some practice in. By doing so, you could simultaneously hone your skills and have a good time.
Move Units In Box Formation
Box formation not only lets your army move quickly but also keeps weak units protected. You could switch to other formations if combat is imminent.
