4th link. There's no rule on what hotkeys are good, but I personally hate a lot of the default hotkeys.

Example: default hotkey is p for palisade. If you need to wall something off in a jiffy, reaching for the P key can screw you over.

I made a quick video to demonstrate why it's useful to be able to wall quickly.

No way. Trebuchets are really useful in imperial age.

Watched a few videos and didn't see a single one so I was curious, nor the few games I've played there weren't one to be seen, cause from where I stood trebuchet is what helps me win games. They'll tear up the battlefield while I protect them. I'll use those cannoneers instead if I play civ that uses them.


I play some. I actually LAN a lot, but, I'm a padawan compared to some of the people I play against.

I havn't been back to this game, but I will improve my speed and play style. I **** my buddies playing as the goth with the huskarles, but, I either need to learn to play to their strength or find a different civ?

goths have one big strength, which is cheap infantry spamming. If you want to make something besides infantry, I advise you use a different civilization. You can sort of figure out what civilizations specialize in by looking at their unique bonuses, their available technologies, and their unique unit.

As a rule, every civ's unique unit correlates with one of the civ's strengths. For example, Britons get longbowmen, and the Britons specialize in archers. Huns get tarkans (which suck), and are a cavalry civilization.

Pretty much what I do when I play my buddies is build barracks in random places, so as my unit dies, they're replaced a second later, and when I get enough unit I storm from three different sides, thanks to the double number tapping to zoom in on parties. Goes on until I run out of gold, but most of time I win first. I think right now i just need to focus on strength and have faith in my civ.
