    Subject: Standard Build Order

    What is a standard build order for AoE II?

    To give you an example of what I am talking about, in Age of Empires III a standard build order is:
    --Gather 800 Food
    --Train 12-15 villagers
    --Build a House
    --Build Market/TP

    You know, the common knowledge that everyone should know and do.  Every civilization is different, but generally they all share similar starting builds.  What is the standard build order for AoE II.

    For me its like 15 vills, a mill near forage bushes, and 2-3 houses. All vills on food except for 2 on wood.

     

    Im a total nub at AoK, and didnt play it online much, so idk how fast this is, or if its completely wrong. All i know is it works for me.

    First put up the A. Send your gatherers to gather the o and bring it there with your scout. Put up the Ao, and advanche to E. Find two I's from the map, capture them, and put them to the line.

     

    note: if enemy tries to interrupt, use either:

    a) m110e's 18 min dutch ff

    b) ransack_ug's death trap

    i usually just make 16 villagers(Age 1), Age up and make a few tower(s) for line of sight(Age 2)

    Then i make around 5-6 militia and/or 5-6 archers/skirmishers.After this, i keep making villagers and aging up as i get resources and i also make more units. Age 1: Loom is important and make sure your mills(Bushes) and farms are well guarded

    Edit: Takes around 18-24 minutes to set up, if you use watch towers place them on cliffs so they cant get attacked that easily.

    Edit 2:  Also make 3 houses in age 1 like hunter said, but i put more on wood. And don't forget lumber/mining camps in age 2 make towers near these for garrison if needed. This strategy works for most civilizations i play with.
