    Subject: Aztec "ZAP" Rush

    Hey.  This is the largely unknown aztec big button rush invented by F1RE_FLY.  I have no idea why it's unknown cause its the most freaking awesome strategy on the face of the earth.  But before I begin, let me alert you that this rush only works on TWC, due to the fact that the 6/12 jaguar warrior big button upgrades were removed on TAD.

    Age 1:  Gather all crates except for coin with 2 villagers; the rest herd huntables.  Build 2 houses and a fire pit as soon as you can.  When they are finished, put the builder on food as well.  Send the warrior priest on the fire pit and perform the XP dance the entire game.  THIS IS ESSENTIAL TO THE RUSH.  If you don't, you will not win the game.  The explorer should go around gathering treasures and converting a miniature army of guardians.  Make sure he doesn't die, as he is very useful in the battle.  Your first card should be 3 villies.  Age with 16 (17 population (the WP takes up one too) on the fast aging politician.  As you age, send 12 of your villagers onto coin and leave the rest on food.

    Age 2:  You should have at least one shipment by now.  Ship 10 maceualtins.  As the maceualtins ship, train a villager onto food for a total of 5.  By the time the maceualtins arrive, you should have 500 coin for 11 rodelero shipment.  By the time THAT one arrives you should have 450 food for first TC big button.  Have your explorer and his army meet the soldiers ad the enemy town.  Attack with 11 rodeleros, 3 jaguar warriors, 10 macehualtins, guardians, and the XP doubling explorer.  The time should be arround 5:30-6:00.  While the attack is happening, ship 9 "ZAP"otec warriors for 500 coin.  After you click this shipment, set some villagers on foor "for a 10 food 7 gold ratio).  As the shipment arrives, you should be able to click the next big button for 450 coin and 450 food.  Keep up the rush- dont build a WH.  After you click the big button, change some villies onto wood (the last big button).  Next shipment is 5 jaguars (they are actually pretty strong, and have no counter).  After this arrives, send all off coin for an eventual forward warhut and some houses.  Send the last big button for 12 jaguar warriors.  This is usually a game finisher, but if it is not, ship 9 maceualtins or 6 puma spearmen and train maces and coyote runners from your warhut.

    "This is an all-or-nothing strategy, so have fun when you win (all of the time, right?) and don't get too mad if you lose"  - F1RE_FLY

    I dont understand why so many people rush with aztec.  They can get a good 10 preist boom and awesome latecolonial/age3 with jags eagles skulls and coys.  I guess this is a fun strat but just seems so easy to beat :/ the rod and zaps are not that good and ur eco will sux.  Typically aztec should 3vil, 3preist, units/5vil and once u got a nice mass and full pit they attk.

    Aoe3 forever. R.I.P. Agecomm and thanks for the great memories :) 12/10/13

    This strategy focuses on a quick army of elite units rather than a good economy... it is able to beat most civs and most people.  What you said about the 10 priests would be good, in say a 10-20 minute TR: this is rush.  Plus, I love ending most games (even with capt+) in 5-10 minutes

    SecretShogun... seriously this strategy is very, very hard to beat.  I've lost like 10 games out of like 300 with them... and believe me, I dont like playing noobs.  It is also adaptable; 5 coyote runners instead of 10 maces, 6 spearmen instad of jaguars.  Believe me, Fire Fly was pro and if you use his strats you can be too

    aztec can easily stall and raid until 10+ mins to get preists and if ur enemy pushes b4 then just switch pit to faster production and ship some units.  A game should never from 5-7 mins unless u are iro or playing vs nubs. It is even rare for a game to end 7-9mins

    Well, it just so happens that this strategy works THAT well.  I've felled MSs, LTs, and yes, even Captains with this strat in as little as 8 minutes.  Why dont you just try it out instead of arguing with me?

    not to be mean or anything but it suxx :( i would never lose to this with my main civ. I would just ship 8 bow call Mm make 5 uhlan and use settler wagon to fight it off. Once u go back i raid u with 3 ctrl groups of uhlan :) and yes u can beat some caps but they are nubs usually. Caps just know basics of macro and stuff but compared to players my level they just look like nubs

    ...and that's all? Seriously? I've faced sergeants who could do better.  Rods on Xbow, Jaguar warriors on uhlans, and maces on MM.  I have faced so much harder, Shogun.  And it's faster than you might think.  If you dont believe me, come face me some time.

    5 uhlan 8 bow and 6 mm is with a eco build/semi ff where you send the 8 bows if being rushed.. Of course you can get more if you're doing a pointless little rush.

    Rushing with aztecs and sending unit cards asap has been known for along time. They have much better warrior priest builds which are much better in different situations, and can transition into many builds as well. Rushing is so overrated.

    You know what? I dont care what you ppl say, cause this strat works great for me. Go ahead.  Miss out, see if I care... lolz.  I posted this for people who might want a new strat, apparently you don't. So seriously.  Either try it out or stop making random derrogatory comments. Thanks.

    No I don't want to know this "new" strat, nor would I want others to see and think its "the best strat in the world". Rushing is overrated and doesn't teach one anything, go ahead and keep doing this strat. At some point while you progress through the ranks you're vs, this strat will come around and slap you in the face and become unviable, and you will have to start over again trying to understand how to actually play.

    gg no re.
