Today, I tried playing multiplayer on the computer, and miraciously, it worked! I had a game on the Great Lakes and it was truly an eye-opener!

I went for an Ancient "semi-rush". I went for Sci 1 Com 1 and filled my Wood Camp. I then proceeded to build another Farm and filled that as well. I did Mil 1 and built a Barracks, 1:59. Not bad for a beginner, considering it's the first time I rushed. I built 3 Solduri immediately, but due to my Food income being lower than my Timber, I used the excess wood to build a Granary, balancing my income. Within 4 minutes I had 7 Solduri and 4 Slingers marching at the Romans.

I ploughed in the Roman town of Baracio, with no resistance at all! Even the Citizens were cut down. I defended my new city from 1 Bowman and built a Caravan. I built the 5th Farm in my Capital and advanced in Age.

My ally, playing as the Incas had already researched Classical Age, and had a well trained army facing off the Dutch, and the Incas had the advantage, so back to my Roman conquest. I pushed on with my improved army and met a Tower, I decided that it would kill off too much of my army so I retired to Baracio, building two Towers and a foward military base, the city would soon be the bulwark that separates the Roman horde and the German homeland.

Mining operations began and my Metal was flowing in, along with Wealth (Baracio was a long way from Berlin). I built 5 Cataphracts and had my second University filled. I also built the Collosus, and still had an excess of Food left. I gave most of it to my ally.

I advanced in Age just as the huge Roman army charged at the heavily fortified city of Baracio. Legions of Roman Legions swarmed the German Barbarians and even the Bowmen weren't faring too well against this despicable spamming. A catapult emerged from nowhere and began pelting the maginificent city with rocks. I flanked it with my HC but soon they were trapped. The catapult was merely bait! I won the battle but lost my expensive Cataphracts. I was now in Medival, with my ally in late Gunpowder.

I was in bad shape, economically. The battle had taken so much micro that I had neglected growing my economy, but I had a stockpile of resources so I'd better start now. I built the Forbidden City near a mountain and upgraded my Smelters. I built more Granaries and a Lumber Mill, but not having enough resources to upgrade them.

At this point I noticed that the Roman territory was surrounding mine, so I sent my Scout north and found a small farming town, complete with 5 Farms, a Granary, and a Wood Camp. I sent part of my army there while at the same time shelling Rome(his capital) to lure the Legions to Baracio. The Keeps(full of calvary) cut them down and I captured the city of Venice. I had crippled his economy! The Roman force had also failed at Baracio, epically.

As my Trebuchets stoned Rome, the Incans were gaining ground on the Dutch and are in late Enlightment. Gunpowder was complete so I upped my Javelineers ASAP. I sent my huge army to crush Rome, but it appeared that instead of rebuilding his economy, U_AM_LaM3 decided to devote all of his resources to his military, and I was forced back, garrisoning my troops and shooting up the sorry suckers. I also placed the Red Fort in front of Baracio, so that none of those sword-wielding idiots could soil my holy city.

The Incas were in Industrial and have preformed a successful Tank rush and are crushing the Dutch. I was in late Enlightment and I sent my fully healed army and 30 Cannons to teach the Romans a lesson, razing Rome and his army to the ground before actually taking it. I then set up a defensive perimeter and all of the Roman soldiers, who were coming piecemeal, were blown off the ground before they even reached Musketeer range. He tried to lag the game but apparently failed. He died, 2 seconds before the Dutch.

Well, I guess I won the race to defeat the opponent, but I was so technologically inferior to my ally, who was in Modern Age and researching nukes. I really have to talk to him sometime but my computer failed to let me have another game online..... :P

If I had known then I would probably be playing online now. Every time I click "Gamespy Internet Matchmaking" it just reverts me back to the same menu.
