Trying to win against three civs on "Random","Hill Country" on "hard. When they come, they come fast and hard and I can't get enough resources to finish my defenses and/or go up to the next "age" to make my towers stronger. I'm Persian. Also, just for fun I tried to fight against two civs on "hardest" and was wipe off the map before I could even warmed up the seat I was sitting on. Can anyone win on this level?

Has anyone won on hardest? I doubt it. I sort of did once, as after about 20 minutes my town was in ruins so i typed in "reveal map" etc to see his town. A thought came into my head whereby i built 101 compies and marched right into his backyard. Splat etc... But that's cheating so it doesn't count.

Winning against multiple computer opponents with the difficulty set on 'hardest' is tricky, but not impossible. Here are a few hits....

Spread out quickly. Get multiple wood pits/gold pits early. Protect them with towers and troops (scouts & bowman). Wall of shallows and choke points (after a while try beating the comp on hardest without walling....it's more fun!).

Watch the timeline to determine who is going to attack you first.

Scout like a madman. Once you make it to bronze, get a govt center up quickly so that you can start placing TC's all over the map.


good luck!

(I can beat 7 comp opponents on hard and 4 on hardest)((at least i used to be able to))

You are apparently in Tool when they hit, based on the fact you mention that you need to go up an age to "upgrade" your towers. I really don't remember what/when they hit in "hard", but yes, there are many who can defeat 7 hard, and some who can beat 7 hardest, without even using walls.

Most everything is more tailored for player vs. player, but here's a link to strategies and starts that are quite informative. Practice them and you should find the computer fairly easy to beat.


Alternatively, go on-line and play there. You will learn fewer bad habits, and there are a bunch of people who are more than willing to show you the ropes. Check out Scarab's APC thread for a list of just some of the guys in white hats.

Keep your stick on the ice.

I can take out 4 computer opponants on hardest, probably more, but I havent even tried in such a long time. Last time I tried was about 8 months ago.
