It is usually pretty hard to find a (non-expert) zone game with the settings:

1) no reveal map
2) default resources

These are the settings that I practice with.

But if I want to play with humans then usually I have to accept:

1) reveal map (blech)
2) medium or high resources (double blech)

I found that when you get into these kinds of games then the strategies that have been posted here lately tend to break down.

When to tool? How may vils to make during each age? When to bronze? What to do with those extra resources? What attack/defense strategies to use, etc...

Comments?

To get the noreveal, 1.0 it's best to be the host and post clearly the settings in the game room.

Reveal map just screams for attacking enemy villagers early and fast. All the time saved scouting/revealing the map and walling....get your villie builders over there fast (before he walls) and kill-TOOL his hunters/berrie dUdEs and wood choppers.

I'm with Tenaciti. Host your own game with the settings that you feel most familar with. If you aren't comfortable playing against good intermediate and expert players, title the game Real Rookies Only or something like that. If you recognize the name to the player as an expert, ask him or her to leave, if he or she doesn't...boot em. Black map and def res are the only settings you can really judge your progression by. So keep playing them, however you can.

I hate reveal map. I hate non-default resources.

But I also want to play...

When you try to host no reveal/default res games a lot of times you can wait for an eternity for players to join. Most beginners don't want to play with the default settings and most of them won't go into your room if they see: "Rooks only, no reveal, default res".
