I don't claim to be the best DM'er out there, but in the last couple days I beat some DM'ers who claimed they were expert. (They couldn't have been)

Opening DM is like RM in that you need a good building pattern. This is what I do and seems to work fine.

Opening move vill 1 BE and vill 2-3 BN,BN,BN
Make 20 vills in each TC

Have a couple do housing behind your base. Don't group houses all together.

Have a couple do technology buildings like market, gov center, granary, and storage pits by TC.

Assign a group of villagers to start staking out military buildings. Don't stake really close to your base. Give yourself some room.

Assign a group of villagers to start towering.

The primary unit in DM's is the Armored Ele. Learn how to use it and kill it to survive and win.

I will always make at least ten priests. Number them and use to convert Armored Eles. Make your opponent have to make more than that one unit.

If your going with Cats, have big groups of them (20+) to be effective at all against a field full of Eles.

Get your economy leveled off between 90-110 vills and make sure you have lots on farms. Food is usually what runs out first unless you go heavy on dual seige.

CenturionZ_1:

I'm confused?

You complain because nobody talks about DM, yet here is a thread about it. Shiny asks for some ideas, strats, (anything) about DM and that is all you can come up with?

I guess that is all there is to DM's then.

MASS FORWARD BUILDING

No need to ever talk about DM's again if that is all you have to say.

Mass forward building isn't that great I mean ya for offense but rushing has proven t be very difficult for me. they already have units coming out of 20-40 buildings by the time u start essentially putting you behind.

Well if you're ele rushing, you should build ur stables near the middle of the map. Build like 20-30 stables and pump ellies from all of them.

Sorry Blitz, just in a rush. Firstly, you have to mass build villagers and try to hold every gold mine there is. Cover the map with your military buildings and after your pop hit >100 attack. Then hope...
