I was wondering if we could make a thread with AOE strategies. Preferably with gameplay examples.

Have you checked out our section of guides in the Academy? If you're looking to get a grasp of the most common MP strategies there is actually a lot of good stuff in there.

Great find. I will go through them over time. Also I noticed there wasn't a Greek strategy listed. Are there any good RM and DM build orders for Greeks?

Haha as far as RM goes the first rule is to never pick the Greek. No archers beyond bowman and no camels puts you in a poor seat against any CA civ. Hoplites are unlikely to do you any good unless you play against someone like Romans who also lack a decent archery range. So normally I'd say turtle a lot, and if you are forced to duke it out in Bronze go for cavalry. If you manage into Iron you have a good siege workshop which you should make use of, but honestly you are still in a bad matchup against most civs.

DM is pretty simple, you have Centys and siege, which is good enough. DM isn't so much about build orders as researching what you must and getting buildings up quickly. If you are in a team game you might be able to skip Academy entirely from the start and go entirely for a siege unit army that might be supported by Elephants or Legs from a powerful ally.

There's a great youtube channel with build orders and strategies called AoE Tips. This channel provides a lot of insight for the basics of AoE/RoR strategies.

I'm not sure if you're focused on AoE, RoR or AoE: DE because that can change your perspective of how good Greeks are. AoE, the only good civs are Assy & Yamato, no other civs compare to them.

In RoR, it's more balanced. Greeks are still one of the worst civs for RM and ok in DM because of it's access to the full siege. If you do get Greeks in RM and you are playing 1v1, 2v2 or are a flank, you should always rush with axeman or slingers. If you are a pocket player, it could vary on what you should do depending on your opponents are doing. Play with what strategy you feel your team needs or the one you feel most comfortable playing. In the bronze age, Greeks have Stone Throwers, Warships, Hoplites, Priests and Cavalry open for them, so you need to make sure you have gold or you are going full sea.

In DE, Greeks were buffed in three ways. Firstly their hoplites are cheaper, that means that if you are bronzing with Greeks, you should generally go with Hoplites. Their ships are slightly faster and now it's all ships, not just warships as it was previously. So you should be able to boom on and control waters more effectively. Finally, Academy's cost only 150 wood instead of 200, which helps in more ways than you would think. In DM, Greeks are arguably the strongest civilization in the game since previous powerhouses such as Persians, Hittite and Choson have been nerfed. This is because they have access to most iron age technologies, have a strong siege, strong priests and most importantly the best academy units in the game.

The build order for DM is very much the same and the opening comes very much down to how fast you are and then later becomes a game focused on land control. Sometimes with two strong even players, a game decided by who has the most gold. There is an informal but very informative choson build order you can read here by Mr. Bon's.

I hope this was helpful for you and if you have any more questions about strategies and build orders feel free to ask.

Maybe it's only a fool who'll perilously journey out to what might not be there. But if you want to solve problems, you don't just solve the ones that are there, you find more and make more and go after the impossible ones.
The neanderthals never ventured into the unknown and they went extinct, so who are the fools?
