What is the best strategy to use on this map in a 1v1 situation?
In general 1v1 are rushing games, so you should look into rushing strategies for each civ. Some are better for that use though.
Where can I find out more about some civs rushing strategies?
You could just give it a search with your favorite search engine. In general civs that are strong and have certain advantages in feudal and castle are used. Most times rushing games won’t last to imperial age unless you got a couple of pro’s playing against each other. In other words they can be very short in a 1v1.
Some more information.
I would like to invite you to the official Age of Empires Discord Server where there are channels you can ask these questions and talk about other tactical strategies.
It depends on which civilization you are but if you’re new just try pressure your opponent as early as possible, build defensive and have some build orders down. Youtube tutorials are the fastest way to learn.
Thanks for the help guys!
Look up St4rk’s basic build order series on YouTube, by far the best guides on the internet as he explains the thought processes and aims of the builds.
Thanks for the tip. His videos are really good
