    I am at a complete loss how to improve in this game? i cant find coop partners because im not skilled so most of the legendary quests are not accessible for me , i still have every leg quest in game not attainable,. i have watched countless videos but when i play i get waves of enemies relentlessly with no break in between and get crushed, i even tried the new zabol quests normal not elite not leg and it was like incursion on steroids, the persian ai i counted had almost sent 100 archers and immortal at me within 5 mins of starting ( the quest where you can send resources to friendly ai on other side of gate) i tried walls/towers, tried spamming hypas but just couldnt stem the tide lol ..please someone tell me this quest is harder than usual . i love this game and played it a long time and im so demoralized i just cant see how to enjoy this any more. all the content is aimed at high skill players , because even the normal quests in zabol are ridicilous. the enemy comes at you with huge forces so early its insane, obviously balanced around all the top players getting a full economy within 5 mins. that will never be me as im too slow and i try to get faster but i just cant click multiple things at once, i suck at that. does it get easier coop?? no idea ..all the videos i see dont seem to get the same early wave hordes like i get, no idea what i do wrong. a few people have added as fiends but never really available to coop, i even have all the lower level quests that are coop only in my q log and cant get them done, i need help.

    please dont take this as criticism at devs they have done a great job , and its great they still add content , i loved the norse quest line that was added, i just cant work out how to improve :(

    Don't worry, i think it's normal to have trouble getting into legs.
    It took me months after leveling 6 civs to 40 to start to be at ease doing my small selection of well known leg quests.
    To improve, you have to play more games, more games and more games and add some more games to that. l hope you like to play games, because it is the mean and the end of this game.
    After years of playing I still see many mistakes and bad habits into my plays each games and I still learn new things.
    Don't give up. Don't be afraid to lose games. Just start over and learn something to add to your arsenal of strategies each times.

    well,

    have you seen the tutorial of sais ? this one is really doable

    also, my little advices :

    - do massive use of hotkeys

    - pay attention to the configuration of milestones as it gives a big boost.

    since the game is repeatable
    you just have to remember your mistakes and correct them. you certainly capable of that :)

    Learning how to be faster and efficient as nothing to do with the quests in the og game. Most of us played a bunch to improve mecanicaly and strategicaly It's hard to improve with old content even if campains help a bit. Best way is coop to have a security bag skirmish and pvp i guess + sparta training quests.

    As far as your issue to find coop you can ask in the game chat for help or join someone looking for some, also ask for help or coop on discord in talk pve but also in your language channel if you are not english.

    There are plenty of "skilled" players who are constantly looking for coop partners for legendary quests. Some of them just need a player to hold their own while they pretty much solo the quest. Try messaging players who are looking for partners in the LFG tab, simply tell them if they dont mind you joining in. Most players are ok with "carrying" others =)

    I know how you feel, I'm feeling the same things too. After maxing out each civilization, I started doing the new missions in Zabol. The legendaries I don't even try remotely, so I thought I'd do the ones in the "Champion Mode" version, thinking that I wouldn't be at a disadvantage compared to the AI ... Obviously I thought badly, a lot ... I took down all the saints in heaven, but they managed to complete them, except the one "My Brother's Keeper" that I have been trying for days but nothing, even if I manage to take out an opponent the first few minutes of the game, I am completely submerged in the last 10 minutes of the game by the other 3 opponents .. The level of frustration reached is quite high and in fact I have started to play less and less, I would like to get this mission out of the way so as to complete the global mission and give it a break with this mode.

    Watching the videos online, there are some really good people capable of doing multiple actions at once, or for the legendary level they are equipped so well that the enemies are not even a problem. I will never reach those levels, also because I do not like this way of playing, I am someone who wants to do things calmly and deeply hates the fact that "high difficulty level = AI that spills endless units on you". It feels like playing Total Annihilation, where it all comes down to who makes the most mass of units on the other. I don't find it funny, I don't even find it challenging as gameplay the fact that it all boils down to who can field more troops than the opponent. Even less amusing I find the fact that the AI doesn't let you breathe and attacks you en masse after the first few minutes of play.

    The example I had with the mission "Turanian Trouble", where after an hour of play I was completely stalled on the defensive and I could not move, with the opponents that gave me no respite. Then I remembered the videos I had seen, where players only trained the first basic warrior, en masse. I am someone who likes to make a mixed army, then go on the attack .. Instead the only strategy in these missions is just this. So I also started making barracks to produce the first base soldier and in the end I managed to finish it, where everything was reduced to one simple thing: making more units per minute than the opponent. POINT. It was neither fun nor satisfying. But if that's what it's like to play at a high level, then thank you but no thank you. I liked the experience on this game so far, but it will end here I'm afraid ..

    On some quests, i build 20 military buildings, assign them to a group key and produce the units in continue.

    I'm afraid this is the mechanic of the game.

    i don't have problem with that . but that certainly can be unentertaining for some.

    Again, using the hotkeys make the game easier as it spares a LOT of time
