    We have recently had some new folks asking for some help with PvP and expressed some disappointment that we don't have a lot of readily available tips and strategies. To partially correct that, I am publicly sharing a guide that I put together over the years. It is super long (95 pages single spaced) and unfinished. Also, some of the finer points are a little stale on account of some recent balance patches. However, it will still give anyone new a good head start. Apologies for the length and for it being a bit disorganized, particularly towards the end.

    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1L8_iTDHqrj-HH6yJUWMfOHZJyYSesEy9wZQXsfE2Ey8/edit?usp=sharing

    Essentially, I assembled it by grabbing advice from talented players from years ago on the forum and tried to cite them appropriately. I've always intended to finish it and polish it, but it is better off on display now than locked away. But please do chime in when you invariably find something out of place. Thanks!

    This is great stuff, lots of general and econ information that AOEO does differently to other RTS/AOE games, and so many tips on build orders and countering!

    Well done, Andy. I remember the days when I had a slight edge on you in the PvP world... these days, you mop the floor with me. It's clear you've done your homework. But now I know your secrets, so maybe I'll get back on your level soon enough! :p

    Debatable. I recall a couple months ago getting rolled by your Persians, too. And your Greeks. And you beat me last night with the Egyptians, haha. I'll get there!
