So i almost feel embarrased to say that i got my butt handed to me by a computer on standard. From my previous experiences with Age of Empires i would've thought I stood a better chance, yet I found myself constantly dominated in every aspect of the game. The computer had control of almost every resource and any counter i threw at him was met with a smaller force that seemed to wreck my army. I feel like maybe my way of gathering resources was inefficient or the way maybe im building wrong.
I usually start out by putting my workers half and half with food and wood, then continue to spend the rest of my food on workers till i have a decent amount. It took me a while to get to Age 2 and even longer to get to Age 3 and I gave up after that. I had one barracks towards the end i built a second, an archery range, and some other building that builds healers. also I'm playing as the Celtics, and im level 6.
