Hunnic 20 Knights in 20 Minutes
The reason I chose Huns was because their no house
bonus saves them wood and build time and also
their stables work 20% faster, which means I can
fit in a extra villager from the time saved.
About this strategy... Mainly aimed for team
games. It's not very useful in 1v1s as a flush
will kill this with ease. But if you were in the
pocket of a 3v3, this strategy is very powerful.
Villager 7 builds a lumbercamp at the best wood
spot you have scouted so far.
12) Lure boar
- Loom - (the later the better, if you feel
confident and can lure without loom, then you can
feel free to loom later)
Hopefully by the time the boar actually hits your
lurer, loom will be researched, depends on your
micro abilities really.
Once boar is dead, all shepherds move to boar, but
if theres still sheep, keep 1 villager on the
15) Lure second boar
Villager 16 goes to build mill near deer.
16-19) Goes to hunt deer
20) Build mill near berries
If deer and berries are close to eachother, you
won't need to build 2 mills.
After hunters have finished eating the boar, move
them to eat sheep and move 1 to wood and 1 to make
24) Build mining camp at gold
After all sheep has been consumed, use all the
shepherds to make farms around your town centre,
if stragglers are in the way, chop them first -
only make 8 farms around the town centre, any
spare villagers can move to wood. I moved my spare
villager to wood at this point, so that makes 9
31) Build barracks, and then move to gold.
~ Click Feudal ~
Recap on what we have so far:
* 9 wood cutters
* 2 foragers
* 8 farmers
* 8 miners
* 4 hunters
Once deer hunters have finished, move them to
~ During Feudal ~
As soon as you hit feudal, queue 2 villagers and
use 2 lumberjacks to make a stable, and 1 to make
~ Click Castle ~
Use the 2 stable builders to make more stables. If
you find you have too much gold compared to food,
then move 2 gold miners to berries. You want twice
as much gold than food near this point, I am not
sure why, but from my previous experiences, having
two times more gold at this point is good.
* 8 farmers
* 6 foragers
* 9 wood cutters still
* 10 miners
~ During Castle ~
Queue as much knights as possible from each
stable. Research bloodlines once 20 knights are
made. Make villagers. Once foragers are finished,
make as much farms as you can, the rest of the
foragers can move to wood. Make some more knights
for protection in town - make a few spearmen.
There was something I could of done to make it
better, I could of moved 1 wood cutter to gold
instead because I found that the house bonus saved
me so lots of wood, so if I moved 1 lumberjack to
gold, I could of got a quicker time, but still,
this build is good.
