Rush strategy?
Since googling for strategies employed for a 14 year old game is futile, i'll put it here:

I've got some questions related to rushing, like:
Best civilization to rush with?
At what age do you start rushing?
How do you counter a rush?
Best maps for rushing?
etc. etc. etc.

Most of these I already know the answers to, but i'm just wondering what people think.

Huns are the perferred Civilisation to rush with.

With Huns you rush in Feudal age. You only need Lumberjacks, farmers, and stables.

Yeah, but how would someone defend against that? Wall as soon as possible? Watch-towers near every lumber camp, farm, etc?

Rushing is a cheap tactic that isn't fun for either side. I avoid it.

Start by learning how to pull boars and to time your feudal age. Beware the mighy skirmisher rushes. I don't remember the exact build orders though, I just remember losing to it a lot.

Rushing is one of the first things you should be able to do and to defend from, in your way to become a good player. That being said feudal age rushes are doomed to failure against any decent player.

So let's go:
Best civilization to rush with?
Maya, huns, britons, mongols, aztecs, in the words, civilization with economic bonus.
At what age do you start rushing?
Dark age rush= Drush, it's a excellent strategy or feudal age rush=flush.
How do you counter a rush?
One word: walls. If you are open, you will have good problems. Mostly players use scout+archers, so you need train spearman and skirms. Towers are good too.
Best maps for rushing?
Arabia :D

what do you think TheFlyingWombat? xD

It's common sense to get some trash units up as fast as possible in feudal, scouts, skirmishers, and spearmen.

Just find someone that agrees not to rush and enjoy the game. I love people that rush - they are beneath everyone in the evolutionary tree.

Great answer. :)
Another question:
Would you recommend the Goths for a flush? They have the infantry/training speed bonuses.

TheFlyingWombat, I don't like use goths for flush with infantry... I prefer drush, so I go to Castle Age and train knights to raid the enemy. If it work, I'll boom and try finish flooding with infantry ;)

Heheh. Thanks

Everyone rushes. It sorta gets boring after awhile. I mean EVERYONE in EVERY RTS game rushes xD It's getting ridiculous. There's no more real strategy involved. And yes I understand rushing is a strategy but it's way over used.
