Fast Castle

This build order considers that you have 2 boars and 4 deers. You may want to change the build order a bit if you are playing Huns, Teutons, Mongols or China to take advantage of their bonuses.

BUILD ORDER:

Game starts

  • Put 2 vills on one house and 1 vill on one house. Build two houses. Use scout to find sheep. When you find sheep, send two to TC and other two to scout. [If you’re playing China (1.0c or 1.0e patch), build the house a bit later. Focus on getting enough food first].
  • Once the houses are build, send these villagers to sheep.

    Next few villagers go like this:

  • Sheep
  • Sheep
  • Sheep

    You now have 6 villagers on Sheep

 

  • Lumber camp – > Lumberjack
  • Wood
  • Wood
  • Boar
  • Wood [If you’re playing huns, you don’t really need 4 on wood, can do just 3]
  • Mill

    Once the mill is built, use the villager who lured the boar and got injured to make a farm.

  • Mill
  • Mill
  • Mill
  • Boar

    Again, use the injured villager to make a farm.

  • Wood [Second Lumber Camp]
  • Wood
  • Wood

    Use two of the hunters to make two farms. (the boar must be getting over by now)

  • Wood
  • Wood [If you’re playing Teutons, can do with one or two less on wood].

    Build a Mining Camp

  • Gold
  • Gold
  • Gold

    Age up with 26 villagers + 1 scout.

    • 10 on Wood
    • 3 on Gold
    • 4 on Forage
    • 3  Hunters on Deer
    • 4 Farmers
    • 2 on Sheep
  • During Age up to Feudal, use one villager to build a Barracks. If required, use another villager to build a few palaside walls.

    When you reach Feudal Age, use four villagers (from wood, generally) to build a Stable (or a Archery Range, if you’re going CA) and a Blacksmith (or a Market, if your team-mates aren’t great with coordination and flaring).

  • Wood
  • Wood

    The new villagers in Feudal Age went to wood (the trees near the TC).

    Click Castle Age and research wood-cutting and mill upgrades. After clicking castle age, your villager distribution (Total 28 villagers) should be something like:

  • 8 Farmers
  • 13 Lumberjacks
  • 4 Miners
  • 3 Foragers (These will build Farms around the mill as soon as the forages get over)

    Reach Castle Age around 16:20 or so. Can make knights from one stable. This is more of a boom-y buildup. During transition, you can move a few villagers from wood to gold and go two stables instead of one.
