War Story

This game is from the first years of AoC, when tactics were still in full development and players were distinguished by their level of tactical thinking rather than being the fastest clicker. Mozart is usually quoted as being the inventor of the drush, and in this rec you could see it was a hard thing to pull off, and probably an even harder thing to handle. So Mozart went drushing while Deputy braced himself for an archer rush. But Mozart took a villager on his quest and walled most of Deputy’s mines. Most however, he failed to spot a mine in the back, so Deputy went archers anyways. Mozart was very slow at reaching the feudal age but the moment he did, he made 4 archery ranges right away, each making archers. From that point a huge archery armageddon took place. But going into an archer fight with a Mayan is tricky, especially if he starts to mix in skirmishers too. In early castle Mozart managed to push back Deputy and with some siege he forced him on his knees.

And thus Mozart wrote the last notes of his Archery Adagio
