I'll probably do it again in a bit. I played kind of sloppy and made a lot of things that I really didn't need.

*Edit* Aaand here we go!

Not too bad for a first attempt, The cleanup at the end seemed to take a while and I have about 3k food due to unbalanced resource collection. 12 minutes should be achievable I think.Posted Image

I got 16 mins just because my rams were unable to ride over the bumpy area to their town x)
I'll try again sometime and build my rams somewhere else. I think I can do it in 12

12 is confirmed as possible :banana:. I'm now thinking even 10 might be on the edge of possibility, 11 looks pretty feasible. Remember that houses and dropsites are not conquest critical, so just concentrate on towers and the CC (if a barracks is built you were too slow :P) and killing the pesky workers. All this qbot playing seems to be persuading me that qbot is too weak though :(, .Posted Image

I'd expect Marilyn to behave better at this challenge, since it's from my testings much more efficient in the early game.

thank you, I'm going to try to get under 10 mins tomorrow and hope F2 will do the job :)

hat's this I hear of the The 10 Minute Challenge?


how did you got it soo quick?
I gather all given resources and make a forward base near the bot.
train some archers and shield-guys with womens in the home-base and focus primarly on food and a bit metal.
on the forward base I train exclusivly shield-guys and archers that all get to put on wood, quickly build a fort and train 2 rams.
while those rams are producing I send my first little army to deal with their military and then join with a newly produced army and my rams.

What am I doing wrong? :) I'm also very new at this game so I don't know any names of units, let alone what counters what. I'm always assuming it follows the rules I'm used to (aoe3)

There's no counter right now, it will be in alpha 9 afaik... So pretty much spamming spearmen should do the trick, I think they're the strongest.
I'm gonna give this challenge a shot if I find time tonight... Not too likely however.

hehe, not as great as the post above but I think it's pretty good for me :)
I had some problems finding their last unit causing me to slow down. I might be able to finish it in 9:30 but under that will be pretty hard

No way did you make 88 units in nine minutes *and forty seconds! No way! I can't possibly conceive...

...maybe I just need to get a lot better? :(

yes, that was a pure waste of me as 88 units was pretty much overkill. should've attacked sooner :P
I really want to get it under 9:30

And if you think your doing something wrong or want to get a bit better, I'll write my strat down here in the forums somewhere to help starting players (like me) a bit further. :)

I would see you gaming..., maybe you teach us a tips for Rushing with Persians in 0AD, upload a video ( use fraps). maybe you can make a Tutorial for Noobs like me. XD


Basically all you have to do is build a fortress and construct about 4 rams. Send those in with an escort of about 10 soldiers to keep the enemy soldiers busy (because a ram will turn and attack any soldier attacking it). Take down the Civ Centre with those rams and then mop up the enemy units... ignoring all other buildings. By this time you should be streaming soldiers from your base, with a rally point set at the enemy base. Use all soldiers to find any remaining enemy units (females, citizen-soldiers).
