You can make both a huge army while still have enough resources to age up.
Try making a town center ASAP on the resources you will be using on your army. Dont make more then two types of units if your planning to upgrade and never take up both iron and gold. Once you get more then enough of let say iron, switch from that gold unit type and use iron unit types while you get the gold. Once you have enough of both Iron and Gold, getting enough Food should be easy, as you can just wait. Also, Improve your graneries ASAP also.

Granaries don't turn into anything, but you can populate them with 8 citizens to make them "Improved Granaries." This is like making a settlement near a mine into a towncenter, it increases the production of food. I think it is somthing like 15 food brought in by citizen at improved granary gives you 20-25 food instead. Quite significant, it helps a lot.

Still trying.Still getting mop up,but I do have a little bigger army than before.About the only thing I see a increase in speed would be idle bomber hot keys(huge improvement) if I should make it that far lol.I run into a spot where i find i can't do anything but watch.What can be done?
I'm still missing something ,like a fine wine without the grapes,well maybe not that bad.It may be just give it time.

Ok, I am no expert but here are some things that might help.

If you have a high pop count try to get out about 80 citizens and keep them in play, make then farm, hunt or both, gather wood, and build buildings in addition to gathering gold and iron which is probably 24 max.

Next make sure at all times they are doing something tab is the idle citizen key.

If you find yourself being bored like in the first 5-20 minutes it is time to scout either waypoints or explore works fine.


Also make sure you build a barracks or a stable (if available) as your 2nd or third building behind a settlement or 2.

Never make your citizens walk more that 2-3 tiles for gathering resources; it puts a strain on your economy and every little bit helps.

As soon as you a steady flow of food populate settlements and gain epochs.

The best time to epoch (providing you have the available resources) is after a success (small or large) raid. This is because the enemy is trying to rebuild using his available resources. You have some to burn.

Finally the best thing to remember is don't build units that can not help you if you know that the enemy is using gun cavalry and sword cavalry whatever age make sure you have pikemen and spear cavalry and always use waypoint attacks (shift+ctrl+right click) and select multiple targets. Also attack in different groups to counter their troops.
