Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition – Beginners Tips

General Tips for New Players

  • Memorize default hotkeys or assign new ones that fit your playstyle.
  • Use SHIFT key to give multiple orders to a unit (or groups of them).
  • Explore all areas surrounding your base first (SHIFT comes very useful for this when you order your scout to do so).
  • Don’t stop creating villagers and make sure you are able to reach Feudal in 10 minutes, Castle in around 15-16 and Imperial in 28-30 minutes.
  • Adapt use of military, research, buildings, etc to the bonuses of the civilization you have chosen (also, learn build orders for it).
  • Use multiple archers or scouts to harrass AI villagers that are far away from their own Town Center during Feudal Age.
