Watch and enjoy this Man-at-arms rush using Celt civilization (My favourite). I played a 1559 rated guy named dairyman_mn. This victory took me to a rating of 1603, the first time getting past 1600 mark after about seven months of online experience. See how M@A is a reliable feudal unit, especially in early to mid feudal. Comments are welcome.
Cool game you speant your time gathering resources in the dark age which lead into an interesting feudal age rush, which resulted in a good quick victory, you have a good style of play, nice upload.

Very nice game.. but I think your opponent lost because he made scouts.. if he had gone skirms and archers you could have been in deep trouble. Anyway in this game man at arms did work well.

Thanks for comments both of you.
As for skirms + archers, I still have beaten equal rated players with this strat. Mainly because opponent wouldnt have enough archers by the time unless he mines gold early to afford some archers. Skirms actually lose to M@A. Skirms cant stop M@A from killing or fleeing villagers from dropsites. Even few M@A can keep way large skirmisher armies from killing villagers and soon by mixing some skirms of my own, I can take out skirms and archers. My opponent would have a good chance if he makes archers from the start and upgrade them before being too late.

i'm about to see it in a moment, from the comments above i got really curious. Like my name says i like Celts a lot 2 and i cant wait to learn more about celt flush and other celt tactics. I think celt flush is great because of the 15% speed bonus, and because u get the wood for the barrack earlier then other civs.
Ill post another comment as soon as i have seen the record
First i got to say it was a great game!
Beating up a Hun with celts is not everyday business. I saw some other guys doing it 2 but i like this game a lot
You did great job combining all types of soldiers. M@a, M@a+archers+skirms, some pikes i saw and you finished the game with the knights.
You used the terrain quite well, when you send your troops away you always send them uphill, (something at least i can learn about) You also did a great job at economy, great combination of army and economy! You switched great between your enemies resources. You used the Celtic bonussus real good. Timing was also great, the flush came at a good time.
