Rise of Nations

I have been playing Rise of Nations on and off since 2005. I really got into it in the year 2008, when I started playing with my brother-in-law on Gamespy and on Virtual Private Networks.

As I started playing the game, I started picking up on the core concepts of the game like rushing, booming and raiding.

It is at that point when I decided to share my experiences and tips on this blog. While posting articles about RIse of Nations, I had another realization – and this is a nuance of the game, but it definitely is there. Some strategies are civilization specific.

Here is a list of civ-specific strategies that I have written till now -

  • Egyptians – Powered by wonders, Delayed rush and early wonders
  • Turks – Militia Rush, Villagers and Siege (will work for Koreans as well)
  • Japanese – Boom and strong infantry

Besides these, I have also covered some concepts about the game here -
