The Fall of an Empire

All empires fall especially in “Age of Empires.”

You would think playing as the Franks with a focus on lumber gathering would give you an edge in the early game. I forgot that the Saracens have the most profitable market in the game making them efficient on a team. Combine that with the Turks’ faster gold miners, cheap chemistry, and stronger gunpowder units and you’ve got a deadly combination of civilizations to fight.
