Micro

 

Micro: Micro stads for Micromanagment. Microing inside Aom means to give orders to individual or small group of units instead of giving the same orders to big groups of units (macroing). Microing results always in more efficient processes but requires a lot more time than macroing as well.

 

You know that when your hunters shoot at a deer, the animal will run. After the deer died, moving your ox-cart near to the corpse to save walk time from your hunters is and example of microing.

 

Microing in battle is extremely important too. If you had 5 TA vs 5 TA, theory says they would all kill each other. Microing changes results, if the first group of Ta shot 1-1 (each one of the first 5 Tas would fire at different TAs in the other group) and the second group fired one by one ( the whole group vs one opponent's Ta, then the next one, and so on...) the second group would win easily.

 

In AOM combat, you should always micro your units to kill their counters. Meaning, calvary should fight archers, heroes should fight Mus, siege should kill buildings and so on...
