I just added this BO and have yet to test it as I just got it from "Slovenec" in this thread.   I'd try to build my dock with one of my 3 starting villies instead of using the 4th one and modify it a bit...

I'll try this and modify it adding when to build houses (for people that preferr such specific BOs) and stuff...


Zeus FM BO

I just add this heading to answer the many mails of people asking me for a FM BO and I'll tell u something:

There is not such a thing as a FM BO.

Keeping a BO post-classic is a nightmare because u are usually microing many more things (GP's, more villies, building raxes, armory upgrades, defending raids, etc...); imagine keeping one till mythic age! 

When doing FM strat u should mostly improvise keeping in mind that; u should buy a late classical with all the first eco upgrades, choose defensive GP's (CF -> x -> Plenty Vault ..preferrably) and reaching mythic age near the 10 mins mark (sometimes trading in your market to get the 1000 food and 1000 gold u need).

Remember also not to do this agasint rushing gods (loki, set, kronos mostly) and to execute it only when u have a big gold mine near to you (if not are just going to be gold starved) and in high hunt or high fishing maps...
