The game is soon to be out. So a good idea is to either be in a group (Or make a group.) or be a Lone Wolf. Quite frankly. A group is a lot better than being alone. If you have more allies then enemies then you'll have more help. The problem I have on Age of Empires III is that I can never get any better than I am. This is kind of a question as well. Is there a way to get stronger, faster and smarter on playing a game like Age of Empires? A strong team is one way. But you don't want to pull your friends down with you.
