Which of the four main resources is the most important. This should give an idea to new players on what they need to focus on, what they need to do to win, and such.

Couldn't help myself :smurf: ... but really its food. Food=villagers, rest goes from there.

I changed my mind tbh F W G are all equally important and stone provides some great/situational options.

I agree wood is important, but I feel gold is far more important.

Normally I'd say food, but I find myself needing to source wood more than anything especially during Age 2.

i find having an adequate wood supply is key as it allows you to boom. Plus, it can help gather food by creating fishing ships.

It all would depend on the type of map you're playing, but for me, I'd say wood.

Gold is easier to deny, but wood is vital early in this game cause the buildings are pretty damn expensive, and age ups costs wood now.

Its a split between wood/gold for me :/ Wood is sooo important for everything, but without gold, you have 0 military.

Wood and gold. Food is really easy to come by, and you can survive with wood/gold units.

If I may, without food you can't make vills, without wood you can't make buildings, without gold you can't make military. All are equally important. The real question is how much of what you need at what point.

For example you need to chop lots of wood during age up for buildings, but to maintain constant villager and sari production you only need 5 or 6 vills on food.

Stone is the most important, there is no way to walls your mates TC in a 2v2 without stone, without proper protection ---> no win

gold, is the one which you cant obtain without map control (i think? :P).

You can survive without stone, but not without gold.

There is an old age of empires saying "wood is life". I have heared it, or perhaps I just make it up...
