I didn't want to change anything not to ruin the feeling - kkab's English might not be the best (as he says himself), but it is surely understandable and very original - you know it's him when you read it

standard is rated point sure.
it works at old day. but its not at now.
here has a lot of smurfs and set team newbie who want easy point)
so i am measure with something.
aoc is really long long game.
it came since 2000 already.
almost player played at least 3+ years and patch dosent change since 7 years.
no more speical strategy makes closed level to all.
therefore i type how to measure player's rated.
basic in aoc is build order (how much village takes sheep, wood, berry, hunts, farm and how to makes house, wall, building and reached up still feudal or dark age)
i am sure u watched much recorded game.
look at less 1750 rated player how to build order
they havnt good build order. they always do what they wanted.(its not means expert what wanted from random situation) it let him cant his best play. they needs watch them's record which he played best and remember it and try it all the game. it makes him bored sure after time. bored means isnt that play only one style. can play it 120% and needs new things. (i am still fix my build order to can be more good. :$)
1800 ~ 2000rated has good build order still reached castle age up and makes good units.
they arent different to 2k rated with build order
u can see real 1800 rated recorded game. 1800 player can be 23+2 build order still reached castle age up like me in ln.
it meant they takes almost same resource, makes good wall and almost same amout units like me.
but lack of other things.
after 2k rated.
they r same like 1800 rated who can be good build order.
but 2k knows how to map control.(of cuz 1.8k too dose it.)
an example : 1800 rated's scout just cleared fog. but 2k+ rated's scout cleared fog and check where is gold and stone. where is fight line(hill for defance or raid his base) for attack, where is good spot for castle or tc. of cuz in ln. i always is think when my sheeps is exploring map.
how much i have gold and stone. (it decided my army, and push or defance still perfact trade, and rush or boom)
how long i closed to ally or enemy, where is good wall for defance enemy.
where enemy will be makes 2nd and 3rd tc.(it let me where my knight go first or raid )
what he want now knight or archer or monk or boom (it let me change to strategy for count strategy.)
how to micro. when i need fight or not. i can use how much resource for push. and so so...
so i can be measure little sure whats his rated if i played one game or watch his recorded. i can know he does map control but looked like lack of to perfact skills
and after all of it 2300++ rated. they has really closed skills each other and understand almost strategy.
they r really few player. ( it meant they knows well each other. and wahtced record and researched and think how to kill him.) who can be 2.4k? or 2.5k?
2.3k really knows well to other 2.3k rated style, strategy, what he likes.
do u want be over rated? if u r 2.3k. watch only one who overed 2.3k rated record and write all his information on paper 11 or remember it. when he reached castle age up if he use one strategy (an example: he reached feudal up with 23 vils. and make one stable and make 2 archery after time. when he makes blacksmith then? u can know his army upgrade time then. and u see 15 scout and 20 archer+skir and few pike. when he reached castle age? dose he like push in any situation? when he played bad on which situation?. ok, u need make count strategy or more good build order then him. u can be 2.4k sure then :$)
koven was 2.5k when all othere expert was 2.3k
he could take only 3~5 point even he won 2.2k or 2.3k (of cuz he too played team game and got 5~7 pointed. but almost his rated was 1v1.
old day has much expert.(not like now. really many 2k, 2.1k, 2.2k, few 2.3k(they r be 2.5k now). it was really exiting. i dont know what they do. and hasnt any information. they always makes new strategy and used it to koven.
but he kept it long long time even all wanted kill him.
thats why i called its "real 2.5k"
