Notes

"The important thing is: DON'T LOST KNIGHTS. They're very expensive and you don't want to lose them" - Beastyqt. The main way this build order wins is by taking cost effective trades and keeping your opponent in their base until you can finish with a ram push or age up to castle. Focus on taking those good trades and not losing units! What resource you harass is map dependent. Usually, you want to go for gold because it is out of TC range. Mill and maps with exposed wood lines are also good options. Keep rotating your knights between resources to tax your opponents micro and raid multiple resources at once if your APM can sustain it. As beasty says, upgrades (eco or military) should only be taken if you have enough surplus that it does not interfere with villager + knight + archer production. If you are missing units for an upgrade, you're doing it wrong. Play aggressive with the archers. Begin harassing enemy spearmen with your archers as soon as you see them, even if you only have two.
