If you're not micro-managing your heroes in battle then you're probably going to lose a lot of games. This is extremely important against heavy myth unit civilizations like Loki and Zeus. How do you micro your heroes? It doesn't matter how you select them, either via a hotkey (press control and a number and click that number to select them) or double clicking, target those heroes immediately on the toughest myth unit that you see. When I'm approaching a battle and I have line of sight of their army before it reaches mine, I always select all of my priests and pharaohs and target one of their myth units before the battle starts. This ensures that the myth unit goes down fast and isn't a huge chunk of hit points that your units have to kill while they're being slaughtered by the player's other units. If you're merely selecting all of your units and clicking on one of the enemy units, there's no way you'll reach 1800+, much less get far in the 1700 crowd.
