Every player with any experience at all will tell you that going straight for capitol is a bad idea. Build for creatures and castle, then upgrade your creature dwellings (unless there's a hill fort close of course).

My opinion is worth more than 2 cents

  Well my opinion is...all depends on which map and what size you are playing.  If it's large to XL I almost always go for army first.  If it is a small or med map I go for the town hall and some creatures and at least citadel first usually, then money.  Keep in mind that I usually play randoms with no fixed template.  If it was one of the set maps that most of the ToH players like it is usually better to go full army and hopefully Castle first week.

Hmmm, why did I know before I read your profile that you're a Romanian(cu R mare)...? There are 'hordes of threads like this one but I'll answer...I usually build lvl 2-5 creature generators and their requirements, and at the end of the week, Citadel and Castle.

Start by building up to at least level 5 creatures, then work with citedels, castles and mage guilds.  once you get some extra buildings in, then get in your 6 & 7 levels.  you will then want to upgrade your level 7 dwelling, but you may be short on funds, so build other upgrades as long as they dont interfere with precious recorces.  money comes in fast.  once you have all (or most) upgrades built, work on getting more of the creatures you can get, and lastly, put in those little things to power up heroes, or whatever.  the grail takes priority over every thing.

the first thing i always get is town hall, city hall, capitol.

It just gets you more money after.
And you should always secure yourself with resources in the beginning

I generally can build town hall and then all my creature dwellings in week one.
Then in second week I get my capitol and castle.
Then I upgrade as quickly as possible.
Meanwhile I buy some archery and tank units and go free resources to make it all possible.

you can build all creature dwellings in the first week only if playing stronghold, fortress and i am not sure for the others. Their dwellings can be created 1 after another with no other additional buildings needed.

I feel that gaining respurces & gold is important but gaining the precious resources are important .

I build a marketplace first,following the resource silo for one or 2 of the precious resources so I can never run out of what I may need in the future.

Folowwing the city hall & by week 2 i can have the capital in day 1 or 2

yeah, building that resource silo early on gives you the edge in a lot of the games. That is why good players always build resource silos very early in the game.
