French vs. Otto

If you do use control groups, then you shouldnt really need to double click units when you only have a few unit types. Even if you sniped his cannons his mams would've beaten your army - they have 40% rr and 1,450 hp. Best bet is to wait for his push (inevitably Otto will push as your eco advantage ...

Everything seemed to be in one group and you took a while to notice / adjust p.s. you didn't need to push out at that time. You knew he was going falc / mams and you had the...

Beating Russia with French...

Back in the day it was quite common for full coss for the first 8-9 mins before even making a BH, given Russian musk suck and coss have two upgrade cards before age 3

The Water Thread !

Sorry but if the water map has say more than 4 whales, and Jap goes full out wall crazy (looking at you Kynesie) then it's pretty hard to play against. Japan can get to age 3 before you've got through 7 layers of walls, and we consistently say that the best way to beat Japan is a timing push of arou...

russia vs ottomans

Otto can get up much quicker than Russia and will have more fortress shipments. Straight FF won't work to counter it unless you can slow down his push - could be with some raiding to distract, some early pressure into FF to try to contain and snipe vills to slow down the age, the use of walls - some...

2v2 tourney?

So maybe there aren't enough active players for a 2v2 now, but some of the old 2v2 tourneys were actually surprisingly good, especially where players went non-standard against better players to try and pull off a win (slinging, French grens, natives all over the place and so forth). It's a good thin...

2v2 tourney?

If the interest is there, then there could always be a number of tournaments for fun rather than money. Usually it's the money and the prestige of a cash tournament that motivates some people to play, so I guess you'd have to have enough people wanting to play for fun to make it work. I'd certainly ...

2v2 tourney?

It might be cool to come up with some ideas for fun tourneys with maybe a smaller prize fund for the future. 2v2 tourney would be good, but to be honest there are less people that play 2v2 together consistently nowadays. This was a tourney age sanc (I think) ran a few years back. I remember there be...

Jap recs!

Here's another if anyone's interested, which was supposed to be a pike semi-ff, but had to adapt into colonial play to start. p.s. lots of mistakes made, but the largest one was not scouting what Jap was doing at key moments in the game. Sometimes you can over focus on treasure as you 'guess' the st...

Jap recs!

The key here is to pressure eco and maximise vill idle time - and also work out what your opponent is doing. If he hadn't boomed so much and invested earlier in military then the game could go different, but then you can adapt and go age III earlier. Not all games will go this way, the earlier game ...

Jap recs!

Given the recent thread on playing vs Japs, I thought it may be useful for some of us to post recs of the MU's we've played recently vs Japan. Looking through my recorded games I only had 1 but attached in case it can help - not the best play from me, but in the previous game I went single rax pike ...

anything vs japan

Timing is essential in any MU vs Japan. Your strat on GP completely depends on what the other player is doing and all the usual variables, but generally I'd probably semi. Early game Jap will struggle to deal with your falcs, so I would siege with musk/pike age 2 and focus on shrines until you're up...

British vs Portuguese

- use your explorer to scout his base early - get timing right and see where he builds second TC - if you scouted dock you could've adapted. You kept your explorer idle by your FB and built stable rax before you even knew what he was doing (you generally need to have a vague idea of your opponents s...

Germany vs Spain awkward?

Unless you kill his forward tower early it's pretty hard to beat this vs a decent player imo. No doubt people have better builds than me, but I went naked FF for blackriders vs Kakasuma or whatever his name is the other day. He killed my TC before I even managed to get them out. Even if my macro / B...

Surely if he always FF then go colonial sepoy and take map. If he has a few cdb on each mine then send a few cav to raid each mine?
