Re: Micro help

Xbows and pikes are just simply not cost effective units. They are only usefull in special cases. For example vs japan pikes are good siege shrines. In combat they are totally useless. Xbow can be used for a big early mass cause they are somewhat usefull. But still very weak. This is partially not ...

Re: Jerom_ vs GoodSpeed

I think French can still do the classic musk/huss+age up thing and then use 2 falcs + cuirs switch to win. If those things fail Dutch probably wins in midgame outlasting and with skirm combat card.

Re: Best civs for improving

French, pretty straight forward civ and you can directly see the result of decisions without the risk of being decived by minor mistakes (e.g. bad micro in a fight or occsasional big mismacro).

Re: Russian Discussion Thread

Ye russia is quite a versatile civ. It has 400w, steel traps and fast age up, does have schooners, it is an offensive civ but that outscales most civs in the long run and it also has all type of units.

Re: Taking down an Indians user

does anyone have a link to any tournament game or smackdown where british did a timing push and broke an agra? Ideally while dealing with a sepoy rush before making the push. That replay would give him all the tools he needs. This one is quite textbook: AGES_10064_[SkWzZ]NaturePhoenix_vs_Airlity_Bo...

Re: Scout rush!!!

Forgot it is actually 15 attack and not 10. 180hp 15atk is almost like carded coyotemen but with no real counter.

Re: Scout rush!!!

No spies had better base stats I think and no real counter so they were massable and strong. They nerfed them. Native scout are weaker but stronger than current spies after the native card (they get 10 attack iirc).

Re: Kaiserklein vs Knuschelbär

I'm not talking about dual rax start. I'm just saying aftert 700g 700w 700f I usually stagecoach and drop a 2nd rax cause you need more infantry vs BR or WW, while 50:50 composition gets unbalanced easily and cleaned up with shipments. Also it doesn't work vs straight FF for WW or BR while 75:25 sho...

Re: Kaiserklein vs Knuschelbär

He switched way later to abus, at that point was fine because they both stabilized and otto build wasn't forcing anymore. Basically he had to switch cause he lost momentum (again because too many huss he got pushed back). There were several moments where the game was almost even while with proper bu...

Re: Kaiserklein vs Knuschelbär

Because u need to spend 300w on another building and they cost more pop. Plus they lose to ulhans that Germans will have from every shipment.
Since you're leading there is no reason why you want to switch to a different unit type. It's up to the opponent to counter your mass.

Re: Scout rush!!!

Cause you can spam more in theory. Anyway it isn't a great at all. Just on EP wood is going to be gathered almost faster than food thanks to teepees so basically might worth to try it. Ah and native scout doesn't really have a counter (except for spies). Thinking of it, it is exactly like spies spam...

Re: Kaiserklein vs Knuschelbär

If otto go for 700g 700w 700f and add a 2nd rax, this is very forcing for Ger. It's the same French can do except it's faster and you have abus just in case for later. In this game Kaiser overdid with huss (no 2nd rax) and knuschelbar has a chance with the first 3 ww. I disagree tbh. Heavy on huss ...

Re: Scout rush!!!

Ye no snare sux for this strat but 6 teepees make wood gathering like 2x faster. And sioux don't need houses which is particularly relevant here. Plus sioux have that card for infantry speed and WC boost which is nice. The overall reason to make this strat was that scouts only cost wood so you can s...

Monitor capture works. Windows capture should also work just fine. It depends on what's running your game and OBS (CPU or dedicated GPU). Try running OBS with the GPU.

Idk current meta is easy. Go semi, make an army, fight a big battle. Lot of games are lost because the army performs at like 60% max of its potential.

I think someone good should try new creative approaches with very greedy buids (17v and early TP, market or ATP builds, etc.) and reactionary playstyle and see how they work in the current meta. This atleast vs semi ff civs. Vs colo civs I think just refined standard play is enough (except vs India ...

Re: How much do units gain from micro?

Btw from what I see in casted games (so pretty much every level) people lose so many games by micro that it is safe to say that micro counts atleast for 50% in this game.

I really dont understand your logic. The change isnt just for the sake of changing them. Extra 50f in bank means their first vill batch gets queued sooner and that they have more resources after the last vill batch comes out. +1 coin crate means that they wont have to gather as much coin in transit...

Re: How much do units gain from micro?

Again, splitting fire properly (especially with skirm) is what makes the difference between average and good players. So don't expect to see many people doing that. I personally always do that (took the habit long time ago) and also do that vs cav which is even more important because it's the differ...
