Re: how to improve APM

Much like working out, your APM gets better when you are pushing yourself to be better. Not when you are just chilling out and having a great time :).

Re: How good are the best RE players?

All the best players are on EP. Pushing eachother to get better at the game. So the best RE only players are pretty bad. In the same way the vanilla players are even worse because they are further removed from high skilled play.

Re: TC-TP radius rant.

In the original picture, you could just ignore the tp until fortress. Then kill it with your early ball of units which you usually would have standing around anyway. It probably costs more than it’s worth to build. If it’s not ATP it’s for sure bad. Spain and port are the only civs who ATP and they .....

Re: Arsenal & advanced arsenal discussion

I think the arsenal is actually quite good at the right moment. People are not aware enough of it to say it’s not useful.

Techs that are useful: CIR, goon range, cav Hp.

It saves food to use the techs which is really important.

Sending AA is just not useful until end game because the new techs you .....

Re: so, high PR players, why don't you play FFA?

Also a good strategy is not have the respect of your opponents. If people respect you then you’ll get pressured or teamed against more. So somehow you have to simultaneously be mediocre and boom.

In lower games people don’t really know each other so that helps a lot

One random thing you can do is to map your idle vil key to space bar and train your macro cycle to randomly hit it at times.

Re: Attack move bugging?

I count on my attack move to only spread fire, not be the thing that initiates at first. You should manage the movement of units more closely because attack move isn’t the fastest.

Re: Is it viable to send Hessian Jaegers against China (as France)?

I was more saying that you should focus on the more granular elements of strategy based on the original post. I would have to play the matchup again and figure out my thoughts to know exactly when to push and which units to have.

Re: Is it viable to send Hessian Jaegers against China (as France)?

China doesn’t have a lot of anti cav and their cav is their strong thing. That’s why curs are good vs China.

It’s quite risky for China to open Manchu shipment 1. Red coats are decent. My bet is you are too passive and as a result you don’t push times where you can take good trades.

Re: Japanese Club Rush vs Spain

They can counter it with building placement, keeping their explorer alive, punching with vils, and calling minutes appropriately.

I don’t think it’s viable to win a game outright on the rush and I didn’t even do the no eco FF. I would send 5 vils as Spain even while being club rushed.

Re: Dutch on 200 wood start?

Because you age a vil later and have 100 less wood to build a bank. Banks give EXP so you have back to back shipments anyway for your first three colonial shipments. You also can’t spend all the wood from the 600 wood even if you could get it faster.

Exp is not that great all the time.
