Re: diarouga vs snowww

I don't think people mind games being played out in fortress, as long as it doesn't mean it's a skirm war so often. Colonial games are just as boring when it's musk wars lol, look at brit mirror. It's just nice when there's different kinds of unit compositions and more intense micro. Also not havin...

Re: diarouga vs snowww

No way an Aztec rush works against Port CM. Also most of the time it isn't really a "rush", ie 700w/10maces/9maces/6pikes, but rather a colonial timing, which is different.

Re: diarouga vs snowww

I haven't really read this thread super closely (just skimmed it, really), but I don't really think walls/water should be a big balance concern at the moment. The fact of the matter is that when it works it is only because the opposing player doesn't understand how best to deal with it. That isn't ...

Re: diarouga vs snowww

Regarding aoe2, maybe its as you suggest, even though i said im not that familiar, i shouldnt have brought it up in this way i guess. But Diarouga, please dont cherry-pick or use things out of context, how should we argue with you, you also did this with Garja before. - Regarding sc2, I said "...

Re: diarouga vs snowww

There is nothing subjective on delaying manor boom with coyote raids. You can't simply leave the vill building it while attacked. At best you save it and delay the manor or you sac the vill for some coyos, assuming lbows are in position. Either way it's good for Aztecs. As for starting pike, ye tha...

Re: diarouga vs snowww

Diarouga, if anything, that argument of your game vs kynesie just shows walls (at least with current stats/costs) are completely changing the game in a way they are not supposed to, especially with some people abusing it as much as possible Sadly, this game is getting further from a real strategy g...

Re: diarouga vs snowww

By my experience coyote run by is always a good trade even when you lose some of them and don't get any vill. Just driving attention from the manor boom is good by itself You expect your opponent to macro poorly because you raid him. You can't expect to win because your opponent makes mistakes. and...

Re: diarouga vs snowww

i just went too greedy and i played way too passive to delay ur timing, coulve made more maces rather than coy after scouting rax and kept poking for example It wasn't really too greedy. Like 3wp/700w/5v is definitely a good build order to hold that kind of timing, and the point is that you can't p...

Re: Help a noob

I'd say the best way to counter a 5 cav semi is to play Germany. Go for a uhlan semi (you'll have more cav), and thanks to your superior shipments you'll outmass in fortress. You should check Mitoe's guide if you want to know more about this. Other than this, the Otto ff should do pretty good again...

On RE maps the MU is of course different because you can contain and Brit has a harder time winning with a timing.

Re: Help a noob

IT IS EASY TO BEAT THE FRENCH, JUST PLAY GERMANS/BRITISH/RUSSIANS OR ANY OTHER CIV TO BE HONEST. THIS GAME IS HISTORICALLY ACCURATE SO FRANCE IS SHIT TIER IN THIS GAME However if your opponent plays french with handicap enabled and given to him (as he should) follow the advice above. France is actu...

Re: diarouga vs snowww

Also I absolutely loved how Diarouga approached this. I think its rare for us to see cases where people are stuck with a civ in some match up that is generally bad and have to find ways to make it work or at least to maximize the winrate. Diarouga was forced to play aztec against british, and manag...

Well, in a normal tourney it would have been uhlan semi vs China ff, here we saw some unstandard age 2 stuffs, which was quite nice.
