Learn how to spam 5-30 pts most costeffective (read OP among all others) units?)

J/k, but u know..

Its more than just that though. It's lack of knowledge in force composition, how and where to position units, and unit control(micro of heavy tanks, jets) that hurts newer players the most in my opinion.

In short, little things that most wont learn unless they watch high level replays and commentators. Which isnt always the commentator with the most subscribers....

The real issues are transparency and control. The level of anonymity is high, especially to newer players. The level of actual control is low. The ability of hosts to prevent inspection (how many games start before all opponents are can both inspect the other players and choose a deck? 80%? 90%?)

Permit inspection of a game without joining.
Facilitate conditions of contest based on games played, win percentage and the like including limits of numbers of players of a skill level in a game. (E.g. no more than n players with fewer than X games in a 10 v 10)
I do hope that for large games like 10 v 10, the game already prevents bunching of all the players on the same side of a given skill level to one portion of the map. Spread the weakness among the strength.

I think that given the incorrigible nature of a fair portion of the population, the only thing to do is make it easier for the civilized parts to be civilized. And by making what is going on clearer to all, and some tools to assist selection of balanced conditions of contest the Hobbseans can continue on their way, while the rest try for something more refined.

LOL :lol:

Yeah better is to play "spam" games, where people just spam, spam, spam. Tactic like hell, where only criteria of winning is who spam more :lol:

Join some tactical game where two similar teams play, and You will "discover" that is not so boring as u think and I can assure You that each player controls more that 5 units. ;)

Hypocrisy much? Stacked teams are the ones guaranteed to be playing against noobs.

It's horrible trying to play on teams with public players because they do all kinds of dumb like not carry their load, or "i'm arty" and that kind of crap. That's why I play exclusively with friends.

This is the greatest lie in this thread.

You learn NOTHIGN by playign with people leagues above you. You learn by playing against peopel on same level or slightly superior.


Exaclty same thing with martial arts, You are not paired with a master when you start, you are paired to spar with someone roughly at your level.

You cannot learn of somethign that is too far out of your undestanding capabilities.

This.

Playing against way better players will give you nothing. It is better to create low level games and kick everyone who has too big level. Your experience will be better and you will learn faster.

Playing with better ones, can give u clue how to counter a various type of attacks, and not camping with arty only :lol:
