Please help me be less terrible

Postby Lino » Tue 1 Sep 2015 17:28

I can't seem to find an early start that works for me. I don't play MP by the way always skirmish. I like the american because of deep mining, but everyone I start to venture out of my base I get destroyed. Can anyone help a guy who really wants to like this game

Start with two Oil refinery and 2 barracks, get two banks early. Build Anti tank(AT) infantry to defend vs enemy rush (put 1 AT in each bank and some in buildings outside your base). Make two aluminum refinery and then vehicle bay, get tusk 1 and spam strykers with tusk 1 and overrun the AI. When you are comfortable with this way to win, try to do other openings.

you really should play some multiplayer aswell. Just start with a 4v4 so your teammates can cover for you and you wont get attacked so fast. watch them , learn from it. watch the replays to see build orders or what things people do at certain points and why. analyzing is key.

Secure the chokepoints. Hills, bridges etc. Make the enemy have to funnel their forces to you. Secure cross roads and hold the high ground wherever you can. harass the enemy wherever you can. Prevent them from capturing banks, attack their refineries and collectors as they try to expand.

The important thing is to always be active. Don't just sit in your base expecting the AI to just send a few units every now and again. The AI will expand and will tech up if you let them.

Download replays here. Watch them and study them!

It's also fun to learn new stuff and watch replays.

First, don't give up! We believe in you. Second as mentioned above a strong opener is two oil refineries. I like to go barracks > secure bank > javelins to choke points backed with a stinger. Then I say rush to get some forward refineries and a couple of mg nests (helps ward off the AI tank or troop rush). From their the strategy is yours. I hope this helps.
