One other project/strat I'm going to try out.

The greek rush myth. I believe the common perception is they suck don't have a chance at all with rushing.

I agree to a certain degree. However, recovering or bringing your economy back around after an early rush greeks have an advantage. In my mind after ancient the limiting factor in your ability to tech is knowledge. When you rush with the greeks or do some early raiding(failed rush :P) with the greeks by the time you hit classical you have enough knowledge to keep on teching up. I believe that may give you an advantage.

So, this is the basic germ of an idea.

Going to see if it proves true or goes down the hole like early barracks raiding. I still think that barrack raiding has to have some application we haven't figured out yet, either with certain nation matchups or on certain maps.


Have fun out there,

I have no problesm rushing with greeks, they are just as likely to take the enemy capital as any other none rush specialist and that 500 wealth loot is just what the doctor ordered to drag those slow starters kicking and screaming out of the first 2 ages.

Ok, the last week or so have been awfull. I believe any skills I was had obtained in RoN have eroded, fallen into some deep dark hole.

With that disclaimer, this is yet another strat that hasn't worked out to the best for me.

I've been playing mostly random nation/random team 3v3 or 4v4 lately. Twice since this post I've landed Greeks, both times I've atttempted a rush. Both times I played it poorly and either had my barracks spotted or didn't send scout well enough to prevent a barracks being built. However, both times my recovery from a failed rush was much better than expected. In one case I was able to come back and turtle then boom.

Anyways, the point is so far this hasn't worked out for me. Of course my normal strats that used to work haven't been working too well. I believe this is like golf, right now I'm trying to fix too many pieces of my game and as a result everything is coming out a slice.


Have fun out there,

WhiskeyPete

There are occasions when the conventional wisdom is both conventional and wise.
