  1. I really appreciate, but I think that a top player needs to be constant. I am not, in the past months I have been extremely busy. Impossible to manage doing two unis, sport, friends and playing 0ad at the same time. I'll be back in summer I hope :))
  2. Hi, I already partecipated in a tournament back in 2018. Because of that tournament, I decided to stop playing 0AD for 2 years. I don't really like the idea because I can't think of 0AD as a competitive game. I play it just for fun, and I think that having a monthly league or tournament (= real skill ranking) would be stressful and could probably lead me to stop playing. it's just a personal thing, you can obv disagree with it :))
  3. Hi, I uploaded a new video about my personal economy strategy with Sparta. I did a little tutorial about my build order in single player then showed 3 1v1 games I did against @Philip the Swaggerless, @dakeiras and @vinme. Hope it can help :))
  4. I discovered 0AD in 2015. I started playing multiplayer in 2017. I'm still here, not getting bored of it :)) (0AD is the only game I play)
  5. 1) With 500 of each metal and stone you will be able only to get the P2 eco upgrades and build some barracks, nothing else. 2) If you need to go outside your territory to get other mines, how can you do it if you don't have the resources to build a civic centre? 3) If there are little mines scattered in your territory (that can be easily reached during P2 for example) these little mines have a capacity of max 10/12 men. THis is the heaven of any rush player, and the nightmare of any counter rush player (cavs are just so fast that can kill these small group easily before reinforcement can arrive). I prefer the idea of having the 5000 metal and stone mines in your territory (reachable also in P1) but not next to the cc. The main problem is that in this case you have no way to protect the fields from a possible min 8-10 cavarly rush. It's already hard to defend a cav rush in the fields with 5000 res mines, imagine to do it when your mines around the cc are exhausted even in the early game. You cannot keep 20 men idle just to defend the fields.
  6. Would discourage rushes and favour turtling. Terrible if implemented in 1v1 games
  7. I use them a lot mostly in tgs when I play with kush/maury. Mixing them with regular spearmen is soo good They can be used for P2 rushes too
  8. Take 1 camel and he won't deal any damage to a woodline with 40 units working. Take 15 of them and they will be both annoying and lethal if microed well (they can kill a skirmisher in 1 shot and a spearmen in 2-3 seconds). In P2 if the enemy is booming (unless he is an archer civ) he has no units to counter them, and doing melee cavarly as counter takes at least 2 mins (stables+training time), so it's a good way to slow down the opponent
  9. I think archer cavalry is a good unit. It is not supposed to deal a lot of damage: it's mostly and annoying unit which purpose is to keep the enemy idle and harass his wood/mineral eco. In my opinion it's not a unit that can win a battle, so while you train some of these archers to slow the enemy eco down you should train a strong army in the back (skirms, slings, sword cavs, or any units that deal much damage). In the 1v1 I showed in the video Vali had only archer and spearmen infantry in his base, which is why when I attacked him with merchenary units mixed to slingers and spearmen he had no counter to that. If he began to train skirmishers and maybe waited to have 10/15 cav archers before attacking me he could probably survive better my P2 attack.
  10. Hi everyone, I just uploaded a new video on my channel of you are interested. It's a commentary of an interesting 1v1 I had with @ValihrAnt two days ago (we both experimented not common civilization strategies) :))
  11. This felt pretty easy honestly. Only "cheat": I paused at the beginning to have an immediate start and to check the woodlines and berries of my territory. I realized at the end of the game that I didn't set "teams locked", but the AI remained allies for the whole time and I didn't make alliances with them. I will try 1v6 too. 1v5.zip
  12. Idk if someone can be interested in this, but here is my personal ranking (very few players) of the players that particularly impressed me in the past 3 months (from july 2021 to october 2021). Valihrant vinme, Feldfeld, Lorenz11 chrstgtr, Berhudar, borg- Letswaveabook, dakeyras
  13. The ONLY way to counter a good carthage player is 1) making palizades around fields 2) playing in a biome that has a lot of wood so it allows you to have only 2 woodlines. Rushing with cavs is so easy (when you have more than 15 cavs), but defending it is so hard.
  14. How can you have large enough groups on biomes such as Aegean Anatolian, Arctic, Autumn, Nubia, Sahara, Steppe when playing in a 1v1 on a small map? They have a very weak base if you have at least 30+ soldiers to attack it. When you send your army, the carthage player will likely see it coming, so he will just retire his troups moving them around his territory, building towers, garrisoning in them and barracks, slowly damaging your army thanks to the range of archers (who can be kept near to the cc if we are talking about P1 and P2). In order to damage the carthage player you need then to have a big army, and when you move it away from your territory you 1) renounce to develop your eco 2) become extremely vulnerable to a sword cav rushes (that can rush immediately after your army passed your territory border and still be able to return to the base in order to support the defense against the counter rush)
  15. That's definitely the case of mauryan Maiden Guards. That units (champions!) don't absolutely make sense and I think should be reviewed. Another big problem (in my opinion) is about heroes. Boudica and Cleopatra have a insane and totally unrealistic damage attack and amount of HP.
