Just wanted to stop by and say hi to you fools and say thanks to ROSIE for a game we played a few weeks ago and ELF for some games last night.

Thanks for being patient with a newbie.

Wanted to say thanks again to Elf for the games. dude you got skills. We played a game last night with Him, me and one other mid skilled guy (Cpt something) and with his direction took down 3 skilled players, well, skilled to me anyway (ToxXxic, Joe squire, and atkins or somthing like that). The force is strong with this one.

Also wanted to thank Zippo. not sure why but he kept wanting me to play in games with him the other day. It was almost weird. O.o I kept looking at my "ama" to make sure my ass wasn't hanging out.
     
For the most part all of the Gens have been pretty cool to me, and i appreciate that. It's not easy being a newbie in a game with 4 year vets. So thanks (mad dad, foxy, rosie and zo have also been cool)

What would really be cool is if the GENS got together and said "hey you know that anchient guru guy "ratamaq"? he's cool we should grant him access to our private strat forum sinces the guruclan is somewhat displaced at them moment." I could like sign some non disclosure form or something.

sorry ZO i dissagree, but to each his own.

To try to fly solo in a game like this is to reinvent the wheel. Learning from other players is as dependant on other players wanting to teach you as it is your ability to learn on the fly. Familerizing yourself with every strat you can get your eyes on at least puts you in a position where if your in a game with skilled players and they pass you a sy and say "build a cap and send it back" you know why the first time.

I have yet to be caught by a hyper torp because i know what to look for on the enemy and i know when and why to build a gw or bombers. I learned that from reading forums, not because i've been hypertorped. If we are in a game and you ask for ru to finish a bc I will sell a fac to give it to you not from experience, but because reading different strats, threads, and game reports has given me a somewhat clear picture of what the team is up to, not just me and mine. I'm not here tring to figure anything out (yet). Four years has done that for me. I'm here to learn and start kicking ass as soon as possible.

Ofcourse over a long period of time raw experience will bring wisdom, but knolegde will greatly offset the amount of time it takes on the path to skill.

The first 1v1 we played took you less than 10 mins to own me. I told you after that game we would meet again. Two weeks later, the second took you over an hour. It's been two weeks since then, what might the third game bring? >:)

i remember both games.

the second game actually took 2 hours and 7 minutes.......see stats file below

would have taken 34minutes (which is still an great  improvement on your part)

but i somehow managed to hyper space my ms and shipyard along with only 2 of my 3 battlecruisers right on top of your base.
zo,foxy,mad-matt,rosie,zippo,black and several others will tell you i have a habit of doin things like that.

So i had to run away and rebuild whilst keeping on raiding your base.

LOL yea I remember I had to pull out and thumb thru the manual during that game to find out how to do a sencor ping. I think i chased you over 3/4s of the map. I learned alot that game. I don't think i had ever built a battle cruiser b4 that. I also didn't know that stuff in the middle would kill me.

Very mean map to put a newbie on, but since you couldn't (didn't) wipe me out early i probably doubled what i knew about HW2 in one game. Hell 2 hours and 7 mins is 4 average lenght games.

zo's point proved then I guess!

you learn more in game fighting then you would reading strats.

they are a good reference but i still hadnt learnt many if any gens strats when i was playing you.

i lost all but one of my production ships in that 1st attack on your base so was in a state of shock, but thats what makes this game so good.

Glad you learnt stuff tho i did too , like to think i have improved a bit since i met you so would be good to play a game again.

most important thing of all is never QUIT!

you almost beat me on that map because i wasnt concentrating but perseverance and greater knowledge on my part (all learnt with game experience) won through in the end.

I never would have learnt to be so good at hiding in that game if i hadnt have had to do a lot of it whilst getting pwned in a lot of earlier games.

lol rata u may learn threw knowledge thats ur way would be a good guy to have on my team in battle cuz u would know wat the enemy does before they do it but u gotta build counter ships and if ur already building fighter an they hyper caping then u gotta switch to frig and dd or frig on frig maybe throw in couple bombers with proxy and also quickly send ur cc with gw on it to middle so save u some time and then run cc back thats wat i learned in battle think quick and be on ur toes ALWAYS SEE THE ENEMY NEVeR ATTACK IN THE DARK NEAVER START UR SEcOND BUILD AFTER FIGHTER UNLESS U KNO IT WILLL COUNER THE ENEMY and then from there u can juss play normal send them to fight or do some back door dd some hyper cap with cloaked ms move it 2 back guy (pos3) with some marine and try to take his sy idk juss be quick to switch builds thats the only way to become skilled or w/e u call it

like in tfl-fallen lords we was losing it was me and foxy sand luky tdk i was right next to middle (dont kno the pos) but i was makin plats but they had mate makin corv so i got out plated and couldnt make no plats i lost my cc stopd everything  built nuthin but hyper fac to save my ms and from there made bc i took out eol cuz i had sy cloaked and he ran right into it his cc and all so even tho we lost i killed my guy so i did my part WOOT
