Topic Subject:GP_Intel and eggy related questions.
posted 30 July 2006 03:11 PM EDT (US)         
Hi everyone, I have some eggy related questions that I want you guys to answer me.

I've heard that GP_Intel was probably the best player (or at least Isis player) in his time. I tried looking for
his replays but I have only been able to find one where he plays against Ourk. Does anybody know:
Where to find more of his replays? Or if someone has some could they please post them?
Did he play mostly vanilla? Why did he retire?

Now, on to the eggy questions.
Why are eles really considered OP if atties can deal with them with katas, Norse with bragi ulfs (and frosties for Odin), eggys with more eles, and Greeks with podromos or myrms (for Zeus)?
Why does Set require more micro than other eggies? Because of animals? (just a guess)
I recall someone saying that Possy counters Isis very good. Is this true? Why? Because of cheaper podromos? (guess)

Thx for the answers in advance.

3 Second Training times for a 750 hp unit..thats really good.

Katas -> Cost to much food to mass for atty eco in heroic to fighr eles.

Podromos -> Horrid Training times and do poorly against almost everything.

Bragi Ulfs -. Need to flood

Katapeltas - only viable counter for Elephants, but suck vs everything else
Prodromos - sucks vs EVERYTHING, can't even beat Elephants pop effectively or cost effectively
Bragi Ulfs - As mentioned above, need to flood..

Quoted from i r noob:

Prodromos - sucks vs EVERYTHING, can't even beat Elephants pop effectively or cost effectively

Prodromos do awesome against catapults! :P

But hey, this is another example for you generalizing too much, i r noob. Prodromos kill camels nicely, so they obviously do not suck vs everything. Against the other races, they have lots of uses, e.g. against hipps or RC. So while you have a point with what you meant, what you did say is simply wrong! Failing to elaborate like that actually means relaying false information and misleads unexperienced players.

Possy counters Isis well because he leans towards cavalry. Cavalry is good for raiding, and if the Isis player is attempting a FH then they will not have the resources to spend countering your raids, plus your raids will delay their heroic time. A semi-FH is alot less effetive than a FH if it occurs due to delays and not due to calculations (eg. Isis player takes another tc, gets out some rax units and booms before going heroic.)

I do not suffer from insanity.
I enjoy it.
