Lol, quite frankly, all Lightmare does is kill my ally, or double me.

It's happened twice.

Once I beat him because his ally was pwned by my ally, then he says 'reported' because we 11'd him. Once.

XD

Yeah, 2v2 rated is a little easy, especially when you're plonked with a 1550 ally when the enemies are, like, 1530.

1v1 is so hard, what with all the smurfs around.

AND DON'T SAY THEY'RE NOT, because I've seen at least 3 people say 'oh ffs, another smurf' in the last day.

I should really go Hermes unless it's high hunt...then I'll Mino/hop.

Regarding the topic (impossible to get to 1700) I have noticed a weird trend, wanted to share with you all and check if it was just a coincidence. I am a solid 1590-1620 (not a noob at all but far from playing well), meaning that until a few days ago, for a few weeks, whenever I played I would always win if my oponen was less than 1590 and also always lose if they were 1640 or more. However, the last coupld of games I played, although my oponents were rated 1550 or so, I did lose the games. They really played well and used expert strats ( I could tell since I had seen games like that from Experts) When asking their real rating, one said 1650 and the other did not reply (the second one seemed to play even better than the first). So...is there a "smurf boom" in 1500 level? Has anyone noticed that? It seems that it is easier to go, say, from 1590 to 1630 than it is to go from 1550 to 1590 or so, because of smurfs in the mid 1500? M7y advice is not to lose if your rating is 1580 or 1600 or you may be playing even harder oponents!

Uhh, andapandahh, that's not exactly what happened

I recall one game when i said reported.

2 guys were okishly.

Me and my ally were doubling one of them.

One of the is like: Stop doubling me!!!!

Then suddenly my ally is dissconnected and the guy that was doubled is like:

drop hack xD

Try doubling me now.

Yeah, if this happened to u, u were winning and suddenly ur ally gets disconnected adn the enemies say thye used drop hack, u know somwthings wrong.

Don't you counter drop hack simply by pushing "wait", not "drop player"?

Going back a few posts, regarding the 1590-1600 issue... I had an all out rushing strategy and i wanted to see how far i could take it. I was always between 1590 - 1645. Thereafter the skill of turtling building defenses, protecting villagers etc can overcome very early rushes. Also we get 1600 players that are inactive with AOM but are playing AOE3, when their server is down they come back and play games to up their rating. I am guilty of that since mine was down to 1600 before playing a few games to have a 1601+ rating for advanced setup.
(Old issue of smurfs, only sometimes they have no real choice.)

As for being doubled, make sure you get rid or distract your opponents siege (Cheiroboli, Hoplites, Promethians etc). Try avoiding his Raiding units even if it means relocating your resource collection at your partners base. The basic idea is to give enough time for your ally to come over and help with a super army, yours only needs to defend the town area.

Arcadia, Isis may be overpowered, but she is very hard to learn, and I am still learning!

That is the point of team play. I do not think that Lightmare can be blamed for coordinating himself well with his ally.
1v1 is so hard, what with all the smurfs around.

AND DON'T SAY THEY'RE NOT, because I've seen at least 3 people say 'oh ffs, another smurf' in the last day.
The interesting question is how many of them actually faced one, and how many are just sore losers that need the smurf blame to excuse their defeat.

Look, I don't need to blame smurfs. I went from 1600 to 1667 last night simply because I encountered 1v1s with accurate real rates. It's just some nights they all come out, like on a full moon. o_0

True. I'm pretty sure when the coalition of Rome, the Achean League, Pergamum, Rhodes, and Macedon attacked Sparta, Sparta didn't go 'AWW QUINTUPLE NO FAIRZZZZ', I should just stick to 1v1s, hehe.

I'm sorry Lightmare. I tried your BO today and it was really quite effective, only I used 2 stables, mixed in hops and archers and it became an army.
