i tried krushing him,but i had to make one of my oracles a hero (i should have just let him die) and that really through me off. so i got to classical to late to have a very effective krush, combined with the fact that he was turtling and that he was playing hades and had his sentinals up. i continued to raid him throughout the game until he finally resigned. i thought it was over when he earthquaked my forward base, but he didnt press the attack. i think we were both using lower scores then we actually had, with the " beginner setting" which you only get for the first ten games. anyway, i want you guys to tell me a better strat to beat this kinda of guy. should i have boomed, and made a big attack? anyway, thanks for the help. obviously, im pyro786.
