Okay, 3 games in there, all Kronos rushes.
Against an Egyptian, a Titan and a Norse.

This is my first post here. Never played online (slow net connections).

I am not doing any fishing, to save on villager time. Plus using scouts to destroy the AI dock, to kill its advantage.

I usu can beat the AI in 6 mins, when playing Loki. But the Kronos rushes tend to be longer; about 10 mins. Are these rush-times standard? Is there any scope for improvement?

chucknthem I can't watch the rec right now because I uninstalled the game to study for my tests and do school projects, so I'll tell you some general things.

hardly anyone plays lighting online, and I've only had 1 lightling game ever, so I don't know if those times are good. in that game I beat a 1700+ supremacy player(one of my friends who invited me to try it in the frist place, hoping he would pwn me ^^) in under 9min.

from that one game, I see that lightning is very different. you need only 10 villigers(all you can build) and tehy pretty much get you enough to do want.

I've playd the AI on death match also, and they seem to really suck, I assume they would suck too in lightning because it is fast passed like deathmatch and the AI sucks at attacking quickly and effectively, especially if it's anything other than supremacy/conquest.



titan AI is very tough in supremacy, you have to really abuse the AI stupidity like building walls with a hole or chokepoint in the middle of no where(so they don't see your base next and attack it) hten lead them to it, and just snipe them off with some archers and micro your "meat shield" around in circles. building spamming also works quite well against titan AI. I once building spammed as poseiden and when they destroyed my buildings they would try to kill my militia but I get them to run away and the AI keeps chasing them, so I keep doing this and he leaves his base/ villigers open to atatcks. (it's hard to micro all your groups of militia running away, so you shoulc control group them if you try it)

also, sometimes a good rush can kill an AI in supremacy, but usually not. you need to abuse their weakness.

I think their was a game posted on AOTS where one guy beat 2 titans at once on anatolia by dock spamming as thor, the AI just kept trying to destroy all the docks, allowing the player to boom and get mythic for firegiants and ragnark.

also, I think there was a competition on this site a long time ago(way before I was here, I just found teh recs a little while ago by searching) hwere ppl abused posiedens militia by rushing an AI with villigers building stuff near enemy TC and getting it destroyd for militia while he uses them to haras the titan AIs villigers. I think the fastest defeat was under 10 min which is amazing for a sup game on titan AI.


oh and about the time, give us some supremacy times and we'll tell you if it's good or not(not against a titan computer of course since it's pretty hard to beat one and they have a very unfair advantage, and most of us don't play against AI much anyway other than to test a build order(which I really need to start doing because my build orders suck :D))

but just post some classical times and how long it took to beat a hard AI or maybe 2 if you're either a pretty good ofline player or abused alot of the AI stupidy I mentioned above^_^ and we'll give you some more specific comments

thanks chucknthem.. the spamming thingy is new to me, will try that.. though it doesn't sound to be in the spirit of a rush. i mean might take too long to setup those building esp. with kronos.

well, i have only played lightning for rushes. will try supremacy and post about it later. (tried one supremacy in titan mode, and i agree. it's amazingly difficult)

can manage 1v2 and 1v3 in hard mode, esp playing as Loki. but that's again in lightning mode.

btw, why don't people play lightning here often? it requires a lot of reflex decisions, n has shorter play times..
chucknthem you're welcome, I've only been playing this game since mid 2005, and lightning online was already dead then, so I don't know why ppl didn't like it, and as I said I've only tried to play it once, so I don't know if I even like it or not.
a_game_a_win I use to kronos rush all the time (91 straight games to be exact)

What I have found out is always make a dock with like 6 ships or even less. And dont spam turma. Start murms once you have the chance.
