So after about a year of not playing I came back to it. I only beat this guy because he made a ton of mistakes and was pretty bad at raiding. He built a FB and tried to rush me early on. I weathered the storm and built a stronger economy. After he chose to build a TC next to mine and I destroyed it I sent all my extra troops to destroy his FB, where there was a bunch of houses too. This caused him to get popped out and my army was like driver ants destroying everything in its path. I forgot to use rain GP but it didn't matter much.
Anyway, if anyone has any tips for me to try to remember, I'd like to hear 'em. And sorry for not posting a loss but my losses have been fairly embarassing.
