posted 10-02-05 09:39 AM EDT (US)   
A Question: (sry if it has already been here)
will ther be another ee2 Ladder?
Maybe wirh modern age epoch 15 or 13?
These ages are really balanced ( or the most balanced ages in the game)

This was my bad English^^

    I'd personnally stick with the mod.

    It's really great and a ladder could be a nice occasion to test epochs 6-10.

    Well the mod is only 1-5... all the other ages havnt been done... but anyways i think the rules will be any ages and either the hg mod or the retail version, this ladder will be more felxible than the others

    I don't think any epoch is balanced, in modern epochs there is no counter to Japenese zero rush.

    You mean those pathetic planes that crumple up when hit by a single bullet? (in real life anyways)

    Well heres the idea. Build as many AA defences in as many locations as you can, ideally the most important locations. Then, station mobile AA defences where your AA guns cannot cover.

    That should rip to shreds, or at least weaken a zero attack quite easily

    **edit**

    and if you still cannot hold the zero's off, then just destroy the hangars. Station satellites or balloons, and just wipe the hangar out with nuke bombers, ICBM's, or a concerted bomber attack.

    Oh yeah, you might want to destroy any AA defences en route to the enemy airports

    You won't have a chance to build aa or ICBM or they won't be effective againts zeros. I tested this a lot there is no real counter to this tactic if made well.

    in epoch 14 and 15 you can defend zeros.
    make some anti-air and u can counter well

    This was my bad English^^

    yeah ive tried out countering the zero rush (not in multiplayer, but 5 allied jap players vs me is enough rush for my liking), but i still stick with my strategy.

    no airports, no problems

    **edit**

    PS: what i meant in my first message ( my bad i phrased it poorly) was that you have to place at least 5 AA defences to the one location to be effective.

    Ie. Place say 5 or more AA emplacements near say a base camp or outpost area. Near the border buildings of that base camp, place a few more AA batteries. That way the aircraft may get split up, diverting some to destroy the outer AA defences, and thereby weakening the main attack, and if they dont destroy the outer AA defences, they will have their attack weakened anyway.

    Repeat this at every clump of frontier buildings you have.

    Then, in between clumps of buildings, place just a few aa emplacements to discourage and defend against enemy assaults by air. If you have your frontiers well defended, you will need very few (if any) aa defence moving towards the centre of your base. But realistically, after following my earlier strategy, just place a little flak everywhere.


    ***Edit2***
    You mentioned that ICBMs weren't effective against zeros, well there not supposed to be. You destroy the hangers and airports with them.

    apologies for the long post

    Do you simply think that you can build ICBM after zeros had killed all of your villagers in 3-4 min?
    posted 10-06-05 08:36 AM EDT (US)     12 / 20  
    a solution would be taht we play random civ as setting.
    Thats fair and again in 14 and 15 u can easy beat zeros, us have to play defensive but u can win the game at least after 5-8 min at tiny mapsize.
    At 11-13 zeros are very good i know, didnt play them much there

    This was my bad English^^
    posted 10-06-05 10:33 AM EDT (US)     13 / 20  
    In epochs 13+ fighters are really expensive when zeros are quite cheap and fast to create, they only require 2 res iirc, there is no waythat you can beat zeros after epoch 11 in 1v1 if player skills are equal.

    I've beaten zeros with mobile AA... and I've done it more than a few times, of course this was long ago. In fact I beat a 2v1 with players sending swarms of zeros at me... all I had was mobile AA and static AA with some light tanks to attack their base...

    was pretty eaasy to beat. but I haven't played in months now so I have no idea what's been happening.

    Are you also going to mod epochs 6-10?

    I ask beacuse you did an excellent work with 1-5. Or shall we wait for the 1.2 update?
