Topic Subject: Need some tips on this...
posted 09-01-02 08:07 AM EDT (US)   
Ok, so I have been playing this game for like 5 months now, but I lost my CD case almost as soon as I had this game installed, so I have not played multiplayer until a few days ago when I found the CD case and subsequently the CD key to play MP. So now I am faced with an entirley different style of playing the game (as is usual in all games that have MP). Speed is of essence, especially in multi-epoch games.

Here's my problem:
In a pre-nano game, I am starting out with 5 villiagers and go from there. I try to make the best use of everyone and go straight for chopping wood and foraging until I can get stone age. Then I send more villiagers to the mines and get to dark ages in about 10 mins game time (i think). My scouting puppy confirms that everyone else is stone too. Next I make it to copper in less than 20mins since game started. And then Dark about 10mins after that.

Next thing I know, my allies and I are all getting attacked by massive forces of grenadiers....

and then within 5mins they are doughboys

Ok...I looked thouroughly at the after game stats, and there was no sign of foul play. Which leads me to believe they know something I do not.

So if you know what that is...post it here. I want to know. I am tired of being 4 epochs behind come battle time.

Like ca said, with higher settings its easier to epoch.

I would recommend to start MP with following settings;

Map: Plains
Resources: Tourney-Low
Start epoch: RANDOM
End Epoch: Space (or Nano)
Game Variant: Tournament
Speed: Fast
No wonders vic

NO reveal map
NO custom civs
rest three options YES

These are also called Ligasettings, and are most challenging to play. These will raise your skill level like heck. If you start with Standar resouces, you'll get used to that and won't move on to LOWER resources. It's always good to start from the difficultest.

*shocked*

Well, reveal map really helps. You don't need to search for resources.

I must try.

Hi Keln

I agree with Lt_surge99 about settings to play. If you see me online, whisper me and I will help you get better. One of the best ways to improve quickly is to observe good player games.

Actually it WOULD be one of the best things GHM, but usually good players do NOT let obersvers in their game.

Some good players dont, but I always let people observe my 1v1 matches if they ask politely. I will also anybody who wants to get better.
