First game online ? First 1v1 game ? First games in x years ?

Anyway well done, though you will need a lot of updates in your gameplay to beat stronger players wink.gif

Only way quads can rush an USA base if is the vees are distracted somewhere else, but you have no chance to fight them directly. Use a load of technicals and rocket trooper instead if you want an army that can face the vee, and buggies in the lategame. Sending a few random quad to harass chinooks and firebases like you did can be good though, but 1 or two per side is enough. Or at least attack from two different sides at the same time with aggressive tunnels already being in place if you really wanna use mass quads.

Your arm dealers placement are unecessary far from your supplies since you are supposed to use tunnels and you float too much money.

Try numbering your arms dealer by pushing ctrl button and the "1" or "2" key that are above your keyboard letters ( not the numeric keypad ), that way you can just press those numbers again to produce from your arms dealer without having to scroll and click on it.

You should definitely add a number for your main army too to select it fast and easy no matter what your previous action was ( press number 1 time to select it and two time to select + center your camera on it ). Once you get used to it, it will help you a lot.

Funnily enough, the fact you did not number your first tech terror and completely forgot about it made you kill 4 vee, since your opponent drived over it biggrin.gif

First game may be after 10 years and first ever online game.

Im still learning hotkeys..
Arms dealer placement would have been better.
skipped tunnel in base. many more mistakes..

Btw, i didnt forget the TT. i just lost it. I was orange and i could not spot it.
but it helped me anyway.

I was GLAv. i get rangers on bike.

Putting a terrorist on a bike is a very noob move that is bad to do 99.9% of the time, Metti was joking on himself since he used to do it as a beginner tongue.gif


You would not have lose your tech terror if you numbered it. Your "main army" is often gonna change and at the start it's usually just a tech, a single tank or the first hum vee, basically it has to be your current most important unit or group of units.

Next step is to number a secondary army to micro multiple units at a same time, but as a beginner you don't need to worry about it for now. Focus on numbering hotkeys for two prod buildings and one main army and only when you're comfortable with that you should go with the next steps.

It's great if you also learn hotkeys for producing specific units and building fast ( note that you can change it according to your preference if you have one hour to spend on the matter ), however it's not the most urgent thing and you can be a decent player even without that.

Also the space tip from Metti is very important in this game. Press space to go back to the last notification you get in game, super important to do that and also the reason you also need number on your prod building and army, so you can go from one point to another of the map keeping track of everything with minimal scrolling.

Nice, nice, just taking the middle at some point indicates potential. Keep on posting replays, getting reviews and comments, and having fun.

If you'd like some ease of use hotkeys, please check out this hotkey topic.

It marks out every hotkey in the game, so you don't have to think to remember what is what. smile.gif
