A awsome tactic by him.
Nice to see someone try something different.
Ages since I have seen or used his tactic but he did it so much better than me biggrin.gif

Worth a watch and maybe a wub for the never ending action smilie_naughty.gif

Maybe a review would be nice - points @ Gnats

Going air first just to do that engineer drop was stupid, should've got the drone upgrade relatively quickly then spammed factories, may even have been faster!

True supertribe

Now that I've been called stupid, nub etc. I think most things have been settled :-)

However, I'd like to have an explaination, now that I am such a "nub", for what reason(s) such a drop is stupid.

I understand that when going first air:
-my build-up is slightly slowed due to "unloading" the engineers from the air factory
-I am vulnerable to possilbe ground harassing and/or rushs
-I am behind in terms of land factories

If I go on to drop my engineers, I'll also have few build power in my base

However, from my "noobish" point of view, I have the following oppurtunities
-I can completely take out my opponents 2nd base and/or nearby factories destined for the front
->I might open up a 2nd front
->I might be able to break through into his main base (highly unlikely though)
-My opponent has to withdraw troops from the front to cope with the front or divert reeinforcements, thus allowing me to take the passages and push him back
-I can go T2 Air relativly fast, the disadvantage of fewer T1 landfactories is apparent, but easier to come by than a t2 air t1 air difference (so it appears to me)

I hope I didn't miss anything, so in how far are my points valid? Thanks in advance.

From what I have currently seen, this tactic is risky as hell, but can greatly tip the balance of the game to my favor.

Well, I didnt watch to the end because some noobish mistakes were driving me mad (I ended in the T3 PD duel part)

Ok, I noticed two main mistakes on Scalestor's side and both were noobish and critical...

Lack of scouting - had u scouted properly, you could have used the TMLs to gain a huge advantage and not wasted them on useless targets..

Huge huge huge wasting of mass - WTF were you thinking??? Had u used all the mass on anything (T3 air/land, T4) the game would have been in your pocket.

Ok, some more mistakes : Scalestor, do you know what engineer assisting is??? T2 airfac is useless if it doesnt build fast enough, build a factory producing engineers on repeat next time and use those engs to assist your production.

Shields! Later on, when you were having T3PD duels, Hells_Hound had insane ammount of shields and you didnt build even one.
