Replays: 48 Game:
This is just one dangerous way to tie up the mid when your middle player has no clue. Note how my fighter bomber rush intimidates the mid cmdr and damages him to 1/2.

This is very risky and relies on your teammates to protect you. Note Aeon's Air and Sgt's navy that both help protect me while I turn my firebase into a severe distraction. I make a few Artillery T1 and raid mass points to keep Warner in a defensive mode. Until my shield is up and I have T1 PD, my firebase would have been easy to overrun.

Warner(Blue) does not get all the mass in the middle which later serves to upgrade my base.

Warner should not have allowed me to get the land base, in which case Plan B would have been to upgrade my cmdr to TML launcher and make T2 flack then TML'd Mass points of Blue and Green.

fighting an enemy with no ints at all and no radar coverage at 9min is no demo at all. (aside from the skills of your enemy)
5 t1 ints would have blown you away just there

That is why you scout ahead and draw off the interceptors.

These are more demonstrations of a tactic and not necessarily vs. pro players. New people need basic skills and wont use them vs. pros in their early games. I exploit lack of air in most of my games. It is the most common mistake on Setons.

Most replays desync so it is very hard for me to get a replay that shows the lesson and doesn't desync.

I'm surprised this has been WUB'ed. I want to warn people that is would be very risky vs. a good team with advanced sensors.

Some estimate that the reclaimed mass in the middle amounts to over 20,000. This is quite an advantage for a team, if the mid player overages this mass, in the early stages of the game.
