Sorry about the drops Thursday night. I was having ISP problems for some reason. My ping went to *****as the game was launched with Jihad_Jake and I was hung up. I canceled and waited hoping Jake would return to the lobby. I joined up with RajunCajun still watching for Jake but the game started quickly. Unfortyunately, I lost my connection in the game with RajunCajun and was dropped. My ISP (ATT) is usually pretty reliable but not tonight.

I will be out of town this weekend but I hope to meet up with you guys again early next week.

Not a problem, actually I got to get beat my neilkaz. Well, he didn't get to kill me, but both my allies and so I left so I could examine the map, plus I had no attack to speak of, I let a shang live to get 20 CAs he destroyed my forward base.

The game Jehu was reffering too was a 3v3 coastal default. The map was a wierd coastal, like a med. map with water in the middle. Anyway I was Minoan at three, our ally (red) was at twelve and the trusty Jehu (Hittite) at nine. I got a great start with three shore fish and was cruising when Jehu dropped. That was bad news. Red asked me if we had a chance. I told him lets just do as much damage as possible. With my lucky start I bronzed first and sent some compys to yellow which was at eight, right below Jehu's old spot. If Jehu wouldn't dropped, I could have went right to the strongest opponet which was blue at six. However I had to engage yellow. Before I could advance my twenty compys and two ST's locked horns with wave after wave of blues compys. Red was holding his ground with yellow nicely. I couldn't get past blues compys so i decided to iron and sneak behind blue. I trannyed to the back of blues island and dropped some siege workshops. After I ironed I sent some cats and ballistas into blues backyard razing as i went. I guess that distracted blue because red actually gained a little ground. I sent some triemes in to harass blues considerable fleet of fishing boats. Blue finally got annoyed enough to stamp my annoying prescense out and I was defeated due to nothing left but a tranny. I watched a little bit as they started pounding on red then left.

Man, if Jehu wouldn't have dropped it would have probably had a different ending. I saw Scarab on. How did you fare?

Played a game with scarab tonight, I had my worst lost in months. I got tooled so hard it was unbelievable. Then when I want to get him, I ran into his buddy, my neighbor in bronze! It was their pocket player that tooled me, so now Im still in tool while getting creamed by bronze units, I run to my pocket players area. I'm left with 4 peons, ouch!

So now scarab can confirm that Im a crappy player. LOL

That game last night was brutal. If our playing ability is going to be judged on that game alone, we'll never be let out of the rookie rooms! Here's how it went down:

3v3, gig, cont, 125 pop, speed 1.5

I honestly don't remember what civ's Capt and our ally took, but I had Minoan and I was killed by an Assy. I started at 2 and I found yellow (Assy) at 12 around the 8 minute mark. I had a decent amount of villes so I sent 5 up to build raxes and have some fun. I got one up before he swarmed me with his villes. Capt was letting us know that he was getting tooled hard. I tool, and start killing a few of yellows vills before he finished his wall. I build a range and figure that yellows going to get hurt. (upps) I get about 4 bowman out when all of a sudden.....my bowman are getting shot at, by only 2, no 3, uh oh 4 CA's. At the same time, yellow hits my flank with a bunch of CA's and wipes out all of my villes. Dead in the water (actually, I was doing great in the water) the final insult came while I watched my TC get walled in.

Initially, I was planning on playing a few games last night, but after that @ss wooping, I decided to sleep it off.

I didn't get beat that hard when I went one on one with House_Atreides.

next time we'll do better Capt

Well Scarab I continued to play that night and boy did I play. I played 2 more games that night. The first one was a 2 hour grueller with Plghh(carth), _Og(carth) on my team and Darq_oneeye(assy), PSprince(yammy), and Partybarge(minoan) as enemies.

Well, I lucked out on the random draw and got shang, though my other partners both got carth. I was on the south end at 6, plggh at 12 and og at 3. Party unfortunately was at 4:30. Well, I have suffered many tag teams but this was the cake, I was tooled by prince that I was able crush, then Party's rushed w/ compies that I am barely holding against. Oneeye now sends 3 scout boats that start harrassing my fishing boats. Last 15 of prince's cav come storming in taking out the stone throwers that I had intended on hitting party's compies and move princes new vacation retreat next to my town.

So I do what I do best, run! Princes cav chase me, so I split all peons in different directions and only lose 3 peons in the whole transaction. On their travels I went right thru party(at 4:30) and oneeyes towns (at 10:00).

Lucky both plghh and og begin kicking some serious butt that I am able to relocate in three areas, iron and help finish the game by getting scythes to a gold depleted map.

Next game, Partybarge, Red_Rocks and me, against duck of death and two others I didnt know. I got yammy, red got shang and party got assy against 2 chosons and another slow civ. Needless to say it was the first time I have done an scout/axer/slinger/scoutboat rush in my life while still pulling off a 16 min bronze. Game over in 24 minutes, and I was the only one of my teammates not iron, only 56%.

It's amazing how a couple of wins lift the spirits of such a horrible eariler loss.

Axeman/scout/slinger/scoutboat rush? And you bronzed in sixteen minutes! Are you going to write the strategy guide on how to pull that off?

I'm glad to see that the tide changed for you last night. I've got a feeling I'll be playing until the wee hours of the morning today (after work of course ). Who knows, maybe I'll suddenly 'get sick' here at work and have to go home at lunch. Do you think they'd buy the "my stomach hurts" line?

LOL...I'm feeling a bit ill myself...hehe.

Yes this is Capts strat guide. Make any and all units in tool to hurt your neighbor, then hurt him as much as possible. LOL, it was seriously the best tool I ever pulled. Though Red pulled a sub 14 min bronze and hit their pocket player at the 13 min mark with some bowman. He always is a show off. LOL

It was one of those glory games. Now if I could do that consistantly, I will write a serious strat guide. It will be titled Capts Guide to delicious Yams.....umm ummm good!
