First of all about the egg game, i was kind of fed up with asking over and over again to please Cbalance, instead of balance, so massacre and I could play togheter, this is what clantags are for.
still after asking constantly for cbalance, people would still non-clanbalance the game, which kinda blew the fun for us. I decided to do eggs, and see how it worked out.
Doing stupid stuff because you didnt get your way in options is borderline trolling and somewhat banworthy. CBalance was giving us really shonky teams, that whole day (I think something is broken in balance now, but thats for another thread).
about the mexes, sometimes instead of building 3 mex, you can build some more units that can give you the advantage on the battlefield so you can control the first bit of reclaim easier, which is ofcourse what you want.
A. You didnt make any cons or make any real effort to go for reclaim, and B. your rush died way in their side of the map, we had no chance to get the reclaim from those fights.
massacre and I have played a series of 2v2, 2v3 even with one player focussing purely on eco, while the other focusses on units + micro, this seemed to work very well, and we out forced + out eco'd our opponents constantly even in a 2v3.
It does work fairly well with you two working together, but basically anything works with two players co-operating. Just because it works with him and great teamwork doesnt make it any less of a stupid idea without him.
we have also tried to rush transes in a 2v2, without building any mexes, killed enemy commander with initial boost (defenses) get the reclaim, and win the game without building a single mex, this even worked against your top-players like skasi.
if you create a mod where this type of gameplay works, do not blame any players.
It only sometimes works, and when it fails it ruins your team for the game. Its essentially a massive gamble that often works, but is pretty irritating for your team if it fails.
I hope this explains some of it, sorry about the egg game, as said before i didnt really feel like playing, but eggs are so nice to micro
I would ask at the least that you tell your team before game start, and get the mexes after the initial rush, I had to bring cons down to your base at about 4 mins in, which is pretty appalling.
