You know you suck at TA Spring when...

Post by hammydude »

Sorry if something like this has been posted before, I got bored and made this up. I based most of this on what has happened in game to me.

You know you suck at TA spring when:
1. You reclaim your ally's big bertha because you have no metal.
2. You nuke your teammate.
3. You try flea rushes 30 minutes into the game.
4. 20 minutes into the game you have ONLY economy units and have never build any defense/offfense
5. You try the same failed tatic over and over again.
6. Speedmetal is the only/main map you play.
7. You are low on metal on speedmetal
8. You debate over tactics on speedmetal
9. 30 minutes into the game you have 3 anti-aircraft after numerous air scouts fly over your base
10. You porce
11. You constanly beg your teammate for resources
12. (late in the game) Your main line of defence is LLT with no offensive units to help defend
13. You send out krogoths unsupported
14. You rely on your teammate for defence
15. You place all of your reactors and metal makers in one small area
16. You think that speedmetal is the best map.
17. Your username is (insert sucky player of your choice)
18. You build only defence
19. 5 pewees and 2 hammers destroy your entire base
20. You ignore your teammates advice (unless he is a newb).
21. You refuse to communicate with your teammate.
22. 5 Brawlers pose a serious threat to your base
23. All your windmills are built into a square
24. You com bomb
25. Your commander is your main line of defence late in the game
26. You d-gun the attacking raiders, along with half your allys base.
27. Huge amounts of k-bots are idle
28. When your ally says, "lets go air" you agree then continue building pewees
29. You got your star ranking by playing speedmetal
30. You host with dialup

Thats all i can think of for now....
If you can think of any, post them!

Update: Okay, I thought of a few more:
-You build your main line of defence in the middle of your base
-You try to win with krogoths on maps like small divide
-You attack with freedom fighters
-You send huge amounts of peepers into your enemies base just to be blown up
-You think com bombing isn't a newbish tactic
-You don't host because it "takes too much time"
-You don't host because you are too lazy to set up your router
-You accuse your oppenent of cheating because he beat you 3 times in 40 minutes
-The first thing you build after building a level one kbot/vehicle/airport and a conbot is a level 2 lab
-you dont use radar. At all.
-A single enemy air transport can get into your base, pick up your commander, and fly over your reactors, killing all of them

Screw you. Everyone always changes the game to comm ends while I'm not looking. If I knew it was comm ends I'd rush the center and cut off your lame comm push thing before you had a change to establish and make the only option for clearing the center a comm bomb.

3: You got to be kidding. flea rush 30 min into the game scouts the enemy wonderfull, I occasually do this.
8: Well have you ever payed speed metal against people who can actually play Spring? You need tactics mad. (And yes, you can actually have tactics on Speed metal. though they only work on the first 10 minutes)
24: this point is debetable. Though I rarly see people commbomb efficiently. It sometimes can be a tactical move.
25: Sorry, but why is this on the list? On the start he is your main defence.

I agree on all other points though ;) (nr 31 too)

Or fly in with an atlas and D-GUN their lab and adv solars! ( i did that on CC :D)


But srsly, com bombs are annoying, but not nooby. Com bombs can be used when you think you don't your usefull anymore, to end a game quicker, to help your Ally in a vital figth or maybe just teach that com pusher who's built a guardian close enougth to reach your base a lesson!

The best ally is an ally which builds an atlas and combombs with the coms of his allies :)

4. 20 minutes into the game you have ONLY economy units and no defense/offfense
what if your units have just been killed attacking? or you got rushed? even pros can get their plant lost in the 20 min mark
5. You try the same failed tatic over and over again.
as long as you vary it somewhat
8. You debate over tactics on speedmetal
it DOES have tactics. they aren't exactly my cup of tea but it does have them
9. 30 minutes into the game you have 3 anti-aircraft.
or you could have scouted your opponent with your airscouts and seen he is not going air and => not wasted resources
10. You porce
you freaking noob gamers don't even know how out of context you use that ffs...porcing = building big base and concentrating on defense (who said not to attack???) and in AA do you have any idea how effective this can be if you take enough of the map?
12. Your main line of defence is LLT with no offensive units to help defend
early on that is my defense as mostly my units are away, i only call in units if i see a small party of raiders instead of lone ones

15. You place all of your reactors and metal makers in one small area
easier to defend, as long as you have antis and some berthas of your own you'll be fine
17. Your username is (insert sucky player of your choice)
hammydude
hahaha
20. You ignore your teammates advice.
what if he's a noob?
22. 5 Brawlers pose a serious threat to your base
depends a few fighters can help but a spread out base will always be vulnerable to small groups of brawlers
27. Huge amounts of CON k-bots are idle
30. You host with dialup
i used to host with DSL and dial up users can probably host small 2v2's fine, i could host w/e with my 128Kbits, direct connection really helps. routers SUCK

-you build a huge level 2 naval force in the smallest lake you can find.

-you self-d all your defense line because you are "reorganzing" your base.

-your berthas cant fire, because they are in a crater or behind a wall

I would like you to read point 24 again (I think it was that one). It says "you com bomb."

So, why are you even com bombing in the first place, if you aren't a noob?

You obviously have some agressions. Want to take it out on the battlefield? I am sure you would win since I am not really that good. It might make you happy.

2. You nuke your teammate.
If hes a real ass then and useless it can be acceptable.
3. You try flea rushes 30 minutes into the game.
Scouting Mission?
10. You porc
Porcing can work, most of the time it dosn't though.
13. You send out krogoths unsupported
This can work, easily.
14. You rely on your teammate for defence
Thats just dumb. A good tactic is using a player as a meat sheild, while you stock up on air in the back.
24. You com bomb
Combombing I think is acceptable if its on your half of the map. If its on the other half then its just gay.
30. You host with dialup
I can host 4 people laglessly on my 45k. On a max 22x22 map (AFAIKO). Dont talk about what you dont know about.
-You attack with freedom fighters
It can work if enemy has no AA.

3, 13, 14, 15, 23, 24, and the first 5 of hammydude's new ones are all valid tactics.

The others aren't. Except for maybe porcing. But it depends on how you define porcing.

-You attack with freedom fighters
That's actually not all that bad, especially early in the games. If you take out the enemy AA, or if he has non to begin with, a fighter attack can be quite devastating.

Or captures all his allies commanders to make a elite drop squad.
I though that was made impossible?
