What you are noticing is not the game changing. It is you becoming skilled enough to realize what has always been the truth. When i realized this, back in BA, its like the whole game opened up and became hollow. Team games were about who got the noobs, and now, about who gets the unreliablly ranked players.
This is the point at which you start playing 1v1's if you want a serious game.
Its not 'you cant expect teamwork in pub games', either. Its 'you cant expect teamwork from noobs'. We had a couple of rather good 2v2's last night, with all good players. We had teamwork, cooperation, and everyone held up their side (mostly).
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
Well, i forgive you for this, but dont say 'yo its a valid strat dont judge my play dude'. You were annoyed and tried a silly strat. I do this kind of stuff too, like air and gunship rushes, and sometimes something good comes out of it (like BD rush). You admit it wasnt a good strat and you were kinda just trolling: But try to realize that sometimes clans playing together will seriously stack teams. It can be as fun to play against a friend as with them. If you really dont want to play, then vote exit or dont ready. If people dont !cbalance, and you think it will make balanced teams, elect a boss.
Not capping your 3 starting mexes is always
a bad idea though. The longest i can imagine going without capping mexes is using your boost to pump out units, then immediately walking to the frontline to push, and making a con (with the sloow factory buildspeed) and capping the mexes with that. But even this is a risky and i would say inferior strategy.
If one player gets pissed and does this, its okay. It becomes a problem if it becomes popular because people think its actually a good strat, or start to think the way lucky said.
