How a 13 year old plays Warzone 2100

Postby Tux101 » 16 Nov 2014, 00:00

To be honest that was a good title, considering how I play...

Before you try to teach this year 7 to take the intiative to attack I am just saying that I know what I am doing when I turtle. I mainly turtle because I love to see my technology smash those enemy units. I have managed to solve many turtling problems. I mainly play T3 advance bases with a hard ai and me vs the rest of the medium ai.

I dare you to play a T3 skirmish game on the map Hide'n'Seek. Use turtling stratergies and tactics. Then put your savefile on dis thread. If you need some turtling help then just ask me.

Unfortunately, the forum is telling me that "The extension gam is not allowed" or I would have uploaded my savegame. :(

Here is a screenshot though! :D

My settings were: ffa with insane nexus AI, though 1v7 with insane nullbot would probably be harder.

To be perfectly honest I would never put insane null bot. Nexus yes but Nullbot on insane is just gonna kill you before you can even locate his base.

I see you have gone with the option of putting all your defenses on the ridge. Did you do that with units or not? Even though I turtle I sill relie on units to help me get pass the first stage. Anyway good going Overlord!

Awesome!

Using Contingency I set up a bunch of units to defend the base until I got a fortress or two up. Then I researched like mad until my build menu was tab apon tab of defensive structers. Then I started building a wall around my base. Behind that wall was arty. That left a walk way for any trucks to repair critically damaged structers. Then I made use of the Super Transports and built a second base in the top left corner.

I was 13 when the game first came out and the tech tree stopped at heavy cannon and cobra bodies, played many turtle games against the ai though, before dialup internet usage became a flat rate fee and then rushing was the way forward.

Ohh the nostalgia.
