One day I was off work due to a snow day, and I decided to try out a real time game 4 players escalate on the classic evolved map. Since I’m new to this game, I really didn’t know what I was doing. This player in this particular game called me “an idiot”, which I responded “Thanks, I’m new and I’m still figuring things out”. The first several games I had different players try really weird diplomacies with me. I didn’t know what I was agreeing to and I’m sure my honorable rating took a hit.

Then I started to win a couple of games (which I’m sure was just shear dumb luck) and I was more curious to try out a team game. I assumed that people that were playing team games were more open to sharing ideas with me. I was lucky enough to have micky and th-child coach me on my first doubles game. I want to share what I learned to make the gaming experience more enjoyable for everyone.

So here is what micky & the-child taught me and what I figured out on my first 30 games…

1v1, 2v2 or 3v3 games it’s about keeping their deploys down, for multiplayer games 5+ more people it is good to pick an opponent and assassinate them as soon as possible, then move on to your next target.

Escalate games mostly dependent on luck. Luck is mainly involved in the drop & the dice (and sometimes one does have the "lucky set" with 3 cards at just the right time). It depends who can get the high reserves first and efficiently eliminate an opponent to get their cards for more reserves. The key to this is stay alive, be everywhere and get a card at each turn.

When faced with a choice of eliminating a small stack vs a large stack….choose to attack the large stack first (of course it might depend on the situation). At first I took this lesson with a grain of salt, but it’s now working for me! Try to keep the opponent’s stack down. Now, I know when to use the assault button vs the blitz button…and don’t over roll.

Always attack with at least 4 and always leave minimum of 2 troops on a region bordering an enemy territory.

In team games, it’s always a great idea to bounce off your ideas and make sure that everyone had a chance to look at the map….to take your time and not to rush your turn.

At the end of the day, no matter what your strategy is, the dice gods are either with you or without you….there is nothing you can do about it….which definitely brings an element of excitement!

Thank you micky and th-child for coaching me. Thank you for reading my post. If you are a newbie, PM and I’ll play with you. The best way to learn is by doing (at least that is the way I learn best).

Oh….and you know that player who called me an “idiot”….he lost that game….hehehe :)

Happy Hunting!

My winning streak is a team/collaborative effort of all the team games that I have joined. I dedicate my winning streak to micky, th-child, edmondtheknight, F15FreeEagle, ericjkline, engelbrekt1390 and clarkenfeld. Without these honourable players, my winning streak would not exist. They have taken the time to invite me to games and coach me and helped me look at the map in a different way. They made my first 3 months really fun (and addictive!) at MC. Cheers to them and Thank You Very Much! May I be able to pay it forward to a new recruit someday.
