Dutch (me) vs Ottomans (him). The map is sonora and both players have decent hunts. I try not to be lame and stick it out in colonial for a while with skirms and pikes while he does a silk road semi-FF taking some early map control with jans.

I manage to take out his rax and one TP before he reaches fortress, but his age up troops + the threat of spahi force me back. I start putting out more pikes while he spams vet jans and shipments at me, forcing me into my little corner. 2 falc shipment is mean

Watch as 40 skirms one shot kills his artillery once I reach fort . GG

Hey great job Seph, I really like seeing someones mouse pointer move around, it shows you how fast people can click.

Ooh Rain still plays? Hmm, the old Ottoman master and the ex-Ottoman master. This should be interesting.

I noticed that when you attacked buildings, they crumbled away. How do you turn that option on? Whenever I destroy buildings, it just disappears...

It was pretty cool. However, rain's unit choices didn't seem very good. He shuold have either gone hussar+abus (but hussars don't seem to exist to most ottomans) or falcs + some jans. It looked like he was going falcs+jans, but he didn't make enouh falcs for it to work.

Agreed. Also, he let you sit back and boom way too long. Very early on he should have given up on the jans and made abus and hussars.

meh. A 30 min download.... Its going at 300kbs, which is a good speed, but i tend to come up as yellow ping for a lot of browser games on eso2, does anybody know why that might be?
Its worth it though, so much better than a rec game. I have to play with the lowest graphics settings so its nice to see what the game is capable of...

In order to make building crumble effect on, just turn your graphics up.

Abus + Hussar is nice, but I can just go hussar + skirm and win anyways (which I usually do).

My graphics are actually turned down a bit so that the game doesn't lag while FRAPS is recording

Win? or go HUssar skirm lol.

Entretaining game to watch as usual, and on a side note those Skirms are OP, NERF NERF skirms shouldnt counter their counters, one cannons should be able to take 70 skirms easy WTF?!

Actually, about 15 cannons should be able to take down skirms easily. Of course, that's not quite cost-effective (wood and gold) nor time-effective, nor pop-effective, so let's say 10 cannons.

how do you have your hotkeys so that when you select a building it doesn't auto center on that building?

hotkeys shouldnt centre on the building unless you double-press the hotkey, or hold ALT as you press teh hotkey number....

If you have ur barracks hotkeyed "1" you should be able to just press 1 to bring up the options for the barracks without it centering.

cant answer that cos i deleted the file after watching it, but you can see his group hotkeys at the top of the screen on the VOD. From memory, he has 2 hotkeys from the beginning, the scout, and something else.

I use Ctrl Group 1 for Explorer, 2 for secondary explorer (later rax), and 3 for stable, 4 for artllery foundry.

do you feel it is faster/easier to have different control groups for each building? like 2 for rax, 3 for stable, 4 for artil range rather than just using group 2 as all 3 buildings?

ctrl groups are 4 noobs!

i agree. unfortunately im in that catagory so i use them. i link all the buildings i want to group 2, then typically put hand inf into group 3, range inf into 4, hand cav into 5, ranged cav 6, cannons/culv 7, 8 boats, 9 vils(early herding,fwd build,sevastopol abuse).

that isnt always the case, but for the most part it is.

i cant recall from the vid but do you hit 2 for your rax then another key to queue xbow or pike or do you click with the mouse?

hotkeys are cool. I guess he uses them but I dunno.

I use them too, I just feel so great when I know instantly that x stands for xbow!
