Another VOD from sephi . The matchup is french (me) vs dutch (him) on California. I know a lot of people have trouble with this matchup, especially with the advent of the mRcheese CM FF, but this is a good alternative to the double rax rush.

I go for 15 cdb + TP discovery while he does 4 bank FF. With the awsome power of Stagecoach TP's and cdb economy in combination with OP xbows and hussars, not even the great dutch FF can match

Oh yeah, and I replaced the in game music wit some of my own. I thought the first song is rather fitting, given my name

nicely done VOD.

music would have been even better if it was played in game.

i dont know why he didnt bother getting 1 or 2 tps nor why he insisted on making ruyters - countered badly by xbow and skirms - countered by both xbow and hussars.

he really should have shipped 4 outposts and built vet hussars and few skirms to kill pikes.

Dude, one-winged angel is an amazing song. You could've done better on the quality though, this sounds almost midi-like in its rigidity. Get the remake off of the advent children soundtrack, it's incredible.

I didn't know that NanoX and NadoZ were the same guy :P

You could have put that music into your game Seph, all you have to do is replace the music files in the sounds folder.

Thanks to all those that signed the petition to get me unbanned here.
And special thanks to smashnbash for making it.

So I can listen to my own music while playing aoe? Awesome, thanks for the tip.

Do I delete all the other music files and put in my own? Can I put in more than one?

I always get Nado and Nano mixed up. Their names are too similar . Fortunately, my awsome mod powers can cover my mistakes .

I can only concentrate with the normal in-game music on, so I just edit in better music while reformatting the file.

And yes, dragonforce = win.

Again I ask, do you have recordings for those that can't download such massive files?

240 MB isn't that big

Unfortunately, I can't get recordings for half these games because I use QS, and I always get red for some reason.

On a side note, has anyone not gotten red against iros before in qs? It seems like iro players automatically get blue, and as such games are never recorded.

240 megs is huuuuge.

you can download TV episodes which are like DVD quality and 45 mins long and those are 300-350mb. I suggest you use an xvid encoder, wmv sux.

TV-rips generally have much less resolution.

i think these ones are OK in terms of quality/res/file size.

but you should use either x264(in mkv form) and wmv9, both are better than straight wmv.

do it in 720P next time. :P

Same here Saruman.

Nice VOD again

xbow+hussar rocks, whenever I'm french I just go for the double rax xbow, but maybe Hussars are worth it for them to try and always make ruyter only to die to xbows *mishchief*

thanks again for the VOD matt.
When you attacked him and you were obviously happy to sit under his TC fire, and with his villagers all sitting out working, i would have microed most of my units to kill his settlers as my instinct would be to damage his economy.
Another thing is, i would really avoid coming under TC fire as you did.
Could you explain to me your decisions there please? (obviously you thought you could win the battle, but im just trying to understand the situations where you would/wouldnt do this, so as to improve myself.)

Nice game, though i think nadoz's unit choice was well off. Xbows get 1.5 vs ruyter but nothing extra vs halb, also halb owns xbow once they get close and beat hussar much faster. Halbs would have been a much better choice imo.

Yeah, halbs would have been smarter than ruyters, though they are harder to avoid fire with than ruyters are. Halb + Skirm or Halb + Falc is tricky to deal with if not in fort yourself.

@scriv: There are a few principles to the game that will generally dictate how one should play it out. In this case, he did an economic fast fortress, while I did an economic rush. It isn't wise to do a full out rush vs dutch because CM will wipe cost you more than you can produce, meaning you will eventually lose. On the other hand, FF'ing along with him is suicide, as dutch can reach fortress with a much better economy.

What I was trying to accomplish here was this: keep his army low, not allowing him to mass anything. If I can swarm him quick enough, he will never be able to use his powerful economy to its full potential, meaning he will fall behind militarily. If I had let him breathe even a little that would give him enough time to build some units that I really can't deal with, such as saloon mercs or falc + meatshield. It's then when I start to lose my advantage.

TC fire is negligible with armies growing to those sizes. Remember that a TC kills just one xbow every 6 seconds, but I can produce 5 xbows every 27 seconds (plus 5 hussars on top of that). Meanwhile, it's costing him 30 vill seconds per shot, so in the end, I win out militarily.

Hope that wasn't too confusing

240 MB isn't that big [q/]

Sorry, I tried to download it and I see your point 21 hours isn't that big of a wait.

In fact the wait compared to the 3 days I had to wait for a gigabyte of another program this almost seems like nothing!
