Awhile ago I played against this guy on China Inf and I was on GLAV and he just sold his CC and built 2 barracks in the middle and he spammed RG and TH and sent them all to my base while I only had supply center a barrack and an Arms dealer with not much supplies.

No, because you can follow up by building a tunnel near his base (I usually do with my first worker), follow up by technical + rpgs to kill his dozers, and follow up with more tunnels. Just continue to make more units after that.

But it's not predictable to know when he does that and that rush strategy is getting old. Wouldn't work since he has 1 dozer 2 barracks and 100 RG and TH at my base. Its a reall cheap strategy that is unpredictable and hardly defeatable with GLAV.

I did rush but by the time my 1st tech and 4 rpgs came out The TH got to my Technical and the 10 or so Red gaurds killed my rpgs.

If this is fair in war, what is the equivalent meaning of fair in love?

What he said, Lol. He had a good strategy, he won, I honestly don't see what your problem with his strategy was.

doh! course not?

why would it be cheap, because it is unpredictable? whats a rush if u can 100% predict it?

it worked i guess, so it is a good rush.. against u anyway lol!

it aint cheap in any way


There must be some kind of way out of here...

well... I don't see seriously how he was faster at spawning units, it takes more time usually since he has to build at least a core center or 2, maybe you were a bit slow...

My biggest problem in Zero Hour is defeating a US SW on an island map... I play GLA so no air support, and the other guy can just build 1 raptor I cannot do any technical rush... there I'm done... every vehicle that comes close get's disabled, he sends some planes, spawns an army of choppers and by the time I know it I've been trying to enter his base I got lots of units killed and he just... destroys me... any help?

Im still a noob at mastering ZH units, but i can assure you that if you build a few anti-tank, a few anti-air, and a few anti-inf, youre preety much invincible vs 80% of the online players... LOL. No micro needed after that.

So yes, It would seem a tad unbalanced, but I think not. It all comes down to knowing each units capability? So if youre unsure about what to build end-game, a few of everything never hurts!

Here is his strat:
1. SELL CC
2. Build 2 barracks near the middle
3. Rush me with an incredible amount of RG and TH

I had 2 Supplys, 3 tunnels 10 workers, 1 AD, 1 barrack and a stinger site and I was on GLAV, my ground units were RPGS and 1 technical.

He used a pretty boring strategy IMO and even though all is fair in lover and war it was still cheap as heck cause he just killed my technicals with THs and my RPGs with red gaurds.

And what Core center? There is no such thing and GLA units build slower than other factions because they are workers not dozers.

anyone who does that strat is a total noob, just go behind their base, own up all the dozers/supply trucks with a rpg tech. Defend your base with tunnel spam + quads.

Agreed with Rod.

If those barracks get annoying you can load up 2 (or is it 3?) Terrorists in a Technical,
drop them off at the barracks, and destroy it.

Your first priorities though should be to take out his Dozers + Supplies.

Most pathetically crap inf strat that could be used, every team can counter it with ease. As GLA you should be expanding across the map, but when his hordes come, get some toxin tractors & it wont last for long. As China, its even easier to own this useless inf rush, flame tank spam > infantry spam, Usa can just get firebases up in front of it, some ambo/vee's to clean the rest up.
