Lets Plays from experienced players?
« on: October 16, 2013, 07:14:33 PM »
Hello,

I am new around here :)

Just wanted to ask a quick question: can someone point me in the direction of some playtroughs from experienced players? I am not searching for tutorials or guides, just a game played from start to finish. reason for that is that i have the feeling i am not progressing (eg getting better :) ) at AI:wars at all... so i wanted to take a look at how other people are playing.

Can someone suggest some videos? thanks!

edit:
of course i have searched on youtube and google - but i only found guides which explained the game overall or the first 15min of a game

thank you very much, i have already taken a look there - but i couldnt find any videos there. since english is not my native tongue, it is not so easy for me to read page after page in english... but maybe there are no videos because a game takes so long to complete?

Unfortunately, that's true. Games take so long and to outsiders aren't very interesting to watch, usually, hence so few videos. Text AARs are more popular and effective.
I can already tell this is going to be a roller coaster ride of disappointment.

We might be able to help if you tell us a bit about your games.  Things like what lobby settings you use, how many planets you normally take, how you spend your knowledge, what sorts of AIP you reach, and so on might give us enough information to spot any problems.  Or not, but you could try.

So you are looking for tutorials/guides.

Anyway. Check the after action reports and strategy discussions.
