This was sent in as a possible "explosion trainer" use by Hyde. Ehrm...I'm 99% sure it was a gasbag guys :) There were a few there, then poof there were none and some red units died.
quik summary: weed does some effective bombing and stalls both teams out. Problem is weed only did 1 mex before air and is stalled himself. Weed demands e and m. Meany isn't in a very caring and sharing mood but does help him out some.
TA_Dad stalls for so long its maddening. Next time shut off factories untill u can get your mex redone :) Also don't go 2nd factory when u have lost all your mex to bomber.
Hyde rebuilds relatively quickly and probes a bit with some slashers.
There's a small skirmish in the middle on meanys side and some gasbags explode killing 5 or 6 already wounded units of meanys. He tells partner a trainer may be involved and weed gets defensive if :P
Anyhoo Hyde does some weird building, neglecting to pump units or resources and gets run over by weed who now is building nicely and getting out both. Weed almost caught up with Meany despite being stalled forever early. had a pretty solid build for a situation where u were being attacked. Thing is u werent hehe...WAYYYYY too many mts IMO. Maybe Dad is a friend and you were taking it easy on him I dunno. This wasn't a long game but if not for the porc it woulda been VERY short.
Oh btw Dads UC was so low coz he hardly made any, and what he did never really moved :)
Bottom line: Didnt see cheating. Not a real fun watch.
Tips: 1.More mex before fac. (Meany did well at that)
2.Take more map when you know other guy is hurting, less defense.
3.Ask nicely when you need metal or energy.
4.Try and produce enough of your own so as not to stall or be a burden.
5.If you stall cut off a factory for a few seconds.
6.Pump out units to attack with and keep them moving when attacking.
Hope this wasn't too harsh, it's late, plus I was hoping to witness the "explosion trainer" hehe :P
