I'm on a roll

Post by Highlander999 »

I'm on a roll. I know it's not much but I have played 4 games with GB and won all four times, generally quite comfortably. In 1v1's my plan is to semi-FF by using outposts to protect my base. Generally the opposition panicks and trys to go Fortress and by the time he reaches fort my upgraded army crushes his colonial army. It seems to be working pretty well on sarg and m/sarg. I now want to play an officer and see it works against them.

LOL Just realised the guy I just beat was a 1 Lieutenant on TWC. That makes the victory all the more sweeter. In the words of the famous prophet who wears sunglasses,

"I'M BACK"

LOL LOL LOL According to elorating I am now currently ranked seventh in the clan.

Congratulations and look at your ELO rating!
Ive been thinking, if you get on a roll and got good elo rating, isnt it better to play some N3O mates?So if you loose, the points stay in the clan?

And if you are on a loosing streak, play some none N3O guys and get some points from then?

My roll is back on. I'm now safely into the 2 lieutenant category. Very pleased as I had a 1v1 unrated against Chaos to warm up then played 3 games all with victories (the second one was more luck due to OOS then anything else) My just sit back on my rank now as I have a nice winnng % as well :D

Pretty pleased

Congrats. Wish I could say the same, I've had a real rollercoster of recently consiting of: 8 wins, 5 losses, 1 win, 6 losses, 2 wins.
All in all I got up to 22.6 (1st lt) and dropped down to 21.2 (2nd lt).

You can definitely get to 1st Lieutenant, Strokey, and stay there.
