This is something I just noticed playing ranked.
A lot of people play french, and all of them try the chivalry+archers rush.
I am main abbasid, I am tired of stop these rushes, so 100% of the matches I play against a french, I know what exactly he id about to do.
It’s ridiculous, just won every match against french with abbasid as I know what is he gonna do, and I know the exactly build order to not only stop the rush, but also counter rush and finish the game.
Seriously, people are playing strategy game, or playing a build order game?
This is not a complain post or a cry, in fact I won every match against these people, but it surprises me a lot.
People don’t want to play strategy, they just want to win by memorizing a build and doing it till the end of.the times.
Imagine a chess game where you know exactly what the opponent is gonna do… That’s exactly what happens playing 1v1 ranked.
If you are wondering how to counter this rush with abbasid, just do:
- 7 to food, 1 to build house and house of wisdom, then to food (8 food)
- 4 to gold, then the house of wisdom and press Q
- 6 to food, 5 to wood, 3 to gold
- 1 to build tower in french gold, 2 to stone
Next is, build horses, and pikers, then stop the first attack and upgrade the tower so they can’t get gold.
He will try to kill the tower, so move your troops, but keep an eye on the near gold, because he will try to get that gold. Raid this gold.
Build rams, finish the game.
