Obviously you're doing something wrong bud, you might do with a good reading something intelligent instead of blasting something which you can't trump yourself.

For one, this should be on the wiki, it's *designed* for this kind of stuff.

Secondly, it would be a lot more readable if it were saved in PNG format; JPEG is intended for photos, not black-and-white line drawing (JPEG is the reason for that ugly light-grey background colour on all text).

And, most importantly, this whole thing would benefit hugely from clickable links:

For those of you unable (or too busy) to read Szeweningen's excellent manual, here is my own manual - please dont take it (too) seriously :) (reposted here to make your lives easy).

How to Play Europe 3v3 (badly).

Chapter 1. Picks. The picking stage is not so important - dont waste time on it - get onto the fighting! If you really want to take things seriously, then go for big starts (those are best, right) especially ones right on the edge of the map - this allows you to stay safe (important point - 3v3 games are exactly like FFA games, so play just the same as usual) whilst your less intelligent teammates fight to their deaths in the center. Spain and Greece are always good choices. Also, if you are playing cities starts, try to go for the same bonus regions as your teammates - this helps teamplay enormously, and always makes you popular!

Chapter 2. Expansion. Starting in larger regions means it takes you slightly longer to get bonuses (but hey, they are bigger when you get them right!). If your teammates (who are stupidly dying in the center against superior enemy numbers (what noobs!)) ask you for help, or suggest you change your orders - just ignore them - they are just trying to drag you down with them. Much better to be the last man standing on your team than to die early. Remember that it is always best to get as many bonuses as you can BEFORE engaging any enemies.

Chapter 3. Tactics and Fighting Strategy.
The main thing to remember here is that your enemies will fight just like the AI does (and about the same as players do in FFA). This makes it easy for you to decide your moves. In particular, it is always best to hit your enemies early, with medium-sized forces (enough to break the enemy as they are at the start of the move - no need to use more men than you need). And remember, if things dont go quite right, it is always the 'luck' that was the problem (unless, of course, it was your noob teammates).

Chapter 4. Good Teamplay.
Since you have now read almost all of this guide, you are quite clearly a warlight expert. This means you dont need to discuss starts (you already know that only noobs bother about starts) and strategy with teammates. If they persistent in trying to tell you what to do, you have 2 options: (1) ignore them on the chat, maybe they will stop trying, and you can get on with the game in peace. (2) persuade them that they are wrong and you are right - use expletives and insults if necessary to get your point across. In the worst cases, attack your teammates until they stop telling you what to do.

This is a pretty impressive guide szeweningen. Yes, I think you should put this on the wiki. However, most noobs (like ironheart) is unwilling to read it, which is a shame, thus, I suggest condensing the contents to make more attractive to reade

Ironheart, you're the reason we put limits on open seats in our games. It's partly that we don't like newbs on our teams, but even more importantly that we don't like newbs who don't realize they're newbs on our teams. It would do you some good to read this guide.

Great guide, by the way, actually read all of it ;)
