I've seen a few similar threads around but decided to start a new one where you can post games and analyse some creative and unique strategies from top players. I found this game http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=4737408 a bit interesting as zibik puts his 5,6 in west us and canada (inefficient bonuses) which leads to him winning the game. If you have any fun games to show feel free to post them here.

Turn 12 gives away an easy win for brisk btw, so not sure if zibik's decision was that good.
Maybe an easy win is an exaggeration, but i'd definitely prefer brisk's position if he just pushes SA full.

If it was no fog then turn 12 is an obvious blunder. One of the benefits of picking east US is that it was unpredictable and gave brisk the option of making a mistake.

I posted most of the interesting ladder games with analysis a while ago. My RT games are always shit.

Pig, are you planning on making any more threads covering specific players games? if so, i recommend looking at zibiks, so interesting material.

That is maybe the first game I've seen against a great player where East US was picked to win the game for someone other than as a counter.

If my subconscious wanted to create an alter ego to trick even paranoid me, it would act exactly like MysteryMan. This is just brilliant.

That one I was actually quite fond of for 2 reasons. First, my picks seem very standard and it looks like I got a bad position just getting picks 3/5 out of risky picks, however I intended to do that, since I knew if I get 3 and 5, he has most likely scan+russia, which means fast early income and his agression near australia is justified. Not moving in antarctica begs for a blockade, which I wanted since the counter in Indonesia is almost impossible to predict. Overall the strategy was to force him to waste troops around aus as much as possible and force a blockade. The 2nd reason is how the game went, because after a forced win on turn 5, I forgot to add attack on aus last order on turn 6, after that I had to get lucky to still win.

I don't recall many recent creative 1v1 games, since I only rarely played gnuff in strat 1v1 and some rt ladder games. Unfortunately, rarely creative is efficient.

Love how sze posted that game just so people can see that he won, like he had done when he "tutored" players who want to improve.

Not using alts so there's transparency in games - check
Not posting games untill someone requests - check
Being called an attention whore - check

Welcome to Warlight Forums :)

p.s. I don't think that was Gui, he knows I don't find winning one game against Gnuff brag worthy.

Can some top players scour their games and show me one where East Russia is used as a pick and decides the win?

1v1 and 2v2 ME would be interesting.

I think there was a 2on2 game I played with someone against gnuffles where he used East Russia successfully.

i dont have a good enough memory to hope to ever find a game again unless it was ladder. Im sure people win with east russia because it counters central russia, someone prolly uses it as a counter and then ends up completing it turn 5ish.

1v1/2v2 ladders: Play 5 games at a time to start, so you get as many weak opponents as possible. Stall games and get as many wins as possible to reach first. Hold first for a while, so everyone can see how great you are at stalling. Quit ladder and let yourself get booted in games you are stalling once you are satisfied with the public's impression of you.

RT ladder: Don't join first. Watch who is waiting to play. Join RT ladder if your opponent's rating is high enough for you to maximize your rating gain (if you win) and minimize your rating loss (if you lose). Avoid players you think will beat you. 20 players are worth avoiding. Join to play players you think you can beat. Once you reach first, only play once every three days, to avoid losing and to cling to first for as long as possible, in order to appear still greater. Inflated stats plus longevity are super impressive.

Seasonal ladder: Join early. Win as many early games as you can. Stall early losses so your early match-ups are better. Once you think your opponents will be better, surrender in early losses. Keep winning. If you don't win enough, quit with account #1 and focus more on accounts #2 or #3.

If you have any questions about these strategies, invite Gnuffone to a game. He is a pro at gaming the ladders.

I dont remember, if you find it, post it.
@piggy: looking through the games finding such a game is rather simple, just look at the minimap, 95% of the time east russia will be completely empty, just look at the games where eastrussia is no white spot.
