I am wondering how you guys feel about the AAR so far, do you want more or less coverage of particular things, and most importantly are you enjoying the AAR and is there ways to improve it?

I spoken to others a little bit and one said something about trimming down the number of screenshots per post. Are you guys getting similar feelings, or something different in mind?  etc.

It's not so much less screenies as making them as small and focused as possible to keep load time down.  At the same time, occasional shots of the powergraph, world map and that kind of detail are good, because the reader needs some sense of the big picture, too, but some elementary cropping would streamline the whole business.

Right, I can do that. I often take screenshots where the graphs are included mind, but I can do exact focus on them.

I can also crop so its zoomed in right on the action.

I hear you Jarlwolf. AARs are a lot of work.

Particularly ones that are immersive and have custom graphics like what you are doing.

Update coming soon today: Though for the next week or so I will not be in my home. I will be elsewhere on my own business.

Laptops for the win. My stuff travels everywhere with me.

But your style AAR takes a bit more planning than the way I do things.

My computer is a laptop. Its just where I am going and what I am doing it is unwise to take it with me, nor will I have time to do it while I am gone.

Said post has come. Feast your eyes on it.


I will post update in about 6 or so days: I am heading out of my home to attend to some personal matters. I will be back in 6 days roughly.

This is really heating up! Sepsu leading in tech with 4/2 while you're on 1/1, and has the most territory so you're probably just running up against an edge base.. this is going to be a tough battle. Unless you get some good offensive tech soon, it may make sense to prepare to hold the chokepoint with a base directly below the unpopped colony pod and make a fighting retreat destroying roads and picking off anything unarmored.

I can win if I outnumber him and I have the advantage of the first strike: My troops are far superior in training and experience. Most of my units I crank out are Commando status off the bat and they go elite after a single battle. I should be able to pop an offencive technology here soon.

And if worst comes to worst and he starts sending his hordes I'll bog him down with guerrilla strikes. Hit him where it hurts and use mobility to my advantage.

Yes, you can definitely still win, and even push him back if you get some offensive tech soon and continue isolating/siegeing that base. It should work if you get Impact or at least Lazers thanks to the large morale advantage, but you need one of those pretty urgently.

Are you using that handy Monolith to upgrade each unit? Also, I noticed you had a rover on hold position near their base, maybe just destroy the farm and run? You can rebuild and plant some forests after you take the base, for now the priority may be stopping them building up.
