When i started i was in the same boat but my friend i was playing some the most hardest ai difficulties and learnt to colonize fast with turrets through guides and experience. Imagine having played only 1 multiplayer game and trying to convince the host you can play. For me it worked out because i was known in forums and use to discuss various strategy topics. Implementing those strategies is a whole other deal esp in a 5s game. So yeah.. i kind of lagged behind everyone but over time i learnt to become really strong in eco spot. Tactical battles can also improve a lot and the battle for neutrals and scouting my opponents builds is where it all ends these days so I'm getting there. Overall, its joy and rainbows when you exit the game or when you check your status and it says no.1 eco as Advent. Thats an achievement.
If you love the games lore and know how to use abilities of caps and ships then you kinda fall into that area of comfort. At that point then given some tips here and there means you will grow to be a strong player..
Starboy, we played last game and it showed you have played a lot previously whether it was vs ai or not. You will become very good over time.
In the last game we played: Remember when Mathematica joined you at the Asteroid to attack me and limp. THEN my comp crashed but was going to loose the starbase anyway. In that game i noticed one thing...Limp can't eco and had no knowledge like me and UNUM.. UNUM tactical player but in that game i was actually 1 eco before i crashed. I also noticed LIMB had good tactical skill to some extent and was destroying your starbases with a separate fleet of carriers.
I also noticed you almost lost your level 6 Akkan at the first gravity well even though you had reached 150 antimatter and could have activated the ultimate. It was only like 10 seconds later did you activate it to save you there but i followed anyway to finish you off when the ability expires.
Given that game then I'm in the position to say don't kick star boy even though the name annoys me .
Iam convinced however that maybe you are keeping the fact you had a previous steam account that you are not telling us. Either way.. GG, GL , HF..
P.S please don't rage quit when your titan dies.
