    Default Who is the best player on Age 1?

    I'm curious to know peoples opinions of who you think is the best player and what makes them so good.

    Best in what way? Best skill knowledge and understanding? Best at botting and running multiple account? Best and talking sh!t?
    skill knowledge understanding wise i am by far the best in age 1. botting i'm not sure there are lots of people that bot. sh!t talkers there are a few contenders there
    noobs such as yoyo and his entire crew all do well talking complete rubbish. hobbit is another sh!t talker the list goes on really

    You realise of course that you're just talking about within the closed sphere of your own server. Unless you've played every server, you're merely posturing.

    You cant have the most knowledge in this game. I am fairly certain several people, myself included know exactly how mechanics work 100%. You can't know 101% how they work. So to say you are THE best is illogical.

    How you apply that knowledge is what sets you apart from other players that also know exactly how mechanics work. The fact that you claim to be the best is laughable, Just out of active forum members I would bet Cush/MechHead/Blackhands are all better than you. Judging by the way you hype yourself up, I will go out on a limb and say spooner is also better than you .

    maybe you should ask cush about me. idk if you noticed but cush didnt criticise what i said on blackhands thread. he did how ever reply to ssfgrgawer. that being said how could blackhands possibly be better then me, when he said things like i thought i would try this out to see how it went..... i knew straight away how it was going to go and pointed a few things out. im not exactly sure how you come to your conclusions. mechhead is a better then average nothing special big mouth. spooner is spooner. out of those 4 players cush is by far the best and yes im going to say i understand the game better then him and apply my knowledge in a far more ruthless and brutal manner.

    If you mention spooner in this convo anythjng you say for the rest of it is irrelevant. At this point best age 1 player doesn't matter. The bot is the best player matching up 2-300 waves at a time. Also so many people have quit that a best of would be picking from maybe 100 actual players

    This is pretty much the case. You cant determine which player knows "The most" anymore. There are quite a large number of people who do understand the battle mechanics. Both age 1 and Age 2 players and by this probably age 3 as well. Evony is limited in how far you can take it, once you realize how everything fits together, there isn't much further you can go.

    Jeff's puzzles were a massive help when i was learning mechanics. He was a brilliant player, and those puzzles were a lot of fun. That one was a particular stumper. They mostly involved tweaking waves to change the order combat happened in. Required quite a lot of calcing for me in those days.


    I think at this point in the game, there is no "Best" just best on the day. even the best player can make mistakes. even the worst player can get lucky. You cant judge a player based on their largest kill, or "Best" hit, Because its purely luck as to what a defender will do. my sig has the current reining "phract kill" That Ive yet to see beaten, and that was VS an online defender. I was lucky he didn't change defense enough to effect my set, so i got to wipe his war city in 4 hits.

    That was probably the last time in recent months i actually had to plan my waves and tweak them for the utmost effect. It only worked because defender didn't realize my end game scenario that i was counting on that. It only worked because he never saw it coming. Does this make me a better player then cush? No. Does it make me a better player then anyone else? No. On the day, i got lucky. simple as that.

    The only skill involved was working out it "Could" be done in the first place. Then its all up to luck.

    The forums has (or had) a very large number of skilled players. do most of them tweak every hit they do in game to attack any given player? no. For the most part its too time consuming to fiddle fart around with a waves structure to break down what is likely an alt, which might move troops around and mess you up anyway? Its really not worth the effort. 3 waves will work just as well as two. However Jeff's puzzles are based on an in game situation, and as such, could be "possible" to occur. Chances of anyone taking the time to go "Well i might be able to wipe this in two waves if i change this...." is pretty slim. There is being troop conscious and then there is overdoing it.

    Most people will just send 3 derp waves over 2 well planned waves. for a while i tried attacking like that, planning every inch of my waves. I was a small war city in a sea of big fish, and as such i did a lot of damage, Then people started building 50m archers. Planning then means nothing unless you can catch them with trebs up or something. (and Vagabond has shown recently how bad of an idea that is for certain reds of mine)

    Now days the player with the access to the most war citys is the "Best" IF they have access to 30 war citys with a bill burn each and a solid knowledge of mechanics, They will beat you every time. While your trying to rebuild, they can just bring in a 3rd or a 4th or a 5th war city and keep you beat down.

    Sorry bout the long ass post!

    You shouldn't need to tweak every wave. Glance at a scout report you should have a fair idea what should be a good wave to send. I mean good not average and hope it does something. Most of what you just said is quite true but when it needs more then 3 waves to kill something you can be like well i will just send twice as many waves to get the job done. People should be wanting to learn why they should tweak things anyway.

    http://www.evonyurl.com/j6na51 <---- one of blackhands ram hits

    take this hit for example other then the layers being over layered by 499 and the hero there is something he should have done to ensure maximum efficiency regardless of which wave was landing but can you tell what it is, and why it would work???
