SMURF!

I have the following advice for anyone playing LSN...

DON'T play 6 games at once and try to have a busy lifestyle at the same time. It doesn't work.

Funkodrom
24-04-2002, 08:29:49

Plus I thought Shiny said that AI's had no place in the factory and what do I see coming round the corner?

Funkodrom

Shining1

Scanners good:).

Funkodrom
25-04-2002, 09:16:29
I've gone off scanners now. They are useful but I've ended up having too many games where I've been outnumbered because my scanners can't fight. I'm not sure you can afford the points hit of more than one.

Forgot to play that turn last night. Sorry.

Shining1
25-04-2002, 10:51:45
Loser, you suck.

Funkodrom
25-04-2002, 11:08:17
I want to see what happens as well. I'll try and play it tonight, if not it won't be until Sunday evening I'm afraid.

Guy
25-04-2002, 12:42:44
Number of useful scanners seems to depend on the map. On factory, for instance, two seems to work great with the balance being exterminators or hunters. On forest or crossroads, I would never have more than one, if that even.

The problem with the Mechs is that they don't allow you a whole lot of flexibility during the game. With the Marines, you can set up teams that can split up or regroup as needed as things change. With Mechs, you're pretty much locked into a tactic once you've picked your units. They're too expensive to build teams with, you've got to go with either overwhelming force or overwhelming numbers and hope that your opponent is overwhelmed.

My opinion, anyway.

Funkodrom
25-04-2002, 13:04:42
Very true, that's the main reason I like the Marines. I like the maneuverability and flexibility. What I ought to do is run like hell from Shiny's AI and finish off the exes.

The Shaker 2

Well i'll be back tomorrow and ready to sign up, so you'd all better be prepared to kiss your shiny human butts goodbye.

Funkodrom

I lost that game I was playing against you 'cause it timed out. Which sucks even though I was losing. :)

The Shaker
29-04-2002, 16:08:54
I have never lost as mechs (as pb will testify from yesterday )
I have never won as humans :(

think it's about time to sign up proper

Funkodrom
29-04-2002, 16:10:32
I'd like to play humans against your mechs on bunker or crossroads.

Funkodrom
29-04-2002, 16:14:18
Incidently I'm currently getting beaten by Posterboy on Frontline, he's mechs I'm marines, I'm beating Guy on Frontline, I'm Mechs and he's humans. Both those games are far from being over yet though.

The Shaker
29-04-2002, 16:30:36
Now registered.....name Shakey

Guy
30-04-2002, 12:04:55
Revenge!

Defeated Shining on Crossroads in our rematch, 20-12. Not exactly comparable to his 20-0 pasting of me the first time around, but at least I'm getting better! Good game, Shining!

Time for some new challenges. Shaker? Want a game? Anyone else? I'm going to do some random league games, too, I think. Maybe they'll take my mind off how badly my game against Mike is going right now.

Funkodrom
30-04-2002, 12:21:35
I owe you one after the last game. :) My line is spread thinner than you might think though. :D

I'm beginning to hate the factory.

I've got 7 games going at the moment which is about what I can handle. If I play 2 turns from them a day I'm bored of LSN by the end. Ideally I think I'd like about 4 games running concurrently.

Guy
30-04-2002, 12:41:15
Four is a good number. More than that and it gets confusing and tedious.



I think I've got your positions and manpower pretty well figured out, that just doesn't seem to be keeping me from blowing my own guys away or running them smack into your fire.


I like factory from a tactical sense, but am very tired of playing it. Forest is my current favorite of the maps, lots of different approaches plus I just love lobbing grenades over the trees!

Funkodrom
30-04-2002, 13:01:37
Yeah. I think 4 is about right.

I didn't do much to hide where I was or what I was doing. You know where I am, it's just a question of what you can do about it. Those two missile tanks are pretty devastating. :D

I liked factory from a tactical sense but it's got a bit boring. Not enough combat. I like forest (start top right with marines) and Bunker (start inside the bunker with marines) the best at the moment. Crossroads is interesting with either side starting from either position. Frontline seems to be dominated by mechs from either start position but I'm determined to do well on it with marines so I'll keep trying that one.

We need new maps soon anyway. These are getting a bit tired.

Guy
30-04-2002, 13:12:24
They do need new maps. I'd like to play a game with the tutorial map, actually.

Yes, your missiles have been particularly, ah, effective.:mad:
I'm going to have a hard time making any sort of comeback. We'll see how my suicide team does this turn (they're the ones that blew themselves up on their advance).

Funkodrom
30-04-2002, 13:18:30
The destroy HQ scenario will be good too I think.

My troops protecting the missile tanks started off well dug in, not so much anymore now that the grenades started raining down. I'm going to become less effective now you are closer and your troops will become more effective.

Guy
30-04-2002, 13:26:47
I'd like to see a bunch of goal oriented scenarios (capture the flag, hold a position for X turns, etc.). I think that would help keep some of these old maps fresh.

I've busted up your walls, but my units all fell down to a few measly hit points in doing it. Gonna have to get creative if I'm going to push further.

Funkodrom
30-04-2002, 13:41:37
MEDIC!!!

That's my favourite thing about being marines, the fact that you can fall back and heal everyone ready for a fresh assault.

The Shaker
30-04-2002, 16:33:42
sent.

looks like i might actually lose a game.

Guy
30-04-2002, 17:29:40
Cool, thanks!

Don't worry, my tactics consist of runnng around at random and shooting my own guys. Shouldn't be too hard to counter.;)

Funkodrom
30-04-2002, 22:47:56
You'll beat me Shakey. Facing 2 missile tanks on Forest, I'm going to get totally fucked over. There isn't any cover!!!!! Oh well, I haven't lost a man yet, perhaps too early to be fatalistic.

Funkodrom
30-04-2002, 22:53:32
Sorry, that should be at least 2...

Shining1
01-05-2002, 02:41:39
Guy: Great game! But you definitely owe me a rematch now:). Missile tanks take a lot of getting used to...

Mike: I'm beginning to LOVE factory. Scanners give you such a massive advantage on that level, especially with Hunters.

Shakey: I'm up for a league match if you are...

Funkodrom
01-05-2002, 08:21:43
Shiny, as we have complete and opposite views of what makes for fun RTS games I'm not entirely surprised you like factory. I like the levels where you can play with either side.

My game against Shakey on Forest is going to teach me what it's like for Guy in Frontrow in our current game facing my two missile tanks. Painful I think.

7 games is WAY too many. Especially when I'm losing most of them.

Shining1
01-05-2002, 08:43:01
Marines can play factory very well, though - the next game we can reverse roles. I'm just not going to even mention my indoor marine tactics until this game is decided, though:).

Guy knows all about Missile Tanks - there's no problem there. Unfortunately, I failed to teach him much about how to counter missile tanks...:)

Funkodrom
01-05-2002, 08:56:20
I don't want to play the factory again quite yet. The round of games before this one I had 4/6 games going on in Factory. I'm a bit sick of it.

I haven't discovered a counter to properly supported and positioned missile tanks yet either. I've lost every game I've faced them with marines I think. My current tactic is to take out the HQ but it doesn't seem to be working very well... that's given my plan away to shakey. I'm determined to do it though. I'll just get a really crap record whilst I learn how to do it. Got 3 definite league losses coming in I think and one probable loss. All against mechs and that's not including Shakey's game, also against mechs.

I'm absolutely brilliant at fighting against marines though.

Shining1
01-05-2002, 09:08:01
Missile Tanks I'm happy to talk about:).

They have a lot of weaknesses...

Close range - it takes a missile tank a full 5 seconds to fire at something. Most other units take 2 seconds, Grenadiers take 2.5. So that means you can get a shot off and disappear back to your hiding place before the tank can fire back.

In the open, just fire, run 3 seconds perp to the tank, fire again, and run.

Ideally, you'll then get your opponent guessing where you are going to appear next and firing missiles at that point - hard work for them to get right.

Also you can run units up to close to them and the missile tank can't fire back without hitting itself and possibly even it's own supply depot.

Long range - Snipers, commanders, and A.Is don't miss NEARLY as often with a huge target like that. Makes dodging even easier, since missiles fly fairly slowly - you can get a couple of shots off before moving again.


And marines should love MTs - you can predict with relative ease where they are going to be. In that game against guy, I had way more trouble with his harrassing hunters than the MTs themselves.

Funkodrom
01-05-2002, 09:13:51
Yeah, that's the problem anyone who isn't a complete novice knows the weaknesses of the MT and takes steps to defend them. If you are facing 2 missile tanks and there's nowhere to hide (like on forest) you have 4 missiles coming at you every turn. Even with bad luck you will get a lot of troops shot to hell. And you can't sneak into grenade range because the scanners will spot you and should knock you out before you get close.

If you can take out their defensive screen then they are very vulnerable but that can be tricky to do when you are being pounded by missiles. OTOH it takes a lot to defend the missile tanks so if you kill it you've destroyed the fulcrum around which your opponent's strategy is based.

I know what to do, I just don't have the patience to sneak around taking potshots at MTs.

Funkodrom
01-05-2002, 09:22:15
It'd be nice if I could only play Marine forces all the time. It makes games a lot easier!

Shining1
01-05-2002, 09:53:51
That's part of the appeal of the game for me - sometimes you will plain lose just because you chose a force designed to take on one side and not the other - and sometimes you will lose because you didn't chose a well targeted force.

I still think that on maps like forest the Marines have a very good chance, especially if the tanks are hurling missiles everywhere. You should have a good number of snipers anyway, and the trick is you HAVE to be very patient - sooner or later the tanks will clear away all the trees and you will be able to spot them properly.

Mechs have NO counter for the sniper - missiles are the best they can do, and hunters for running them down at close range. But a few grunts and medics will counter the hunters quite well enough.

Funkodrom
01-05-2002, 11:11:57
Yeah, if I had some snipers it'd be really useful. :( Unfortunately I'm experimenting with using more grenadiers in defensive positions. When I set up the game I wasn't thinking about the fact that I'd be playing against mechs. For some reason that was a shock when I saw the first missiles it was like Oh shit he's got mechs, I have got totally the wrong selection of forces. I was just too tired and mind numbed when I set this one up and picked forces that I'd have used to defend against my own marine attack in the game I'm playing on forest against Vincent. Too many games going on, my subconcious is trying to fix problems with other games when I'm deploying new ones. So, anyway, like I said I'm totally fucked in that game already and we haven't even really started yet. Oh well. If he'd picked marines I'd have slaughtered him.

Funkodrom
01-05-2002, 11:33:56
I hate losing but I especially hate losing 'cause I make a stupid mistake before the game's even started and in a league game. :bash:

Oh well. I'll try and remember to think about it next time.

Funkodrom
01-05-2002, 11:48:20
ARGH!!! :bash: This is so infuriating that I can't quite get over it at the moment.

Funkodrom

Guy
01-05-2002, 13:05:06
Shining, I should have read this thread before replying in the other one. Yes, except for my crap starting placement, the hunter strategy worked very well in that game. Rematch is fine with me, even losing can be fun at this game. Do you want to do the same scenario again or try something different?

Mike, you give up too easy.;)
Though I must agree, facing a pair of tanks over open ground really, really sucks.

You bastard.

Funkodrom
01-05-2002, 13:10:35
If I hadn't just proved how deadly it was I wouldn't be so pessemistic and there's actually a lot of cover on frontline.

Guy
01-05-2002, 15:47:53
There is when you don't try to run straight up the road the tanks are sitting at the end of, anyway.

I have some ideas for taking them out on the forest map, but as that's the map I just started playing with Shaker, I think I'll keep my thoughts to myself a bit longer.;)

Funkodrom
01-05-2002, 15:54:35
I am going to run all my men directly towards the missiles until they are right in front of the missile tanks so if he fires he'll blow himself up.

Guy
01-05-2002, 16:12:11
Good plan.:hmm:

Funkodrom
01-05-2002, 16:21:01
It nearly worked against Fist in one game but I retardedly sacrificed a commander not a medic. D'oh.

The Shaker
01-05-2002, 16:32:51
Given the score is 0-0 you shouldn't be too pessimistic.
This is my first ever go on forest.
The one against guy is my second.
both are 0-0 and who knows how they'll go.

Funkodrom
01-05-2002, 16:42:31
I have played forest before so I know where your missile tanks are and I know that I can't get to them without getting shot to shit and I can't stay where I am without getting shot to shit.

Mostly I'm just pissed off with myself that I picked such a stupid set of units 'cause I know you are pretty good from our last game.

The Shaker
01-05-2002, 16:44:52
tell you what, if you just camp in the middle i promise i'll kill you quickly. :)

Funkodrom
01-05-2002, 16:47:39
Not a bad idea but it's a league game isn't it? If so I'll actually have to try and play it properly. Probably wait until I'm in a better mood.

Got to go. Meeting Noisy outside the Hexagon at 7 if you want to come over.

Funkodrom
02-05-2002, 08:51:26
Didn't play any turns last night, went out instead. Got to go and vote in local elections tonight and I'm probably not going to play any turns then either. Probably do my next turns on Friday night if I don't go and get pissed after work.

The Shaker

My weak humans aren't doing that badly.

:D

Guy
02-05-2002, 18:22:36
Score's 8-5, though. Hardly a definitive lead at the moment.

The Shaker
02-05-2002, 18:48:06
I could have been a successful General in WW1

Guy
02-05-2002, 20:45:04
French general, maybe.

15-6. Now I can claim a definitive lead.:p

Funkodrom
03-05-2002, 08:20:41
I think humans are a bit weaker than mechs but I like them a whole lot more.

Shining1
03-05-2002, 11:35:30
Humans are just different to Mechs. You can tell that a game has been well balanced when the community things that 'humans are too powerful, Mechs suck' one week and 'humans are a bit weaker' the next.

Funkodrom
03-05-2002, 11:54:38
You've got a point. I think the real issue is that I'm really bad at fighting mechs. It's my limitation not the game's.

The Shaker
03-05-2002, 15:58:41
And i'm handicapped using the humans because I hate mankind and want it to be wiped out.

Guy
03-05-2002, 16:28:19
Your wish is my command.

20-6, game over.

Cumber
06-05-2002, 16:06:10
I beat Shiny! :coolgrin:

And discovered an interesting thing to look out for with Scanners... I had 3 Exterminators set to halt on sighting walk straight past a Commander because he was in view of one of my Scanners at the start of the turn. Fortunately the Commander also walked straight past my Exterminators, so it didn't turn out too badly. :)

Shining1
06-05-2002, 16:16:27

Cumber Mechs look like a very challenging opponent, I will look forward to one day beating them. It won't be easy.

Soon our league positions will actually reflect how good we are. :D

Funkodrom
07-05-2002, 17:49:49
Still no turns for any games other than Guy's. Looks like I've lost 4 games. :(

Funkodrom
07-05-2002, 17:56:40
Actually I did get another one back. And resent the orders for Shakey's game. Shiny and Rach's games have vanished though I tried to resend orders for games 15068 and 15086 and they come back with game does not exist. :(

The Shaker
07-05-2002, 18:18:15
me and shiny's has fucked up too
and the one against rach must have, becasue i won.

only guys keep turnnig up now

Funkodrom
07-05-2002, 18:21:08
Other people having problems too. I'm posting details in the bug report forum of the LSN site.

The Shaker
07-05-2002, 18:23:59
Dagnamit you do that !!!

Guy
07-05-2002, 21:01:13
All my current games seem to be doing fine, with the exception of Rachel's who I had assumed just hadn't responded yet.

Though there are a few of these games that I wouldn't mind if they went missing...:cute:

Funkodrom
07-05-2002, 21:04:48
:D

The three games I lost were really interesting. Rachel had me outflanked marines vs. Marines on Frontline and I was retreating. The game against Shiny was 15-15. Sniper medic and Grenadier against sniper medic and HQ and Shakey's one I was up against 2 missile tanks on frontline with marines and winning!

Guy
08-05-2002, 12:08:29
Just got Rachel's. Once more unto the breech...


With the exception of the one with you, Mike, which I think I've screwed up pretty well, all my games are currently pretty even. Interesting one with Vincent right now, who is attempting a grunt rush on front line. I'm doing heavy damage, but also steadily losing ground. Shaker and I are currently occupied with charging past one another and blowing up the stuff behind us, most of the kills in that one thus far have been accidental.

Funkodrom
08-05-2002, 12:35:24
I luckily killed that sniper at just the right time. :D

The Shaker
08-05-2002, 16:13:05
Accidental?? ACCIDENTAL, i'll have you know I deliberatly had my grenade bounce right back off your head onto my group of proud troops cowering behind the grenadier.

:beer:

Guy
08-05-2002, 17:00:10
Punting grenades off their foreheads is a specialty of my troops. :p S'all right, though, my teams on the right of the map seem to be making up for it. It looks like a Tom and Jerry cartoon over there right now.

Mike, bastard.:)

I am not having a good week.:hmm:

Funkodrom
09-05-2002, 09:00:36
Sorry, no turns last night. I was busy drinking and watching football. :(

Probably no turns tonight either. Family commitments. :(

Maybe tomorrow evening though!!! :beer: :bounce: YAY!

09-05-2002, 12:14:16
I will be sending some challenges out tonight as I have no active games.

Funkodrom
09-05-2002, 12:15:08
I'll have one.

PosterBoy
09-05-2002, 12:17:27
You want two?

Funkodrom
09-05-2002, 12:20:25
I want to what?

PosterBoy
09-05-2002, 16:05:25
You want gay to what?

The Shaker
09-05-2002, 18:25:43
Gate what?


I'll have one as well, and Mike...Friday night we are out on the piss arn't we?


Guy my last turn send took 3 hours to go from sending to acknowledged by server.
grrrr, grrrr :shoot:

Funkodrom
09-05-2002, 22:18:51
All those lost games turned up! and I have to play them really pissed so I don't forget. D'oh!

Guy
10-05-2002, 12:15:05
So maybe I've still got a chance!:D

Shaker, my turns have been doing the same thing the past few days. I seem to be getting the orders confirmation and the next turn almost simultaneously, and usually several hours to a day after I've sent my orders. Ah well.

Funkodrom
10-05-2002, 12:27:02
I think they must have server problems then. :D

I didn't play your turn Guy, only Shakey, Lady and Shiny's.

Guy
10-05-2002, 20:12:01
Well, Shaker's got his revenge. Defeated me 20-13 on crossroads. Most of my points were scored in the last few turns after I'd given up and just stormed his position. Nicely played!

The Shaker
11-05-2002, 11:41:28
Well, I still think i could have lost.
Wiping out the squad on the left meant i had you outflanked pretty quickly, but i didn't really push it well enough .

But yeah I won :)

let me know when you want another rematch

Funkodrom
13-05-2002, 08:16:28
I played all my turns last night I think. I didn't respond to the new challenges from Rachel or Shakey as the old games turned up again.

Guy
13-05-2002, 15:54:27
Shaker,

Yeah, if you'd brought a team up the right after you had wiped out my teams over there, you would have mopped me up pretty quick. I made a lot of mistakes in how I pushed forward in that one, way too overconfident. I should have charged when I still had more men left.;)

I'll send you a challenge sometime today.

Funkodrom
13-05-2002, 16:21:20
I wonder if I can destroy every bit of destructible scenery in our game?

Guy
13-05-2002, 18:28:16
Depends on how much free time I give you.;)

Funkodrom
13-05-2002, 18:44:51
:D

I haven't seen any of your units for about 6 turns. I'm getting worried.

Guy
13-05-2002, 19:23:36
I only wish that fear was justified.;)

Funkodrom
13-05-2002, 20:38:36
I just fluked another kill of someone I didn't see.

Oh and Shakey's dead. I've got 18 points and he only has a scanner left. :D Looks like I shouldn't have given up in that one after all. (or he shouldn't have lost his exterminators so early)

Funkodrom
13-05-2002, 20:41:19
I'm winning all my games at the moment, other than the ones against Shiny of course. D'oh. Makes up for losing them all last round.

Shining1
14-05-2002, 02:50:52
Nope, you're winning that one too. Medics > Snipers, apparently...

Funkodrom
14-05-2002, 08:18:54
Yay! Medics rule.

Funkodrom
14-05-2002, 15:38:28
Oh and Cumber, I was going to send you a challenge but I didn't ahve your e-mail address to hand.

Guy
14-05-2002, 16:42:01
My luck has definitely turned. I just lost a sniper in the opening turn (the one where you can't move yet) with Shakey. Just lovely. Serves me right for putting him out in the open, I suppose.

Mike, yes your sniper seeking missiles have struck again. Another victim of the "if you can't see it, it doesn't exist" test phase. This game won't take much longer, I don't think.


I think I need to play more random games against newbies.

Funkodrom
14-05-2002, 16:43:10
If you can't see it then it shouldn't appear to help you plan your moves.

Guy
14-05-2002, 16:58:13
But I'm losing! All things should be visible to me for I fight the good fight! My soldiers are brave and pure of heart and so should not die before filthy lurking missiles that hide behind walls and sneak around out of sight! S'not fair!


On another note, it appears that medics are indeed better than snipers as one of mine ran straight through the same explosion that killed that sniper without damage. Who'da thunk it?

Funkodrom
15-05-2002, 08:21:29
That's it, forces of 20 medics are the way forward. :D

Guy
15-05-2002, 12:01:30
Now there's a concept game waiting to happen.:D

Meidc Wars!

Funkodrom
15-05-2002, 13:07:06
Want to try it in a friendly? No-one should ever die. :D

Guy
15-05-2002, 15:48:38
Absolutely! I've got one with Vincent right now that's all grenadiers. BOOM!

I don't think we've used this smilie enough yet.:D

Funkodrom
15-05-2002, 15:50:43
lol. I had a game against him with a lot of grenadiers.

I'll challenge you with that one when this one finishes. Need an open ish map I think? X roads? Frontline?

Funkodrom
15-05-2002, 15:52:04
:shoot: CD beast

Guy
15-05-2002, 16:18:17
Frontline would be good, crossroads is too uneven.

This could be operatic. Ride of the Medics! Kind of like revenge of the nerds only with guns.

Funkodrom
15-05-2002, 16:22:53
and medipacks.

Funkodrom
16-05-2002, 08:41:33
Server down? I didn't get any turns back when I played mine last night.

LadyRachel
16-05-2002, 08:55:05
Same here.

Funkodrom
16-05-2002, 09:07:23
Just checked the LSN forum there are a lot of "So what do you do when the LSN server is down" type threads.

The Shaker
16-05-2002, 18:58:52
Maybe the server is down?

Vincent Fandango
17-05-2002, 07:05:02
Just cooool it.
Its probably just a problem with the server

Funkodrom
17-05-2002, 09:34:25
I got turns this morning when I was recording Snappy's CD but didn't have time to play them before work.
