PrivateJ0hn vs MrGameTheory (Video available)
Ladies & gentlemen, i believe this is the moment you all been waiting for....without further adieu, i present you the game of the century :
That's right, master of the "legendary" unbeatable imbalance Rome Megacity.
We play 2 game, both rank match. As it stands, the score is 1:1.
I lost in this game because i wasn't using my original Chinese strategy, instead i use the one against Rusher/Arab, thanks to mxzx3 i have "rusher"phobia in every game nowadays. Anyhow...it cost me a lost by researching Masonry & Ceremonial Burial which was unnecessary & disadvantage for tech players because MGT is not rushing nor culture flipping, his culture is equally bad as mine. He won by 800AD. However losing is not always bad, this give me a good grasp at his strategy because the first game I kept talking to the AI & found out his cities, even the Palace are always empty! So i know what to do next round.
*I didn't edit a video for the first game because i assume nobody want to see him win because he already has the fame of "unbeatable", right? Anyway if anyone has any doubt on the authenticity of this, i still have the full game record both at the size of 300MB each.
Instead of making the same mistake, why not i exploit the same thing? I just use my original strategy which is very vulnerable to rusher & culture flipping BUT tech advance is incredibly fast even without a megacity.Since there are no rusher in the game, all is good.
The game end at about 1100AD as he quits,and I have an average population of 10 in each cities, 100% lead in tech.
Here's the video :
I've edited it with my commentary, brief description on my tech research & highlighting only the interesting part. It's 10 minutes long as it will explain everything. (I hope)
Ending comment : This is my honest opinion, after playing MGT i really think he lack the real world experience with Human player. He is playing the game as if he is facing the AI in singleplayer. I really doubt he stand a chance against aggressive player namely mxzx3 etc. Even for a non-rusher, you can keep up with him or even exceed him in tech. Just remember to harass him at some point, otherwise his Rome megacity will indeed be "unbeatable".
Hope this thread can turn into a battleground among the top players too where they can meet-up for some fun time. I love challenge like this and I will not act immature when losing.
