I finally did some playing online over the weekend and things did not go very well. I thought I had a pretty good grasp on the game but after 5 straight losses, major losses, I realized that I must be doing something wrong. The one thing that I simply cannot figure is how people can build up so damn fast. I mean by the time I can get to a place where I am even remotely thinking of moving on their base they are all over me with 2 to 3 times the units that I have. So I am just curious, is there a particular strategy for building really fast that I have just not discovered yet???
I usually take 2 resource dumps that are close to me right of the bat. Through up Camouflage to hide my base and build barracks and anti-tank facility to get my defense out there. Then I start in on researching on tanks, and planes, as well as arty for a nice mixed, well balanced force. But I never make it that far. Please help me. What am I doing wrong???
