    Subject: FF Petard Smothering
    This is a extremely effective strategy on smashing your opponents base and forward bases.

    This strategy works best with Portuguese because Portuguese can FF so fast.
    The main cards is 1,000 wood and the Mameluke card. The main focus of this strategy is to get your Artillery Foundry built and build 10 petards then attack his army with your group of soldiers as you move your petards around his flank take three petards on their barracks and 4 on their town-center then with the remaining 3 take out there houses or extra barracks, if he has another town-center being built don't destroy the barracks just take out both town-centers. This will completely take your opponent by surprise as he is completely focused on microing his army correctly, when suddenly he looks back to buy more villagers and he has no town-center! The next step you will want to do is fall back on your town-centers or towers with your infantry and use your Mameluke s to go and kill off the rest of his villagers while you age to IV. Your opponent will be helpless without a town-center to continue booming and with Mameluke s hunting his villagers he will be forced to resign with no chance of winning. Using a strategy that is as effective as this will allow you to be any rank with ease, its a bit of a OP strategy

    Why wouldn't people make petards they are cost effective in rush(take out houses in 1 shot) and great bait. Besides, if you dont see any artillery(organ gun / falconet) you can expect petards. Also, why would someone want 1000 wood(age3) as ports??? it only seems natural for artillery (petards usually) or a second base, as they dont need wood for towncenter.

    lol i dont think you know what cost effective is. Destroying a house w that costs 100 wood with a unit that dies instantly and costs 100 wood and 50 food is not cost effective obviously. You're just setting yourself behind.

    you have a point but it does save you time attacking buildings and it is excellent bait(people freak out vs petards in my experience and usually send half their army to kill) i admit defeat to you pros. Cool

    Petards work for me because i tend to overgather wood a LOT usually when i win games i have ~6000 wood and no idea how i got that much

    Yes Stefan leave it to the pros of supremacy. . . @Skhsri if they know you are going to do petards then you will need to distract him,,,send 10 of villagers to a herd near him he will see the herd dieing and send his army over to kill that is when you send your petards in and army and starting killing his 20 villagers

    LOLOLOLOLOL I did a massive obnoxious laugh out loud when I read this. Its almost common sense that petards are among the most uncosteffective unit in the game. There are no pros that post on this forum. You need a noob to tell you that your strats are noobier than strategicjoels.
