I play everyday but still come across the guys who still think it's fun to rush people. I seriously don't understand the logic in it at this stage of the games life? I mean it's not like anyone cares about leader boards anymore. I thought with it now being b/c. The only people playing it would be people who enjoy the game but no. 5 mins in here comes the prophet, or a bunch of warthogs. It's ruined the game IMO. Really gets go me because i love the game
If you play Humans you can almost always expect a Rush or an early attack if you aren't defending well. What people don't get is this isn't a game of build up and then go out and destroy. It is a game of beat your opponent where you can, you have to dually be able to build up and protect yourself at the same time. If I start a game and see my opponent building 2 reactors in the first 3 mins and he has no troops, and maybe one turret, I will attack him definitely. If he has built up a force but I believe I can take some of his important stuff without taking heavy losses I will also attack him in this case, but if he has a well defended base and a force that rivals mine, I will bide my time and try to beat him at map objectives, at which point one of us will take the lead. That is how the game is made fun. Humans(or Covenant) who try to build up for the steamroll and think that their base should be left alone till they are ready should maybe play deathmatch instead.
I used to make that mistake too though.
