spaming and rushing tactics
Just have one question,,, everytime I played with some one and I spam helis and attack their base I get some kind of nasty message from that person. why? I thought the point of the game was to win right? people get upset when I rush them? can some one please explain.

stop trolling spam rushing is a tool thing to do in any rts game and normally what noobs do

Jep and its a nooby-tactic because you need no skills for that. Spaming Helis and scouting for the fist enemy CV is not that difficult but it smashs fun and the possibility that you loose all your helis in the first 5min of the game is very high.

Well, I guess spamming and rushing is a valid tactic - though not an enjoyable one (at least not for your enemy). Indeed, it's often used by noobs as it's easier to win with a rush/spam than to defend a rush/spam (especially if you're quite new to the game). However, this tactic is not exclusively used by noobs (though there's a big difference between a skilled rush/spam and a noob one).

i believe spamming is really annoying

Generally speaking, it is a game, winning is pointless if both sides aren't having fun.

On the recieving end of plenty rushes.....very difficult to cope with a skilled exponent of the "art". I tried it myself twice and just can't seem to manage a rush effectively. What I've found is that accusations of spamming are thrown around randomly though!! Particularly by higher ranked players that i've beaten or in the throes of beating. Given there is a limited deck choice and number over the course of a game multiple units will be selected. One rather "forlorn" opponent got very excited about spamming ironiclly as 2 T62's, 2 BTRs, a KoLOS and two BMP's sneaked in to his rear and destroyed 4 of his 5 MRLS and 3 of his 6 AUX to win! Rushes though just aren't in the spirit

Its still a tactic that can be employed, although some may call it a noob tactic. It ruins the fun most times but sometimes its fun to piss people off. I think everyone has tried spamming and rushing in some form or fashion out of anger but if your doing it on a constant basis then that is why your getting all of these nasty messages. Also as someone pointed out, the point of a game is to have fun. Who wants to win a game if your not having fun doing it. Just my two cents.

you all made valid points. A more balanced approached would be better for the sake of the game and what it was meant to be. I just go by how real wars have been conducted such as the iraq war where the US just sent massive formations of tanks and helis to destroy Saddam and get to baghdad. Now I know this game is not real but it is fun from time to time to see people get caught off guard and just totally pull a desert storm on them. Thanks for your comments

Desert Storm style is one thing (overwhelming force in a planned and well executed manner)....but 50 T-34's rumbling head on up Hells Highway until their fuel runs out just can't be regarded as the same breath or indeed as fun. That said, nothing more satisfying than sniping the lonley CV sat in the rear as the aimless rush runs out of steam.

vic4a is somewhat right in what has become the classic use of mobility in war! I suspect many of the French generals felt the same way in 1940 as the Panzers drove around their defences and on to Paris, and wanted to cry, "Foul!", "That's no fun!"...

stop playing 1 v 1

You know what you are, your the 3rd derivative of a position equation. (10 points if you know what that is) Go calculus!!!!!!!!
(also it is the derivative of an acceleration equation)

@peter- That was my thinking as well. In my opinion all goes in war, people shouldn't get upset just challenge me again and see what tactic I use next time and try to beat what ever tactic I use. You see germany eventually lost WW2 even when they tried that same tactic in the battle of the bulge , the allies were able to counter attack and the blitzkrieg was pushed back. @ironhide- I like your sense of humor!!!! LOL nice....
