A game of Economy?

When 2 talented players meet in a 1v1 dual in a game of empires, there are certain expectations that are almost guaranteed. None of those expectations were met in this match. Both players decided to build on their economy instead of fighting which ultimately dooms this match and bores spectators like myself.

The game starts off with both players doing the same exact build, as is to be expected since it is France vs France. There are a few skirmish battles, but nothing to bring you to the edge of your seat. Strojan goes one barrack, armory and then and Airport for fast Bomber runs. Kemoh goes double barracks with and armory. Strojans bomber runs were mostly unsuccessful as Kemoh spread his forces out so that minimal damage is done. Strojan does manage to destroy one barrack which forces Kemoh to build his own airport. After this there is no attacking until the final battle at the end. No micro, hardly any economy attacks, just build up.

The game ends with Strojan easily marching into Kemoh's base. Kemoh has massed flames with some fighters and Bombers, very few smokers. Strojan has a mixed force of units, including AA's, smokers, flames, bikes along with Bombers, which is the reason he won. Strojan also has far more military buildings, Kemoh only has 3 barracks and a airport.

Additional Comments:

If you enjoy large build up games with little to no attacking, and then a huge battle at the end, then this is the game for you. However if you enjoy many battles throughout with lots of micro and back and forth action, then you may want to pass this one up. A shame since these are two of the best players online IMO. :(

What happened? Kemoh played well at the beginning, and then, as often happens, it seems as though he let a noob step in and play for him!

Kemoh expanded massively, quickly and quietly. It took GENERAL a long time to match Kemoh's economic production in the beginning, but Kemoh stopped building. In fact, he nearly stopped playing. At the end, his stockpiles were nearing 10,000 of each resource! Meanwhile, GENERAL's economy surpassed Kemoh's, and GENERAL spent his resources. That was what made the difference in this match.

Overall, there was very little fighting until one very sloppy battle in the middle of the map. There was no raiding (Kemoh sent flamethrowers to raid, but he was 15 minutes late--if only he had done this earlier).

I'm glad to see another upload, since Empires has died down a lot lately, but massing resources instead of fighting is not very fun to watch.

Additional Comments:

Matches with economy can still have continuous action: that is what makes a good match. If you are practicing the boom, then watch this match. But if you want to see players who collect resources and fight at the same time, then download some of the latest matches RTE has posted.
