i just have to post this replay, because even though i am no expert at this game, my teammate was obviously.. very very much worse than me at this. http://www.wargamereplays.org/index.php ... lay&id=181
I still don't know how i won. i had a windfall when my teammate lagged out near the end (giving me access to a bunch of choppers i could spam at the enemy at a crucial moment). Well, i sort of know how i won. i hit their expensive units hard, tunguska hunting their choppers and using cheap infantry in forests extensively.
If your guide helps players like my teammate actually get somewhere, then thumbs up. I'm looking forward to reading the next part of your guide! The analogy about recon is very informative, i would imagine, to a first time player.
(btw definitely up for critique of how i reacted to the situation.)
