Welcome to the new and improved "Battle Archives" forum.
To make it easier for people to see what it is they are downloading, please adhere to these naming conventions:
Should contain the most basic info in the form of tags, the rest of the title is up to you.
- Number of players, e.g. [1v1], [2v2v2], [FFA]
- Races, e.g. [ORK] vs [ELDAR]
- Version, e.g. [1.2]
If it's a 1v1, you can show who won in the thread title by using > and < signs:
[ORK>ELDAR] means the Eldar player just got his ass kicked, whereas [ORK<ELDAR] indicates that someone was just bombed into oblivion by a bunch of fire prisms.
- Either attach your replay to the first post, or post a link to an off-site hosting location where one can find the replay.
- Your first post should at least contain a single-sentence summary of the game which tells us who won the match. You are free to include a full-blown battle report if you wish.
- If you have a specific question, put it in the first post as well - such as "Where did I go wrong?" or "How could I have countered the rush at the beginning?".
On a final note: This forum is not to be used to humiliate or rally against other players. Posting replays with the sole intention of getting back at someone will earn you a deleted thread at the very least, and you will also move up a few places on my shitlist.
As always, some form of coherent grammar is required, posts along the lines of "OMG y00 totally pwned him liek that wtflolz!!!!!111" will get nuked.
Below is a sample thread to illustrate this:
Title: [1v1] [SM>CHAOS][1.2]Dreadnought deep strike helped me win!
This was a 1v1 game on Biffy's Peril. I managed to stop the first rush with my FC and a squad of marines, then things went quiet for a bit while both players were teching. A few minor skirmishes around LPs later I assaulted the base with a bunch of ASMs and then used deepstriking to drop in three dreadnoughts, which demolished the base.
What can I do to defend against the early rush though? It was pure luck that I survived this one, as you can see.
