Nice forum you have here, maybe I should spoil it with a guide written exactly (lol, really) 1 year ago.

Since the document focused mainly on meta gaming and deeper strategy concepts, it should still be viable no matter how often rantology tweaks your beloved game :)
(although the section 2.3 might contain some outdated tech routes :P)

I remember this one. That one is excellent at one condition: you must like reading.

Thanks blind! :)

ppl in the internet are supposed to ignore every comment after max. 100 consumed characters or 2 boring memes....

Pelagir is strange... (i will keep you by that name, it has a nicer ring in my head to it lol)

Read over it really quickly, It's a pretty good read and most of it still applies as you said. will probably read it more next week when I have more time.

Very thorough and very nice guide to put a standart to any players knowledge. Only thing I feel is lacking for this marine guide, is sound scouting, and using your ears, rather than your sight.

also - BLIND!!! =D

Well it's a strategy guide, not a tactical guide. For that ask herakles or shu, they love to teach players in that regard ;)

In fact, i remember herakles did put up smth on the UWE forums in the old days...but cba to search for it :D

*edit: on a quick check, the sound scouting is mentioned in 2.2.1.1 :P

Then i suck at searching and google, and have a short term memory - my bad ^^

IMO sound scouting is an important part of openings, which you did touch :)
