Click on the Troops Numbers, type in "2" "5" in quick succession. You now have 25 ready to go. You can also Tab to the troop numbers scrollable thinga-majig, so you don't have to scroll down in the browser.


Well put glorious leader.

Playing a speed game with trench actually allows me to play freestyle. It slows down the massive sweep that can occur if I'm a bit slow. More testing is required though to see if I can actually compete long term like that.

I have to agree with many of the posters.
Connection speed is the biggest hurdle to overcome in fs games.
I usually have a decent connection and if I start to see any noticeable lag whatsoever I will stop playing.
Just a few 10ths of a second can often be the difference between a win or loss.
Once you have figured out clickies and have a few games under your belt it's all about the speed combined with some decent strat.
Some may disagree, and I know my strat is not well liked by all, but I also find fs strat to be much more player dependent.
I play maps very differently based on my opponents and if rhp joins I just pack up and go home. ;)

All that being said I've only played a few fs games and I certainly don't like them very much. :lol:

11,500 fs played so far 11,233 were speed - my wife thinks I have a problem.....
Highest Score: 3266

Connection speed, getting mowed down by experience fs players, and then getting told in very unkind language things about by mental ability, my ancestry, or just sworn at. 24 hour freestyle, when you can only get to the computer once or twice a day is just a way to give points away.

I play CC for fun. Why do I need the crap? If I am going to play speed I will stick to private games with nice people.

I know the majority of people playing fs are nice normal people but their is a significant number who are not and I seem to run into them every other game or so. So I stopped playing except very, very, very occasionally.

Why Don't More People Take Up Freestyle?

This is a strategy game. That means I actually like to think about what I do. Compare it to chess. You need to consider your options, possible retaliations, balanced offense-defense, and on top of that bonuses and alliances.
Yes, there are speed-chess games, but they're much less interesting because you only use a small part of your capacity to think about your next move, and therefore in hindsight you will regret it. I dislike that feeling and I tend to avoid it, and therefore I avoid freestyle.

I'm sure you enjoy it though.

don't wanna be rude... but you're fkn clueless... you're analogy is right on but supports fs play, not your position.. in speed chess, do you no longer have any strat? or do you just employ that strat in a faster, more efficient manner.... maybe your brain just doesn't work.. who knows..
