Differing Build Times????

Post by the-zoidberger »

I recently played a 1 vs. 1 and was beaten pretty badly. I went back to watch the replay because it seemed odd that the opposing play could build so quickly.... See below pictures that I snapped from my iPhone.

Pay close attention to the Service Depot and Ore Truck build times.
We each had 1 MCV and 1 War Factory. What am I missing here?

I have the replay if anybody wants to watch it...

Can you please send me the replay?
It might just be that you ran out of cash during production so your production timer got stalled.

Also, what map was this played on?
The client usually gives you a warning if you are playing on a map with custom rules,
which is afaik the only way to "cheat" by implementing different build times etc.

Always include the replay and map in posts like this. Impossible to say anything based on a few pictures.

Sure you didn't just run out of cash whilst you were building these?
Seems like the most likely situation that this could happen.

It could be as simple as taking an extra second to place buildings, start producing or even to deploy.

Or even cancelling the build order in favor of another strat for that matter.

actually it looks like it is the money as murto said, id have to see the replay but based on the evidence I see, you made an extra pillbox which might have contributed to him catching up

I am pretty sure this is not true. It is possible to cheat, people have done so in the past. Fortunately it is pretty obvious, specially if you have replays available.

Cash flow was the issue. Case closed.

This must be the replay as it's the only game I have vs you as Gargamel, I was using a VPN for that smurf BTW, and you moved your MCV further at the start

People will occasionally accuse others of hacking the game. Normally they are just beginner players.

I have seen one player cheat against me with the mass infantry mad tank thing. No idea how it was done. Yes I know it's something to do with the driver jumping out.

Oh yeah and someone was trolling a while back with custom maps.
