What exactly is the definition of rush? I always thought it was t1/t2 trooper/mountie raid. Some people say anytime after all players agree. Well, I just got done playing an RM. It was no rush, which i never do anyways. Anyways, 40 minutes (according to the clock) have passed and I've been in T4 for a while. I do a pummel drop. What else is new? The guy goes crazy saying I rushed. Him and his partner (it was 2 v 2) continue to play. When they lose to me and my ally they go insane. I was not aware that attacking at T4 was a rush. Anyhoot, what is the true definition of a "rush"?

Early game attack.

40 min isn't early game. T4 isn't early game. The guy's an idiot. You did not rush him at all.

Sounds like sore losers to me. I agree w/your def. of a rush, unless I'm wrong too (it has happened once already today). I mean if a pansy is going to cry every time you drop a few units off at her doorstep then tell her to play the "Build a monument" scenario so she won't get her nails dirty then. Why play a game with a "no rush" rule? Why stop there, why not play a game with a no troops until I build my army first rule? Ask her that why don't ya? I hate whiners. Next time rush that whiner with a barrage of air cruisers up his ying yang and ask 'em how he likes them apples.

Congrats on the win, Nitro. But as Luke's Dad and Nairb have already said, a pummel drop in T4 is not a rush, no matter how you look at it.

Even if it was a rush, what was the guy complaining about?
"Hey u cant rush me u might win da game dat way!!!!!1!!!!11!!!one!"

hahaha. Well, the main purpose of my ventures on zone today was revenge. My freinds finally beat me yesterday. It was a 1 v 3, yes, it took three of them to bring me down over the course of 40 minutes after the initial attack.

A rush is when pbugy wipes me out in less than 10 minutes :xp:

A 1v3 eh? I actually did that. It was me vs some friends (that were worse than me) in #echonet. I stomped 2 of them, and was moving onto my third when the game crashed...

Nitro the only possible way that could even remotley even be conceviable seen as a rush was if it was on fast and the 40 minutes on the clock was 15-20 minutes in reality. and even then that's pushing it to a whole new level of extreme.

If it's not in the first 20 minutes of game time, then you can't call it a rush. And if it's a T2 trooper rush, it wouldn't even be much of a rush if it took 20 minutes.

That's why i said

possible way that could even remotley even be conceviable

In very exagerated language strechting out the point as far as i could making it very long and almost annoyingly obviuosly streched to try and make an important point.

I guess my pummels are just too deadly...:p

No just annoying to be on the receiving end of them since when you play as the emp you don't have the best heavy weapons but you do have good ones. now Confederacy of Wookie Pummels now they're deadly.

I'd say before 15mins, 20 mins most would be t3.

08-16-2004, 01:55 PM
True, for 15 to 20 I meant T3 strike rush, obviously.
