Hey there. Welcome to the game and soon I hope, the community!

Question, are you in the discord? If you haven't got specific strategic questions you need answering but rather need to find people around your skill level, regular buddies to team up with or bash heads against, I think the discord is a great resource to do that.

If you're in there ping me. I'll DM you when I get the chance.

I am in both the Community and Official Discord next weekend I'll see if I can ping you. I did ask for some early game tips in the community general discussion got two replies of advice one was good other not so good. Honestly need more strategy advice and some help with micromanagement

Hej there, welcome to the game!

For me this game takes a lot of time to get to know because there are so many commanders with different abilities and whatnots. I would encourage you to stay patient with yourself, play a lot and watch indrid casts (1v1 to learn, anything else for fun) as well as BBbOs and Topids (all on youtube).

Have fun and see you ingame!

thanks for the advice I do watch Indrid and Torpid so I got a general Idea of what to do just when it comes to learning which points to get first when to support others and holding is so far my biggest problems currently. I'm doing my best to be patient since I know the learning curve is really rough only problem with this is dealing with people who in game chat start screaming what are you doing and not actually giving any kind of helpful criticism and when I deal with too many of these kinds of people its disheartening

Sounds like a very good basis to learn the game. The experience you describe is why I avoid playing 3v3s with random people. The game mode supports blaming others for own mistakes and not being kind and helpful towards newer players. As said, I would recommend 1v1s even though in this game mode, you are all on your own... :twisted:

find someone you can play 1v1s with and just play while focusing on learning to pay attention to things like unit management, minimap and eco
dont bother with watching casts if you want to get better, the only people that say that it helps are usually incredibly bad
