The best 3rd party maps are the vertical ones. In horizontal ones it is so easy to use off-screen aerial assault and when you place Gates it fells akward, cause Gates can only be placed horizontal. On the other hand, in vertical maps you cannot use off-screen air attacks and the Gate-placing is much more normal (It actually acts much like a wall).

However, I trully believe that building more than a single Gate is a cheat (no offense). In the whole Total Annihilation: Kingdoms game I believe there is just a single broken structure, and it is NOT the Aramonian Trebuchet. It is the Gate!!!!! Low cost, low constructing time, hard to destroy, it is built early in a game, it has such a far vision and it is invincible when opened. Instead of asking if Trebs are allowed, we should actually ask if Gates are allowed (no matter if they are open or close, closed Gates are broken too)! However, that doesn't mean I won't build Gates in a normal TAK online match, since that is the way we play the game. I just wanted to post my opinion about them.

I also (no offense) believe that all the following are cheats, but I will use them again online if the other players allow it.

* Creating Ghosts: It is fine if you start building a structure normally with your Monarch, but if you start the constructing progress and then you press S and walk away will leave the place filled with an invisible obstacle which must be destroyed. This is not fair, in my personal opinion.

* The offscreen is a cheat since you cannot target your opponent manually and you cannnot actually see your opponent units. It is fine if some flying units go offscreen by themselves (Zhonian Gryphons do that all the time) but it is not the same if you bring your Lokken, loaded on a Tarosian Ghost Ship, offscreen in order to destroy your opponent's builders and mana, for example.

* Making your units to stuck with those of your opponent in order not to be attacked by them is cheating if you do it on purpose (no offense again), and it is even a greater cheat if you do that on your opponent's monarch. The wave of a monarch is his/her last self-defence mechanism and it should be treated with respect. If your opponent's monarch uses the wave to eliminate the surrounding units and you right after attack the monarch with a group of fast-moving ground units, this is pure strategy. But slaining the emeny monarch because a single Swordsman of yours survives from the wave cause of a glitch, this is not fair at all.

* I don't consider making Trebs a cheat. I admit that I hate them, like anyone, but there are plenty of ways to deal with them (see my strategy posts). Of course I won't build them if the rules deny it.

Before I end, I would like to mention that I don't really care about cheats and bugs when I play against an opponent. He/she may use everything at his/her disposal, even cheats, to beat me. However, not everyone has my patience, especially new players. If a newbie comes here to play TAK (except me, of course) should be treated with respect, or he/she may leave.
That's all I have to say... for now...

way different then cheating.


Like a Star @ heaven shadow/ghost/etc. (+ cloaking shadow, + shadow from flying builder, dark priest and thirsha)

Like a Star @ heaven attack/build (ressurect/attack, clean/attack, repair/attack, etc.)

Like a Star @ heaven stop/move during animation (+ changing between passive,defensive,offensive)

Like a Star @ heaven curves/turns/swerves (from kirenna, lokken, etc. - even manually)

Like a Star @ heaven share your units when its gonna be killed (you can save a unit like this when an opponent mon is gonna wave ur berserkers, for example)


Care to share more on how to do these? I see all the time but do not know how to do.

What about the way Cavedog made those things intentionally ? shadow, build attack, curves, turns, it aks some skill to do it, well not really ^^ build/atack is simple but it's a moanrch after all the best unit in the whole ta:k ^^

Well there is some bugs too we know it and don't use it, sometimes.

Shadow isn't really a bug, it is the begining to a building into space waiting to be build, and when it doesnt "hardback" it disapears, would be a bug if it stay there until it will be hit to die.

It's the best defense for a monarch imo, you can do alot of thing with it.

To know these things showed the difference before, now i guess it doesnt really matter lol

Landherr. That transfering of units is considering cheating. ALways has been. You really shouldn't do that. Its on the same level as open gates and off mapping. Frowned upon. I hope you don't do that in real games because I don't see how people play with you.

You are funny. I'd consider coming back if Double also came back. If nothing else, just to show you how bad you are. But realistically I don't need to prove anything. It would be pointless.

BTW your youtube account has been closed...
