Here you can attach multiplayer and perhaps any skirmish/strategy replays you think are interesting to watch.
The release of 008 final redefines the gameplay of many generals. The rather under-used Fuel Truck is now an important part of Flame's arsenal while the avenger delay (until rank 3) in Air Force forces a more creative use of his avation. Older guides written for 007 still remain partially relevant, however replays of course do not.
I think it's about time for a replay/strategy topic.
After all, replays are one of the best way to learn right?
I'll start off with my exhaustive pack of 50 replays which I've gathered since the start of this year.
Found within are a vast variety of games involving 2 up to 8 players (Yes, none of them are played with AI).
Here is a little preview, to show you what to expect:
Thanks to Persun AKA Sandro/Su for his walkthroughs (and good plays).

Some of my favourites include:
"20150101_[Demo]v[Lazr]TheMicroMacroDilemma.rep" "20150101_[SupW,Infa,AirF,Flam]v[SupW,Nuke,Chem,Infa]ItActuallyWorks.rep" "20150118_[Flam,Cybr]v[Lazr,SupW]SupplySniping2Good.rep" "20150123_[AirF,SupW]v[AirF,SupW]ThisIsNotTopGun.rep" "20150129_[Cybr,AirF]v[Slth,Infa]HisSeraphIsTurnedOn.rep" "20150130_[Infa]v[Aslt]Love(Of)FlyingTransports.rep" "20150212_[Chem,Demo]v[Infa,Demo]PoweredByMicro.rep" "20150219_[Lazr]v[SupW]ThatInfamousShield.rep" "20150219_[Nuke]v[Nuke]WhenInDoubt...BaseSwap.rep" "20150221_[Infa,AirF]v[Demo,Flam]FearOf(the)Elite.rep"
The Full list
You may often find the longer/detailed games gave a bigger filesize.
Also, you may have noticed a naming pattern with some of the replays. Improvements are welcome.
Generals are named short after their worldbuilder counterparts. They suggests the developers may prefer "Chemical" to "Toxic" general.
This is simplified with my unreleased WIP powershell script.
I started with something like this at first:
This will append the modified date to the beginning the file.
To iterate through the .rep files in the current directory, call the above with:
However that goes waaaaay beyond the purpose of this topic.
(PM me if you happen to have 50+ replays and in desperate need of sorting that mess)
The "Showcase" series such as:
focuses heavily on one general in each replay and either shows off their tech-tree, how to use their units effectively in various situations and/or attempt to maximize the efficiency of that general. For example in the above game, AirF's planes were micromanaged well which allowed them to be very cost-efficient by constantly damaging tank's supply lines. Angled structure placement made it challenging for tank to avoid security systems.
Of course most (if not all) of these were played on standard maps, $10000 and tournament mode on.
Players picked their generals at random as if it's some sort of an unspoken rule.
Lastly, Here is a virus scan.Just in case.
I hope to meet you on the battlefield General
