I am kinda mad at the moment with my last game.
I have played COH2 for a few years, never delved into OST. So for the past couple of months, I've been playing OST 1v1's. And I love it until I started fighting the USF.
I can't for the life of me play against them without stressing out. The amount of pressure they put on is too much.
I was fighting against Armoured Company, I was using Elite Troops. Nothing I was doing was working
My infantry would falter against riflemen. My MG42 did well, but it's not hard to outflank and MG.
My Tanks were doing great, up until he started spam building his tanks.
I can't counter the Stuart that comes out within 5 minutes of the game, at the point i can't even build my PAK 40. So the stuart justs absolutely minces everything.
The engineers are absolutely disgusting, especially with the flamer.
I have a replay and i'd really like someone to tell me where i went wrong. I felt like my micro was on point (Up until the end where i was tired and fatigued). It felt like whatever i was doing was never enough. I'd kill a tank, and 2 more would take its place.
Kinda mad that i can't effectively fight USF. I am using Meta commanders and build orders and it's still doing nothing.
as far as infantry goes, keep your grens at distance when fighting rifles, if rifles get close, fight only if you have supperior numbers.
As far as tanks go, I'm not sure which tanks U had in mind but P4 is on par with Sherman so unless u got anti-tank naded, it should be a fair matchup.
Stuart shouldn't really come at 5 mins mark unless he outplayed you with fuel advantage. Also stuart is not really that good vs infantry, it will hit them but stuart is primarily used to counter 222/Panzer 2.
Pak should hit the field at approximately the same time as stuart.
As far as engineers go, you can also upgrade your pios with flamers and do the same "disgusting" thing to your opponent.
Also "meta commanders" don't mean a lot I think, elite troops is a good 1v1 commander, make use of those G43s and panzer tactician.
