The best way to learn how to play this game is with replays. Every time you lose a game, it's by watching the replay you can hope to understand why you lost. And if you know why you lost a game, you can avoid doing the same mistakes next time.
What I offer you here is replays for several maps where you can see the most successful economical developments I know for each of them. The strength of an economy is estimated after 20 minutes of game by using the following formula :
Any player who wants to submit a better replay than those hereafter can send me it to firstname.lastname@example.org. I can use some days to watch and publish it. Here are the rules for your replay to be published :
no team work (you're not allowed to have any ally in your replay)
cheating : off
no rush option : 20 minutes
prebuilt units : off
no mod enabled
better result after 20 minutes sharp than the current record holder for the map chosen or no replay available yet for the map chosen
Please send me with the replay your in-game name, the name and web address of your clan (if you have one) and the four values needed to estimate your economical development after 20 minutes (see the score screen of your replay). Any lie or cheating will lead for you and possibly for your clan to be banned from this challenge. Good luck to any entrant.

Notice that for some maps the result of the formula is always quite higher than for the others after 20 minutes. It means we have more resources available on these maps, id est war is going to involve more powerful units there. For instance, with the map “The Ditch”, it is possible to build several nukes before the 20 minutes !
