Greetings

Are there any high level games where a tower rush led to a victory? I really love alternative strategies but I heard that a trush is not viable from some threads I have read. What are the disadvantages, apart from using villagers which can't work elsewhere? E.g. I compared tower rushes to other games I played and noticed, that towers in Age of Empires 2 don't have that high of an attack strenght. They are like 1 archer.

I tried this strategy on low level and I like that it gives you map dominance, line of sight and a forward base where you can also mine your opponents ressources. Like monks, towers are really annoying which is that extra something.

I would like to hear your opinion!
You can also help me with my grammar, I am stil learning english.

if u can force ur enemy off ressources, like wood gold it can be successfull overall.
but ur eco is really crap on early feudal coz u move like 4-6 vills fwd, so ur castle age time is late
some pro player know how to defend a trush very well or counter it, so its also not a great success rate.

yeah yellow did trush in cot tourney so many times. i think game 5 vs Viper, viper tried to trush and failed. trolling ofc, coz he leaded 4-0 at this point.

from my understanding, how well a trush goes depends a lot on the map. for example if your opponent has foward gold then trush is a good option, i remember seeing jordan building a tower near daut's forward gold and winning in a big tournie

There's a difference between full trush and building a tower with fwd vills when u m@a push early feudal for example.

Viper wouldn't troll at that stage 11, If he lost 1 game vs daut for example he would have ended up in second place.
