The obvious answer for any FFA is to just go tank/scout. Its unbeatable!

I was about to post a detailed guide on how to play FFA as Protoss and win every game in which you are not 4-9 pooled, then I realized that this is a joke topic.

Yeah... I suppose.
Get as many expo's as possible without aggravating someone. Scout and try to harass your immediate enemy (in the FFA maps, there always seems to be one your in direct competition with).

My standard build would roll this.

Mass Ravens.

All of your Mothership + Carrier ball dead in 10 seconds. In fact, I played a game against a guy that did this today. He immediately GG'd because he had no economy left.

Do ravens drop that turret crap? Because someone tried that. I usually have my share of the map cannoned to hell and still have 10k+ minerals.

Ravens have hunter seeker missiles that own pretty much everything. And usually, if a guy is trying to fight you down to the bone, you probably won't have a 10k, or cannons in that manner.

Seeker Missiles are slow as hell. You just move the unit out of the way, or, if worst comes to worst, suicide only the unit. Easiest method is just to run away though.

Oh right. To win FFA: Turtle.

Turtling = starving yourself of resources.

All your base are belong to them who aren't afraid to expand.

Imo you should play defensive but not turtle.

Seeker Missiles are as fast as Motherships. If a player is using mass carrier/mothership, targeting 10 seekers on the mothership would kill them all.

I must try that. I tried using nothing but zerglings and banelings yesterday, 2/3 isn't to bad.

Done! Quite boring up until the end, but it was indeed faceroll!

FFA I killed them all :)
Me = Ymir.. I fast expanded, got 2 void rays and took out most of the purple player's base, got around 5 carriers and took out terran then went for other Protoss and he had like 100 void rays and i still took him out even when cannons assisted him :)

This is exactly what I was saying. Don't anger people and continue to build up your own forces.

Relatively ancient and inactive

My most successful strategy is to go fast zealots (two gateways, don't be afraid to sacrifice some eco) and send them at my enemy at five or six. I haven't FFA'd a lot with this build, but I always took down the person I'm in direct competition with for the goldies within six minutes. Then, build up and start face-rolling. 12 gateways, 8 starports and 5 robotics facilties, 200 mixed army. If the enemy massed a single unit and your army died, you should still have enough time to counter it. :D . I once even took out all three people with the six zealots, it was weird.

Neiv shouted: Depending on your situation you may be able to use 18/19/20/21 to select all players in a force?
thanks! Will use the force # instead most likely, if they're in the same one

IlyaSnopchenko shouted: Anyone knows whether current player (13) is counted among allied (15) when specifying targeting flags for idle_orders in AISE?
It is not counted; the dll seems to accept a combination of multiple players there like most other extended commands, but pyai doesn't seem to allow specifying them in targeting flags

IlyaSnopchenko -- Here's the idea - I want to specify idle_orders for area effect spells like Psi Storm and Plague so that the computer avoids hitting its own (13) or allied (15) troops
[2021-1-16. : 4:05 pm]
IlyaSnopchenko -- Or do I need to set a dedicated condition?
