TOPIC: The biggest mistake people make...

The biggest mistake people make... 1 year 5 months ago #6154

People playing openttd make a lot of mistakes, e.g.:
- creating too short routes at the beginning, and just waiting five years to get any money,
- do not checking cargo payment rates to see what is the most profitable,
- avoiding diagnonal tracks and creating sharp turns,
- waiting to satisfy the nearest demand (in CB), instead of taking care of next one or two...

But the biggest mistake they make is quitting when anyone plays better. Believe me, the best way to learn how to play is to watch someone better than you. And I mean: strategy, not the speed of tracks building.

So, watch and ask.
Many players here are ready to help you.

The thread was created to make the point, and also to reduce forum stagnation during vacations :)
Thank you and enjoy the game!

Here a picture of how not to do it. This brakes down a train SH'125 from 201km/h to 88km/h (for example). Try to build a 90° curve over some more tiles. ;)

That above underlined sentence is like Bullseye. Did that watching "someone who plays better than me" (referring to player named Alencar here) part quite recently in server#15 citybuilder and i have to say, it did help quite a lot by just watching someone else play.
Got to know multiple tips which i didn´t even know before and a bit better strategy for CB servers (for example transport shared orders, city layout for faster growth, better way to deliver goods to a city, etc).
