Here are two replays of me vs an Unfair AI. It is in fact a fortifier AI, because we hate to see Attack AI's building nothing but Siege. For the first two replays I'm building only Scouts because it has been suggested that they are ineffective units, while I think they are a little bit too cost effective. Mind you, the same people who suggest they are ineffective are probably the people who kill you online using scouts.
Please feel free to critique and give feedback. And if an Unfair AI is difficult for you, please have a look and see how I manage to pull out the win.
Two "Power of Scouts" replays:
Cykur Advent vs Unfair
Cykur Vasari vs Unfair
OK, it has been suggested that it was just a bit too easy to kill one Unfair AI and I need to step it up a notch. Well, I have good news and bad news. The good news is I have a replay here showing me fighting 9 Unfair AI. The bad news is the game was so long that I had to play it in a couple different sessions, unfortunately my first session was ended due to a memory allocation error (ok ok, Sins had been running for a VERY long time) -- and due to this, the first record doesn't work. So I have provided parts 2 and 3. Part 2 is still pretty significant because it shows that I'm holding the line and it is where I make my first pushes to take the fight to them. Part 3 is kinda boring, it just shows how I am slogging my way through enemy systems while fending off the AI fleets on defense. I don't actually play the whole game out, because it becomes pretty clear the AI's are no longer able to mount a serious threat to me, I own almost half the planets, I am #1 in every statistic, and I have more cash than I can spend.
In the link you will find a rar file. In the rar file is a folder. In the folder are record files that need to go into your Sins record folder and save game / stats files that can go into your single player save game folder if you want to check them out. The save game file is for anyone who wants to verify my starting opponents and maybe make an attempt at playing out the game from my starting position. The autosave provided is 15 minutes into the game where I have gotten my first starbase up, and provides a more secure starting spot.
Most people probably just want to watch part 2, where they can see tactics to fend off all the AI and then go on offense. I have to warn you, there is a SIGNIFICANT amount of carnage happening here, and these replays may not be suitable for children or small animals.
Cykur vs 9 Unfair AI
And here is one more! Because the record file was messed up for the first part of my previous battle vs 9 Unfair AI, I started up another one -- this time as Advent, fighting 9 Unfair. I don't have time to finish this game right now (I'm moving this weekend), but this replay demonstrates how to hold the line and start pushing back againts 9 AI's. By the end of the replay I have taken several of the AI worlds, including an AI homeworld. There is still a LOT of fighting to go before I reach the tipping point, but I'm making good progress. I figured I would upload it so people can see the early stage of a fight versus many computer opponents which they couldn't see in my last replay.

I see there are a fair amount of downloads, but not many comments. Let me know if you like these replays or get anything out of them so I know whether I should upload any more.....
