Honestly, the game I linked was the first I stumbled upon. I recognized Black Mont Blanc's name and he had a high rating so I took a look.
It's not an anomaly.
Look at the unit data and you'll see that it's not a unit thing it's a map thing.
Some maps choke up. Others don't. Don't play on crumpets maps.
I'm skilled enough.

I did play against the top players and was a good match. They might still remember me too as I did play long enough to set my rep.
As for my artillery count, it's because I dislike using them. I favour rockets as a range units putting twice as much money in them than artilleries. I never got the artillery spam love. I had a high recon count. Haha, yeah, I put 900000G in them and 600000G in arties. (And I didn't play FoW very much.) It's probably all due to maps we played on. They played longer than me too and maybe used more often the broken COs on different map distribution.
It's really funny looking at those stats. We've all got units we liked. Benbever is into mechs way more than other people. Black Mont-Blanc spams way more infantry but is way less into mechs. Kam was way more into tanks than benbever.
infantry+arty+tank consistently totals 75-85%. people picked from being at the tops of various AWBW leagues or just people WWN would recognize as AWBWers. infantry are consistently hitting 55-60%.
Those three units cover the capturing, direct attack and ranged attack game. Is there anything else in AW? All the other units were still viable and used as seen fit.
As for infantry, they get spammed because:
-at the beginning of the game that's all you can afford, it's what you need
-later on, they start getting used as meatshields, so you keep spamming them in order to maintain their flow to the front
You won't see all that many in the midgame because they also happen to be the units that get destroyed the most. See stats. And so of course, unit composition of a player's current force doesn't usually include all that many infantry, on the right maps.
My maps don't get played. D:
I never did advertise them.
For more bragging rights, a topic on player tiers where some mention me favorably. I didn't play many games to reach that status and I had already quit then.
