Battle tips
« on: October 12, 2006, 02:20:08 am »
This board didn't have any posts or threads so I couldn't leave it all alone.  Post any tips you have about general battle or specific skirmish levels.  If anyone has a question, they can post here to or make another thread on this board.  I'll be happy to answer any skirmish questions or battle tip questions.  May not reveal all my strategies though.

I'll Give one:


On the Level Siege!

Yellow and Green:
Walk a Gorilla behind the base and simply destroy the Pod
Green:
1st Person Eradicator in the midst of the battle, Try to shoot on the Higher parts
Blue:
Use the Goliath to snipe some Reapers, and when they get closer to shoot you ambush them

Attacking:
Focus your attacks on one point (and 1st person Eradicator)
Use the 1st Person Gorilla, Walk arround to avoid damage
Get in a Warlord and do some drive-by's in the midst of the battle or just before
Don't use your reapers as a Decoy, simply send them all in(All at once! :P)

Defending:
Put your Machines far from the edge
Make sure that you create a trap: Stand back a bit and let the enemy go in one by one, and then you kill 'em (one by one)
Send in 2 Knights or more to destroy the: 1. Eradicator(Green) or the 2. Goliath(Blue) or 3. the Gorilla(Yellow) or 4. the 3 Crusaders(Blue)

I've got one

on almost any battle (3-4 players) just sit back and watch the other teams fight it out between themselves and when there is only one left you can easily defeat them because they only have half an army. easy as.

I'm a fan of using the flight APCs to drop powerful units into the heart of an enemy base it creates alot of confusion that opens up oportunitys to wreak some real havoc. It takes time but if you can manage it then it's not a bad way to do things.

You don't have the problem of getting 'disassembled' by several plasma rifle carrying machines? :-D
I tried the flying APC thing numerous times, but it always get shot out of the sky, unless I fly it myself...

Making the Enemy to spend Resources:

In the Skirmish Mode, the enemy always send 2 units stronger+ 3 intermediates + 2 weaks, when yours transports of Resource are attacked, even the point of the adversary shots.
A good tactics is search a valley, whose mountains are in the edge of the route of these transports,move 4 Reapers with Dual Laser+ 2 Constructors and make a rapid work: construct High Range Bateries(blue shot) bloking the route, in the time and local rigths (to that its no they go off against any enemy unit or building),locating the constructors behind of the bateries, to rapair its.So locating the Reapers in the High of the Mountains.

  When the bateries they go off the first transport, they will arrive reinforcements which will be EXPLODED(HAHAHAHA) :evil: for bateries in set with the Reapers.So the enemy will be sending units spend more an more resources!!! :jackson:
JAH EH!

Uhm, I guess the full version uses different names xD

Easier version: Create a APC and a Rhino, load up and send them to the enemy's pod(or normal mine) Voilla! BMU's Stolen! And the enemy can destroy you, they won't get the BMU's back

PS: The full version hasn't got Quadruple Missile Sentinels, it has been replaced with Anti-air Sentinels

If I remember correctly, the demo doesn't have Quadruple Missile Sentinels. They were still Air Sentinels.

If it wasn't in the demo how do I know of it existing?

If you're playing a skirmish, and the area is surrounded by mountains, get some dozers into an APC, biuld a missle site on the surrounding mountains, come back in half an hour to find smoking craters, no buildings, easy win - as long as you site the missiles properly!

Never attack until the battle is already won...

Sun Tzu quoter :P

Anyways, it's takes kinda long to research
1. A Flying APC
2. Behemoth Mek
3. Leviathian Missile Launcher

And it takes long to build, it's slow to fire, often misses units, hard to defend, etc etc etc

Nice tactic but I doubt you can just leave it alone for 30 minutes ;)
