Yeah I used the ions area effect damage well too, doing an ion attack in between two buildings can end up doing more damage that hitting one directly on, especially if you have a nuke or two to back it up.

If you saw an enemy finished a nuke deep in their base, how would you destroy it? I would use 2 ion attacks.

Yeah I think the ion recharges faster than they can get a shot with the nuke off, but you'd have to be careful that you don't forget to fire a second time or that they don't repair it. I think troops are more reliable. You can sacrifice quite a few troops and still you are saving money in the long run because it would cost heaps to repair what a nuke can do.

Against AI
First: Get yourself a timer, set it to 5 minutes (360 seconds) that's the ammount of time you have
Second, move all your builders AWAY from your pod, put a simple builder in a garrison, and make all the others to their normal jobs, but all on the other side of your base
Third: Get a APC and fly in, or go on a all out assault
(If you don't have both, then you just wait and do nothing)
Fourth: Do not use the ion cannon yet, only use it when: The Enemy is attacking and your forces are away OR your forces have reached the nuke and are trying to kill it, and it's down to 20%, then you can finish it off(Ion does little damage IMO)
Fifth: Ask why you don't have a nuke, and why the AI has....for every second you need to think you need to hit your head against a wall.

Against Player:
1. Send in a few forces from the side, and some in the front
2. If that fails, quit and say that your PC crashed

here's a tip...
I've noticed(can't confirm it myself, haven't played in awhile) that AI opponents don't build mines over BMU locations that they didn't locate themselves... if someone can confirm this, then a good strategy would be to locate all of the BMUs near an enemy base, causing them to be cut short on resources! I can't confirm this myself right now, but it may be something to look in to...

They only build at pre-defined locations. So it doesn't matter if you located it or not, they will still only build at certain locations

Har de har harr I've not played this in years, but I just made loads of those robots which shoot massive vortexes. You will probably know what robot this is  :roll: Since the CPU is so easy, I would just go into First person view of one of these vehicles and blast them to kingdom come. As soon as I die, I would throw in a whole army of them at the enemies along side a few  :gorilla:  :wink:

Very interesting... I think you're right, that'd make an interesting situation.

I like using knight templars in first person to take out small groups of attackers

Yeah, judas warlords aren't strong enough by themselves to stay alive for long

in regular skirmish battles if there are just you and another team, when you first start off build a light infantry and make some grunts and reapers and quickly send them over to attack the enemy constructors and civilian factory so they cannot build fighters and then just destroy their locators and building/pod for a quick and easy victory
