BETA: Dropfleet Tactics

PostFri Aug 05, 2016 5:34 pm

After all of you just gave me Positive Feedback about my big BETA Reports, ill do some more for you.

This time its about small games but with some specialized Fleet Builds!

So ill do about 4 Videos with each will count 3 Battles at skirmish lvl so up to 999 Points per Fleet.

These are my thoughts about Tactics:

1. Ground Domination, all about Troops and Bombardement

2. Space Domination, all about anti-ship weapons and denying enemy Troops their way to the City's

3. Medium and bigger, Build with Cruiser's or bigger Class ships only (not 100% possible because of the Fleet Build restrictions)

4. Light and smaller, Build with Frigate's or smaller Class ships only (not 100% possible because of the Fleet Build restrictions)


I Built 4 all purpose lists one for every Faction! Then i built a List for every Tactic i want to show you.

After this i compared witch Faction's Tactic List is the Strongest, this List will play against the other 3 Factions with their all purpose standard lists. So that makes a total of 12 Games 3 per Tactic!

I will shorten the Battles to get all 3 Games into hopefully 30 Minutes.... i'll just Show the situation after each pair of Battelgroup activation's in the first Game, the other games will just get a round up so to keep them evan shorter. At the end we'll see if the Tactic can stand against all enemy Factions!

This time i'll do them directly in English and maybe afterwords in German...

Oh, no! Turn it off and put it in a Baggie full of rice and let it sit there for a day. The rice will absorb the water out of the iPhone, and you should be OK. We've had this happen before, and this rice trick works really well.

Don't worry so much about the length. You're conveying good information, so take your time.

I'm re-watching your first series, UCM vs PHR, now. Good stuff!

Best of luck with your phone!

Hope it is okay.

I had an iPhone fall into water (and fish poop) about 4 years ago, it latest e next 18 months until I traded it in. They can be quite water resistance since the gaps into them are small and water s air bubbles can hold out the water for a few seconds.

Thanks again for doin this for us.

One tactic I have thought of for shaltari is to spend the game dropping as many units into their home objects as possible, before chain gating them forwards to contest and fight over the other objectives.

This tactic will depend on.

Yes i did that already in my Big Battle with Shaltari, and i will do as well in this Video. But you need to be carfull, if you redeploy your Ground Troops, they start to count at the new location next Turn!

So redeploy at turn 6 is a no go, because there is no Turn 7, and they would not count! To fight you'll need to Redeploy at Turn 4 latest so you can fight in Turn 5 and manage to get the Sector at last Turn 6!

Thanks for the report, can't wait for the next half.

I assume that void gates can only deploy when in atmo. And this is why you didn't deploy any shaltari units in turn 1. This, along with restricted redeployment on turn 6, really hampered the fill the backfield with hedgehogs and fling them forwards tactic.
