Tactics for Keeping Your Small Dropships Alive

PostWed Sep 16, 2015 10:39 pm

The Bay Area Meta is AA heavy and small flyers tend to not last very long unless they are carefully tended. Here's my thoughts (many collected from my opponents) on the best ways to keep your small dropships alive throughout the game.

Thanks for the article! Some bits of that I'd thought of ("hovering above a tall building without landing"), but lots of them (like going to the deck later in the move, I've never thought of. Another issue to remember, is if you are worried about mitigating fast mover attacks, keeping one eye on what lines of attack they'll have to take. Often they end up having to use a "lane" down the board one way or the other.
