You can't just sit back and tech yourself, you have to put pressure on the traveler player. AP ammo wolves are great against them, don't go heavy on titans though just get a few to mix in. Orcas and maybe two or three rocket hammerheads for fast support, don't lose them unnecessarily though. Capture tech buildings and keep the map heavily scouted and make sure you cut of their scouts.

The aim of all this is map control, keep control of the map and the traveler player will have to take risks when expanding as they won't be able to see much of the map, this works great on decision. Although when you do get your tech up firehawks are important but don't go heavy on them, don't waste time with mammoths because they are too slow for the hex and often end up being captured by cultists. Instead, go behemoths and garrison rifles and rockets into them, keep up the air but only use it for support.

Again, there lots to say, just keep your unit count high and try to hit them where it hurts.


No Mammoths? I always go Mammoths when playing Scrin, just rely on Hammerheads for anti-Cultist duty. Of course, you're the better player, but the last time I massed Juggs vs. Scrin, they just teleported the Hex into them.

the titans/wolv mix will kill any scrin unit before he gets tripods but he will need to retreat his harvs from damage, giving you the eco advantage, crank out a marv for meatshield and detech the scrin player, wolvs are suprisingly good at killing scrin structures, so double warf tier 1 spam him.

Have you forgotten about Stormriders? 4 of them can kill Wolverines pretty fast, while a simple Portal and some Disintegrators will clean up your expensive, slow Titans once the Wolverines are gone. It's pretty standard for Scrin to go Stormriders quickly these days for harass/defending against Orcas/Hammerheads. You'll need Pitbulls and Slingshots, and even that doesn't guarantee success until Tungsten. By which time you'll be looking at a Hexapod. If you had APCs, the Stormriders wouldn't be as much of a problem, as AP APCs deal with them pretty nicely, but the over-specialized Stalons army is screwed on that front too.

Furthermore, your MARV is useless, 2 or 3 Tripods can guarantee its death. Spend your money elsewhere unless you can get 5K from running over a Tib Field to make up for it.

ST doesnt get apcs, and rockets are always a fickle choice vs scrin IMO (swarm)

stormriders will work well if your opponent is pushing you with wolves/titans or using low tier air units like orcas or hammerheads, since it will force them to make pits/slings instead.

gz and i deal with scrins very differently.. i make pitbulls as standard so storms wont work vs that obviously tongue.gif

Stoochie's strategy will definitely work better than anything n00b Green Zero can come up with. numchuks.gif

If they had the hexa just send a hammerhead or two with rifelmen and AP upgrade to assasinate the prodgi

and during the healing of the hexa if it escaped with wormhole attack the base of that scrin and try to destroy the command center and the air ports , then just eat his base slowly

enough behemoth kills everything
use marv + mammoth for meat shield while behemoth powerhouses
spread out your behemoth so he doesn't crush them and have enough mammoth to deal severe damage if he tries to
id had some success v trav lategame cause his hexapods get hit extremely hard every attempt it makes torward my army. I wore him down with firehawks killing whatever i can forcing him to heavily defend from air raids and become vulnerable to steamroll
