I NEED HELP! I was playing on open palms FFA. I was busy killing off 2 guys and i failed to notice that a UEF player had heavily turtled without any interference. (After 19 mins of so...) There was no way i could get near him. My air and land would be taken out by his air defences and his arti. Nukes would not help as he had an absurd amount of anti-nukes. Is there another way i could break his turtle besides using long range arti?

Many Thanks!

After 19 minutes without interference, any competent player will be untouchable. At that point, your only hope is freaking MASS long range arty (spread them out so he can't hit them with arty or nukes easily) or like 6 soul rippers (or sooprizers, or like 30 AC1Ks) with full training to go for a com snipe. Basically, if someone is left alone for that long they will almost definitely win.

nothing hurts like a mega fortress falling on your head laugh.gif

transports dropping several unpacked jackhammers will quickly blast through uef shields. wont work on other 2 though.

lolgun has freakishly long range for an unstoppable weapon

Heh, my favorite strategy...Build up anti-ground, anti-air, and anti-nuke, then while your defended, build absured amounts of long range artillery. :3 Sheilds dont last long in my game... Its also fun to watch them rage-quit... post-13661-1143531603.gif

That does work, considering he/she dosent allready have mass artillery allready, my favorite stratagy, teh Mass long range artillery might work. Also, if anti-air is placed just right, soul rippers wont last long, nor will the AC1000's... Depending on the fraction [hopefully UEF or Illuminate] that massed King K's or Universal Colossus would work... Only reason I know that is because i've had it used against me... And I've used it to break stale mates.

I dont belive it is the sheilds that are the problem.... But also, disruptor artillery would make a good counter to open up a hole in defences for you forces! Btw, what are jackhammers?


Just a few words, disruptor artillery, King K, AC-1000 and air-escort. The disruptor to disable turrets,etc in the way, the King K, and AC-100 to clear the ground, and the air-escort to eradicate enemy air. Also, simultaneously attacking with smaller forces to the sides along with the help of disruptor artillery would make him spread his forces. [if he has any] And if you are Illuminate, Get a space temple [even though he can send his forces through, your forces will be massed around it, untill you send them over, then quickly move the entrence/exit] and replace the King K with the Univeral, the AC-1000 with the Darkenoid, and the air-escorts may be a failure, but still, you need that little bit of extra security, right? By now im sure you get the concept, so I will shut up.... But not before that I tell you that cybran bomb bouners are effective. Thats all I have. :3
