China: Building Placement Guide

By ScOtSmAn - 30th July 2011 - 17:28 PM

Most people randomly place their buildings not only for China, but also for other factions too. I try to make the best of my building placement, by placing them in a specific fashion will allow certain advantages, in comparison to having them randomly placed.

For most China versus China games I try to place my buildings so that the opponents Gattling tanks can't kill my Supply Trucks and slow my economy down. Having no economy will cost you the game, therefore it is imperative that your Supply Trucks are kept in working order.

When I'm playing a China versus China game, if I go for a fast Prop I try to place my Prop next to my main Supply at an angle that would not let a Gat in. The screen shot below will show you how I placed the building and then mined the supplies or my Prop center. When playing a China versus China game I would recommend putting the Prop Center at a slight distance away from the supplies as shown below:

China artillery can kill both supplies and Prop. You can also see in the screen shot below how I placed my Barracks next to my secondary supply in a way that a gat/tech cant kill my supplies.

Notice I then place mines around the remaining entrance to my supplies, in this case if a Gattling tank/technical tries to go around and kill my Supply Trucks and Dozer it will be killed by my mines. I will post up some videos of it so you guys can see how it works.

Another thing you can do, instead of placing a Barracks on the flank next to your secondary Supply, is you can have a Bunker placed there and still place mines around the secondary supply.

I'm sure most of you have seen how you can do a flank War Factory with mines and flank Barracks with mines, that way you can guard your MiG, Propaganda center etc. Here is a video which will help.





I have also tried surrounding my Airfield with mined buildings, which is also an effective way of preventing people from reaching your MiGs, below are some screen shots to show you what I mean.

Some may say the supply may be too close to the Bunker on flank but a smart China player wouldn't let GLA get it. When placing your buildings try to just think of a better place to put them, so they will help in other ways, other than production, rather than just putting them anywhere. At times a building placement may help you lose less buildings and they are helpful to keep your Airfield defended from incoming Technical filled with Terror's.


I hope everyone has learned a lot from the guide, more will be coming soon!
