"If a Devourer Appears , Get Everything out of there And run like as if Your Life Depended on it Unless you Want a Mouthful of Scrap Metal"
Real Experience , I Tried to Eat on a Devourer when i First got ZR Until i noticed that It One-Shots Small Units with Masses of Bullets/lasers/blasters/plasma/rockets and Ignores The Larger Ships , i Pulled Everything out of the Planet After that
"If a Hostile Planet Seems to be Receiving More then Normal Amounts of Reinforcements , Hurry in and Destroy The Warp gate Before They Build up and Swarm you with Ships"
No Real Experience , But it Should be Common Sense , Right? Right?
"Don't Stop Moving , a Sitting Army is Target Practice for Anything that Can shoot"
Why , Yes
"When Retreating , Leave Atleast a Few Ships Behind so that the AI Fleet Isn't on you when you Get out of there"
Obvious , But still Unknown
"If Everything is Hopeless for your Invasion Force , Don't Waste more Ships and Thus more Resources Trying to Turn the Battle right , Just Get out and Attack Another Time , The Losses will Outweight the Gains if you Decide to Do a Last stand"
Common Sense Knocks , i See way too Many People Fighting a Hopeless Battle And Way too Less People Retreating to Fight another day
"Agressiveness Results in Heavier Losses and Fewer Gains"
Yes , i am Agressive , But i Know when to Stop
"Be an Oppotunitist , The AI's not going to Fall down if you Keep Striking Where or When they have the Advantage , Oppotunity Knocks , But once , If you are Going to Even Win the War , You'll Have to Answer"
Perhaps not for Veterans , But It's a Excellent Advice for Begineers
"Always Keep a Defense Line up To make Sure the AI doesn't Simply Roll over with Impunity and Destroy your Base Once your Attack Force Falls"
DEFENCE - an Overlooked but Effective Stratergy
"Make Sure you Attack from Several Directions if you Can , And it's Even Better if you can Split up the Defending Force with Shooting at The Main Attackers and The Flankers"
Trust Me , i Won a Many good Battles with this
"Ensure your Attacking Force isn't Funneled Down in One or Three lines And Try to Split them up"
Gettin' Tired of People Rushing their Fleet in Lines , This is not the American Civil War or the Reniasence Age , Where Having Soldiers in Lines is Effective , This is the Future Era of Space combat
"To Ensure that Hostile Area of Effect And Directional Weaponry is Kept at it's Minimum Effecienificy , Try to Split your Attacking Force So that the Enemy can't Catch All at once"
....But don't Split them too Far!
"If the AI Starts to Confuse you , Remain Calm and Bunch Up your Ships at the Required Building/Ship"
I Ran a Test With this Before , if i Were to Panic and Sent ships in all Directions attempting to Destroy the AI ships , i normally Get Nothing but Scrap metal , If i Didn't Panic and Placed all in one , The (AI)Attack Normally Fails
