Just a fun trick

You can hide your mwg in a radardish and then burst out all of the sudden when you have enough troops accumulated, just so you know :lol: .

That is a usually good trick, especially in Darwinia alone... However, I don't think it will make too much difference if an actual person on the opposite team has a flamethrower at the perfect distance and it's being handled by the player himself.

how do you hide your guys in a radar dish?

You don't. What you do is you send your MWs around the radar dish, then you make another officer right next to them, and have him point towards the same spot where the MW's will repeatedly run around that same spot in a fast manner, kinda like Darwinia's follow command.

yes or you put one officer on one side the other on the other side and point them both into the radardish.

I think Darwinia Demo2 inspired this trick in you, but in Multiwinia this trick will easily be got rid of by other players, by killing your officers...
As a joke, I accept your idea ;)

I never played a darwinia demo, and your right when someone is attacking you at the radardish its over, but its more ment to gaher arge groups of mwg's while not ringing any alarm bells.

Yeah, I want to see how this tactic works. Let's play Dog Green Sector, with you as the attacker, and me as the defender!

your missing the point here, besides its not super great trick. But the point is that when playing for example monuments to heaven, you can gather a large troop of mwg, from your island while the enemy is ending his reinforcements to the other side. Then when you have gahered enough you can easily take his spawns.
