HOw to kill enemy radars and not your own

Postby zoros dog » Thu Jun 30, 2011 2:33 pm

more tricks for free on forum for MOR xD

Even if they are on top of each other, if u zoom in, you can kill only the enemy radar and not your own.

Use the target circle, right click with bombers so you can make adjustments without actually sending the nuke off, then you can just set the nuke target (left click) when you have got it right:

Image

the nuke radius has to cover the center of the enemy radar but not the center of your own. the black dots in the pic are the centers.

And here it is:

This is great info, though I usually let the enemy nuke both our radars so I save a nuke. :lol:

one more thing this can be used for is shooting down silos more effectively. you can aim INFRONT of the silo, rather than directly on it. this will shorten to flight time (less chance of them being shot down), and change the angle at which they hit the silo (more chance of the silo missing the nuke). i don't do this though, it requires too much micro. mrmot might though :P

Great tip zoro's dog. I like the silo one especially. Altough be prepared for nightwatch and rus|mike to tell you this is not practical and chaotic messy tactics are always better.
However if you aim on the silo and it was shot just before it hit, you would still hurt it. If you aimed short and it got destroyed just before....hehehe :P

That silo trick is good but I don't see anyone using it: too much micro. It's pretty old one also.
