GAH, can't even find the opponent's SILOs/Radars/Airbases

Postby PhantomTa2 » Sun Oct 01, 2006 5:37 pm

Every time I try to send the fighters out to find them from my carriers, they just get shot down nearly immediately and I don't find anything, maybe a radar or two. I know this isn't a bug and it's just me that sucks at the game, but I'd really appreciate any friendly tips or advice others could send my way.

I send lots of fighters, so they all arrive at once, in the hope that one might get a little way over their land. It works so long as all the fighters arrive in a group.

I tried that, that's how I got a few radars found, but other than that, nothing. The tutorial mission to destroy the opponent doesn't really prepare you properly, I kicked ass at that one, (in my opinion, although I've seen alot higher scores posted here), but even in a game against one CPU opponent, I just can't do anything. Maybe I'm just not thinking about the game in the right way

that's when you realize that they have a LOT of AA defences in a small area. :)

do what mrbunsy said, send in a lot of fighters at once.

Thats when you become their ally. Get their radar and then backstab. :P

Get them to be your ally with the promise of annihilating the other guy.

I probably should have been more specific, I meant with the CPU as opponent......I'm far from being confident enough to play MP, given the amount that I suck and blow....(which I thought was physically impossible until I tried this game)

Almost everybody is new(ish) to the game right now. So just try a multiplayer game or two. There are no stats, and nobody will execute your family for losing.

Yeah, I might try.......will have to be in a couple of hours, though.....even in single player, when you're gaming, there's nothing worse than having your 4-year old kid run into the room and asking to have Hoodwinked or Spongebob put on the TV or something. lol
