View Full Version : More Deployments?
20th Feb 09, 2:04 PM
I've been looking around and can't seem to find any specific answers on how to get more deployments in one day.
Does anyone know the ratio or needed fury/resilience/speed to gain a second or third redeploy?
Can you max one to gain it or is it a need combo such as 3 stars in each? etc.
Thanks in advance!

You need a combination, typically the way to get an extra deployment is to get roughly 75% in your exp bar, that'll get you one, get 100% and you'll get two.
To get that far you need to at least max out one section and get the others to half way or three-fourths while capturing a strategic location during the mission (which adds a bonus exp).

lol gee is that all? How difficult is that to do later in the game? I'm at day 10 and it seems a little difficult to do.

I find that on Capt difficulty, its quite difficult to do. Now, I'm at a stage where I have to defend 3 places with only 2 days to do so else they will all expire. I need an extra deployment to complete all of them.
But its fun and I consider it a challenge to try to complete missions at the fastest time possible doing the most damage and keeping my losses to a minimal. Defend missions are the easiest to score, as long as you don't lose more than one squad leader.

Yeah, it's certainly not easy, but it adds a bit of depth to the campaign, forcing you to do some missions quickly and others more thoroughly. The easiest perk to max is Fury (wipe out everything on the map), but this is usually to the exclusion of time, therefore the best way to achieve this in a careful manner is go around the map very carefully, take out all the enemies, capture one strategic location, and then complete the mission with mininum losses, this should allow you one extra deployment on most missions.

What are deployments exactly? The game was a little vague on that, as in multiple missions per day?
that's basically it. you can only do 1 mission a day with some missions only last 2 to 3 days. more deployment = more mission that can be done in the same day
holding one of the 3 buildings also help i think. if you look at the galaxy map there's icons on the bottom left of the screen. just mouse over it and it will tell you what each does ( eg more shrines = more usage of the invincible move, @6+ shrines you get more XP)

So, here's a question for you guys about this. I've reached Day 9 with only 1 deployment to use, and four options to choose from (attacking the Eldar on Meridian, attacking the Orks on Typhon, or attacking the Tyranids on Calderis with two missions open). Obviously I won't be able to do all of the missions before the day is done. If I do one mission, will the others dissappear? Or will they still be available and just get tougher somehow?
if it doesn't have a timer on it saying "2 days left" then it should still be there the next day
not sure about the difficulty... all my guys are wearing terminator armor and lvl 20

Didn't see any saying "X Days Left", but maybe I didn't look closely enough. Probably some will have a timer, so I should do those first...
some will be stamped "Optional" and some will be stamped "Optional 2 days only" or something along those lines
i'm taking a guess the ones without time stamps are like 1 week+ long and the game doesn't notify you till it ticks down to 5 days or less ( i've never seen things which are 6 days left or higher )
there's about 3 or 4 optional on mine and i've been bouncing around the galaxy for at least 2 or 3 days now...

Having all the forges helps in getting your second and third deployment for the day, too.

You can get an additional deployment with 12-13 stars, and 2 additional deployments with 15 stars. For every Automated Factory you own on the world that you did the mission on will contribute another star towards an extra deployment.
Owning all the factories reduces the amount required to get additional deployments by one, meaning you only need 14 stars total to get 2 deployments.
