Im playing Tau on about turn 3(?) of the DC campagin.
I try to take the spaceport from SM.
We both end up with the exact same number of captured servetors.
So , its a match to destroy the enemy HQs. He has at least 2 HQs (i think 3 total) spread out all over the map. I've seen , i swear at least 2 players worth of units on the screen at the same time from him, no clue where all this crap is comming from. Two commaders? wtf. Ok so anyhow its the damn AI right, its got to DIE.
Im pinned down in the bottom left corner where i started at , virtually unlimited resources but i cant get out!
I've got a full row of Broadsides, 2 drone ships and 3 er.. the ships that can do the missle burst.
The only upgrade the commader has is Missle Launcher.
Basicly i can "funnel" these MASSIVE number of SM by putting the drones out like crumbs but if i push out of this corner to were there is more than 1 choke point i get swarmed and have to back all the way up or get owned.
I've tried using Kroot of various types but really they just cannot survive the endless tide of SM damage. The only way seems to be to use virtually all ranged attackers.
I dont quite have "unlimited" resources , as i tried spamming out the ships not caring if they die or not but after about 10 minutes of that the resources start dwindling and its obvious i cant push all the way across the map that way.
The tide of drones has to stay on constantly or im dead. Only way to live is to get him to waste his ammo on drones and cloned broadsides (from the etherial caste guy)
Any ideas? I really would like to beat this damn AI at this point rather than just start over. Sort of a point of irritation with me now that i've wasted so many hours on ONE match lol.
Im not particularly good with what to do vs SM (or any of the races really) any general tips.. as well as tips specific to this map would be appreciated.
