Hey Guys, I just got that starter pack and I don't really know how to use the Jackals and Nightmares. Can anyone give some advice please? I have 5 of each.

Thanks Ahead of time

    Jackals are great baiting units, especially if you ever get corrosive coating.
    Nightmares have splash, so wall targeting can kill things, and take reduced damage from mines.
    To all you people who can't tell, this is a TAG.
    If you did something wrong, don't **** about it to Kixeye. Man up, and accept what has happened as your fault.

    Jackals, just keep em moving around, NEVER let them stay, nightmare goes good with Doran (if u have) and with the proper ws and handle (use their splash and move horizontally/perpedicular against target with slow projectile) u can flat any base, their my choice lol (even though a lot player said them weak)

    Considering as he has bought, and apparently needs, this package, I would say he doesn't have 110 mil res cap (correct if wrong). W/o this much metal and oil, you won't be able to build Doran, even if Andy somehow got 600K exp. But yeah, that's a good strategy.

    Yeap, highly likely, but maybe..., or just put ultra as meatshield and nightmare will do its job, or if Andy (was) an experienced player and can handle a lot controls, then just use both of them together, spread nightmare and set fire at will while controlling the jackals round and round as bait.

    Jackals : Put them with Charged Ord.
    Nightmares: I don't use them unless I have splash customised.
    YOU WILL NEVER GET ME!

    Only put 1 or 2 Jackals w/ CO, as this component reduces damage.
