    i get attacked by a guy that sends in 3 waves of 5 mega tanks. Due to time listed on battle log...I'm guessing he coins them cuz a full squad of mega's can't be built in 2 minutes and I'm pretty sure he can't keep 15 of them prowling his yard waiting to attack me.

    Anyway, I've built and re-built my base a dozen times using your tips, other tips, even tried unconventional stuff and I just can't stop him. His second wave normally dies and leaves at about the 30% dmg point which means 80-90% of my defenses are now dead. So, teh third wave literally walks in and if I'm lucky I kill 1-2 of the final wave.

    I'm a bit frustrated trying to stop wave after wave of "the big dog"...any ideas? P.S. my mines do a decent job cuz normally half of them are exploded when I log on, but, not enough to stop that kind of armorment. And because he wrecks me constantly I can't keep enough res in my base to upgrade turrets past lvl 8. I'm sort of stuck at the top of the lower lvl stuff for everything...now stuff is so expensive that it is basically out of reach if I can't stop this guy. Unless I stay online 24/7. I've tried spending res and even if he only gets a few hundred thous of my res he still coins 3 mega fleets... :(

    Any suggestions??

    make a better base. He's probably a coiner....

    Thanks again gio. I think some of lars too, but hey, 7 challengers, 3 razors and 8 cobras attacked. No resource loot. still getting my buildings that are busy. My fly of course has more units, but I took a bunch out and looted some before leaving the game. BTW all units deployed were lost. I'll keep working on it

    Yes. pray they don't upgrade their megas. LOL only kidding, it's difficult to get the best base vs high level megas. But I'm working on it.

    Here's another quick tip in regards to the world map.

    NEVER send out platoons with just ground support units only. There will be people out there who guarantee will attack unguarded platoons by baiting with fast ground troops like flamethrowers then pick off your units with air support. Unless you want to spend hours repairing units like mega tanks, don't get caught out.

    Look forward to stats and records table in the near future for WC. Will include EXP gain, EXP needed to level, mines damage, and much more.
    Interesting to see how alliances work with the Damage protection. Any ideas?

    The gatling has much better defences against air units simply because it is a vehicle, and moves much faster than hercules so it can protect units better. But people can still bait mega tanks away due to much longer range, so if you know you're gonna get attacked by someone like that it may be better to use lasers, challengers or even paladins.

    English please. and you don't need to protect that enorm oil factory, all you must do is put 6 Mortars surrounded with Turrets somewhere on the base.

    Another tip - Seperate attacking force from defensive force.

    attacking force -> You attack with it (duh)
    defensive force -> You defend something with it, nothing else (base units, platoons arround base, deposit units, etc.)

    Results
    -The defending force is always ready once it's formed
    -The attacking force can be repaired separately
    -More useful later on, because repairing tanks is VERY painful.

    Attacking force -> Up to 1300 space + 1300 space of air units. Use what you need to attack (Razorbacks, tanks, copters, cobras, etc.)
    Defensive force -> Formed up from the main base units (up to 2600 at CC5) and from defensive platoons (up to 2000 at SA10), usually 6 platoons, surrounding the main base.
    Tanks must be always (!) paired with AA-units.

    I'll probably start posting Quick Tips involving the new World Map soon, hang in there.

    I'll probably make a guide soon to teach people how to handle their platoons ;)

    Ok - I'm sure this has been asked before, but how do you get Gatling Trucks and Laser Tanks? Is it just time and Level?

    I've seen the term "AA unit" used a lot and still can't decipher what it means. What exactly is an AA unit?

    Never surround your base with platoons, they'll always die.

    Quick tip: See my guide for quick tips. [thread=205735]Gentleman's Guide Factory[/thread] ;)

    If there's enough participation from users in this thread, I will begin another section. Also, I need ideas for new sections. I'm making a health chart for buildings so I need many people because it requires experimenting and I can't do that alone because I need people from various levels. In exchange of your contribution, you'll have your name in GOLD near the chart.
