My experience with Ion Tanks is that they are a really, really good supplimental unit.

Actually waht I meant is that all units will auto target the ion tanks first because they are more expensive.

I despise Ion tanks...mostly cause I'm the one they are being used on. And they are very annoying when being used against you.

A few ion tanks in each tank division sure helps. Mixed units=win.

I've notced that ion tanks are the best 'leveler' unit. That is they 'level' the playing feild, mostly by incapaciting a lode of uints, so you're force can do neat things.

IMO ion tanks are about as perfect as they need to be. They simply outline the need to flank.

And I've noticed Air SUPPORT is useful against Ion tanks, cause they can't hit air.

But some people missunderstand air SUPPORT in this mod. They try to brawler rush with ground attack helo's. And then they run into some flack and are blown to smithereens. You can't win with just support...but it is much easier with support. Support like ION TANKS!

thank you!
zoombie makes a very good point when he says this, 2 level 2 GD AAA tanks can take out a horde gunship type planes. This isnt Absolute Annihilation, people! you need strategy and wits to win here!

oh and i completely agree with ion tanks. Station a few with your turret line and consider it okay until arty rolls out.

I agree.

Now for something completely different. We are a bunch of friends who play EE regularly. We are not extremely good and would probably be called noobs by some of you guys. But I├óÔé¼Ôäóve noticed two things in our games.

1) No one ever uses the helicopters.

2) In 1on1 URC tends to win a few more games than GD. Of course the skill of the player matters more than the team but it seems URCs faster expansion speed wins many games.

Is this true in your games?

1) If your not using helos your missing a HUGE part of GD's mobility. Plus.. umm... lvl 3 airsdrops with the uber lvl 3 tranpors of dewm?

2) use transport helos. =P

^What hunter said...

Transport helos are very important for GD.
GD is also the harder of the two sides to play, so that may have a slight influence, with GD you have to keep thinking that your opponent will always be 1 step ahead of you, URC will always be able to see your movements while you cannot se theirs, and NI (will be) just plain faster. You have to think ahead and plan accordingly, transport helos can be very usefull in increasing your drasticly limited mobility...
