Building Defences!

Postby silent @ DomiNation » Mon Jul 22, 2013 5:31 am

So defences... Everyone says defences are pointless but I Disagree! Well ok most of the time they are pointless but if you are not extremely active, instead of raiding you can upgrde your mines and build defences to protect your resources! Let's get started...
1. Rocket launchers.
Take my advice. Don't build them. Yes, they only cost metal and you can build a ton of them but I'm pretty sure they give most warships a attack bonus so they can be wiped our easily.
2. Light Lasers.
Light lasers are fantastic because only bombers and destroyers get attack bonusus from them! This makes them a excellent 'fodder' unit. A fodder unit takes damage whilst your harder hitting units do more damage. Build LOADS of these to protect your harder hitting units
3. Heavy Lasers
Heavy lasers are great for taking out the lighter warships such as light fighters and heavy fighters. Build lot's of these - they are fairly cheap and well worth building.
4. Gauss Cannons
It's time for the big guns! The hardest hitting defence unit va the plasma cannon these will take down battleships and cruisers with ease! They are also able to one shot the light fighter and heavy fighter. Build as many as these as you can afford once you have constucted a good amount of lasers.
5. Ion Cannons
Ion cannons work simaraly to foddetr - they protect your better defences. Due to their powerful shields ion cannons are remarkably stable and can be one of your last defences to go down in a fight.
6. Plasma Cannons
The hardest hitting unit, build these to take out dreadnoughts destoyers and most importantly BOMBERS.
7. Shield Domes
Build both the large and small shield domes to protect your planet.

Thank you for the great information. Do you know if the benefits of shields stack? Or should we only build one of each? Or any other benefit to building more than one?

The game limits only 1 Large and 1 small shield per planet. Likewise, you may only have 99,999 of each other type of defensive unit per planet.

Always good to have a Plan B.
That is prepare to loose. SO, build a radar, I say to at least level 9. Also ALWAYS have enough large cargo ships to hold all your resources.

If an attack is coming, you gotta figure its going to be big. Come on, they didn't come for a loose or a draw. And they probably brought along cargo veh. to get some plunder.

So plan B is when the alarm goes off, build ANYTHING (uses resources and can't be taken or destroyed once spent), then load up all your resources and leave town! If you want your combat vehicles to stay and fight, that is your decision. At least protect your resources, spy probes, and cargo vehicles that aren't going to attack anyways.

Another good strategy for defense, is to keep a second planet nearby and have your fleet split between them. Not only does this help prevent getting wiped completely, but it also hides your numbers. After assessing an early warning report, it may be that by pulling your fleet together, you will have the advantage. It is best to look at your radar station to help time the deployment to the planet under attack. Once your fleets are combined, FS your res and civil ships. If done correctly, you are in prime condition to collect the debris, and even launch a counter attack against a possibly defenseless opponent. This does take practice and a lot of luck.
