What is your favorite SPACE battle tactic for EAW?
- Wait for enimies to come to veiw and hyperspace your units to attack(ambushing).
- Build a fleet and wait for your your foe to reach the final tech then assault!
- Just have units scout and tell your fleet to group up with the unit under attack.
- Or just do the unfun way and assault the enimie's space station.
Choose your tactic and compare to others, be sure to explain why you chose this.:rolleyes:
In simsh i ussaly wait for the enemy and wait until they bring a mon cal out and send a isd right behind it. Ik gc i dont have much of a chioce.
That's why I made this for shirmish, in gc you don't really have a choice.
well, i accuire money, and build ships, but i don't bring them in. once i feel i have enough, i build a bunch of scouts, ping the areas around their fleet(or station) and ambush. works every time. its rather satisfying to see ISDs and other ships hyperspace one right after the other.
For the Emperor! Knights of Caliban!

i do what hawkeye does but instead i build a a load of bombers and watch them blow things up, i am obsessed with explosions
Yeah bombers are over powered i would love to see a mod with realistic rescale and have proper weapons. Imagine a ywing swaud going for a sder jsut to be torn up by its multiple laser systems. also depending on the mod i also ussaly build a ssder asap.
I personally Take the time to divide my enemies attention to theyre flank while i sneak Kyle katarn/Mara in through the side and destroy the shield generator...This is effective as theyre attention and defense is split up and once the shields are down i call in a bombing run, This tactic is affective But any ANTI AIR TURRETS will stop this, Make sure you bring some back up to take care of those...the rebels are GREAT for this kind of blind siding attack.
And my space Tactic is, i send atleast two Nebulons/Victory ISD's to theyre mines while my Marauders/diamond cruisers to theyre base, Effective and will take them a bit to stop you.

well the Ultimate realims kinda does what you talking about.
also for land, i basically do the same thing for space, i defend and collect money, then when i have enough i build about 4 AT-ATs and Veers, along with AT-AAs to take out the enemy. hmmm for the rebels i kinda do what kalo does, but i use infiltrators a lot more.
When i'm playing rebels I use the red squadron/ ion cannon combo. I close the wings and fly close to the enemy space station, fire the planet ion cannon, then use the red squadron ability and take out the shields, after that I use the rebel squadron ability and weaken the space station some more. When the station is at level 2 I bring a rebel corvette and some bombers and fighters to help weaken the space station. I have other tatics but this will do for now.
