It's gotta be Hackers.
You can scatter them about your base or hide them in trees etc. to protect them. Anyone who groups Hackers together is pretty stoopid as they are easily killed by any area effect weapon or a quick Rebel Ambush!
If they come under threat just move them! Hey, try moving your Supply Drop Zone or Black Market as my MiGs rush in!! :lol:
quite right, that is true... very true.. but i got a question too... how you gonna run when i drop in snipers?
the hackers would be better if
1) they we stealth when hacking not when disabling 2) they could hack when in vechicles so you can constantly move them to avoid attacks.
other wise :smack:
where as usa's supply drop zone doesnt get attacked because
1) you can defend it 2)the rebel ambush cant destroy much .

First: Drop in Snipers?? How does that work then?
Second: Pathfinders will struggle to get into any base due to Gattling Cannons guarding the perimeter.
Third: Place an empty Troopcrawler near your Hackers for two reasons. 1. It detects stealthed units. 2. Hackers can be garrisoned safely inside. 3. You can run them pesky Snipers over with it! :lol:
You can defend Supply Drop Zones but a determined player will see to it that it gets wasted. Or Black Lotus can capture the thing.
I'm not sure if the planes which drop the crates can be shot down before they drop. I'll have to look into this.... I think they come in from nearest edge of screen so it's unlikely.
But but but but!!! Power required is 4! No Fusion Reactors = No supplies.
you can shoot down the plane but its highly unlikely because you would need some sorta stealth-anti-air-heavy-missile-launcher and we dont.
1. drop snipers means drop them off by choppers (and bomb your base defences OR power plants first)
2. troop crawler big wow... didnt i mention? few planes have tanks in them in otherwords... bye bye hackers bye bye troop crawler
3. and i can get past your perimeter defences - Simply bomb them or bomb power plants or even just sneak in ... by distracting ur guns... send in a tank or summat so ur guns shoot it and fly over the defences LOL

HACKERS AND BLACK LOTUS ARE THE BEST. A lot of people use them to have monbey but For me the best use is a troop carwler in the other base and hack all the buildings. It really help you to destroy your oponent quickly
what u gonna do when enemy has
1. defences 2. snipers or kell or burton 3. a stealth detecting unit...
if u sent black lotus to my base i would have a stealth detecting vehicle detect it or defences detect it and before it got to my base have burton 8 snipers and 9tomahawks attack it
its called a F L A N K

Hey i havn't been here in a while, thought i might drop a post. :D
GLA is the best for me, i alwaysp play in teamwork (2vs2 3vs3 or 4vs4), cause it's THEN GLA rules suprime.
While the other two/three allies are batteling opposing forces GLA can sweep behind the battle verry quickly and do some massive damige. You just have to avoid the Migs or Commanche's for a little while (or send backup quad cannons ALOT). 5 á 6 buggies can distroy an entire army if done right. Jarmen Kell supporting them it's a piece of cake, taking a few peasant in a tech truck speeding in after the battle and taking over enemy (overlords) tanks or artillerie (although they are mostly to slow).
I mostly rely on my buggies and Jarmen Kell, and build The base defence line for all players (stinger pots) though the entire battlefield (if i have the cash) and have peasants and Tunnel Networks all over the map with light defence (cause you can pop up 8 buggies and 5 quad cannons instantly).
Also i build alot of Demo pots, they can do massive damige in the right places (luring enemy troops). So i gues i'm no real threat to kill an entire base, but i can be a pain in the ass for everybody (enemy) :rock: and that's what GLA are best in!
It takes SO much micromangement but when the Victory bell rings then it's quite satisfing :smokin:
PS: There are alot of tactics for GLA from angry mobs to scorpion tanks. Still i find the Scud launcher.
Ps2: GLA CAN win in small maps 1on1 but I always build alot before I get into the action.
