Default i like usa :D but i'm too open to rushing :\

i played china only up until a couple of days ago, after which i decided to switch to usa, and i must say i like them a lot, maybe more than china.

what i like most about usa is their extremely good tanks, and of course their ability to easily be able to see the enemy. humvees are a good rush tool and an excellent anti-infantry unit (since usa lacks an equivalent of the dragon tank or toxin tractor in that department). their air power is good too, although because i'm so used to yr, i can't get used to using air power extensively.

the one thing i don't like about usa is how incredibly slow they are early game. maybe it's just because i'm not used to it, but china is so speedy at getting out tanks that i'm having trouble adapting.

so, does anyone have an bos or tips for usa early game?

well the reason that they are so slow early game is because of the 1200 bucks you are paying for a supply collector

build infantry w/ tanks...If you use infantry and tanks you should be able to get rid of any china rushes. Just build tanktroopers and use the little laser that they got.

In the early game, it's critical that the us get as many miners as possible without stopping the tank building.

Once you get that down (about 2-3 miners if you're capturing derricks or 3-4 miners early without derricks), usa will be alright early on.

Another critical thing is that never build a humvee then another humvee/crusader while building some rocket guys.

It;s important to get a fully loaded humvee right away to stop gatts. If you see em try troop crawler rushes, then it will just be ranger + flashbang. But at the start, when you only have 2 or 3 miners and no derricks, only build from one production center at a time (barx or wf, never both). Otherwise you will have a half-ass defense force and easy pickings for gatt harassment. Once you have that rocket humvee, you can make another (if they bring two gatts), or make a crusader. This crusader (s) afterwards will prevent any massed gatt attacks from wasting your humvees.

I dunno why you have such a big problem with gatts forsy...

Just use crusaders and Usa's scouting to stop it.. You just need to be aware...

I'd rather that my forces are not led around by a gatt which is faster and has more range If he decides to rush, I wanna make him pay for it.

Also, there's a limit to how many drones you can have up before those gatts come. You won't always see em, and they only need about 5 seconds to kill your miner.

Not if you move that miner as soon as you see it.. Chinooks has crazy fog revealing.. If you control your tanks right a gatt can't get past it.. Harder to stop a humvee from squishing your workers as gla than saving a chinook as usa anyways...

So a gatt makes the chinook run away, china now has control of the game. The crusader will not be able to catch the gatt.

It can continue to attack different spots.

use a humvee with the drone as fodder imo, seems to work ok for me, and gatts have trouble re-aiming their turrets after they're ordered to move.

"Why you play gla?"

does this mean "why do you play as GLA" or "Why, do you play as GLA?"

punctuate, n00b .

and to answer both questions...because GLA owns all, and...yes, I do play as GLA.
