You never have enough metal on C2C, so every unit has to count. You canīt afford sending Crusaders into a certain death, you gotta repair and move slowly.

Or, you can skip fancy UC and hope to get away with it. It just might make the game more fun to watch!

This game doesnīt look very promising at first. BF is ARM and goes air, Diablo picked CORE and try vehicle. After 2 minutes BF bombs Diablo back to stonage, taking out his lab, AA, energy, metal... It looks like an easy win for ARM.

But, Diablo hangs on and hit the sea. Soon the water is filled with skeeters, roaming the coasts where they shoot down bombers (Offscreen is overrated) and take out mexxes close to the shore.

BF tries to go sea, but Diablo donīt like the company and force BF back up on land. While Diablo keeps growing in the water, BF builds Adv K-bot instead. Whatīs the best way to use Pelicans? Hmmm,how about sending them STRAIGHT INTO Diabloīs Crusaders? Yeah!(Did I mention UC was overrated?). Diablo enjoys the metal and pumps out more ships.

BF has to rethink his strategy. No metal, very few pels left. Hmm. Diablo comes to the rescue and sends his ships STRAIGHT INTO BFīs defenses! (Just say NO to UC) Hooray, thinks BF when he sees the 4k metal or so outside his coastline.

And thatīs how the game is played. Whoever has the upper hand attack without hesitation, send everything to a certain death, leave wreckage all over the place, fall back, get hit by a similar counterattack, reclaim, build up again attack once more, etc. Back and forth.

Itīs a great game. Fast and agressive, sloppy and careless but never boring or predictable. UC really is overrated - attack at all times, at any cost! (At least if you plan on sending the game to TADRS)
