How do I not die on the Fortress map?

★★★★ Guide

This map is seriously annoying. It is soooo difficult to disturb the economy of the double harvester players, since the distance is so freaking huge.

 

Any hints for me? Or maybe a link to a good replay?

I don't know. This map is hard. Lose a lot.

Sorry I'm late, but perhaps I can give you some tips for next time.

Obviously you hit the nail on the head. I too thought I could pressure their harvs enough to pull a win, and for the most part, I could. But I did drop a game to someone who just out-eco'd me.

So my conclusion is the same as yours. If you can't beat em, join em. Make a tech deck of your own and fight fire with fire. It's pretty much your best bet unless you wanna try something crazy like a jjt/mohawk/banshee rush, but all of those are prone to dropping games from a single bad decision or bad luck and when you wanna go 10-0 that is usually a bad bet. So pick your tech flavour of choice and slam those double harv's.

I managed 6/10 with my non-tech deck... could be better, but for a map that heavily favors Tech decks, I think I did not do too bad.

 

Going tech myself... eh. I'd rather not. But maybe I will, if there is again an event with just one map like that.

I've seen an interesting double-harv non-tech variation which is you go double harv with a no tech, and use the extra income to afford more tanks and your more expensive units. When you get rich enough you simply move one of the harvs onto a back pad and run off the other harv. Could give it a shot.

More income, more ion cannons

Also if you bring inferno and orca bomber you can safely go double harv

I think this map is interesting to see more variation on gameplay and squad, rather than usual rush and pressure.

 

I watched a few high rank champion players replay and they all have different squad. Some have no tech unit but expensive air force, some have only 1 tech unit (avatar), some have 2-3. 

 

This event make you think and change how you play. It is interesting to match with players with all different squad.

 

(But too bad you need to pay 500 dia for another 10 matches)

I guess it will be good if you can choose to pay 500 dias or coins to retry.

pay 500 dias: rewards reset on retry

pay 500 coins: rewards don't reset on retry

 

Hope it's coming soon!

Sounds like a good idea to me.
