Well its been a long time and there are a lot of unknown of articles out there... so i thought i might post a more updated version..

Since the games expansion pack and various patches have been released many articles are now outdated; so some of the older articles may not be present here.. anyhow onto the strategies!

Pity this forum has died as it has, we've gotten a nice treasure trove of info over the years. It could really help newer players...if this game got many.

I need something to hold me over untill AOM, I guess this will have to do, catch me on the zone as _Nazgul or Knights_Q2

I reckon Strat and Gen. Discussion should combine it would make things a lot easier. I mean look at some of the topics in Gen. Discussion and most of them are talking about Strategies anyway. Do it! Combine the two like AOKH!

I'd just like to thank you for this and the previous strategy FAQ thread. I am new to the game, having gotten it within the last couple months, and these strategy compilations have been enormously helpful, as have the strategy forum archives.

That is one reason why there should have been a Newbie list instead of many threads.

Hey Scythe,

It has been a while since I played SWCC, so I came back to recheck out all the helpfull hints that I used before as I am getting back into SWCC. I noticed that you have updated all of Arma's files, thanks for the hard work. Though, I seem to be having a problem with opening them. I am getting blank screens...

Skythe.

Do me a favor man and change all MattTheGreat_II to KoP or Knight of Pepsi.

Every time I see my old n00b name I cringe....

Anyways, I'm playing again on weekends, so I;ll try to help you out in here. I'm incredibly rusty, but should recover eventually.


KoP

How many people actually read this?

The links work for me.

Where do you guys play online? I tried to play on the zone but the SWGB link came up with the page for Tie-Fighter.

I dont know i dont play anymore to be honest :S But im still wise. Still If you can get into the general game; you should be alright. But play Random map! Start at Inter games, if u get thrashed goto rookie games and play there til u start thrashing them, then move onto inter etc.

Yes, indeed it has Now, if your new to the game, you have no clue otherwise of what you are doing, or you find yourself getting thrashed endlessly by people on msn game zone, i suggest you read The Basic Economy Strategy.

One you have had a nice read through that and tried it once or twice, read through The Short Guide from Going Rookie To Inter Parts 1 & Two.
Practice your booming, and get used to it, then absolutely study KoP's Guide to booming. The idea is for you to get the most amount of workers in the shortest amount of time possible, and have them all working, and as little amounts of them idle as you can. This means NO workers standing around.

Once you have read and practiced the things discussed in these guides vs medium or hard computer, i suggest you read the following guides:

Units and their counters In order to gain an understanding of what kills what,

This guide to rushing

The Advantages of having an expanded economy (in order to fully understand booming[/url]

and Ultimately read Arma's strategy guide.
This is a great guide, but remember parts to it are void, as that guide was written for the original game not the expansion.

Once you are done with them... hit The Zone and start whoopin some rookie butt!

Basically you'll wanna run through all the rush guides once you've played a few games and had a bit of experience on your hands. In fact i suggest you read every guide .

ULTIMATELY to really get better and understand ALL the jargon mentioned in this thread, GO TO
http://www.mrfixitonline.com/Library.asp?Action=LISTLIBRARY&hdr=&VolumeId=2507
and download yourself 5-10 good quality recorded games, and take a Gooooood look at them. This is the step which will really make you get better, and you will be able to watch these strategies in action. And you have no exuse, if you don't know how to work recorded games there's the Recorded games FAQ.

Have fun!

Clicked on the "counter list" out of curiosity. (edit, looks like it's from '03, oh well...)

I just wanted to add that cost for cost, heavy or advanced mounted troops are the best counter to jedi padawans/knights. Knights at their cheapest cost 100 food and 200 nova (250/250 to upgrade to knight). It takes 3 heavy mounted (100/100 to upgrade to heavy) to take out a knight (2 for padawan), 165 food and 60 nova, being the total cost.

Cost for cost, advanced mounted troopers are the best at taking out artillery, pummels, and assault mechs as well.

Also, didn't see Berserkers. For their speed and how cheap they are, best bet for counters are fighters and enh'd or adv'd at that as normal fighters won't take them out fast enough. Geonosians have an even larger damage bonus vs them. If you go ground, you can go with heavy groups of troops but, you'll only be able to defend with them. If you're not worried about resources, a few assault mechs will take out groups of berserkers no problem - if they're clumped together.

You can find me on steam: first_of_few

You can also find me at: www.aiscripters.com as 'Thegreatkazein' or 'Kazein'.
