NERF all the units!
Well, now that the mandatory words are out
I've got a question.
So far, I've played 4 online games and won 2. I really enjoy this game. Haven't encountered a spam tactic yet thankfully. And love the tactics and strategies involved. And the coop games are a lot of fun as well! (2 vs 2)
Today I played a 2 vs 2 2000 pts, hells highway as PACT. We were on the winning side by 200 almost all game and it was fun. The opponents didn't seem to do much (made me wonder the entire game
) until they showed up with 4 abrams (can't remember the type) and 4 challengers (can't remember the type).
I had 5 T72's, 4 T64's and some random T62's with 2 attack choppers (first tier) that can also transport stuff
But couldn't get a dent on 'm. I was positioned in a hedgerow and even called in Arty on those 8 tanks. Think I only killed one.
Cost us the game. I retreated as soon as I lost most of my T72's, called in some more and tried again from the right flank. Challengers positioned there in the mean time so I lost the game because of that rush/attack.
What is the right way of attacking higher tier units (in this situation)? Retreat and set up a multi flank ambush? Get some tank destroyers? Let them roll in to ATGM teams? I was hoping I could at least get 2 or even 3 out of the 8 tanks. I'm not crying OP here, just want to know what would have been a nice way. I glanced over my allies flank and it didn't seem he had anything to take care of those tanks so I chose to counter attack.
