I'm pleased to announce a new strategy called "Counter-Insurgency" is now available for a limited time!

Counter-Insurgency turns air support units (i.e. sentries) into, essentially, predator drones. The strategy also gives you extra protection against Insurrection. Here's a breakdown of exactly what Counter-Insurgency gives you:

All units get:
+2 defense against militia, marines, submarines, stealth planes, sentries
-1 defense against tanks, destroyers, bombers, infantry
+1 view range

Sentry Planes get:
+4 attack (making a total attack of 5)
+5 critical chance
+20 view range
-230 cost

Infantry gets:
-10 cost

Militia gets:
-1 range

Marines, Submarines, Stealth get:
-1 attack
+20 cost
-1 defense when attacked by sentries

To get the most out of Counter-Insurgency, you need to have the Air Support upgrade.

Counter-Insurgency will be available for 1 month, until March 18, 2019. So give it a try!

EDIT: extending CI for 1 more week until March 25, 2019.




Since Insurrection will remain available until March 6, this gives you 2 weeks to try Insurrection vs. Counter-Insurgency, if you want to.

A reminder to scenario players -- if you are concerned about strategies effecting the balance of your scenario, don't forget there is a "disable strategies" option you can use when starting a new game.

As always, please post your feedback about Counter-Insurgency and any if needed adjustments can be made along the way.

Cheers!

No

useless strat.

Just tested it. It is essentialy blitz vs anything but gw and ins, with the -1 defence to tanks, destroyers, bombers, infantry.

You have to be certain your opponents will be using ins or gw to use it, which is hard.

120 cost for 5 attack units, gl expanding...

It's not even a massive counter to Insurgency, with its high cost and low attack.

overall 0/10.

full support

edit: I think sentries should only get +3 attack since theres no range nerf for them in this idea (range is quite op indeed), and should get +1 attack against stealth



Blah 5 attack. It needed 6, sultan. You'll see once you actually play it.

Just for the record, I am against the addition of this strategy. Rock/paper/scissors strategy setups are bad for the game. It's bad enough that we have ds and blitz. We don't want more of these imbalances. It dumbs down the game to just picking the right counterstrat to win. Besides the strategies that this is designed to counter arent even that strong in the current meta.

But if we are going to be stuck with it.

-1 defence against tanks, destroyers, bombers, infantry


Remove that nerf from the strategy. It makes it redundant.

So it's a blitz like oriented strat used to counter ONLY GW and INS. Also If you need attack you have tanks Sentry planes are only to hunt shealts. If you want this to be a viable strat disable The Deff nerf or this strat Will be quite useless this strat needs to be playable without using sentry planes vs non stealth oriented. That's my opinión based only in numbers and in the balance we have since in a nub scenario player.

Imagine if the current relentless attack never existed as a strat and was just added today. Idiots like you would cry that it's an idiotic new strategy.

This is another infantry strat by reducing infantry cost by 10 and giving it 8 defence against Marines and Militia. Another one-unit type spam strategy. Except that it's worse since it wants to follow a rock-scissor-paper principle. What that really does is make your success dependent from luck. It fails to give sentry planes an unique role.

My opinion about this strategy after some tests, i find it based only on one thing, it is counter to the strategies that rely on the marines and militia like (GW,MoS and ins..), as we already know that these strategies is rarely used because it needs some specific conditions, add a new counter strategy against those stra is...
Otherwise, it can be used against other strategies but you must always take the offensive role, and for that this stratgey needs more offensive power like 6/7 for Sentry Plane, but it also has a negative side, that will make it more powerful with the high range of Sentry Plane
The bottom line is, it's good to see some new additions to the game, but after INS there is no point to add more new strategies rn, because we already have enough stra for each unit, and what we really need is some new units as laochra said, so we can make new strategies based on it, I know it will be difficult to add a new unit and find a balance between it and the existing units, but i'm afraid to say, without that it seems as if we go in circles.

stop being such a tightass seriously, I peronsally do not like these new strats but players like you cannot be satisfied with anything. >have admins that do nothing >proceeds to bitch and complain >has admin that makes TEMPORARY update just to see how players feel about it >gonna bitch and complain
Honestly, people are getting way more overzealous over these new strats that are temporary than they did when Ivan and amok changed the already existing strats like IF, RA, etc permanently.
