Spread your troops out so it's harder to be eliminated. They will try to attack through Landeplatz A or B (which each have 14 neutral) to Hubschrauber A or B (which each have 60 neutral) in order to bombard your parachutes (Casey, Jones, Mills, etc). Once they are able to do that, they will also take AA and bombard the two locations next to the parachutes from there (C1, C2, etc). So, if you aren't in position to be the one doing that, you need to spread a couple of big stacks around to make it harder to be eliminated.

On 1v1, would manual make a big difference in gameplay? Would you still go for the same areas (ie. still going for the south-east corner)

I think that manual would make a difference. Especially if you're playing against someone who doesn't know the map well. It give you a lot more options to start from quickly.

So how would you play it if it were manual then? I always play this map on manual and always go for the white area and try to hold it, building stacks and bombarding through AA. Then I go for the objectives. I would like to know if there's a flaw in this strategy if playing manual and I have been winning through sheer luck :P Thanks in advance.

What white area do you mean?

I think that there are probably a couple of ways you could play it... Really 1v1 is a bit different than other game styles. That's especially true if it's unlimited fortifications.. But, if it's chained and not trench, I think you can try your way of bombarding from AA or get a bonus in one of the top regions. I would prefer to not go through AA myself unless it's unlimited and you can build a giant stack very quickly before going.

By white area I meant Das Dorf. I usually play 1v1 unlimited forts no trench. And when I do, I rarely go for the top 2 bonuses; like I said I focus on Das Dorf. What do you think?

Yes, with unlimited I think that is one of the best strategies. You can build a very large stack and it takes away 8 deploys from your opponent.

I would focus on DDs just in trench, in no trench manual I go for a top bonus depending on the drop and the read i have on my oponent.

Oh ok thanks. But in trench we should mostly ignore the troopers right? Since we can't get the troops out due to the nuetral reset.

you can advance through a neutral reset in trench. I would say DS bonus may sometimes be easier to get than DD bonus but both are the right move to make strategy wise in a trench 1 v 1 game.

Ah ok thanks. I think I'll try both dropping my stack in manual in Das Schloss and splitting them between the two to see how it goes. All along I've been dropping on the troopers and it's been going pretty well until the last 2 or so games. The opponent would drop his 24 on the castle and would go first. So he takes the bonus the first round and reduces my region count to below 12. I try to get all the autodeploys by the first turn and don't break out. So round 2 now and the opponent would just stack (with his Das Schloss bonus) on one of the autodeploy regions (ie. C1, C2, J1, J2, etc.) and when I break out to hit and fort troops from my autodeploys, he would come up next turn and whittle my stack down. And because he already has the +7 bonus, he will win eventually cuz he has the same number of autodeploy regions as me and I can't get to AA quickly enough to bombard them. So these games have caused me to reconsider my strategy... I'll try a few and see which ones fit best :)

that"s why you'd rather have a bonus on round 1 too. deploying on the Ks for example. deploying all your troops behind platz D is the most common strategy. food for thought.
