Any tip for Knights (Beta) map ??? :)

Postby King Engineer on Sat Apr 07, 2012 12:17 pm

Hey guys :)

I just started playing Knights map 1 v 1. It seems soooo interesting! The game play seems simple: Get the bonus, defeat the opponent lol But is there any specific strategy that really helps ?

For example, in classic map the basic strategy is Get Australia, or else SA, and then start from there.

Any strategy for Knights map ?? :)

thanks!

I'm in a game with flat rate 4 players and it looks like there is no end in sight --- we just keep knocking each other around --- no place to call home

Knights strategy.

Control the centre and it is easier to win. As this image shows, a knight in the centre has more options.Image

Playing flat/escalating or no spoils, the centre 4 squares are the key to winning. Even in games of more than one player. If you hold any of those 4, you have a better than even chance of winning the game.

Always reinforce from your back line and move your troops forward slowly. Mass attacks in non trench games do not work.

Be extra careful on where you place your troops, you can get lost very easily as the attacks are not normal.

Trench games, played a few and the best strategy is this, take 2 or each shield and just keep the opponent of them. If you go second, you need some more luck with the dice if your opponent does this, but a mass attack of all 16 blocks of troops can work to take 32 squares. But the luck of the dice gives you bad odds of doing this. A better way is to deploy your troops in a way as to be able to take out his when they move forward whilst still taking the same 6 shields.

Squares B3, B6, G3, G6 are the next most important as these can attack the shields directly.

I play it somewhat like waterloo. Try to leave as many 2's as I can. I do not necessarily always work the center but make sure I at least have stacks to pop the center.

I usually play this on esc though.

In esc 5+ players I just make 2 piles, taking 1's till about the 8th round.

Listen to nobunaga, he's been dating this map since it came out. I think I hear wedding bells!!

He is more than dating it. He is screwing it seven shades of Sunday.

I am actually not sure where I am at on points on this map tbh. I think probably not much over 0. :S Still learning it as I play it.

But for the esc 5+ man setting its a good map for me as I seem to be winning that one a lot.

These flat rate and no spoils games are turning into high round big strat. affairs. Not something I excel at really, but learning.

im exactly in the same situation, with exception that now we are reduced to 3 players...it looks a neverending game because it will be allways a 2vs1 in case of someones advantage.
That reminds me why i dont like flat rate games :they just can last forever if no one does anything really stupid or suicidal
