I know this is coming too late, man, but in general, it's good to keep a sizable portion of troops on your shuttles. You need to watch out for players taking Helium bonuses.
Strategy depends in large part on the settings for your game. Taking a bonus can be handy if it's a team game, but when I played the map, I focused on eliminating the other player.
