HI guys can some one please explain the in's and out's of a lockdown.

Basically why does it not do what it says on the box so to speak..

How is it squads can escape a lock down? Put in place one tick earlier?

If I get a intel report saying.. You have locked down (target X) no squad or missiles can leave the target.

And and on the next tick I see their squad bailing out.. What am I missing in this process????

Could they have possibly delayed their squads before you managed to lock them down?

Yes, if you have squads on delay, they are not included in the lockdown. Same for missiles. Which is why it is always a good tactic to keep your army on delay when in the middle of a war, so as to avoid the lock down.

Are you serious?

Are they visible to the enemy?

I locked down the target right at the beginning of the tick and refreshed the game to see if any squads where on their way to assist near the end of the tick and nothing was showing.

Wow so what you telling me is if a run a delay of squad launch say for 3 ticks and cancel that every tick and reset none of my squads will ever be caught in a lockdown.. while I am online and playing..

You can't see other alliance squads on delay, only your own alliance :)

So long as you don't turn your squads in to a lockdown and you kept delaying it yes, you could just escaping lockdowns xD but that's a lot of activity, much easier to just build a new op and stack spy protection on it :)

Or just get locked down anyway, because we're lazy. xD
