Damage units are also quite good for squashing newbies armies for example:

1 damage anti inf tank can destroy 12 of the standard unit without dying therefore making it quite easy to gain exp and this allows you to get some very powerful damage units with 3 or 4 range.

They an kill up to 13 concussive armor inf without dying, 14 if they die as well.

@minpk If you are participating in battles that last 3 rounds or more than using damage is the least of your worries since you are doing something horribly wrong.



i understand that i shouldn't use damage (i'm not stupid) , but it doesn't mean damage isn't good at fighting close battles...

jeez..

You are missing the point though, if you fight close battles you need to reevaluate your strategy. For damage to surpass the damage output of range the battle must last at least 3 rounds. 2 is the maximum number of rounds you want but obviously 1 round is best. The only time 3 rounds is okay is when you have squads with range 5.

damage is imp till tick 100 4 conquering noobs.. But don't make too much damage.. switch 2 range asap..
Then damage units can be used as spam or anti spam to protect ur ops n mines.. Other than that no use of damage :lol:

damage is perfect at the start of the game where everyone has about the same units, first 100 ticks to be exact. Then it gets less important...

Though, I heard in solo eras and eras where the alliance limit is low, 2 or 3 per alliances, damage are actually very good...


And also they are usefull in big battles which last for many rounds

NO! If you are entering a battle with many rounds you are doing something wrong! Damage units are only good for spams.


KD sometimes you cant avoid such battles and u have to enter that time adding a few damage squads comes handy i meant that

Not sure how you mean this but you should not mix damage with range. Say you have 9 armor 6 damage and 15 range, you have just cut the amount of damage you do in the first round which is obviously bad. If you possibly mean that you should use damage in place of armor units then you are reducing the amount of hp buffering your range units not to mention the fact that you will be losing more units that are more expensive than armor.

(Don't use blue text, that is reserved for Mods iirc)

I don't understand why some (new) people are so stubborn. Like Korrupt has stated many times; Range>Damage, because you want to fight 1 round battles.

(new) people are so stubborn because after u invested tons of res into ur dmg based army (lured by sim results that show that in perfectly balanced fights dmg do quite good) its hard to admit that u were a fool

dmg do good only in perfectly balanced battles,witch is rarely the case in real game situations
those that play with the sim looking for a good setup don't realize that

if to this u also add the fact that once poisoned/nuked dmg is dead meat in front of ranged than here u are :

dmg is useless
