can u guys tell me everything related to delaying squads.............there advantages ,disadvantages and strategies pls i need a detailed one
Delaying squads is a tactic mainly used when in alliances but can be used in various ways.
It is used to match ETA time (Estimated Time of Arrival) against either your enemies or allies.
Say I am at an outpost, I am your ally and I am attacking a colony ETA 5 ticks and you want to join in from your colony and when you target the colony I am attacking it says your squads will get there ETA 3 so to join my squads on the attack you then delay your squads by 2 so now ETA is 3+2 which is 5 and now your squads will reach the colony same time as mine
You do the same against enemies if you want to
Obvious disadvantages is that you miscalculate or plans are changed which could affect you so becareful!
Delays are also used say when an alliance has planned an attack (current tick 190) leaving at tick 200 and you know you will not be online at that time then you can start attacking now at tick 190 but set a 10 tick delay so your squads will move at tick 200 with allies
Like I said, miscalculate and you could spoil everything xD
Also the delay tick can be used to fake activity, like say your going to sleep and it is war, you can launch squads at a random location and put a 24 tick delay so when opponents see squad movements they will think you are active xD
Well the above is just me, I used to fake activity and I remember I used to get msgs asking stuff like, don't you ever sleep xD
Well that is all I got, Good Luck
