I've set up several units on a server and I'm trying to protect my Tanks with the ones in front. Do the Armor units block attack on all units or do they simply protect the units behind it?

Armor blocks all units :) until they die of course.

armor units only protect the one with the same chassis...

if u put armor concussive tank, it will protect all kind of tank, except armor tank, ofc...

but if u put armor infantry, they won't protect ur tanks... they will only protect the infantry units...

Its best to have a 10/20 ratio (10 armor) and a extra armor squad every 5 squads or something, also Armor protects its chassis, for example armor inf protects range inf.

Hope I helped :D

the 1 : 2 or 3 : 7 ratio between armor and range is widely accepted as the best build. However depends on playstyle, some ppl will have differences in their builds. So if possible, try to find out ur best playstyle and use the build that suit u the best.

The pro build doesn't mean anything anymore. Or at least it shouldn't. Was the update for damage units in vain? Damage units are ok too use now. Don't take my word for it. Try these battles on the sim.

Infantry - 20 range and 10 armor vs. 10 armor, 10 damage, and 10 range.

Tanks - 7 range and 3 armor vs. 3 armor, 3 damage and 4 range.



For the most accurate results use the same weapons for both.

the problem is that u don't always do 1 vs 1. I don't dig more about this problem. I respect ur choice of making damage units, however, I do believe that try and kill in 1 round is better than waiting till the 3rd turn to make difference. By then ur damage units have all been killed...

Honestly I don't care how many rounds a battle lasts as long as I win. Winning is the essential part and damage units will get you there. And I'm just saying, why not build damage units if the devs went through the trouble of making them stronger in hopes of increasing their popularity?

it's for the ones who think putting damage in squads is good like u, LC or Vault,... However, some ppl believe that kill in one round, at most 2 round, is the best like me will not use damage units. That's why I said it's completely depends on ur playstyle.
