View Full Version : Wall building

It might actually be worth building a wall in battlegrounds, 'cos then stealth units can't get in :)

it looks like walls will be a bit less effective in GB anyways, with air-units and all..

No point wasting time in building wall coz air units will still hammer you'r base
07-30-2001, 09:06 PM
Not unless you build Air Defenses.

Not neceseraly true you could blow open the wall with you'r air units and march in with a couple of at-at's and hammer said base

Then that is called good strategy...

Though if you built a shield generator (will we get these?) to block out the aircraft then u base safe till the enemy sends in a whole bunch of bombers to destroy the shield!!;)

I stick to my point

no doubt he'll stick to his.
i like GB already because of stuff like air-units, shields etc.
it's a whole new ballgame.
finding a fave civ will be very fun indeed.

I think that the shield just inceases the HP of the things insidee, rather than blocking things out. As for walls, i never used them much anyways, i prefer defenses that fight back. :D

Me too. I was just saying with a wall jedi with stealth mode could not get into your town and 1) explore, find weaknesses 2) Destroy power core etc.

yeah, those sneaky things are generally just annoying.
better be overrun with brute force than sabotaged from the inside out...
Hmmmm sabotage that sounds good
But don't you think the jedi's will be available only in later "Ages"?

If they can sabotage in the first place. We don't know if teh ycan destroy buildings like a tanya. :D

i used to think that was lame in RA2. if you couldn't get to a Tanja in time, she'd blow up half your base.

Those walls are little cover only! u have to build lots of guard towers behing the wall!
But SOME heavy gun can destroy walls in 1 min!!

Lucasarts Probably Change stupid things like that anyway how do you know the gard tower won't go down at the same ime?:laughing: explode

only with Death Stars, my friend... only with Death Stars.

what about an infantry rush. wall protect buildings inside while you prepare for a battle when they blast the wall to pieces or a bobardment of bombers/fighters

All teh technology in the universe and the best they can coime up with are walls? :D
Why not have like a shield type wall, rather than concrete or duracrete or whatever. You know, like a light barrier wall. That would be alot cooler.

you could, but it would make for a very wierd looking base. this way you really have the feel of digging yourself in and attacking forest-like structures.
