I've become very attached to Rebel Snowspeeders and Bombers. A big group of bombers will level any base....no matter how well defended!!!

Yes, a large group of bombers, especially if escorted properly with a nice mix of fighters and snow speeders, can kick some serious butt. The one time the computer-controlled wookiees came at me with major air power (while I was the TF) I got creamed... Good thing the computer usually neglects air power

Smile it's all about fun . . .

i am the 2nd one on this mighty thread to say this, but i really enjoy the rebel speeders. They are quite weak, and . . . well, they are easy fodder for anything with a rocket, but they look cool, and they're fun to move around, they're fairly fast, and they are really handy protection, esp if playing against those nasty AT-AT's.
kind of funny - given the support for the AT-AT's - that the lowly speeder makes easy mincemeat out of them,
regards all.


if dysfunction is our function, then i must be some sort of genius

My favorite to look at would be the AT ATs. I love the way it looks when 10 of them are tramping toward the enemy base. I rather wish they had a melee attack. I'm sure there are game balance reasons why they don't but the fearsome thing about them in the movie was with their enormous size they would step on anything that got in the way. It evokes primal fears of dinosaurs and the like.

I can't say I have a favorite unit to use in the game though. I guess if I were to pick one I'd say cannons. If you have a whole bunch of cannons (defended with some anti-air and repeater troops) whatever you click on will eventually be destroyed. It takes awhile to pack and unpack, but usually I've got nothing but time.

You can beat the enemy with any properly organized group of units though... well... except anti-air troopers. I'd say they're my least favorite unit. I usually don't build them.

I love using them, just have some backup and they can work wonders...

i would have to sayy the a group of 3 AT-ATs with 30 Repeeater troopers and 2 AT-STs and 10 Advanced Fighters. Mainly because of its abilit to destroy everything and is able to counter almost any weekness exept agaisnt waves of Destroyers Droids and Jedi Masters but in my mind i Love the Combination.



makes the enemy

I've changed my favorite unit to the Trooper...they are so awesome-looking in massed groups...tons of blasterfire going off at once looks awesome!

I have to say that nothing beats a group of jet-pack upgraded Berserkers. They may not be the strongest, but they sure look cool ripping through troopers, mechs, and buildings. Naboo Advanced Cruisers aren't bad either.

HHD of course. Decent move, nice damage, and numerous upgrades. Course, they'd be my favorite unit even if they weren't that good (I just love them in the movies...)

Another good combo is a couple of Fambaas, 3 or 4 medics, and a bunch of gungan ships. I love the ability of the frigates to duck out of the way and since the medics can heal the ships... (It actually works fairly well with the gungan fighters too)

Republic troopers, because they get every trooper upgrade, including their civ-specifc Kaminoan Cloners, which churns out Clone Troopers extremely fast.

Confederacy troopers, because they also benefit from nearly every trooper upgrade, including their civ-specific Droid Upgrades, which gives their troopers a much higher attack (and I think range too).

Pummels, of any civilization. A dozen or so of these units (assuming you give them a little support) can wipe out an entire civilization.

Jedi Masters, because their ability to convert nearly anything very quickly (assuming you researched the right technologies) is very useful. Their powerful attack and speed are also both pluses. However, Jedi Masters are the only type I like. Padawans are next to useless, and Knights can't convert as much as Masters.

GE mechs, Reb air, TF HDDs, Repub heavy arti (AC, can) and Jedi.

GE mechs are the best of their class.

Reb air are best of their class.

TF HDDs....are best anti-foot unit there is. Only two units other then Jedi masters give them chase (Wook bersk, Naboo Crusad)

Repub Jedi have the most upgrades and heavy arti move the fastest.


Also all have a high coolness look.
