How in the star wars galaxy do you win land battles?

Um, well, here is the situation I am in.
I have no problem with space battles, they are dead easy. BUT those land battles, how on earth can you possibly win? Every time I assualt i loose all my units in 5 mins and then I have to retreat. Or if I defend they just seem to keep coming and coming. Any advice anyone?


I just LOOOOOOOOOVE star wars!

me when playing i hit fast forward and get as many troops as the point will let me. for the empire i go depending on how many i can 1-2 stormtroopers, 1-2 walkers, 1-2 scouts and the rest maulers if i can. with the rebels 2-3 normal troops, 1-2 plex troops, 1 t2-b or t4-b whatever i have at the time. now i go the whole map before going to the enemies base, and remember to use bombing runs only when you absolutely need them not to be wasteful. if your still having problems try lowering your difficulty level it does help, good luck and welcome to lucas forums

Tactics. Use which units go good together, like the great Obi-wan+much infantry (rocks HARD). Also, Revan is right on most points there. Remember, it isn't just a huge charge, keep some units a CP's and keep your force together. Also recognize when turrets are going toi be invaluble and then go for them. You'll get better.

ok i dont call anyone noobish (unless im playin battlefront 2 and strt pwning (which is every time) then i just lose cobtrol of myself) anyway you didnt mention if you every land reinforments or not press the r button to get additionel forces. here i have this in my copy paste from another tread ill put in startiges.

heres some good ones i use.

rebels: land all spedders except for 1 infantry plantoon and a hero. have one or to speeders protect the infantry as they take another base for more speeders. have all the other speeder go under the enemy shield and take it out. watch out 4 anti airs!!! after the shield is down now you can use artillary or just plain force on the rest of the buildins. go to the barracks and facrtorys and use speeders so no one can shoot u. i did this on coruscant and i won without a casualty i think. ok maybe one.
stratagy 2: brinf in chewy. and two tank squads. have chewy take over a tank (prefferably tie maller) and have him join with your tanks. give han a squad to follow the tanks and you merly have the planet. get in trouble? switch you t4s to missle mode.

empire: with the empire, you just wanna over do it. erly in the game? put out 9 atst squard and darth vader. there, you got so many atst you cant fit them all on a regular sized screen. go in and take everything out. if you run into large amounts of plex soilders, vaders fore push will do the job.

2: later in the game put down as many at ats as you can and the emporer (and darth vader, if you really must) now if you see speeders try to take them to ure side with force corrupt. also if u see alot of plexs. (OR IF YOU USE VADER FORCE PUSH.) also every chance you get, make sure to drop as many stromtroopers as possible. (put them in the front with your hero(s)) you got it.

heres a good one. for quick land ones. get jades to take over a base and have some atst or mallers defending her. one a squad comes have the tanks hold fire. over take the squad infantry and have the guards take out the tanks (if any) now send the infanty back to their base to do some damage! later more will come back and do it agian. if any of her gaurds go down replace them. while jades s having fun up there fett or vader can be having fun down there... with a squard of stormys and tanks that is. try to get vader/fett and there legion to arive at the rebel base the same time as your posseded rebels.

I keep all my ground troops on the run since they seem to be the main target of the enemy, while keeping them on the run i send MPTL's to deal with the enemy infantry, i send the tanks (I can't remeber their names at the moment) to deal with AT-AT's. and I let my Turbolaser turrents take care of the light vehicles.

Well, I group my men together, with the heavy weapons like the AT-AT in the lead. I'd deploy the stormtroopers and begin an attack sweep throughout the entire level. If I run into the annyoing artillery rockets, I would have scout bikes on the flanks to handle them with their explosives. I would keep the formation throughout the level and crush everything that comes near!!! I also build turrets everywhere I can to cover my advance.


you very much

here is my strategy:
1.i send darth vader to keep obiwan in one place while i have bombers come in or i attack obiwan with spma-t's during the battle
2. i use bombing runs to weaken attack forces when retreating
3.keep ataa near atat (1-2 atat need 1 ataa; 3-5 atat need 3 ataa; 6+ atat need 4+ataa)
4. use atat to transport troops to a reinforcement point then deploy stormy's
5.NEVER have an atat alone in a weak force cause chewie can get u in deep trouble if he takes over the atat
6.always try to defend what u have taken on the field (even if you HAVE to use turrets)
7. spma-t's work well when behind a shield or being defended behind a force (do not use for an assult force)
8. use scout troopers like what they were meant for: to SCOUT

and those are my imperial pointers
P.S. use my tactics with other tactics because these alone do not help you win
