Re: Supreme Commander 2 Tips FAQ Help Tricks Hints Cheat Codes Strategy Guide
The biggest thing about this game is in two parts:
1) Start up is ESSENTIAL. Weakening your economy or spending too many resources towards structures will cost you dearly in the future. Avoid crippling your economy off the start as it will slow your build up process. Also, try to find the perfect blend between defense and building. Air units are excellent when set on patrols around your base.
2) DO NOT OVER EXTEND YOUR REACH! Building a base too far or moving your units too far, etc etc, will leave you open to an attack. I have seen many players fall because they sent their acu too far away from their base, or they spread their units, defense structures, and defenses too far apart. Be careful, be wise, and trust your judgement.
