Hi there, I haven't gotten a chance to play yet but I figured I would post this while I wait, I enjoy playing the tactical advance wars games and when I saw this it kinda seemed like an even better advanced wars. So I wanted to know if you can win with a infantry strategy, a mechanical strategy, or air strategy if you focus solely on them? Or do you have to be balanced among the three to win most games?

It's generally a good idea to use a good balance of different units, though winning using only Infantry units is definitely possible. It's been done before. :shock:

Win using only Infantry Units, and Only Ground Units.

Both would be good new badges.

Maybe also have one for , Win a match playing no cards.

if you're only going to use one unit, it would be fighters (planes), infantry, AA, or recon (jeeps)

these are the only units that can attack all other units, with any of them you could destroy your opponent's base.

with only infantry you could win with control points.

that would be an interesting match to see.

You'd run out of money so fast if you went with that kind of strat.

You want a little bit of everything. Here's my summary of every unit:
Infantry: Vital for capturing resource / control points -- lousy damage/armor
Recon: REQUIRED. Great vision/scouting, terrible damage/armor
Artillery: Great anti-ground, but no air damage. LONG range, but poor vision.
*artillery and recon are good together (long range + long vision = long range attacks)
AA (Anti-Air): REQUIRED. Good vision. Best by far against air, but not good against ground.
Light Tank: Great in packs, terrible on their own -- they're cheap, so buy 2 or 3 close together before you move em out
Heavy Tank: Rarely worth it, in my oppinion
Heli: Great anti-ground, but no air damage. Poor range, but amazingly good if not around an AA
Fighter: GREAT movement, attacks both air and ground decently. Good range as well.
*Fighter and Recon (and transport vehicles) move very quickly

Personal oppinion, but here's the importance of units for me:
infantry > AA > recon > artillery > light tank > heli > fighter > heavy tank

oooh, bubbles, you discount the fighter too soon, its like a recon with damage and armor that has IMMUNITY to certain units, anything can hit recon, both tanks and artillery (THE ground force) cant hit the fighter, neither can heli. the fighter is a PIVOTAL unit, wins fights all the time almost alone.

Heavy Tank is just a beast when you want to put the final nail in the coffin for the unfortunate victim (i.e. Me)

Trust me. Happens a lot. ;)

It always depends on opponnets units. I think it was Bubbles who had 3 artillery (one hero) without air support advancing on my base, so 2 helis were invaluable at that time :)
