Forum thread for tactics


#21

Slight touch of help for uploading a photo, I had a tactics screenshotted and explained yet the upload photo button doesn’t work.


#22

It doesn’t work on the app. You can go to the website at forum.openwar.org, which works much better anyways. If that doesn’t work you can upload them to imgur and link them in.

@Cloak

To defend against cavalry:

I use boxes to defend cav charges. When you defend, don’t target the cav or your troops will follow and get disorganized. Instead move your troops on routes that intercept the cav. You can figure out where the attack will come based on the holes in your own defense.

If the cav run straight through a unit they don’t deal all that much damage. If they charge through a couple spears or glaves they take more damage. Keep your units close and the opponent will just shred their own cav and do little damage. Try not to bunch though or the enemy can take advantage of that with ranged units.

Practice cav charges yourself and you will find ways to counter it.

Alright, thanks for the pointers, I definitely will practice.


#25

Diamond form worked surprisingly well for me, and it quickly broke three cav units morale.


#26

I used sandbox to discover that a cave unit will flee really fast if it charges through one spear, one glave, and is being attacked by a samurai.


#27

I use an arrangement like this a lot. In this game I was too aggressive with the cav and the player quit. Sometimes it is best to let the opponent get set up first if you want a better game.


#28

Sounds Interesting.


#29

Since my account won’t sign in on webpage oddly enough, would someone like to help me tweak a new tactic? I wanted to show but obviously can’t right now lol


#30

If you are using a computer on samuraiwars.net you need to use Firefox.


#31

Android platform, still the same thing for that as well?


#32

huh?


#33

YOu should be able to sign into your forum account on Samuraiwars.net if you use firefox. I like using the computer because it is way easier to aim troops.


#34

Actually it works on chrome now too.


#36

If all else, charge. So I was playing against a smart opponent. He really liked to sneak his cav behind my lines to punish my skirmishers. Luckily I managed to take the middle high ground. Eventually I realized that he had slow reaction time. So, I did the most successful banzai charge, catching him completely off guard. Morale of the story, go home or win big.


#37


he calls that a tactic


#38

He’s a coward runner alway save a unit of cavalry or archers and runs like a bitch for hours


#39

And when people get tired of chasing him for hours and quit battle then he calls himself great :joy:


#40

For real, I don’t believe that he is


#41

Flick you want to post the other two screenshots when I chased you down and annihilated you!? Why don’t you tell the whole story!? Or shall I!?
