There are so many strategy games for both on line and for game consoles. In today's games, there isn't a need to set the setting of the strategy games for half an hour as the programmers had already figured out what actually the gamer needs and had already been programmed into the game.
Most of the strategy games I played needed lots of planning and speed to play well in the strategy games. These games can be those defense games where you need to build towers at strategic areas or points to fight off an invasion effectively or if you are those kind of offensive players, you can be the one building units to crush the computer's defense.
There is a saying:" Attack is my defense, defense is my attack". It really depends on how you want to play it.
6 Simple Strategy Techniques For Playing Strategy Games
1) Knowing in depth of the different kinds of units or races in the game. Normally it isn't going to be more than 10.
2) Follow the basic rules of the strategy game. Some basics strategies are: Use the melee fighters upfront in the front lines as "meat shield" while the ranged soldiers stand behind the melee fighters to support them.
3) When you have gained enough money, do plan some of it for upgrades of your soldiers, towers etc... Normally starting of the game, it can be quite hard to plan but plan out a strategy of your own.
4) Pick up some air units to support your ground troops. It is a must! Next go get a good siege weapon to destroy building more effectively and faster. Siege weapons are a double edged weapon where it can be used for base defense too. By understanding what does what, you will be in a better position to really deploy them well and avoid stupid mistakes.
5) Pay attention to powered attacks too. It is normally in the form of artillery strike with a huge amount of ground troops charging at you, distracting you and using the siege weapons clearing out your base buildings. Use your air units to flank the siege weapons, counter attack them and surprise your enemy.
6) Last tip is to make sure that you don't save necessary money that is not necessary. This is a common mistake that new gamers make. There is no point in saving so much money in the game and lose in the end and to prove nothing. But if you are going to build massive or very grand, then just do it. Strike a good balance point between having some savings for defense when needed. You will have to learn this in regards to each specific game.
