I end up choosing the Nuke general for china because I like building 20 nuclear missile silos and blowing everybody up. But I'm wondering if there is a better general out there.
Stealth > To in some people (i.e. mine)'s opinion, but really, there the top 3. I reckon GLA is the worst no matter what. My preferences are 1. Laser General(Has the best defenses)2. Nuke General3. Tank or Air Force General(I love those emperors and laser point defenses for those planes)But in the end I reckon its just personal opinion.
Two players of equal level, one playing USAF and one playing vanilla China, the USAF will win 19/20. I tink it is personal preference, because in my opinion the best general is what ever the hell I feel like at the time. If I want a rag tag army with multiple types of artillery working together I'm for toxin and regular GLA.
Air Force is simply the best army in the game, holding a 1v1 advantage on all but Infantry on small maps, and outmatched by no one on large maps or in team games. Stealth and Toxin (Stealth is better against USA's, Toxin vs. China's, but t's very close) are just below Air Force in terms of dominance, although they are a bit easier to use.
Infantry falls just behind the three behemoths, but has favorable matchups against everyone else, and also is terrific against Air Force on small maps. The rest except for China, Nuke, and Super Weapon are all average.
Air Force?I've played hard against them nearly all the time and end up beating them alwaysWith the superhero general! ! Just deploy like 3 avengers and that's it -_-Still I like to use the Air Force general because I like king raptors.
To maximize your ability to keep pace and dominate the battlefield, here are some strategies and techniques to use in online and practice matches. Generals : Berthoud strategies tend to discourage simplicity when launching attacks, but even in this more sophisticated game there are times when a good mass of tanks is the best solution to your problems.
The Paladins and Crusaders of the USA are too expensive to waste, and the Scorpions and Marauders of the GLA need serious upgrading before they can hold their own. China has both the Battle master, which receives a bonus in hordes, and the Overlord, which while slow can mount a Gatling gun, or bunker for 5 soldiers, or a propaganda tower that can heal other tanks.
Expanding is not necessary once you’ve enough Hackers, Supply Pads, or Generals Points in bounties on destroyed vehicles. One particularly effective tactic for China or the GLA is to invest in siege weaponry of your own, and time force-fired nuclear artillery or scud missiles to impact every couple seconds within the choke point.
Many Berthoud matches end in a giant contest to determine which player can build the most super-weapons the fastest. They’ve also got to be defended while building, and both power and defense require resources that could otherwise fund offensive forces.
Command and Conquer Generals : Berthoud strategies that emphasize expansion, raiding, and focused strikes can be incredibly effective counters. Taking over as many resource stockpiles as possible, launching harassment air strikes on prerequisite buildings and resource gatherers, and in the GLA’s case, the use of rebel ambushes and tunnel sneak attacks on the super-weapons themselves can frustrate and negate a super-weapon focused base.
Missions in this case mean going up against an optimized pre-constructed base run by an AI general that will mock you at every turn and strike your most vulnerable structures and units. These target infantry and armor equally effectively, and the Patriot Defenses smash aircraft and incoming missiles.
Attacking vehicles are disabled by the Patriots and aircraft are instantly destroyed, so this is one of the tougher Command and Conquer Generals : Berthoud missions. Use helicopters screened by other aircraft to draw fire or the GLA rebel ambush get some infantry next to a particle cannon and have them try to capture it.
But get close, apply constant pressure, and you’ll beat one of the easiest of the Command and Conquer Generals : Berthoud missions. This General can be a tough nut to crack, because his three nuclear missile silos are more than enough to wipe many bases out in short order.
Approaches to his base are sealed by overlord tanks firing radioactive shells and nuclear artillery cannons. He blathers quite a bit about making the ground run red with blood, crushing under tanks, etc.
Defend yourself by scattering defenses that detect stealthed units liberally through your base, then counterattack with super-weapons. The Global Liberation Army, true to their modus operandi, found new ways to elude their enemies and make use of what little resources they have.
