    This is WIP, I'm getting acquainted to the tool right now. I will add explanations and such later, right now I mostly want to figure out if my notation is intuitive to read and understand, if I have too many/not enough icons on the map and so on, so all feedback in that regard is appreciated.

    Of course you are free to discuss the actual strategies aswell. These are simplified version of tactics I can execute with most (Eldar) pugs if I have the squad-lead.
    I plan to add slides later for what happens if you don't succeed and so on but, frankly, if you give me 10 players who listen to my orders, I have a nigh 100% success rate with what I do.

    For now, these are Attacker-strategies for the basic supremacy maps.

    Also, I am not sure about the Defender-spawn on Pegasus A.

    @CuCulainn You said you were interested.

    nice :), i like the way you point out spawn area's, high ground etc.

    My approach below is slightly different on this example showing squad loadouts, and vehicles for use on Agathio A point.

    Careful. It looks as if you were suggesting to bring down one gate early. Unless you are with a guild-stack, the only Fortress where this might be a good option is Harkus.

    Good point, thou this was built for a guild. But yeah this 'plan' is far from complete and quite dated. I think its so old it may have been created when warparties where restricted to a max of 15 :).

    If I would update I would probably add another 10 man squad to hit from the east side. Probably split them between CQC fighters hitting the point, and then some long range hitters in the eastern buildings.
  5. When/if the Workshop goes live I'm wondering if you guys might be able to make an add-on or mod for EC so these great map tools can be implemented for Squad Leaders and/or for a single "Raid" leader per match.
  6. DavyBoy CuCulainn Curator

    Well phase one will just be cosmetics, but yeah i like your idea. Workshop has so much potential. Can’t wait to see this realized:)

    Also re this map tool, the guy (Kalith) who made does this all for free so drop him a donation if you can spare the coin. You can find the link on his front page.

    @Rheeva promethium mines and fortress Ronan have now been added to the tool.

    @Rheeva 'Carmine Ascent' and 'Pegusus Station Recovered' will be up on this tool soon
  10. Lady Rheeva Steam Early Access

    Hmm, yeah. I don't think people really care. I might make Carmine for myself because I need to figure out, how to play it best.
