I haven't seen any discussion on missles, but I think they are an important part of the game to learn some strategy on. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on missle strategy such as the best targets to hit first, or how they are most used effectively.
Make a few silos, use shift x to select them all and make cruise in each one. Hit whatever is useful. Wonders (only takes 3-5 to take out an early age wonder), cities, etc. Usually I use them in conjunction with commandos to reduce cities to get a WG victory. I don't usually bother getting nukes because they take too long to research.
how about selecting all the siege to target at once. same thing, shift + something else?
1 cruise to kill the uni, 1 straight after kills all scholars. 10 cruise = no knowledge income.
thats a good idea, then they can't lauch any nukes back cause they have no knowledge. good call. thanx
That was always my plan. Hit the Hanging Gardens, universities, oil, oil refineries and they're gonna struggle!
HG is not so important in late age games
+50 knowledge income p
HG aint that great anytime P

I get how 1 cruise will kill the university and then another one after will wipe out the scholars, but I don't see how this 10 cruise killing all of the income works out. At first I figured that it would be 2 cruises per city, 1 for the university in that city and the rest for that city's scholars making the cruises go after five cities, but can't more than 5 cities be built?
Yes, you can rebuild unis or you can have more than 5 unis anyway. But usually 35 scholars are enough to maximise th eknowledge income. That means 5 unis with 7 scholars.
That is why 10 missiles should kill all scholars.
Holy crap, this forum has been dead for almost a year now, and I didn't realize that until after I made my post. Wow, didn't think someone was actually going to respond to me.
@_@ I actually closed new registrations due to the farking spammers.
I usually make silos and destroy eco buildings like woodcoters camps, farms, graneries, universities, etc
