Do you like to devastate entire legions in a single go?

Or prefer a massive army to roll across the map, crushing all opposition?

Let me know, this will be of use for another article:).

Hmmm...

I don't really like either of these options. If I can do it I like fast hit and run geurilla armies. I don't like super units that devastate armies in one go though, that's just really, really annoying.

I've yet to find a game where that will actually win, though - sounds more like of a strategy before a main offensive.

Yeah, you can harry supplys and opposing units enough to get an offensive going. It is the only way to play Nod for instance. Kind of works in LSN as well but that's not an RTS.

You have to combine it with a serious defence as well..

Mind you I haven't really played all that much RTS for 5 years or so now.

Looks like you are the only one liking the devastation option. :)

I just build a sprawling base (or several bases, if you prefer) and mass my units for attacks on several fronts. This bores me, but there is no other way to play well in most RTSs.

You can win in C&C Tiberian Dawn using those damn digging transports and engineers. As I learned at great cost in my first Skirmish game.
