Empires and Allies for Windows 7/8/8.1/10/XP/Vista/MAC OS/Laptop
Top 10 tips and tricks you need to know in order to get started with Empires & Allies for PC.
1. Set Up Your Base and Place Traps for Your Enemies
Design your base carefully, placing the Guard Towers, Landmines, Artilleries, and other structures in such a way so as to make your opponent’s task of conquering it as difficult as possible. As build up your base, your XP level also increases, eventually allowing you to upgrade your Headquarters (HQ). Depending on what level your HQ is, you get access to more advanced buildings and structures.
2. Set Rally Flag Defenses
Set your rally flag defense in accordance with your opponent’s attack strategies. For instance if you’re constantly facing Tanks, set a rally flag for Spider Drones, or deploy Commandos to defend your base from aircraft.
3. Surprise Your Attacker
You can set traps for your opponents either by building dome units or with strategic rally flag placement. Don’t forget to change your defense weapons under each dome as you level up! You could surprise Tank-heavy enemy forces with a Tactical High-Energy Laser (THEL), and then replace the weapon with a domed aerial defense, which is great against Helicopter attacks. Also, don’t chop down all the trees – opponents who haven’t done a good job scouting could be surprised by rally flag Commandos or Spider Drones placed behind the tree line.
4. Carefully Build that Perfect Army
Build up a fighting force comprised of units from modern day armies. You start off with Rangers, a versatile group made up of Riflemen, Rockets, and Medics, an subsequently unlock Tanks, Attack Drones, Tomahawk Missiles, and more!
5. Know the Strengths and Weaknesses of Your Troops
You should be aware of your different troops` different strengths and weaknesses! Rangers, for instance, are good against Spider Drones, while the Striker VI armored vehicle can be used to blow aircraft out of the skies.
6. Dominate the Battlefield
The team adds a whole new layer of gameplay to the overall experience. Prior to battle, you might want to scout your enemy’s base. Player-versus-environment (PvE) missions are more like puzzles which you need to solve to achieve victory. They have deploy zones set so you’ll have to carefully consider the best plan of attack beforehand in order to take out the enemy defenses.
7. Collect Command Points
The key to controlling the battlefield are the Command Points. You get them by destroying enemy structures, and are used to deploy Command Powers. Some of these Command Powers launch powerful attacks with weapons like Tactical Nukes, Hellfire Missiles, and Orbital Strokes, while others simply control your units. You start with Flares and an A10 airstrike, and progressively earn new Command Powers like Hellfire missile strikes.
8. Know How to Control Your Troops
When attacking a base, there are a few ways to send your troops exactly where you want them to go. For a single Command Point, you can use a Flare to direct your troop on the field of battle. At Level 4 HQ, you can choose to deploy different troops in single or multiple units. As you progress, you will gain the ability to assign various troops to different control groups, enhancing your strategic options.
9. Set Up Alliances with Your Friends
Empires & Allies allows you to create and join alliances, as well as to connect with friends in-game and even in private chatrooms. You should take advantage of this aspect of the game, as allies can help speed up upgrades and share resources. To create or join an Alliance, you have to connect to Facebook or Game Center.
10. Use the Strike Force
When your HQ reaches Level 4, you unlock the Strike Force ability, which allows you to boost structures on your base, making them stronger and faster. To use the ability, which can strengthen defenses, enhance units, and increase Command Points, simply tap on the icon in the bottom left corner of the screen to expand the Strike Force menu, and then drag one of the icons onto the building of your choice.
