Planetary Annihilation Gameplay Summary:

First time seeing pengul play Planetary Annihilation, and I’m surprised. A skilled player comes out of nowhere and plays well against Clopse.

Some unfortunate bugs plague both players.

Planetary Annihilation Lessons, Tips, and Tricks (spoilers)

Nice raiding from both players. This match really goes to show how helpful a single Ant or Dox can be for raiding on the backside. Which is why putting up defensive structures at your metal expansions is very important.

Something both players should have done more of was build Radar. A basic Radar tower can provide invaluable intel. And since they are very cheap, costing only 150 metal and 300 energy per second, there’s practically no reason not to put up radar towers. I like to have a net of radar all the way around my base, particularly at my backside and metal expansions. This helps me know about incoming raids sooner, so I can better defend against them.

When using bombers, obtaining air supremacy is absolutely imperative.

Critical mistake from pengul to leave his Commander out in the open. That commander should have been in the center of his main base, not at the front standing around. I’m guessing pengul mis-clicked, rather than intentionally sending in the Commander towards Clopse’s base, and its doom.
