Planetary Annihilation Gameplay Summary:

Excellent Planetary Annihilation match. Absolutely beautiful early raiding and beautiful bot micro. Brilliant moves like that can win the game in the first ten minutes.

Lessons (spoilers)

Early on, you’re better off avoiding commanders and doing damage to their economy and production power.

Bots are extremely effective when heavily microed. Makes them difficult to use, but extremely powerful when used properly. Have them keep skirting around and avoid confrontation. Early game is all about building a strong economy for large late game armies.

Never stop building your economy. The key to Planetary Annihilation is blowing up your enemy. The best way to do that is to have greater quantities of more powerful units than your enemy. The way to do that is with a strong economy. You can have the best strategy ever, but you’ll be beaten by a larger army, no matter what.

I like mceldowney’s move to build massive amounts of storage with his commander. Need to see it in action more to see how valid it is, but it seems like a good idea.

Long economy oriented build queues are your friend.
