Planetary Annihilation Gameplay Summary:

I really like the terrain on this Planetary Annihilation match. Cracks makes for some very nice choke points which allows you to control where the engagements happen.

Lessons (spoilers)

Cracks can work for you or against you. They can create choke points to funnel your opponent and control where the engagements happen. However, it can also box you in. Don’t forget, fabricators can build factories on the other side of cracks, which can allow you to expand faster. Also, if your base is separated by a crack, it can give you critical time to regroup if you’re overwhelmed.

The opening build orders are critical. If you fall behind in the first 5 minutes or so, it is incredibly difficult to catch up – especially if you’re close to your opponent.
