Planetary Annihilation Lessons, Tips, and Tricks (spoilers)

Placing offensive units at outlying metal spots near your opponent is an excellent way to take out enemy fabricators and prevent expansion.

Air fabricators are excellent at expanding and claiming metal spots. They can also build on metal spots in the middle of the lake without having to invest in naval, which means those metal extractors are more difficult to destroy.

Building proxy bases on the backside of your opponent’s base is an excellent way of keeping your opponent defending rather than attacking. It also can make for a very nasty surprise if left unchecked.

Commanders are nowhere near as powerful as they used to be. Be careful when using them to defend against incoming attacks!
