Planetary Annihilation Lessons, Tips, and Tricks (spoilers)

Spawning at different spawn points is 99 times out of 100, way better than spawning together. Spawning separate grants more map control, which results in access to more metal, which results in a larger economy.

Don’t construct buildings too close to metal spots or you’ll lose the metal spot.

Excess economy is wasted economy. Use it or lose it!

Early radar is excellent way to spot incoming raids or proxy bases.

It’s easier to claim a planet, than it is to invade a planet.

On multi planet matches, always always always build an early deep space orbital radar. That allows you to see if your opponent rushes orbital, so you can quickly catch up.

Scouting your opponents is imperative. It’s the best way to see what they’re up to, so you can counter it, snipe key enemy buildings, or destroy unguarded economy buildings.
