Planetary Annihilation Gameplay Summary:

It’s interesting to see an Uber dev out in the wild playing Planetary Annihilation.

There’s lots of concern in the community that the Uber devs don’t know how to properly play the game, so this is encouraging.

Match 1

ZaphodX and Meta get teamed up against in the first match.

Planetary Annihilation Lessons, Tips, and Tricks (spoilers)

Use radar. Seriously. So valuable for gaining an advanced warning of incoming attacks.

Getting off planet is very important for gaining a huge boost to economy. And defending a planet is so much easier than invading a planet.

The new Walls are very powerful. Put a few of them in front of defensive structures to greatly increase their effectiveness.

White did a great job of running away from the defending army to target economy buildings. The best thing to do when attacking is to focus on economy buildings and run away from defending armies to do more damage against the economy. It’s difficult to recover from economy losses.

Match 2 – Starts at 26 minutes

ZaphodX and Meta’s spawns don’t have them inbetween their two opponents, allowing for a better start.

Meta focuses more on expansion, while ZaphodX focuses on defending and attacking.

Planetary Annihilation Lessons, Tips, and Tricks (spoilers)

Expanding quickly and far is risky, but is very rewarding.

Build factories at your expansions. It allows you to better defend and raid, as well as expand farther and faster.

Bots are cheaper, so they are fantastic for putting on lots of pressure early on.

Don’t neglect air defenses. Advanced air is very powerful and can really screw you over if you’re not prepared.

Constantly constantly scout. Knowing what your opponent is up to is critical.
