We can start with Hard, still a couple of guys away or not connecting. If we clear hard in 3 Days then Expert will fall too!

Germans again, swapping a couple of cards from the Raids decks... no need for Green Devils eh?

Campaign Missions -- Hard Level

Postby dyvim tvar » 01 Jun 2016, 21:21

As a tip, I am having really good results in the Hard campaign with a crafted Japanese deck. Lots of units that heal me on promote have helped me get 3 stars on 39 of the first 40 missions (mission 3 seems impossible).

Aleksander: Of course I mean Elite Green Devils :) Those guys are cool! Restore attack and buff other Germans when promoted, and they make good decoys too!

Team Raid: We ended up starting Expert anyhow, no worries! If it takes 4 days we'll hit Medium next, since Easy actually seems MORE difficult! We should have 15 active guys again pretty soon.

Good point Dyvim Tvar, beating the Bergers is easier with promoting the heck out of your guys, then there's no real need for decoys. If the Berger blows up the unit which does the promoting? Cool! It might come back again that much faster!

I usually buff the snot out of my Machinegun and Brutality Infantry: Exercise Tiger is my backbone! Often it hurts them badly to be promoted. That's why I carry so many decoys! And David and Monty can be quite useful too.

My raid deck (please give feedback!)

Themes:
Machine Guns
American Infantry
Exercise Tiger
EZ Equip
Flying Tigers for shields (free to play if your HP is lower than CPUs)

Group Raid Deck:
1 Ramcke
1 Hell’s angels
1 McCampbell
1 The Fighting Five
1 29th Infantry
2 hetzer
2 Flying Tigers
2 1st marine corps
2 6th ranger battalion
2 2nd marine division

15 units

1 Vampir
1 Gunto sword
1 Browning
1 Mosin
1 Howitzer
2 Medal of Honor
2 Bren gun

9 equips

6 orders

Strategy:
Get one huge 1st marines to front with brutality and either sniper (Mosin) or heal (Gunto)
Play lots of Exercise Tiger on your machine gun brutality unit
Ignore everything else (use flying tiger as shield)

Haven't kept as detailed records as would be useful, but my estimate is an average of 200 damage. Last raid hit 299

Important: Can we all remind everyone that is not hitting team raids to come read this:
:arrow: Hitting the 4x Team Raids, once each, one time a week, will get him over 1200 Raid Points! That's nearly 2x Blueprints, for 4 tickets. Or just hit Hard and Expert twice each, or check which ones we plan to hit. It's free stuff!!
(I got a-hold of EliteJager, he has seen the light!)

Anyhow: My format came by accident! I was trying to show them 3-wide, but that was impossible. So I ended up listing them like that.

Specter: I'm a big fan of decoys, and specializing decks. I'd go more one way: infantry or tanks, forget the aircraft against the Russians. Plan on using Exercise Tiger for Inf, or something else for the tanks. It depends on how many Elites you can get made for each of the classes.

No Afrika Corps? That hurts... you know the other 4 cards you urgently need... Ramcke might help too but of course is difficult to get.

Elite Rommel won't help at all in Raids, unless you haven't got a normal one. Good for the rest of the game of course. Much better are Elite Hetzer (you have 2x, good!) or Elite Panther for a tank deck. Even 2x Elite Bergers are more useful, kill stuff & add life too.

Those 4-8 life are meaningless. David saves more than that!! Just use his Flag to block something with Brutality (zero damage) and he shoots over it to block it some more next turn too! Especially useful if it doesn't have brutality, or to set up a unit to take it out after that. David's Flag also can save your attacking units too so they survive to shoot 1-3 more turns! Especially good for Brutality Machinegunners (which you only have one, Browning, but still!) and he's fast, another possibly useful ability to block damage.

If you make other fighting units? The Legends can act as decoys, since they will attract a lot of nasty attention. If you pump AP into a Legend with promotions and items? BOOM they're gone! Ouch.

Anyhow you seem to do a ton of damage, your deck is good! It's just my opinion on small details.

- Specialize Units (inf arm OR air) as much as you can so your items and orders will be most useful to most of your units. Having a tank-only item when only 1/3 of your units are tanks? Not efficient.
- Multi-purpose as much as you can. Medical tents? meh! Elite Green Devils? Woo-hoo! They can: restore attack, block, act as a decoy (mostly after promotion) and if promoted add +3/+3 to everything! You can promote them with Elite grosser, play them free with the 14th, and Ex-Tiger works on them to boot! Slap a couple of items on them (if you have to, if they manage to stay alive) and they can do damage as well... super useful!

With the Russians I let the -5 hit the decoy (like David!) over and over, when this works it's nice! They also attract the Not One Step.
Against the Germans the decoys are less effective, but do attract the Bergers and Confusion away from your damage-making units.

Mass NOSB and Mass Confusion = you are screwed no matter what... no decoy for that! :x

I'll add stuff if I think of anything, cheers!
