The other allies are still trying to bring down an enemy. 2 enemies are bringing you down. Its no hope for you , and your homeworld will die. What can you do? Heres some tips of the top of my head. Everyone pls contribute.
Delay Delay Delay. The more you delay the enemy , the more you can help your allies to give them time to kill the enemy.
Be a nuisance. Think long term , about how you can help when you dont have any Homeworld or income left. What units can cause most annoyance to the enemy.
Dont waste credits against overwhelming odds . Some might think its good to spam as much as you can to fight the enemy.i.e fight to the death . Why? Why spend cash on a single LRM thats about to spawn against 30 enemy LRMs. It will die in 1 second. Its poor investment.
1) Upgrade your Homeworld Infrastructure. Infact upgrade other planets as much as you can too. This is Delay
2) Spam Capships and run them away. Once you lose hw , nothing is better then having nomadic caps to support allies. Capships can bombard. Target undefended asteroids. Use colony caps to colonise just so that the enemy has to bombard them. Also do exp farming. Find where your allies are battling the enemy. Could be a 6 pips vs 6 pip battle. Just park your capship on the edge of the battle ready to escape and farm exp.
3) Spam carriers. Form a carrier army and run them away. They have enough armour to escape away from a sieged gravwell . General frigates will probably die.
4) Make repair bay forests . nothing delays the enemy more then making these.
5) Feed your allies as much as you can. Delay your enemy , but speed up their fight too.
Try to find areas of the game which are under-microed by your allies.
Your greatest strength is your 100% focus on MICRO. You have a greater control over your nomadic caps and carriers then your allies who have to also MACRO their empires.
-Forexample , if your allies are having a scout battle at a neutral asteroid. why not park a nomadic carrier to help your allies gain the neutrals. Allies cant keep an eye out on these areas all the time , but you CAN. Just tell them to send a scout to the neutral ,and you will do the rest of the work to make sure that he gets the neutral.
- If an ally has dominated a grav and is bombarding a high hp planet. Send your cap along to assist. You effectively double the speed that he kills the planet.
- When sending carriers to assist a battle , communicate with your ally. There are two targets for strikecraft - Ships and Strikecraft. Such is the nature of overwhelming micro , your ally will probably use them to fight one target. So use yours to target the other. "you take out the fighters ,ill kill the illums!"
more to come..this is top of my head.
