Box Formation Edit

The box formation is setup the way it is to hopefully funnel enemy units or even buildings to maximise firepower against that or those targets. This strategy is best used in 1v1 or 2v2 on pure land maps. The basic way of imagining this strategy is to imagine layers of units starting from heavily Armored in front and light units in the middle. Whichever faction you play, in order to take a base head on you'll need approximately 8 - 12 squares of units. Measure these boxes using the width of your T3 Siege Assault bots.


These squares should be about 8x6 Siege Assault Bots all the way around. Within the outer shell, Medium Tanks will be setup with 2 lines in front and 1 line on all three sides. Now within that, all 4 corners should hold a shield generator each and the rest of the empty space should house AA Flak Artillery. Bringing 1 - 3 helpful Engineers to build point defense and other helpful constructs to aide your attack could improve the outcome. Another version of this is wrapping a Fatboy with 1 layer of siege Assault Bots and another of AA Flak Artillery, that method requires only 4 - 5 boxes.

The Formation should resemble something like this: (T3 = Siege Assault Bots) (T2 = Medium Tanks) (AA = AA Flak) (En = T3 Engineer) (¤¤ = Experimental)

(I don't play Cybran much but massing Spiders might just do the trick)


The Aeon race lacks land offense but some indirect fire could change the fight. The Aeons' Mobile Heavy Artillery Serenity could replace the need to reproduce double your forces by implementing long range operations before you begin your siege. Follow the same guide lines as the UEF by making your boxes 8x6 T3 Siege Assault Bots, with that have 2 layers of medium tanks with 1 layer of tanks on the other 3 sides.
