The Crazy Psychopath Posted January 23, 2005 Share Posted January 23, 2005 Today's strategy tip is for the rebel side. It focuses on Skywalker and the best way to put him to good use. Skywalker starts off as a weakling little farm boy, but you can turn this farm boy into a badass jedi farm man in a few days. Instead of wasting his potential combat skills on diplomacy and recruitment missions, instead have Skywalker build up his combat abilities through missions. Simply put skywalker on a decent ship with capable speed, a correlian corvette or one of the starting bulk cruisers. At the beginning have him orbit neutral planets and send him down on sabotage missions onto the planet. Have him sabotage anything he can get his hands on. Production facilities, mines, refineries, defensive structures. If you do not want to sacrifice facilities in the inner rim, he can always sabotage outer rim neutrals, although this is typically slightly slower. Each successful mission he gains 1-5 combat points. Within days you can have Skywalker exceed Vader's 220 combat score. When he returns from his training with Yoda he will be in the high 200's (or even in the 300s if you train him enough). He can then easily take on Vader without any problems. Imperial controlled planets:You can have skywalker sabotage Imperial controlled planets at roughly 130 combat and above. Send him down to take out each facility one by one. If there are a couple troops on the planet and/or ion cannons (they foil missions) it gets even better! If you send him alone his mission will be foiled, but because of the fact that he had a close encounter his force rating will climb significantly! If needed you can repeat this as many times as necessary, ensuring Skywalker becomes a jedi knight just as he leaves his training with Yoda. Once Skywalker has sufficient combat rating, have him face Vader. He will get away. Facing Vader increases his force and combat rating SIGNIFICANTLY. If in the unlikely event that he is captured, it might be even better for you! Vader will take him to the Emperor, in which the "Final Battle Event" will unfold. If Skywalker has sufficient combat ability he will easily deal with both the Emperor and Lord Vader, capturing both personnel in one big blow. The only thing you would have to do from that point is capture Coruscant. The Imperial player will be at a significant disadvantage since this will force the player into a defensive posture. Not to mention the fact that the Imperial lost two of his major characters, and a lost significant leadership bonus to his personnel from the Emperor's "Seat of Power" effect. The best Rebellion player in the world. Want to challenge me? http://myleague.com/rebellion1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
