A home defense strategy that works!!!!!
« on: February 16, 2011, 07:32:35 AM »

Has anybody found a strategy that works almost perfectly yet?

on topic, I have found a great defense strategy that works for me.
My strategy is simple but not cheap. (It takes some time to get working)
This strategy has survived a 5,000 ship attack containing ships from all expansions, including 25 guardians and 10 star-ships at III.

This is how i do it.
1. Research exo-shield and heavy beam cannon platform.
2. Create multiple engineers preferably 4 - 6.
3. Build 2 small shield generators next to home shield.
4. Build the turrets around the home station. (outside the shield of course for that extra punch of power)
5. Build minefields around the shield and turrets. (I use enough mines that the entire outer area is covered in mines.)
6. Set up re constructors

After those 6 steps i create a attack force and capture a nearby system, for the research and upgrade my shields and turrets.
Defense is key when those huge attacks come in.

This works great if you have rebels patrolling your bases.
