I didn't push any body.

This seems strange, I recall this terrain from not less than two other maps.

Forget it. Nice to see a map from you.

sorry about the necromancy here dudes but i was replaying some of the ones that have me stumped and this one i really do not get...

i can get about 7 omnis up and running, kill the nearest mire emitter, get the amp gem (omni reactors) aaannnd...

the enemy emergent gets my command ship every single restart! ::)

i have tried building ships but the emergent usually gets them and the CS in under 2 mins, mostly i end up with with 4 or 5 large emergent in the starting area in under 1:20.

i have tried moving up the map, didn't end well, and across to the right, and it doesn't seem to matter where i put the command ship, there is so much enemy emergent it always gets my CS and any ships i am building.

so, the questions i have for folks who remember this map are:

1: is this just a "keep respawning the CS and bash on at the map" type of map?

or

2: am i missing something, a safe spot, a better build order, what am i doing wrong?

so off to reply with a "just build omnis" strat and constant CS respawns...  ho hum...  8)

ok, after 20 or so restarts i got a working method... not a neat one but it works!

(click to show/hide)

left for posterity... and hopefully it will help someone who needs it, i could have done with this advice over the last few days of having a bash at this one!

Emergent attack the "middle of your domain". That's based on energy mines and ships. So sometimes, placing your ships in two different spots can lure the Emergent to float around somewhere harmless.

Also noteworthy is that Emergent "retreat" when you build more units and ships, moving back to the middle of the red-controlled area. This means that building an extra ship with no guns and leaving it just behind your front line can push Emergent away somewhat.

ahh interesting, i accidentally found the first method i think then!

good tip on the second option too.
