What trends have you guys noticed throughout the time you've played the game? I've noticed a periodic swing in unit use across the players. At first, Hydras were all the rave; Cyclopses were never used, except maybe to torture enemies by bringing in a slow unit that destroys buildings instantly. After a few months of 2010 passed, I noticed that everybody was using Cyclopses, and Hydras were only for "newbs"; the power of Cyclopses had been revealed. We're at the point now where we have realized a balanced army is generally victorious.

P.S. I am glad to say that I have officially been playing this game for two years!

Congrats on being with us for two years nate Very Happy.

I think I came during the cyclops trend, so I just played using all cyclops too. Then I decided to add hydras into my army at about the time lots of people decided to use infantry (I thought libs were a waste of money). Then I decided to try cyclops lib trooper just to see whether it would work and for a while I was doing good, but then I think people decided on the combination of vehicles that I had today: cyclops hydra lib. That combo ripped apart my cyclops lib trooper army. During that time I had also mixed cyclopes hydras libs and troopers, for a good effect, but that too went down by the vehicle trio army. Then I became a pro when Wolfy the almighty wulf taught me that libs and hydras were good, and that troopers could be used in the right circumstance. There were a few people I knew who had decided to do that: Diggs and Wolfy (of course). But then I realized cyclops could just take down my hydra, so I needed some long-range stuff so I switched to hydra cyclops lib and I have been playing with that ever since the time I retired and became a Dr. of this game and of Dr. Pepper.

hmm this thread makes me want to download the game and play again.
Your right Nate, I noticed the same trend. I was a heavy hydra user though, so that means I was a noob Wink.

i love owning with security guards.

I hope WI2 has a flamethrower unit.

Uhhhhh security guards own against other security guards, raiders and rocket troopers, but not really against anything else.

Security guards own when there is no alternative xD.

I always went cyclops and troopers (rocket troopers are quite effective, I must say) peppered with some hydras in case enemy responds with libs.

I think I've always been going with libs and cyclopses except for my first few months.
I've been playing since oct 09 (:

Played a few games recently and people are using hydras again.
Too easy to beat haha.

Yeah as of 2-3 months ago, I've been using the Vts trio (Cyclops, hydra, lib). Actually another good combo is hydra lib rocket troopers which I've seen some people use. But yeah Nate, I have noticed some unit trends over time.

When i joined, there wasnt too much good people,
Wolfy, enzo, blake, redscorpion, etc weremt on so i just started with hydras, then cyclops once everyone figured them out, ive never used rocket troops or guards untill like 3 months ago, but as going through from the beginning, i think that the new army everyone uses is probably the greatest, but it also depends because when i play i change armies according to the oppenents army, so idk if it is a trend right now, more of a float your boat type armies these days
