I don't know how many of you out there play Kane's wrath, but i have made this instructable for the few that know online play is massively different from vs computer play, you need to be very fast and equipped with strategies so i will set it off with two of my favorite strategies that i use, and if there is enough interest and tips to help me improve i will expand and post lots more strategies which work well...feel free to explain a strategy to me so i can post it onto the instructable and credit you for it, happy RTSing :D
the first two are very basic, and are the same ones that i used when i first played online, and they are great starters for new players since they work so well even though they are so simple, oh, and my name on kane's wrath is zonecommunictns so feel free to play me, but i wont be online for a while because my main PC is down.
Step 1: The Basic Attack Bike / Pit-bull / Seeker Rush
strategy name: the basic attack bike / pit-bull / seeker rush
for faction/s: all
this strategy requires speed, so make sure that you are quick, this also works best on games with low starting credits.
To start off with build a power plant, then barracks and a refinery, while that is building, build and deploy an anti infantry defense on the route that you think is most likely for the enemy to take, and train a few basic infantry and place them around your base to kill any scouts that the enemy may have sent, after your refinery is built, start constructing a war factory, put up a couple more anti infantry defenses and train some anti vehicle infantry and place them near your main tiberium field to protect your harvesters from an attack. as soon as the war factory is done, deploy it and build a harvester, after the harvester is created build 8 basic vehicles.
Be patient while these basic vehicles build and while you are waiting place some more anti vehicle infantry around your main tiberium field being careful not to let your credits hit 0 and send some scouts into the enemy base to try and find a part of the base that your basic vehicles can enter without sustaining too much damage, once the basic vehicles are done building, select them all and allocate them to team 1 (ctrl + 1) and rush them into the enemy base making sure that they all stay together, enter the part of the base that you had scouted earlier and go straight for the harvesters, if your opponent is NOD then you may have to look around because they have the stealth ability.
once all their harvesters are taken out, attack the power plants to cut off the defense power, and then the war factory, attack the other structures with your remaining attack bikes and if you loose them all make sure that you are preparing a second attack back at your base, the second attack should comprise of tier 2 units and should finish the attack if they haven't surrendered already from lack of credits.
Step 2: The Marked of Kane EMP Rush.
strategy name: the marked of Kane EMP rush.
for faction/s: Marked of Kane.
This strategy requires some micro-management so be prepared, to start off with build a power plant, barracks and a refinery, when the barracks go down instantly train 6 awakened and 2 saboteurs, while the are being trained put down a shredder turret to defend your base from infantry, this is a do-or-die strategy so it may not work or work great, position the saboteurs in front of the awakened because they are slower and will lag behind, what you do when you reach the enemy base is decided by whether they have put defense down, if they have then use one of the awakened to EMP it, then once you reach the construction yard EMP that with another, this will stop the enemy building more defense and will stop the construction yard packing up into a MCV, quickly capture it with one of your saboteurs making sure to keep the defense suppressed with EMP, once it has been captured you can pack it up and send it back to your base, and you can use the remaining saboteur to capture another important structure, and use the rest of your awakened to kill of as many buildings as you can before they die. then after that you can build up a small force to clean up the rest of the base if they have not surrendered already, BUT if they have build a crane they may be able to recover their base, so be ready. But if they do recover you have just taken away a major part, meaning they will have to construct a war factory and build another MCV before they can build anymore defenses.
Step 3: MCV Rush
strategy name: MCV rush.
for faction/s: all.
The MCV rush could be thought of the most basic strategy ever, or even being a bit noobish. It is a do-or-die and if you dont get it right the first time you probably will not win.
To start this strategy you need speed and suprise, so as soon as the game starts pack up your construction yard and send it into the nearest enemy base, as soon as it arrives unpack it and build a power plant and a barracks, you need to be quick as they might start making engineers to capture your construction yard, so get the buildings up as quickly as possible, and build an anti infantry defense to stop more engineers, once your barracks are build start training engineers to capture the enemy structures and some rocket soldiers to supress the enemy defenses and building queues. after you have finished that, just build a small strike force to destroy the rest of the enemy.
