    BUMP.

    Hey Wrathchild! Just wanted to say thanks buddy.
    Going Attack Chopper heavy is the most effective attack tactic post Dom's summer 'upgrades'.

    Using it, I can fill all my resources in half a day of back-to-back raiding, losing maybe 1 or 2 choppers per battle. Sometimes no losses at all.
    Typical load out: 6-9x Attack Helos, 2x APCs, 1-2x HTs, 2x Air Evac/Tac Helos, top up with RPGs, MGs, or regular rifles. I usually pick up Artillery from allies.
    HTs suck up defense towers shot (pretty much never die), APCs throw out grunts to keep enemy ground troops distracted, Helos take down all defense structures from range. Nice!
    Didn't expect this to work in WW, but just managed to 5* the oppo no.1 (CWA vs AA but still) with a few low era impis I wanted to burn anyhow. Didn't need any mercs.
    Air cover with either four fighters (to kill anything that even looks at one of my choppers) or two fighters + a strat bomber.

    Is anybody keeping a book on how long it takes Nexon to decide to 'improve gameplay' by reducing attack chopper effective range?
    Lol, get your upgrades in while you can guys. Killer strategy Wrathchild...!!

    And... Of course attack choppers eat up defense from range... Everybody knows that...

    But an unexpected extra bonus, for any player invested into bomber research at Armory & Amelia, is that your strategy to go heavy with Attack Choppers means that most of your target's SAM anti-air missiles are triggered bringing down choppers, instead of hurting your valuable (oil expensive) fighter/bomber fleet...

    Replacing choppers. Less than 5 mins per wave of 3 helos. Cost cheap food... Replacing 1 bomber. 48 mins. Oil...

    So next battles come round real quick too.

          just an update for you guys after the re-rebalance...

          The change of tactics effectiveness got me confused for a few days and everything was a bit weird. I could not 5 star bases that in the past were relatively easy.
          Today, I was testing army combos and tactics and managed to 5 star a level 275 base fully armed and loaded!! Yes luck helped me BUT it still shows that Heli combination is strong!

          Army composition was (currently 237 level and still on 150 capacity...):

          10 Heavy attack Helis
          1 HT MK4
          9 Elite Bazookas
          2 Elite machine guns
          4 foot soldiers

          Planes: 4 SSF MK2

          Alliance army was 7 Heavy RPGs.

          Tactics 5 betrayal 1 sabotage 1 decoy. I used betrayal on all HTs that spawned + his EAs that got out of his SH

          Mercenaries: 2 tank destroyers, 2 T-62 tanks

          Troop cards used were Rajput warrior, 2x shaolin monks and 1 EA

          Unfortunately, 2 mins after the battle, I could not watch the replay anymore so I am waiting for the defending ally to make a video of my attack.

            That's a lot oil oil power, good thing it was a war battle. Congrats on the win!
            Do the oil rewards cover your troops or do war rewards still suk?

            PS: I'm out for 11 days while my factory is being maxed. Looking forward to my HT Mk7!

            Yes true, but oil is a bit easier to get now and all oil costs have been halved so even if I lose, its not such a big deal anymore.
            With the latest rebalance in dominations bonus, I only attack low level cwa bases now. Yes I use more troops BUT I get 8-12K oil from loot + another 8400 oil from domination bonus = 16-20K oil per battle. I can make that 3-4 times daily.

            WW loot does barely cover oil costs but I don't care since I play WW for the adrenaline rush....

          Out of the rebalance topic actually, but a sweet hummingbird have just told me that attack helis work a lot better for pre-industrial players than howies! Think we've got to start donating them more 😊

            Due to inexperience, preindustrials will not give them the credit they deserve. It seems that helis, HT MK7 or HRPGs are more to their liking

          the game changes, the tactics change, so are we...

          Assault rally only made this build better (as with every other build I guess).

          1. vs CNCDNC level 255

          My opponent had max defence except redoubts and sniper towers.
          Unit composition was:
          3 APC
          8 attack Helis
          3 machine guns
          8 bazookas
          3 engineer
          Alliance gate: 8 bazooka
          Tactics: 3 decoy, 1 sabotage and 3 Assault rally level 1

          2. vs IronMan level 275

          One of the highest level opponents I have fought. No problem...
          Unit composition was:
          3 APC
          8 Attack Helis
          3 machine guns
          8 bazookas
          3 engineer
          Alliance gate: 8 bazooka
          Tactics: 3 decoy, 1 sabotage and 3 Assault rally level 1

          Maybe I should rename this build from Amelia to 383838 build...anyway, enjoy guys!

            What were your losses for each match?
            I try and avoid major losses wherever I can, without retrain videos. I like to bring my men back alive!

            these were WW battles. Loses were heavy but I always have Instant retrain active for that reason. If I can't bring my men back safe then I can resurrect them!!

          Sweet! This will be a good trial for me especially that my AR is level 1 😂
          I don't like machine guns really 😒 can I replace them with just mitra?

            not really...I wouldn't because machine guns are there to supress until the zooks finish them off. You can try to replace them and see the results by yourself.

            You are welcome.

            Every Atomic age player in my alliance uses now helis for loot and WW. It proved to be a nice substitute to the all HT and it still requires some skill but isn't too oil demanding. We even managed to lose a WW against 7 CWA against our 1 by 2 stars only. Everybody used that combo and all had to hit targets 20-40 levels above their own.
