Helirushed again in Multiplayer! What is NATO Defense?

Postby SocialistJamie » Thu 14 Jul 2016 00:02

Ok, the helirushing phenom by some experienced players in Wargame multiplayer is outta control. They usually play PACT, and within a minute of game start, a bunch of killer helis and heli recons are coming this way and that way into the spawn base.

Seriously, is there a NATO defense to this cheesy trollish tactic?
I actually made an anti-helispam NATO deck, inspired by experience with helitrolls. Literally loaded it with every decent AA unit I have access to. Spamed AA everywhere around my spawn base. Next experience Pact player I engaged, I broke out this anti-helitroll deck, expecting trollish behavior. Dang it, he actually wanted to play a decent game, but everything I had was dedicated to snuffing experienced helirushing trolls (no tanks or higher point units powerless against helis were availed in my anti-heli deck) You see, reaction to helirushing trolls can warp games with decent players, because I have no way of knowing who is who. And it seems only NATO response to PACT heli-trolling is to bring everything AA and smack the aggressor flies down, leave no yummy high-point units that are weak vs helis....and hope to Gawd you actually are facing a helitroll deserving revenge.

Don't spend all your command points at the start of a game. Keep something like 300 points to be able to call what you need to counter this kind of shit tactics.

For NATO, base Flakpanzers in number and some vet3 or vet4 high end Chaparrals will be able to deal a vast amount of damage to Pact helos.

Try to be smarter than your opponent : move your CVs to avoid the helos. And while calling AA units, launch some units to hunt enemy CVs. In general, the rushers have only one or two rarely defended CVs.

Last night, I got some coaching that showed me better placement of defense for my home spawn cv, and I really appreciate that.
