Act of Aggression Strategy Guide - "The General and the Detailed" 2.0 Update on 5.02.2017: New old faction overviews

Act of Aggression Strategy Guide 2.0 (Cartel Update and more)
– by Kampfkekskrieger –


Introduction

Act of Aggression is a new Real -Time-Strategy-Game and for me it is even more because it bundes the pulse of time of a major group of people that share a modern hobby.

Reason enough to write a Strategy Guide for all the commanders and generals out there to help you to control the factions for you dont get into besetted situations so you can actually enjoy the game.

The following hints, tips and How-To's should lead your favourite factions into Victory.
They are based on my large experience as RTS-player and over 200 hours of Act of Aggression.

A Note: This is my first Guide I write and I am not a native english speaker. If somebody can give me some better formulations and a correcture if there are mistakes, please somebody give me a PM so I can correct them. If my language is not objective enough or too emotional or too tinted with a nodge that you dont like, just tell me please.

Edit on Version 2.0: I did more than just adding the Cartel faction but actually worked on the whole guide to improve its quality. I added some chapters where I saw them at their right place or if I had the feeling that some additional explaination is needed.

The Download Link is:

( Warning : Now, the interface has changed again. Try it with a right click on the download-button, and save link as... . Then it works. With the first try I just got redirected to advertising, but it actually still gives the guide. )

---
PS: I know that my Guide has some mistakes concerning the form of presentation.
I am still working on a new release.

Kindly, Kampfkekskrieger

Update on 5.02.2017:

I have made a few faction overviews for the 3 factions, as you would have tech-trees in the printed manual in earlier C&C games and AoW, also.
I made them longer time ago already, but I struggled with some last steps that would have refined them, as they are just a little little bit uncorrect ( I did not mark the stealth units in the cartel overview is 1 of 3 little mistakes I have found), and also, if other people would understand them like I created it.

But I have such a major joy today, that I finally want to publish them anyways.

Mmh, you must be an adept of those cartel thieves. Friedrich II ended up betraying his french allies before the war of the 7 years, leading him to his great defeat at Kunersdorf battle. Otherwise he was a great general :lol:

Joke apart, nice and useful post.

Thanks for this :)
That's the saddest part of the story. I was getting used to think, after nearly three decades of its existence, that the word "Strategy" was the main cornerstone of the RTS genre and golden age.

Wow, i´m really impressed!

Very good work on this Guide. Already the table of content with all it´s sub-contents is a nice piece of work.
And he probably did that all in his spare time.

Thumb up from me, nice job!

Hi, I just created an account to say thank you for this great guide.

As a new player that is really helpful. It also helped me to choose on which faction I want to focus first (fast and agile :))

Thank you!

Nice work KampfKekskrieger, well appreciated.

But in a later version, please add the number of pages in the table of contents and take a little more space between the lines, maybe 3pts. It's horrible to find or read with the current formatting.

And IMO: The cartels vanguard isn't only good with psyops to capture enemy vehicles. Due to its stealth it's also ideal to capture deep base buildings, because he doesn't reveal while capturing.
