How valid is spam in Conquest?

Postby Bryan » Mon 11 Nov 2013 13:11

Just curious...
I am talking CATC stuff like T-55s, T-72s, BMP-1s or any cheap stuff you can reliably spam en-masse and overwhelm your enemy in conquest.


Does it work?
What units suit you best?
How would you do it?
What maps suit it best?

1 leopard 2A4 can`t rape 40 t-34/80. He out of ammo. :lol:

As pointed out it would probably run out of ammo, but even ignoring that I'm fairly certain you just did it wrong. Did you just attack-move them across a field or something? Because that would be wrong. Although doing pure t-34 vs leo would probably result in being kited, simply spamming a single unit type at its own hard counter would also be wrong.

Well, depends. On what you spam (did I say OP reservists? Oh, sorry, it went out alone)(but more generally, some units are more cost/efficient than other; and AA spam is not the same thing as tank spam); on where you do it (spammed tanks are very likely to be sitting ducks if you send them in the open), and of how you do it: smokescreens, surprise, speed, psychology...).
IMO, tank spam is viable only against infantry (send these Danes TO VAHALLALA!), or to swarm a position by surprise, or in the optic of emptying enemies ATGMs. Inf spam... Well... Helo spam is nowadays a no-no, except against noobs, airspam will worth you or defeat or banishment with tarring and feathering, so all I think is good is AA spam and ATGM spam (up to 24 kunkurs in a cat B deck <3 )

Im a huge fan of the cat c deck. Using lower end requires strong tactics. The mob across plains doesnt work. The trick is to get the t34 's as cloese as possible either through smoke or forests. Another strong tactic is backing your mob with high end atgm's. Really to "spam" just requires good playing otherwise its more like the salvation army.

but Su22M4 is not in an 75-era-spam-deck. the opportunities are very limited.
nonetheless you have to invade with massive bombersquadrons. my favorites are intruder and su-7. you get five of this.

It`s not competitive, but I always have a lot of fun with cat C, motorised(Nato, that is). A load of Planes, with only few drawbacks(cmon, who relies on tanks anyway in cat C...).

Groundspam is possible to pull off against weaker opponents (then you). But even then, you need to know what you are doing and choose your attackpoint wisely.

In 1v1 however it seems to be quite effective, in the top 10 there are 2 guys who only play 1975(place 2 who changes his name after every game... and asket, whatever place he is now.) they try to just overrun you, and if that doesn`t work they try to win in an attrition battle, eg. kill all Tracked Rapier FSAs and just bomb you all the time, with a tomcat+ F4 wildweasel to kill planes.
