With the release of player bases and their new orbital strike hammer of the gods power. Player made bases are now critical to winning the continents of Auraxis.
I have noticed that the most influencial bases are either one of 2 things.
1: Part of a victory core domination strategy where the objective is to steal all the cores and house them in numerous barely there bases.
2: One fortress base built with great care in an ideal location that dominates and entire front line.
The core spamming strategy requires a full squad of guys with a minimum of base building items and excellent knowledge of base building to steal the enemy’s cores. This strategy can be countered and should be countered by the second fortress strategy but there is not always someone online with the items or skill to house the core in a safe generator.
The fortress strategy is incredibly powerful but takes a large commitment of time ideally from the beginning of the continent. Try to place your base in a choke point along a lattice so that the enemy must confront the base before moving on. Having your anti vehicle turrets overlooking primary sunderer placements is ideal for forcing the issue.
Once you have this you must know the enemy will try to setup either a glaive or an orbital striker to neutralize your base and you must think ahead and have a plan to counter. One way is to patrol around and annihilate enemy ants and construction crews. You can also setup your own orbital striker first so that any attempt to nuke your base is met with your nuking their base first.
There are very many details to go into but rest assured the play style is very very fun high tempo and quite rewarding in certs. DocAmmo and myself are acquiring a great deal of expertise in this area please track us down if you need help.
Keep up to date or you will be dominated.

And most importantly there are new ANT exterior cosmetics.
My planetside attendance is sporadic during the week but if we had a dedicated ‘Base Building Night’ each week I would be interested in setting up bases and stealing cores by stealth.
