#1 Sometimes two structures are better than one: Double your refineries or barracks to double production speed.

#2 Select units, then press the G key for guard mode. They will behave more defensively.

#3 Need to get back to your construction site fast? The H key will reposition the screen right over it.

#4 The N key moves your viewport to the next unit. This way you can easily locate scattered or lost items.

#5 Jesse's Decoy Maneuver is a devastating attack that will work on any foe. Once. Create a decoy force to engage your enemy. Then send an APC loaded with Engineers into their base.

#6 Use this handy trick when your Infantry are grouped together and a heavy vehicle is bearing down quickly, threatening to squish them: Select the group and hit the X key to scatter them. Repeat as needed.

#7 Flying units are impossible to select once deployed. Before sending them out, first create a team: Select the units, then press Control-1 (or 2-9). Press the 1 key at anytime to select Team #1 as needed.

#8 The key to eliminating an Obelisk without being eliminated first is to take out its power supply. Remember, without sufficient power, the Obelisk can do nothing.

Murphy's Top 10 Laws of War

  1. If the enemy is in range, so are you.
  2. The enemy invariably attacks on two occasions:
    1. When you're ready for them.
    2. When you're not ready for them.
    3. Try to look unimportant; they may be low on ammo.
    4. The enemy diversion you've been ignoring will be the main attack.
    5. Never draw fire; it irritates everyone around you.
    6. Never share a foxhole with anyone braver than yourself.
    7. Exceptions prove the rule, and destroy the battle plan.
    8. When you have secured an area, don't forget to tell the enemy.
    9. If it's stupid but it works, it isn't stupid.
    10. There is always a way.
