  • Outposts provide 15 resources per turns

  • A general cannot move on any tiles already secured by any other units. Make sure your general always has a clear path to prevent him from getting trapped.
  • Regions formed from linking outposts together cannot go beyond montain tiles.

Startup Phase

Choose your startup location wisely. If you wish to play defensively, make sure there is the least amount of neighbor tiles to prevent your opponent from attacking from multiple locations all at once and do not forget to verify nearby costial tiles which might allow an easier way in for the enemy. If you choose to play offensively, you can attempt to secure a location closer to the opponent which could allow you to expend in multiple directions. If you judge that one location has to be controller as fast as possible to gain the upper hand, do not forget that you can use outposts to advance twice as fast.

Infrastructures

Remember to make sure to upgrade your secured tiles to facilitate your pushing capabilities every time you have extra resources. Base are extremely useful at increasing your forces however keep in mind that they are not invincible and once captured, the opponent will gain all the extra features at your cost.
