Mission 041: Hold Me Back!

Thanks to last month’s participants! You can check out their reports here!


I’ve been playing a lot of Steel Phalanx lately, and what’s really become clear to me is that each named character hits like a big rig with no brakes.

You can really shape your opponent’s deployment by deploying a named character or two, just threatening particular avenues of advance. The problem though is that if your opponent can see it coming, they probably can figure out a way to blunt or stop your attack. So don’t let them see it coming! This month’s mission is all about holding things in reserve so you give away less information about where your key attack pieces or even ARO pieces will be coming from.
