When you play multi player, what kind of battle plan do you use?
I'm not talking about playing with a team, where everyone has a role (unless you play with friends, that's kind of rare anyway). I'm talking about when you play 1v1, or when you play with more than one person, and there is no team plan.
I am more of a cautious defensive player. I'll usually make two battle groups consisting of tanks, anti air, infantry and one recon unit per group (plus a couple of supply trucks). I decide which command zone I want to go for, and send one of my battle groups to that zone.
The other battle group will act as defense for my original CV, then move to either support the first battle group (if I encounter heavy resistance), or move towards a the enemy command zone (kind of my offensive). Since a force that size isn't going to "sneak" past anyone, I usually delay their move until the battle field takes shape, then I know which areas are lightly populated and go that way.
I usually create a rapid response group with 4-6 attack choppers. I don't typically keep them in the fray, they are more of a hit and run unit. Plus, resupplying helos can be a pain. If my "team" can move the front toward the enemy side, I can set up an makeshift FOB closer to the action, and shuttle the helos back and forth.
As for recon, I am constantly deploying recon vehicles. My goal is to have recon all over the map. I keep at least one recon helo in the air at all times, and usually keep at leat one armed recon helo near the area of my first battle group.
Lastly, my original CV/FOB. I keep it coverd with AA and at least a small group of anti-tank units (typically infantry). Plus an inexpensive recon vehicle to sniff out anything that may get by my forward recon.
As you can see, I don't use much (if any) arty. I'll sometimes bring in a couple of pieces, but that's the exception. Usually, I don't bother with it.
My plan always sounds solid, and seems good in theory...but as you know, things change quickly. But, it's what I'm sticking with for now.
