Personally, I prefer being a Capitalist to make enough money to supply the money I need to build the buildings that make my resources.

The problem is, is that all of you say "Scouts, Marines, Romans, Tanks!" as the fastest and quickest way to win. The thing is, is that Scouts die easily if in groups of less than fifteen and it takes even longer to build fifteen Scouts. Plus, just forty Marines and your 15 Scouts have been exploded. Not to mention the Anti-Air Sakatas, they will take them out easy. Scout rush isn't for me, and don't tell me do it at the VERY beginning because I've already tried that.

The Problem with Marines is the die by the tens. Unless you get them in an EXTREMELY concentrated line, they will almost certainly get killed just by the basic base defence weapons. Not only that, just two Chronite Tanks can take out 100 Marines.

Romans last longer than Marines but have a shorter firing distance and can't attack air units. Just three or four Scouts eliminate them before doing any real damage.

Black Queens are completely useless. You barely need twenty scouts to just decimate an entire legion of Black Queens (Ten Black Queens). They have very low health, take a lot of resources to produce, and do an almost insignificant amount of damage in large groups.

My Tactic:

Government: Capitalist

Deltrix: Hover Tanks, Grödits*, Snipers*
Partner: Sakatas MK-II, Sakatas, Scouts*

*Secondary/Tertiary Unit of Choice

Now, the reason why I choose it, is because basically, it's all ground! My Hover Tanks protect the Sakatas repair themselves. Any air resistance can be taken out by the Sakatas. Now, a problem I have to address is this, there will be enemy Phantoms in the sky and I need Sakatas to take them out, but there are ground units! I need Hover Tanks to take them out, but I only have Chronite Tanks! What do I do? Marines. They provide body bags for the Phantoms and they do some damage to enemy ground units. Their main purpose is to shield the Sakatas. The Sakatas defeat the Phantoms and I send Chronite Tanks to finish the ground units up.

The problem is, is that I don't have enough time to make this happen.

I also would appreciate help on the Missions, it seems I'm on Level 5 and I cannot destroy the units fast enough. I always run out of energy. Should I use Banks instead of Solar Grids?

Making waves of anything would work if you send in enough troops with the waves. The problem I find is as soon as I start one strategy, my opponent counters it, and I've lost the match.

A player going Romans Sakata-MKII (Anti-air sakata) Will beat that.

Sakatas are cheaper and build faster, so they win over phantoms, and Romans works as meat-shield, even taking some of the dmg from the phantoms as the sakatas do their job, and romans then group up, kill your sakatas, and then your base.
+ there is so many variables, depending on his and/or your friend. Thats what i like about colony, there IS NO "do this and win" strategy, it is all about adaption to your opponents strategy, and outsmarting your opponents. Love it ^^

... A missle destroy Both Sakatas And Phantoms. a little mk can destroy both phantoms, and some hovers destroy all the Sakatas.

The End
If anyone put a queen up, i just need make a spinx and the queen run away. if they put a tank, they will be busy making some phantoms. so, i make more tanks and KABAM!, or i make some far snipers and PLIM!!

The end, one more time.
