So, since my last competition was pretty much a discussion, I'll now close that and move over to this general colony discussion (the others are all specific)

TALK ABOUT ANYTHING RELATED TO COLONY (and beef burgers)

Not unclear, like it doesn't explain that whether in numbers or just alone is good at taking down an army.

Usually when it's good at taking 1 or 2 without much damage, it's good at taking an army. I mean, a phantom is good against romans, any number.

Well sure they may be good, but if for that fact 1 phantom vs 20 romans, your going to lose the match before your phantom destroys all the romans since romans can take several phantom bullets and mow down the base if your opponent doesn't do anything else.

The best counter for romans is tanks

Yes, but I'm pretty sure you'll be more alert than to not do anything if 20 romans are charging. We don't need to point the obvious.

In earthquake that's true... In normal, that is not. Blackqueens and missiles would be the most logical choice for romans since blackqueens and missles destroy every ground unit in one blow except hover tanks, sakata mk II, and gladiators.

Rocker, not true.
Air units are better because romans can still attack tanks.

Question:
Hover tanks have splash?

Yes indeed they do, but they have very small splash radius compared to a chronite tank. Maybe kill 3 infantry in a 20 infantry army per shot. Still, splash is what changes chronite tanks the most ideal choice for infantry.

Chronite tanks do have better splash ideal for infantry but hover has higher rate of fire

Yes which makes chronite tanks the best at destroyoing infantry units (besides snipers). Because in a 20 infantry army, chronite tank might be able to destroy the infantry in 1 single blow (perhaps 2). Making it shorter than for a hover tank to destroy the same sized army.

That is a good point

Black queens, of course, kill all infantry, chronite tanks and groditz in one hit.

well the black queens can be easily killed by large numbers of aa guns unless there covered by snipers or hovers

And a large number of AA guns get owned by hover tanks.
Hover/Black Queen is the best outpost combo (groditz also helps against air units)
