Mostly its better to produce units then worry about your base, especially on the harder settings despite the urge to do otherwise.

palying against the CPU i play defensive, and move slowly to each point with the full force of troops an hq, 2-3 tanks

It depends on the opponent for me, mostly i try to balance the two out.

As example: I played a CPU opponent on Vanilla DC five minutes ago, on hard, against Necrons (Random choice) and got spammed with Wraiths within 3 minutes. I lost
I tried again and only built a Chapel Barracks and one Generator. I had them on the run with just two Tactical Squads within three minutes.

Its resource/unit production rate and point capture rate is simply too Slow for me. I should probably play it more often.

Bah, i can still adapt to the changes, don't get your hopes up

yes, 50% faster for resources, 75% faster at constructing buildings and the point capture rates are 200% faster. Units depend on their relative power and cost. Its a better experience all round.

You also start with two units. No screwing around in FoK. The battles are big and messy, just the way thy should be. Whatever anyone else thinks, i prefer it.

The link is in this thread somewhere. Have fun
