Power Gain

The grade of success/failure for battles can be measured in power gain. One sums up the total power of all units the enemy lost and subtracts the total power of all own lost units. The higher the resulting number, the better the battle went. A superior commander always tries to aim for battles with the highest power gain possible.

Example:

  • Player A's casualties are 1 trooper, 1 tank and 1 bomber (total power of 1 + 2 + 3 = 6).
  • Player B's casualties are 1 trooper and 1 bomber (total power 1 + 3 = 4).

The battle was a success for player B with a power gain of 2.

Squad Counters

Any unit combination that beats another unit combination (of equal, one lower or one higher power) reliably and with a non-negative power gain, is considered a counter to this other unit combination.

You can read the counter table in the following way: squad vs counter squad => result => power gain.

Here are some of the more important counters.

In Plains

TrooperIcon.png1TankIcon.png1BomberIcon.png1 TankIcon.png2BomberIcon.png1 BomberIcon.png1 2

In Mountains

Squad Counter Squad Result Power Gain
TrooperIcon.png1TankIcon.png1 BomberIcon.png1 BomberIcon.png1 3
BomberIcon.png1 TrooperIcon.png2 TrooperIcon.png1 2
TrooperIcon.png2TankIcon.png1 TankIcon.png1BomberIcon.png1 TankIcon.png1 1
TrooperIcon.png1BomberIcon.png1 TrooperIcon.png2 TrooperIcon.png1 3
TankIcon.png1BomberIcon.png1 TrooperIcon.png3 TrooperIcon.png1 1
TrooperIcon.png2BomberIcon.png1 TrooperIcon.png3 TrooperIcon.png1 3
TrooperIcon.png1TankIcon.png1BomberIcon.png1 TrooperIcon.png2BomberIcon.png1 TrooperIcon.png1 2

These counters work if the counter squad flanks a non-flanking enemy squad.

This is valid in both plains and mountains.
