Survive 5v5 map as Aeon

0

5x5 land map, you are Aeon, your opponent is not Aeon. How do you survive?

Your tanks are weak and have a chance only if you babysit them, they die to a pass of any bomber, your bombers can't kill enemy tanks in 1 pass.

Is the only solution to not be Aeon?

Have you considered the training channels in discord? I would imagine there are people there who could spend time with you helping you learn a few things. I myself never play Aeon because I am not good enough

I think the best way would be to give Aeon a proper tank and leave auroras as a toy for traversing water.

2 words: attack move

Make sure have scout with tanks, attack move tanks and keep scout behind tanks. If they rush in, move auroras back. Keep bombers off them, win game. Slightly lower apm than managing every move order and often times at lower levels your opponent won't even realize they're not shooting back. But yes, check out the gameplay and training channel as well as was suggested.

@melanol as much as I suck using this faction I wouldn't change it. The beauty of FAF is the factions and their differences.

The beauty of almost no one playing Aeon in 1v1.

Aeon are actually considered strong in small maps due to their range advantages.

But if you're just move commanding your auroras in without radar then its probably not going to work out so well for you.

Fine by me because I suck at defending against a well microed AEON army lol

10x10 navy map, you are cybran, your opponent is not cybran. How do you survive?

Your frigates are weak since they have the lowest hp of all the frigates. Torp bombers kill them quicker, torp def kills them quicker. They can't even shoot backwards!

Is the only solution to not be cybran?

What are you even talking about? Cybran frigates are best frigates.

@thewheelie Do you see a difference between death in 1 bomber pass from any faction while having a bomber that needs 2 passes for any other faction and small variations of cost, DPS, HP, etc.? Who put you into the balance team?

Aeon tank + acu combo has the advantage in many 5x5s.

He’s well aware that cybran frigs are strong. It’s kinda his point.

Edit: ftx beat me by a couple seconds 😞

On 5km, aurora are the worst if you don't babysit them and the best when you do babysit them

50% of people say aeon can't win on 5x5, 50% of people say aeon always wins on 5x5.

I can't comment on balance, but I always play Aeon and often hope to get a 5x5 map so I can definitely say that Aeon on 5x5 is not "unfun".

I think.... if you lose on 5x5 especially with Aeon you tend to lose quickly and can get to the next game. I like quick games, it might bias me.
