    Yes. Space tall ships only btfo infantry scum.
    I am super bad at RTS ironically (feels like there's too much of an emphasis on micro... in the sense that one could conceivably teach an especially dumb and panic-y ape what to do in the same situation).

    So that said, is there a game in here for RTS mega-scrubs?

    Yes, but you'll get REKT when you run into someone who can micro you, and you should literally NEVER play multiplayer Eldar or Imperials

    Play Orks, facetank all the things, don't give two shits if win or lose so long there is dakka and explosions... Oh, and push random buttons at random times. Get all the abilities that stop people from kiting, because fuck that. Also target engines first on all the things.

    Against AI: just run them up the flank with the most cover while keeping your ships close to them (use movement instead of attack orders). Set every enemy ships "to target" critical systems as engines, specifically target enemy cap ships with boarders and Ram the shit out of anything that gets close. Something that can't catch your transports is no longer a threat. Don't let your ships get dragged away by auto-attacking a target, keep with the convoy. You need to prioritise dealing with threats to the convoy as they arrive over killing enemy ships.


    Against players: Try to guess where they will think your convoy will be and don't be there to gain some early breathing room. Bring lots of ships with CC effects. Pray.

    Against players I used to be sneaky sneaky and buy 6 escorts to masqurade as the convoy ships

    I'd park the real convoy in a cloud and then run them silent until they take the bait and go for the escorts. Then it's simply a race to the line.

    Was quite funny when you managed to pull it off.

    I don't know how easy it would be nice.

    My Imperial transports work as ghetto Sword-Class boats.
