So I've played a few skirmish games as well as two ranked MP games and I can't understand why am I so far behind everyone. The one player I played against in multiplayer tried to explain to me about tech lab but, didn't completely understand what he was saying as the game ended prior to that.
I've always been playing PHC is this faction weak or slow?
I start off by building the building that allows me to create military units and start pumping out 6 at a time, as soon as I get my first squad I send it out to start capturing radioactive resources and send an engineer to follow so it can build on it, this way the game unlocks those buildings/units.
While I'm doing that I take a second engineer and start placing metal mines on the various spots around my base.
I spend my first tech points on either weapon strength or logistics as I always appear low on units or low on overall strength.
After this I start to notice the enemy is quickly starting to expand and their power ranking is quickly surpassing mine.
I start to build medium units and the other human player in ranked games or Tough or better AI is starting to over power me with heavy units that I haven't even begun to think about producing not to mention even have.
What am I missing? How does one gain tech points? How does one build that many units that fast, I'm running out of resources and it seems they aren't?
Please help. Thanks
