As I’ve been playing more and more of 5th, I’ve come upon the realization that wise use of reserves is possibly one of the most underrated skills that seperate the new guys from the vets.
Now that every mission allows reserves, and the options they allow for outflanking (or just late game preservation of scoring/critical units), knowing how to make those reserve snap decisions is critical.
Its one thing to theorize in our comfy chairs, but the set of reserve decisions that take into account your army, the mission, who won the deployment rolloff and the foe is a tough thing to get a feel for when you’re in the hotseat at gametime.
~I’d like to hear how your break down that desicionmaking process and what you do to make your reserves give your army advantage. The floor is yours generals….
