Hi, for a beginner like me, what are effective ways to spread my territory and hold it?
I did most of my SupCom competitive play in vanilla rather than FAF, so camping in your base and teching up was much more viable back then. FAF and Zero-K emphasize map control much more, and I never had a good grasp.
My instinct from single player TA days is "build some (flying) constructors and queue every mex point", but the AI raids so effectively in Zero-K that the constructors and mexes don't survive for long. I'm sure human opponents would be the same.
I've seen suggestions that you build a Lotus + Picket to deter single raiders, do people do this in ever expanding areas, or do people expand in a "expansion" style where they find a cluster of mexes and build a another fortified base?
