I just dont understand how amphbots fight reavers, or even cloakbots for that matter. People seem to love to complain about how cloakbots are countered by amphbots, but I just don't see it. Cloakbots can greatly strengthen their armies for such low cost, meanwhile its extremely fucking expensive for amphbots to make a remotely strong army that could still frankly be countered extremely easily by a cloakbot opponent.

In most games, the biggest offender for this interaction is reaver. Amphs have no easy counter to reaver. reavers can be mixed in with glaives, and its almost impossible for amphs to deal with them at all. Sure, lots of bulkhead can be hard for reaver to attack into, or a ball of bouys could skirmish reaver, but these are very expensive, over the top counters to such a low committal amount of reavers, mixed into an army. I am not sure what I am doing wrong here, I've had multiple games where a reaver is made, and I'm just trying to find a unit I can possibly MAKE to even deal with it. i know porc is supposed to kill reavers, and I suppose aggressive porc can work to even take space before reavers can be feilded, but its so incredibly easy for cloakys to counter porc that I'm really lost as to what I'm supposed to do when I see a reaver. I would like some addition insight on this issue, as I clearly just cannot comprehend what I'm supposed to do...

wouldnt archers be good vs glaives and buoys vs reavers? (they seem to be slow enough to get hit and once they do get hit they're dead)
a limpet or two could also help
im not good a video games or anything, just theorycrafting

Remember that amph has one of the most powerful units in the game: Limpet.

Limpet slows Reavers down enough that Bouys can hit them!

Without that? Yeah, reavers played by someone who knows they need LoS to dodge (and makes units appropriately) thrashes amphfac.

At 8:50, you made your first combat unit that was not a duck. By this point, Kaki has produced 1.6k more metal than you have.
