newbie questions Thu, 29 November 2012 18:58
Just downloaded the game and I love my first two battles but I do have a couple of questions.

Why couldn't I use the my Ambush card? I tried to drag it on the field before the AI rolled for close combat but nothing ever happened.

Secondly, are there any online bonuses in this game for DoW purchases of other games?

thanks for the help

You have to "Arm" your Ambush card before you can use it. The use of Ambush is one of the only things you will want to watch the Tutorial for because it's different than a real-life game.

Basically the computer connection is too complicated for you to be able to drag it to the screen at the right time to play an Ambush, so you have to create an 'interrupt' for the game. Smile

Nope, there are no in-game bonuses that affect purchases of any kind. You can earn the achievements and advance in rank, but no monetary prizes are available.

Have fun, and welcome to the dark side!! Cool

I watched the tutorial but completely forgot about arming the Ambush card. I'll remember next time and thanks for the welcome.

No problem at all. The Ambush card is really the only one that is more 'video game' than 'board game'...because of the timing issue.

Also, you can pick if you want the computer to choose your Ambush Target or if you want to choose the target by going to the Settings area. Just know that if you choose to pick the target there will be a slight delay when an opponent does a close assault and you have the Ambush card...so he'll likely know that you have the card.

My friend says he lets the computer pick the target, but decides whether to activate it on the turn or not.

You may have to activate it before the opponent switches from "Move" to "Battle" phase. I think if you turn it off during the Battle Phase, turning it on again might not work that turn.

I haven't tested it that thoroughly but encountered problems that suggest this.

What do the symbols mean in the "?" column?

I am referring to the big asterisk/star, the one-guy symbol, and the two-guy symbol.

Thanks.

one guy: player is playing a solo game
2 guys: player is playing a multiplayer game.
nothing: player is in the lobby.
