Pretty cool. I might try it since I have infiltrators finishing soon. The only thing I would say is that they are probably abandoned bases because it would be difficult to raid that fast on bases that have all the traps, town center defenders, and blesses without the need of any tactics. Still a good strategy.
It's true the commandos do not but seeing what was used, heavy infantry are also sprinkled in and I doubt they get a free pass. It shouldn't make a huge difference but they can spring the ambush traps and than you have more defenders to worry about. Again that only matter on bases that aren't abandoned.
The infantry are mostly just there to clean up the outskirts of the base for quick victory star. They don't really need to do much in the central area of base, so they won't trigger many traps. That area gets almost completely cleared by commandos, then the rest (non-defensive buildings) by fighters.
yeah it works. I've been attacked by a guy with 15 or 16 commandoes it he easily 5 starred me. Bigbrother how many medals do you have?
I'm 2400-2500 intentionally and I can get even biggers lots....recently I did my personal best with something like 1.5 milion gold 1.5 milion food 14 k oil in one hit.
It would be good as Tsamu said to know how much did you retrain...with crowns...
I run 12 infiltrators, 4 bazookas (upgrading to RPG now), 3 Greek Centaur tanks, and 13 infantry. I also run 6 fighters and 1 bomber. I'm currently running in to 3000-3200 medal range (I'm CWA lvl 265) and regularly take home 800k-1 mil of gold, same with food, and over 10k of oil per attack. I almost never use tactics, but if I do it is either a decoy or a betrayal to keep troops occupied. I will typically lose most of the infiltrators because I don't use tactics to distract the troops, and the ground troops almost always die by the end of the battle due to traps. I could probably keep more alive if I paid more attention. Retrain is usually less than 2k oil, and about an hour which I am ok with. A net of 8k usually (or better) is fine with me since I almost never have citizens available to do anything with all this loot. For what it's worth, with the Dominations bonus my best is 22K oil and over 2 mil of food and gold in one attack.
In low medals you won't loose much. I use 14 commandos and 11 bazookas. and i will go anywhere between 2000-3000 medals. I'm not sure which medal range bigbrother is in but theres plenty more oil in 2000-3000. It is an effective raiding strategy but you will loose on average 1-4 commandos and 2-6 bazookas. And occasionally a plane or 2, depending on base. With oil looting boost from museum I've been able to hit a space age base (im CWA) and get around 16-19k oil in one hit, not counting the domination bonus. So 25k oil in one hit is enough for me to not care if i loose troops.
