Blocked Entry

31 May 2000, tactic from MacMark
This is a nice annoying move.

Use a vehicle to block the entrance of an enemy Refinery. His Harvester won't be able to get in. Usually You can break his money flow this way very effectively. If doesn't watch his entire base he won't notice this. There's no "our base is under attack" warning because Your blocking vehicle will fire at the Harvester and not at his stuctures.

The counter for Your opponent is either to kill Your unit or to ally with You. If he allies with You, Your unit usually moves out of the way for his Harvester. But not many players are informed about this tricky move. Use Your knowledge advantage!
