Funny tactics!

I've had some really hilarious moments with Ordos armies.  

I've deviated a harky flame tank sitting next to a large group of infantry and watched it turn on them!  ;D

This is also a clever little trick you can use with chaos lightning...  I discovered it by first attacking the enemy base with EITS but not succeeding in annihilating the enemy constuction yard.  However, some of the saboteour explosions revealed the location of a group of about 6 Feydakin right outside his crippled cyard....  I proceeded to chaos lightning the group of now cloaked feydakin, hoping they were still in that position...  they were!  Now because friendly feydakin cannot hurt each other with their weirding modules, in their berserk state they turned on surrounding structures!  Bye bye Cyard!  ;D

Anyone else got any Ordos funny stuff they wanna share?

laser tank versus leech: If you circle a group of leeches with a laser tank, they are toast.

hit devastators/sonic with chaos lightning, If it is near conyard or something else important...

run a dust scout at a devastator and escort, after the units kill the dust scout, move in a deviator to hit and run the devastator and deploy it. Also works with mino and snipers/feds

This is anti ordos, but if you leech a kobra it cannot deploy.

lol, you underestimate the deviater (like most players do)

the deviater has 1. more range.

2. the devastaters missiles wil only take it the shield or less!!!

3. the devastater can't escape cus its too slow.

4. circling around an devastater isn't a VERY smart thing to do for the ordos.

This would work for Atreides too but everyone likes the Ordos so...

Engineer a Harkonnen conyard then quickly pack it back into an MCV and airlift it out with an advanced carryall (It helps if you have distracted or destroyed enemy units first). Then what you COULD do is build enemy units and have the fun of watching them flame their pals, but what I prefer to do it build a palace then death hand part of their base with no buildings but which units cross a lot. Especially infantry. The irony of dying from their own house's atomics is just wonderful. And then with the green stuff left over outside a barracks....love it.

He he, yes, every infantry unit that come from there with turn himself dead ;D

Its funny to put chemical troops in enter of barrack too.

Once Harks sent me deva with AC. I was watching AC and observe where is landing, went there with deviator and deviated deva. THen I took mine AC and go with it to enemy base. THeir own unit destroyed them buiding after they killed it.

Obliterating a house with their own units has to be one of the most fun ironic things this game can provide. Harkonnen Death Hand affects Harkonnen units, and Hawk strike doesn't effect Atreides units, does the Chaos lightening affect Ordos units? Your own that is.

Another fun thing to do is to put a conyard near the enemy base and then slowly build turrets moving into it. It sometimes takes a while but you don't need to worry about power since once you've built a new lot closer to the base you can sell the last lot.

i was playing the ord campaign and 2 mongeese  were walking to my base di rectly infront of a sonic tank. my deviator went up infront of the mongeese where it took two hits but its shields heldthen the sonic got into range and blasted the to mongeese apart for me. then i jut moved out of the way.

this would probably work better withdusties

if playing against a turtle with sonic tanks stupidly behind their main line, walk a few dusties up to the main line the sonic tanks will fire and destroy a couple of things for you. also works with scouts as the minos will destroy the infantry front lines

well thats not very nice!

you should at least give the player a chance

Only if they're new and have never played anyone online before. Like me. But I don't think I ever could so I never bother asking in advance. Otherwise, smash 'em.

I was picking up harvesters and moving them with carryall very near infantry on spice field. Then, if troops did`t shot it down (or it were not anti-air), harvesters were close enough to kill them. :-/

heh? what do you mean?
