Hi all... New to Ruse and love the game aswell as the online community thats here for it.

Now for the Q: What is the best counter to Longtom/artillery?

I've spent the last 5-6 games just trying to deal with American teams and the constant rain of Longtom. I've countered using different tactics such as armored rushes and even air strikes, each with different levels of success.

So what do you guys do when arty starts dropping on your base from across the map?

Camo net your base, make sure he has no recon near your base then move on his arty with a balanced armoured column (assuming he has air defences near the arty, which is likely). Armour is pretty much invulnerable to arty, so tank push up to it.

What's really important with camo net is to either not have unconcealed units in your base or use radio silence as well.

I was playing 2v2 with a mate the other day, and we came under heavy arty rain. So I dutifully camo net my base only to have my team mate park 2 units right amongst my buildings. I didn't notice until all my buildings died to splash damage http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I played a 2v2 earlier and my partner purely built artillery and AA, he wasn't accepting my chat invite either so i was forced to build tons of tanks and recon.... It was all quite an un coordinated mess but we somehow won through pure German perseverance.

I always use a combination of light/medium tanks with recon and if he has Air, some mobile anti air to defeat an artillery spammer

decoy units/buildings
air units
rush (use infantry/armor/recon and break the line and destroy the mortar.)

make sure to destroy recon units.

It is isolated sugestion:
Fighter or Fighter bombers as quick solution for enemy recon. In arti situation recon usualy are at front of formation without AA suport .

Best way is to cut them of from supplys before they can afford Longtoms http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
