As an Indy you don’t need to stockpile on the primary server. Just keep attacking until about 10-12 days left (about now), and cash turns for the remainder. Sometimes you run out of safe targets to hit earlier than that, and that’s ok.
Important thing for your strat is keeping up with your tech. You should try your best to keep these important tech levels all set long:
If you’re falling behind, it’s better to do one less grab that day and focus on selling the extra jets to buy tech. Once your tech falls behind, it’s hard to catch back up. Stay efficient all set long.
Personally I like doing a tech start, and get all my relevant techs maxed before I grab. I’m usually 5,000 acres behind the lead when I do convert my labs to indies and start grabbing, but I make that up in no time, and usually end up way ahead by running efficiently all set long.
If you choose to tech start, I found the most effective way is to get 40bpt with 3800 labs. Tech to max your: bus/res/Indy/warfare/mil.strat/weapons
By then you have to convert back to indies and get grabbing.
-With the mil strat you get 35% more acres per grab
-that bit of warfare will provide you all the missiles you need all set long to ward off multitappers.
-the bus/res at 168% or not will keep you in positive cash flow all set long until the end.
-weapons tech is your 2nd most important tech since it allows you to send 40% less jets per grab letting you grab more and sell more to build and buy tech.
-Indy is easy your most important tech
-as the set goes on you need to start buying military tech, since your military will be so huge, you need it to lower your expenses.
It’s inefficient to sell troops and tanks, just make what you need and sell the jets/turrets only.
I usually set production all set long to:
And 80% jets/turrets
That will give you a good enough spal to not be losing tons of spies to failed ops, and have more tanks than most everyone in the game to protect from ABs.
Do that and you can easily PS 3-5x a day all set long and grow huge.
