There are two key components that form the basis of my approach on Crux. The first is there needed to be a way to get them to both make there first capture be on the back row so they are capturing a planet that will be destroyed by the gamma ray burst. The other component is that you destroy the orange and green triple planets just after they are promoted to triple status. Since it takes 300 units to build a triple planet and only 100 units to destroy it, you come out way ahead. The way you can get the best score is if green and orange promote their planets at the right time to enable you to destroy them in succession.
- From the 0:00 to 0:10, First, you use slightly more than half of your units to attack the singleton next to orange, then send the remaining units against the singleton next to green, while continually sending new units against green also. In this video it is green that first gives up and captures a planet on the back row, other times it will be orange. When green does that, redirect all units to capture the singleton next to orange and force it to capitulate and go to the back row.
- From 0:10 to 0:46, capture the three singletons on the orange side and build up units for the attack on the orange triple planet.
- From 1:00 to 1:21, build up units waiting for the gamma ray burst to pass, then let green move its units off of the triple planet and attack orange. At this point you need to destroy the green triple planet.
- From here on out, it’s just destroy the planets in the sequence that will hopefully prevent them from capturing another planet.
UPDATE: I’ve added another post on Crux where it only takes 1:34.5 to win.
