If your approach to Epoch is that of capturing planets and building up a defense, it can take a long time and can get quite difficult. Early on, while playing Epoch and trying different things, both orange and green went into the wormhole at the same time and when they came out, their units run into each other and destroy some and scatter the others.
That was my eureka moment. I tried methods to force them to go into the wormhole and it would work, but he best time I could get was about 39 seconds, which I though was as good as possible until someone beat that time by more than a second. No matter what I tried I couldn’t get better than 39 seconds, until I made things as simple as possible. Which is the approach used in this video.
- From 0:00 to 0:16, double your initial planet and wait. If orange and green do anything other than both head for the wormhole at approximately the same time, give up and start over.
- From 0:17 to 0:25, here I notice that orange has about 60% of a planet captured so I need to prevent it from sending more units to complete the capture. So I start with orange and use the attack and release method to get it to absorb its units in an attempt to promote. As soon as orange does that, attack and destroy.
- From 0:26 to 0:37, fortunately for me green keeps absorbing any new units into itself so I can attack and destroy it rather quickly.
Notice that the green units in the wormhole are scattered. There are times when those units will coalesce and either attempt to capture a planet, or come back to the double planet that is trying to promote itself.
