Shockwaves (Taurus) Channel walk-through, completed in 43.0 seconds

The strategy used here is very different from the used in a previous post on Channel. There are three differences in this strategy, they are:

  • Do not capture additional planets. The previous strategy relied on capturing the single planet nearest to the orange planet to prevent orange from trying to capture that planet. This strategy uses faux attacks on that planet to keep it away from orange.
  • Use the attack release method to get green to attempt to promote its planet.
  • Move excess units from destroying green by going to the left around the center planet. This allows you to use a faux attack on the single planet below orange to prompt orange to attack and destroy the weakened center planet.

Walk-through

  1. From 0:00 to 0:04, double your initial planet.
  2. From 0:05 to 0:16, send your units to a point near the green planet. For this strategy I normally use these units to attack the closest single planet to orange to get orange to double its initial planet. In this video orange doubled its planet before I could make that faux attack. You don’t want to send too many units near green, if your planet seems too weak, orange will attack.
  3. From 0:17 to 0:20, use the attack and release method to get green to absorb its excess units. You do this so that green will have fewer units available to reinforce its center planet when orange attacks.
  4. From 0:21 to 0:22, use your mass of units near green to attack the single planet closest to orange. This should prompt orange to attack the center green planet.
  5. From 0:23 to 0:30, send all of your units to a point near the green planet and then destroy the green planet.
  6. From 0:31 to 0:34, send the units remaining from destroying the green planet towards the orange planet by going to the left of the center green planet.
  7. From 0:35 to 0:35, use your mass of units to attack the single planet closest to orange. This should prompt orange to attack the remaining green planet.

When orange attacks the green planet, use all of your units to attack and destroy the orange planet.

Initially Channel can seem difficult, but when you start setting up a blockade to keep your opponents in their initial section, it gets quite a bit easier. With your opponents confined to their starting section all you need to do is attack them in the correct sequence and you should be able to get a very good time.

Walk-through

  1. From 0:00 to 0:05, double your initial planet and then wait until one of your opponents attacks the singleton between them.
  2. From 0:06 to 0:17, when one of your opponents attacks the center singleton, you need to start attacking and capture the singleton that the other opponent is most likely going to try to capture. You need to capture this singleton to keep both opponents facing each other and prevent either one from escaping through the force field.
  3. From 0:18 to 0:22, as soon as you capture the singleton, start sending the units from that singleton to your double planet. This is to discourage your opponents from attacking your double planet.
  4. From 0:23 to 0:29, when orange attacks the center green singleton, you need to start sending your units into the vicinity of the green double planet. You don’t want to actually attack the green double yet, you want it to keep sending reinforcements to its planet that is under attack until you have enough units there to destroy it.
  5. From 0:30 to 0:36, when you have enough units attack and destroy the green double planet.
  6. From 0:37 to 0:39, as soon as the green double is destroyed, send all of your units to your double planet. This is to discourage orange from attacking a weakened planet.

When orange attacks the green singleton, start sending your units into the vicinity of the double. Then when it seems that orange is about to destroy the green double, attack and destroy the orange double planet.
