Detour

Speed (Monoceros) Detour walk-through, completed in 46.5 seconds

Detour is different from all the other games where you only have one opponent.  It isn’t as simple as just getting the opponent to double up.

 

Walk-through

  1. From 0:00 to 0:05, send all of your units towards one of the planets that orange can attack, then continually send any newly produced units to the same planet.
  2. From 0:06 to 0:11, after orange captures the planet you aren’t attacking, redirect your units to an area close to the orange double planet.
  3. From 0:12 to 0:17, using the units that have built up on your initial planet, attack the singleton above and between the two orange planets.  Orange will try to use units from both of its planets to capture this one.  You need to deny this.
  4. From 0:18 to 0:22, when orange doubles up you need to be prepared to destroy its newly promoted double planet.  In this case orange didn’t quite get doubled up, but all of its units were absorbed into the planet, which made it easier to destroy.
  5. From 0:23 to 0:39, you need to assembly your units next to the orange singleton and send as many units as possible there.  Sending the units through the fastest path  possible certainly helps.

When orange makes its move to recapture the double planet, you need to attack and destroy its remaining singleton.
