Minefields (Andromeda) Levies walk-through, completed in 1:25.3

This is a modification of strategy used on a previous post on Levies. This is a complete change where we destroy the green opponent as soon as possible and then limit the planets that orange is able to spread to.

Walk-through

  1. From 0:00 to 0:02, double your initial planet.
  2. From 0:03 to 0:05, send some units towards the single planet below green and then send some units to the single planet above green. If green does anything but attempt to capture the top planet within its minefield enclave, start over.
  3. From 0:06 to 0:08, when green sends its units, redirect all of your units to a position near green.
  4. From 0:09 to 0:26, send some units from your planet to the partially captured planet within the green minefield. The units you are sending are going to pass over the mass of units you are building up. As they pass over that mass redirect them to join the mass. You don’t want any of your units to reach the partially captured green planet, but you want some always going there to prevent green from capturing it. When you have enough units near green, use the attack and release method to get green to attempt to double its planet.
  5. From 0:27 to 0:32, destroy the green planet. If by this time orange has captured a third planet, start over.
  6. From 0:33 to 0:45, redirect your units to the vicinity of orange, then start sending units from your planet to the single planet just above the initial orange planet. My best times have come when orange does what it does in this video and attempts to capture the single planet with units only from its initial planet. When that happens capture the single planet above orange.
  7. From 0:45 to 0:52, start sending units towards the partially captured orange planet. Before those units reach that planet redirect them to your single planet. You always want some of your units going towards the partially captured orange planet. When you have enough units on your single planet, use the attack and release method to get orange to promote its double planet.
  8. From 0:53 to 1:01, attack and destroy the orange double planet.
  9. From 1:02 to 1:12, redirect you units to a point above the remaining orange planet.
  10. From 1:13 to 1:19, when you have a good mass of units built up, start using units from your double planet to attack both the unoccupied planet in the orange minefield and the double planet just above the orange minefield. You are trying to force orange to either attempt to double its planet, or to send those units towards the single planet above its minefield.

When orange doubles its planet, attack and destroy the remaining orange planet.

Minefields (Andromeda) Levies walk-through, completed in 1:41.6

This is a modification of strategy used on a previous post on Levies. The modification gets more of your unit production at the center where it is closer to the battle.

Walk-through

  1. From 0:00 to 0:10, capture the planet in front of green. As your units are on the way, send a few units towards the top single planet. Your goal is to get green to capture the single planet below their initial planet. If green does anything different that what they do in this video, start over.
  2. From 0:11 to 0:32, capture and promote the center planet. If green does anything other than promote its initial planet, start over.
  3. From 0:33 to 0:39, you have two goals here. Collect your units on the single planet adjacent to the green double planet and force green to try capturing the topmost planet within its minefield.
  4. From 0:40 to 0:46, when green starts sending units to the topmost planet in its minefield enclave, destroy the green double planet.
  5. From 0:47 to 0:53, capture the single planet in front of orange. If orange has captured any planet other than its two minefield planets, start over.
  6. From 0:54 to 1:06, use faux attacks on the leftmost single planet to prevent orange from trying to capture it. Then, when green tries capturing another planet, destroy the remaining green planet.
  7. From 1:07 to 1:14, destroy the orange planet outside its minefield enclave.

How you proceed from here depends on what orange does. As a rule, I try to wait for orange to send units to try to capture or promote another planet and then destroy the orange planet the units have been sent from.

The key to levies is getting an opponent to throw away units trying to capture planets within the minefields, then destroy the opponent before they can complete the capture.

Walk-through

  1. From 0:00 to 0:02, double your initial planet.
  2. From 0:03 to 0:22, capture the planet just in front of the green planet. If green does anything but capture the single planet nearest orange, start over.
  3. From 0:23 to 0:32, capture the center planet. If green does anything but promote their initial planet, start over.
  4. From 0:33 to 0:37, send some units adjacent to the green double planet. Then, start sending units to the bottom planet in the green minefield enclave. This is the planet that green is most likely to capture next. Attacking this planet should prompt green to use units from its double planet to attempt to capture its other minefield planet instead.
  5. From 0:38 to 0:51, when green moves to capture its top minefield planet, destroy and capture the green double planet.
  6. From 0:52 to 0:59, capture the single planet between your initial planet and the orange initial planet.
  7. From 1:00 to 1:09, start sending units near the green planet, when green attempts to capture its minefield planet, destroy the green planet.
  8. From 1:10 to 1:17, start sending units to the unoccupied planet in front of orange’s initial planet. When orange moves to capture the planet you just destroyed, destroy the orange initial planet.
  9. From 1:18 to 1:28, position units above the orange double planet. When orange moves to capture the planet you just destroyed. Destroy the orange double planet.
  10. From 1:29 to 1:33, once again, destroy the orange initial planet. Orange is trying to finish capturing the planet it has already partially captured. You need to send some units there to prevent this.

All that is left is to destroy the remaining orange planet, while preventing orange from capturing an additional planet.
