Veil

Fog (Cygnus) Veil walk-through, completed in 1:45.7

Deny your opponent the planet they most want to capture on their first move. It took me a long time to apply that to Veil, but when I did, my times started improving dramatically.

Walk-through

  1. From 0:00 to 0:04, capture the single planet just to the right of your initial planet.
  2. From 0:05 to 0:21, use units from both of your planets to capture the double planet just visible on the edge of the fog directly to the right of the planet you just captured. Quite often, orange will attack this planet before you can complete the capture. When this happens, start over.
  3. From 0:22 to 0:30, promote the double planet you just captured. At 0:24 you can see that orange sends units to capture a planet below it. This is the move that orange makes when I’ve had my best times. Sometimes orange will capture the double planet just below the two planets you just captured. You can also get a good time when this happens. If instead of capturing another planet, orange moves to promote its top right planet, start over.
  4. From 0:31 to 0:47, try using the attack and release method to get orange to promote its double planet. I tried that here, but orange promoted its planet in spite of my attempts, not because of them. When orange moves to promote its double planet, you need to destroy and capture its planet.
  5. From 0:48 to 0:58, capture and promote the double planet on the far left. Promoting this planet burns off some fog and allows you to see more of your opponents.
  6. From 0:59 to 1:11, use the attack and release method on the lower left green planet. When green absorbs its units into that planet, destroy and capture that planet..
  7. From 1:12 to 1:22, first build up your units for the coming assault on green. When you have enough units destroy and capture the leftmost green planet.
  8. From 1:23 to 1:31, build up your units on the planet you just captured and wait until your opponents start attacking each other. When that happens, destroy the bottom green double planet.
  9. From 1:32 to 1:36, destroy the other green double planet.

From here you only have one planet of each of your opponents left to destroy. It’s best to destroy the orange double planet first, since it is the most likely to be able to capture another planet.
