Hello. I’m running a (fairly successful!) Dimensional Doorways league. One of my locals is intent upon running more or less faction-pure with Empire of the Apes, based mostly on aesthetic reasons.
I’m totally fine with that reason, mind you!
I want to offer him as much help as I can while allowing him to work within his constraints. I have a pretty good sense of the advice I’ll give him – I mean, there are only 3 total monster pairings in question! – but I have a bit of a gap when it comes to personal experience with Apes. (His Gakura is the first Gakura I’ve ever seen in person, for example.)
I wanted to ask for some advice in case somebody has some interesting tactics or strategy that I haven’t considered. I’m willing to give a slight amount of purchasing advice, but generally only buildings, and a limited number of buildings, at this point in time. Try to keep the building suggestions as generic as possible. (So, nothing like “If you play Hondo, take 4 Tokyo Triumphs.” )
His collection includes more or less the following:
At least one of every Empire of the Apes unit blister, possibly two each for the Gunners and Bombers.
He also has a G-Tank & Repair Truck pack. They’re very much already on my “You know, if you want to put just a few non-Ape units in…” list.
His non-Apartment buildings include:
GUARD Defense Base
I’d appreciate any thoughts you have!
