1. Basic Overview
---------------------------------------------

Metal Fatigue is one of the best RTS games out there. It's story takes place 
when 3 brothers get caught in between a major war between the corponations. It 
is a game where you must use strategy and brute strength to win the game. You 
have the options of building Combots, mobile walls, tanks, missile cars, nemesis 
trucks, artillery units, hover trucks, and Drill Trucks. ( See Units Section for 
detailed information. ) Your hover trucks can also build airports, research 
stations, AI Facilities, and more stuff ( See Buildings Section for detailed 
information ) . You can also amputate your enemy combot's arms. You can even 
install it to your own combot and use it against them!

Each unit has their own defese/attack damage meters. Mil-Agro Attacks are mostly 
Kinetic Based, and their defenses are mostly Energy Based. Neuropa Attacks are 
mostly Energy Based, and their defenses are mostly Kinetic Based. Rim-Tech 
attacks and defenses slightly lean over on one side or the other, so you have to 
be carefull when you build your combots.

So now you have been briefed.

So now get ready for a heapload of fun!

---------------------------------------------
2. Rim-Tech Overview
---------------------------------------------

Rim-Tech is a corponation that is not as violent as the others. Their primary 
mission, as with the other corponations, is to regain control of hedoth prime. 
Their side missions are to obliterate any other obstacles in their way.

Rim-Tech units are easy to control and make. Their Combot technology is not as 
advanced as Neuropa or Mil-Agro but they are adequate. At the hands of an 
experienced player. Rim-Tech can be a very brutal corponation to come up 
against. Although they are not as powerfull as the other corponations, you 
should never underestimate them.

---------------------------------------------
3. Mil-Agro Overview
---------------------------------------------

Mil-Agro is a very brutal corponation. Their primary mission is to destroy 
basically anything that moves. And they have the technology to do just that. 
They target Rim-Teach and Neuropa forces while they try and take over hedoth 
prime. They are very violent and should NEVER be taken lightly.

Mil-Agro units are easy to control. Although the parts take a little time to 
make, they are worth it. Most of Mil-Agro's combot parts are designed to 
destroy. Their units are so powerful, that they can exploit even the smallest 
weakness in your defenses. 

---------------------------------------------
4. Neuropa Overview
---------------------------------------------

Neuropa is a corponation that wants to keep hedoth technology to themselves. 
They are the most advanced corponation of the three. The Neuropa Combots can 
literally go past your defenses without you even knowing ( literally ) . 

Neuropa combots are pretty much meant for experienced users. Their combot parts 
take a little longer to make, but they are definately worth it. Neuropa is my 
favorite corponation. In the hands of a master, lets just say you wont last 20 
minutes ( need time to make the combots ^_^ ).

---------------------------------------------
5. Hedoth Technology
---------------------------------------------

The target of every corponation. This technology is far more advanced then 
Neuropa's. Their combots are so strong that I advise you to stay away. Even 
their tanks can demolish combots in seconds. THey have alian enhancers, and 
defense enhancers that you can capture during a specific mission. If you capture 
an alien combot, then you are the most powerful player out there. If you manage 
to manufacture 3 alien combots, you can probably obliterate a heavily defended 
enemy bases with those 3 combots ( depends on how guarded they are ) . If you 
want to be the strongest player on the field. Try and capture as much Hedoth 
Technology as possible ( if there are any out there ).

---------------------------------------------
6. Combots
---------------------------------------------

Combots are the main units in the game. You decide on how they are built. 
Depending on your technology level, you can customize it any way you want. If 
you have all the technologies acquired for Neuropa, you can have a combot with a 
Camoflauge Torso, Electro Blades, Homing Missiles, and Power Pulse Legs. 
Translation ::: You have a virtually invisible combot with homing missiles ( 
which obliterates Hover jets and Bombers ) and a sharp Electro Blade ( which can 
do major damage ) with legs that emit a blast that damages any enemy unit around 
it. That is what a combot is. The best part is, you decide how its built.

---------------------------------------------
9. Meta-Joules
---------------------------------------------

Meta-Joules are the primary energy source in the game. They can be acquired in 
two ways. The first way is to mine them from lava pits. Each lava pit is limited 
in the amount of meta-joules it has. You can find meta-joules in the surface or 
underground. The second way is to build Solar Panels. You can use solar panels 
to convert the solar energy to meta-joules. It is better to use solar panels to 
get your meta-joules since you would "never" run out of meta-joules this way.

Each unit/building/combot part requires a certain amount of meta-joules. If you 
dont have the meta-joules required to build these units/buildings/combot parts, 
they will not be built ( obviously ) . 

---------------------------------------------
10. Man-Power
---------------------------------------------

In conjunction to meta-joules, units/buildings also need a certain amount of 
man-power. If you have 0 man-power you can't build any more units. However, you 
can still build buildings. Theses buildings, however, will not function at 
optimum performance. So it is important that you have a good supply of man-
power. The more man-power you have, the faster units and buildings will be 
built. So the more, the better. ^_^

---------------------------------------------
11. Types Of Players
---------------------------------------------

In the time that I have been playing, I have seen 5 types of players. Turtles, 
Vultures, Moles, Eagles, and Pitbulls. I have named them according to the style 
that they play. I will aslo explain how to defeat these types in section 15, How 
To defeat your opponents.

Turtles		

These players are very defensive. They make sure that their base is HEAVILY 
defended. They will not leave their base until they are positive that their base 
is practically invincible. Once this has been accomplished. They will then 
assemble a crapload  ( up to 20 ) of combots to seek and destroy you. 

Vultures	

These players tend to hide. They try be out of the way when there are more then 
2 players envolved. They will try to pick up severed combot parts and use it 
against you as much as they can. They will also try to use Neuropa's Cloaking 
Technology to sneak in your base without you noticing. Then when they are 
confident they have enough combots in your base they attack.

Moles		

These players tend to build a second base underground. They will make their way 
under your base, and then build 2 or 3 vehicle factories. When they are 
confident they have enough ground units, they will build an elevator to the 
surface and start to attack your base from the inside. Their underground base is 
usually HEAVILY defended. 

Eagles	

These players tend to take over the entire orbit first. Then they work on the 
surface. They also overuse the jetboots/jetpack torso technology. They will 
equipt the majority of their combots with some kind of flying mechanism. Then 
they will fly to your base. They usually send air units first then the ground 
units. They try to use their air units to "soften" you up, then the ground units 
to finish you off.

Pitbulls

These players tend to be highly agressive. In the beginning of the game, they 
tend to send 3 to 5 combots at your base. If those combots get destroyed, they 
start to really mass produce combots. When they are confident that they have 
enough combots, they will then raid your base. They will attack you when you 
least expect it. They will also build assembly bays as near to your base as 
possible. 

---------------------------------------------
12. How To Defeat Your Opponents
---------------------------------------------

In this section I will tell you how to defeat the 5 types of players, Turtles, 
Vultures, Moles, Eagles, and Pitbulls.

Turtles

In order to defeat them you really have to over power them. From the beggining 
of the game. Mass produce combots and any other military units. You especially 
need missile cars and nemesis trucks. Once you have about 15 or more heavily 
armed combots, and your army of units, start launchin recon salvo's to find out 
where your enemies are. Once you find them, send your army there. First send 
your combots, then trailing behind them, the tanks, then trailing behind the 
tanks, the missile cars, then trailing behind the missile cars, the nemesis 
trucks. If u like, send artillery units as well.

Vultures

In order to defeat them you have to build recon poles in and around your base as 
soon as possible. That will prevent them from sending cloaked units into your 
base. The best way to destroy them is to make sure that they are destroyed 
first. Forget about the other players, just aim for the vulture type player. 
Also, you need to destroy/collect all of the severed combot parts. That will 
prevent the players from increasing their power.

Moles

These players are just a major pain in the butt. Since you can't send combots 
underground, it is difficult to destroy their underground base because they are 
defended with a crapload of tanks. The best thing you can do is to have at least 
5 combots inside your base. That will prevent them from attacking from the 
inside. You should also have combots around your base. That will prevent them 
from attacking you head on. If you want to destroy their underground base. Send 
about 20 nemesis trucks and a couple of drill trucks underground. Nemesis trucks 
are weak but when they explode or get destroyed, they take tanks and missile 
cars with them.

Eagles

Two words, mobile walls. Mobile wall missile launcher units will obliterate 
anything that tries to come in from the air. The mobile wall cannon/laser units 
will take care of the ground units. But you still need 5 to 10 combots to 
protect your base, just in case. To weaken their presence at orbit, just use 
orbital bombs to destroy them.

Pitbulls

You just need to overpower them. These are the hardest players to come up 
against ( Thats why I call them pitbulls ). At the beginning of the game tryo to 
atleast have 3 combots. Then just mass produce combots, tanks, missile cars, 
mobile walls, nemesis trucks, and everything else you can think of. You should 
have your base practically invincible. Try to play like a turtle.

---------------------------------------------
13. Tips
---------------------------------------------

Here you will learn tips on how to make your base better and make it easier to 
kill your enemies.

1. Orbital Bombs take long to make, but make them! They are very usefull and 
they are very powerfull. They can also obliterate asteroids within impact.

2. Solar Panels gather 30% more energy when they are within a defense grid. 
Build a Defense Enhancer nearby.

3. You can build anything BUT Railguns and Assembly Bays underground. You can 
put all of your important buildings there. To protect them, put a couple of 
nemesis trucks there. Also, you can surround them with mobile walls for added 
protection.

4. The more Solar Panels the better. If you have enough solar panels, you can 
have an "infinite" amount of meta-joules.

5. It's always good to have a lot of combots.

6. When you have alies, its always fun to act like your sending your combots to 
their base for extra protection, then, you just break the alliance and start to 
attack him/her. Im mean. ^_^

7. Try to randomize your tactis when you play against a human. That way, he/she 
can't make a solid strategy when it comes to attacking you.

8. Don't underestimate the value of Recon Poles. They are quite helpfull.

9. Most things that take a long time to make are usually good.

10. Orbital Bombs are very powerfull and can also target the surface.

11. A Recon Salvo is excellent for finding out where your enemies are.

12. Bomber's are not only powerfull but when they crash, they also damage units 
in the immediate area.

13. If you have alot of units, it is better if you make those units attack a 
specific object. That will get the job done quicker.

14. Nemesis Trucks makes enemy combots immobile for a short period of time. 
Think about it.
