1) Try and keep alive on both sides of the map. Very important.
2) Grab the bonuses asap
3) Try and eliminate your opponents from one side of the map.
4) Don't rely on the NUKES. They are hard to conquer and only used when there are 2 players left and you each have a side.
5) You can not move players from one side to the other, so if you're eliminated from one side, that's it, you'll never get back.

Also from gtivan from the same thread,
escalate with 1 path. flat rate and non reinforcement can turn into long stalemates.

Yeah, playing Nukes on Flat Rate is just asking for pain

Escalite can also frequently turn into stalemate. Personally I only play Nukes! with small numbers (absolute MAX of 6), usually 2v2 or 1v1, and ONLY escalate. The reinforcement is not quite as important, although none reinforcement can be problematic. One path isn't really a killer...


One point from the first post, it is very common to use the nukes in other games other than when 2 players are left, 2v2 team games often turn into a struggle to see who can nuke the other side first.


One thing that new players should note, you can't reinforce onto or off of the missiles.

Once you have the bottom of the missile, can you deploy troops there to continue arming the missile?

It's the only way to move up the missile, Luis. Always deploy to the last missile you took, in order to get the next one, .... Just keep in mind that, whatever troops are too left once you have reached the top of the missile - you can't reinforce away. They stay there and become "sleeping troops".

When you play teams, is it possible to launch if one of your teammates has the premier / president and a different teammate has the target? If so, who can launch? The player that has the missile or either one? I need an answer in the next 23 hours!

Thank you!

the same person must have president/premier, target AND the missile loaded...only that one person can do this...the rest of your team should be on KGB/CIA or NSA/GRU. hope that helps! good luck!
