Guide feature request for build orders in the guide that are much more succinct. ie.

"Cavalry Charge":
4x Miners
Field Yard
Mining platform (Dilithium)
Field Research
Mining platform (Tritanium)
B'rel x2

Even shorter eh? Should I put a pop up or something at the head of the strategy in that case? :)

Actually, the build icon next to each ship/station to build might be nice if the text size could match up with it.

Build order layout iteration 2. (I kinda like the 'this is what you build', 'this is what you think' separated into two side by side columns)

"Cavalry Charge"
Build[align=left]Strategy[/align]
4x Miners
Field Yard
Mining platform (Dilithium)
Field Research
Mining platform (Tritanium)
B'rel x2
...Harass, harass, harass. Do not go head to head until you hit mid game ships... blah blah blah

Ah hm. Wouldn't that be kind of difficult to tell what does what and when? I wanted to keep it simple, but not make it too hard for new (and old) players to understand. Do you think it would be ok if I just put a "simplified build order" somewhere - as I'm not too sure someone could understand, for instance, a Dominion build order with that sort of listing  :blush:?

I'm definitely planning to put images there next to the relevant units/structures (I'll start doing so soon), I just heard so many complaints about strategy that I went ahead and "announced" that those were up without fleshing them out properly  :blush:

I'll also add more description of tactics to use at various stages in the game, but I'll try to keep it as short as possible because most stuff should be addressed in the Unit Analyses sections :)
