Fleet ops has always had a wonderful guide that has has up to this point been text based only. And because not everyone has time or energy to read through the guide I've made a video tutorial.

The first one is about federation warp-in rush.

If anyone has made their own video tutorial feel free to post it below. I'd very much like this thread to become THE video tutorial thread for fleet ops.

EDIT: Here's the link to the entire playlist ... zgtg7ss3hr

I've made another one yesterday. This time a more standard opener with early warpins.

Great idea! Glad to see someone working on this. Mal did some of these a while back, as did Boggs and I, but I’m not sure if the videos even exist anymore, and if they do they are outdated. Let’s talk sometime and we can find a spot to put these on discord, along with a channel for discussion and questions.

thats great! :) can you do one shipyard at expansion going full uninterupted production with transition to warpins? I found its sometimes hard to balance the resource production when transitioning to warpins, so that you dont skip any production on your yard :)
Oh, and what about smooth transition from one yard to akiras and than to warpins for bigger games? thanks! :) :thumbsup:

As long as you have 2 dil and 2 tri moons with 1 shipyard you will never need to pause production on the shipyard. Enemy raiding will, slow your tech down. However if you have at least 1 moon being mined uninterrupted your ship production doesn't need to stop unless you want it to.
The problem is when you have 2 shipyards, in that case You will only save up between 50 and 100 dil per ship building cycle, assuming you don't get raided. Thus you will have to make a conscious decision whether you want more ships or faster tech. In the case you get raided (as is the case of any 1v1), you will definitely have to stop production in on shipyard to tech up.

I was doing some work with akiras yesterday for he upcoming akira rush video. Similar thing applies - as long as you have 1 shipyard with 2 dil moons and aren't getting raided too much it's a bit tricky, but it's possible to grab warp-ins without slowing your akira production. In real 1v1 you should, however expect slowdowns. The enemy will likely not idly watch as you grab akiras and tech up for warp-ins.

As fed you can do warp in rush with one yard and 5 miners and never need to pause production.

Fed can even get the dill needed to build a 2nd yard with just 5 miners and it not much slower then if you had an exp as you save money from exp like this and can kind of run 1 and a half yards with just 5 miners but if you on 2 yards you need 4 dill miners and 3 tri miners (MAYBE 4) to never need to pause production

TBH Mixed-tech is its own beast and to me feels a bit more like a quirky thing that only kinda works if you get left alone in a team game. I'm not exactly sure if I'm going to be mentioning it since I do it so rarely I don't really know how to execute it well.

For sure Mixed-tech is a 3v3+ only kind of build anything less it a little to slow
