I'm not very good at this game and have only played for a few hours.
But then these dragons showed up, and I have no idea how to kill them. Even when I made a tank with stone walls, lots of water, repair stations and tonnes of flak cannons, I get completely destroyed. Big time. I have tried with Zeplins but, they burned them all, instantly. Please Help.
Dragons aren't too hard if you abuse their weaknesses. Dragons have a short/small range and limited altitude so a high flying bomber can't be harmed by a dragon. A steel armored tank is mostly immune to flamethrowers so steel armor or altitude is some of the best counters.
Also don't use stone on vehicles, only on bunkers. Too heavy to be worth it.
Heavy artillery, position your ships to cover each other and get ready to flip them back and forth as the Dragons incessantly move behind your ships.
Then, once you've cleared out one dragon nest, you've cleared them all; so your dignity and pride should allow you to cheese with high-altitude bombers from then on out.
Sounds like a job for an all new "Hero". Like Spies; you could send Hero's to inspire allied provinces and a % chance to slay a nest.
Unfortunately there's no place for Hero's in A:CTS. I made them up.
Yeah, even with my meager play time I have noticed that most wildlife and fleshcrackers are one segment. If you have a couple of cheap ramming ships with a lot of crew, it's quite hard to lose. Dragons just need a wall to crash into.
yeah ive found that ramming is the best technique against dragons
