General Tips

If you’re here, it means you have liked my guide enough to keep reading, thanks buddy!!

Death Star Tip: For the love of god don’t put the DS in corrupted space for long periods of time…Or iG-88 will destroy the Death Star Thanks for paricipating!

Space Tips

-The AI will retreat if you destroy their space station, use it to your favor , if you want a quick conquest rush the space station and viceversa
It is safe to auto-resolve a battle when you’re only fighting a space station

STAR WARS™ Empire at War: Gold Pack - How to play as the Galactic Empire

-The Rebels will spam X-Wings and Y-Wings to the point of insanity.
Keep that in mind and prepare yourself with a Tartan Cruiser!

-The Broadside Cruiser is your best ally, you’ll be able to destroy the enemy fleet from a safe distance, but they need a scort fleet

STAR WARS™ Empire at War: Gold Pack - How to play as the Galactic Empire

-Mantain at least one Tartan Cruiser and one acclamator in your fleet, this will help you in your fight against the Rebel starfighters
-Put a unit in the square of your fleet,that unit will be a recognition unit, this will allow to deploy your fleet as you wish in the fleet

-Remember, you will get fighters for free with the Empire, overwhelm the space stations and capital ships with them, if you use your capital ships first they will get destroyed easily.

Neutralize Ackbar with Boba Fett whenever it’s possible, his flagship, the Home One is one of the most powerful ships in the game.

Ground Tips

-Bring Ships capable of an Orbital Bombardment and with a Hangar to the Orbit of the Planet
In EAW, you have the ability to bomb the enemy and in most cases it will turn the tide of the battle

Orbital Bombardment

-The Local Population can be loyal to you or your enemies, have that in mind when you’re invading

-Build Turrets in your way to the Enemie Base or when you’re defending a planet, they will be saved on the map permanently, that can easily turn the tide of a battle

An example of this is the Anti-Air Turret, if the Rebels invade with Speeders, their initial wave of attack will get absolutely destroyed

-Use heroes in the Ground Battles, it’ll minimize casualties in a brutal scale!!!

-You should have a garrison in worlds bordered by the Rebels, this will dissuade Rebel Raids for a while
Oh..Wait….

Administration Tips

-It is not necessary to build space stations all over the galaxy.
Build them in worlds where an enemy attack is realistic and if you have enough credits, build them as a second line of defense to said worlds

STAR WARS™ Empire at War: Gold Pack - How to play as the Galactic Empire

-Eliminate the Corruption as quickly as possible, if you don’t do it, the Consortium will be able to bypa*s your defenses and attack your inner worlds

-Don’t sacrifice resources on planets that are on salients or those difficult to defend

An example of this is Kashyyyk, the local population( the Wookies) is no joke, defending the planet is a headache, having to fight the Wookies AND the invasion force, Good Luck!!!

On the Galactic Map, the situation isn’t better, the planet is a salient and you shouldn’t invest too much resources trying to defend it

STAR WARS™ Empire at War: Gold Pack - How to play as the Galactic Empire

-In contrast, conquer the enemy’s salient whenever you have an opportunity, like in this image

Blue: Empire

Red: Rebels

Yellow: Consortium

As you may have noticed, the Empire is the only faction with all of its planets connected, so you’ll be able to send reinforcements easily unlike the Consortium and the Rebels.

The Empire is sorrounded in a full circle and it’s suffering from overextension….but, don’t fear!!
You have a superior fleet and technology at the start of the game, use it wisely!

Because…

Overextension is not a problem at the beginning of the game but if you don’t attack with your superior fleet, the Rebels will start catching up with your Tech and you won’t like to see an angry Ackbar invading Illum with a Ma*sive Fleet

And with that in mind, Let’s see how to conquer this ma*sive galaxy…

The Plan

Okey, plans are useless, but planning is indispensable so in a nuthhell:

  • Create a solid economy by building Mining Facilities
  • Fortify all imperial worlds with Stormtroopers garrisons
  • Start Researching Tech
  • Ama*s your fleet
  • Conquer the northern part of the map with said fleet
  • Build Mining Facilities in your new worlds like like there wasn’t a tomorrow
  • Build more ships
  • Invade the Eastern part of the Map
  • Build Mining Facilities
  • Take your time for the next offensive, the Consortium and the Rebels will start fighting for the remaining resources
  • Use this time for the Construction of the Death Star II and the Imperial Star Destroyers(Lord Vader included)
  • Invade the South-East part of the map, Why? Because it has important planets, Mon Calamari, Honoghr, Nal Hutta and The Maw unlike the South-West, wich has Poor planets( Dagobah, Hoth, Tatooine) or planets difficult to conquer like Naboo
  • By this part of the game, you are unstoppable

 

Phase 0: Setting the stage

The Key with the Empire is Quantity, not Quality.
Imperial Forces are dispersed around the galaxy, start recruiting Stormtroopers in all of your worlds, this will stop Rebel Raids…for a while.

STAR WARS™ Empire at War: Gold Pack - How to play as the Galactic Empire

Start building Mining Facilities in Fresia, Myrkr, Felucia and Coruscant,

Fresia, Myrkr and Felucia are worlds sorrounded by Imperial planets, it is safe to invest in Mining Facilities

And Coruscant is your capital, it has a lot of slots and it’s safe to invest there, Why? Because it’s your capital!!! If you have enemy forces in your capital….You’re in serious problems

STAR WARS™ Empire at War: Gold Pack - How to play as the Galactic Empire

“Coruscant with Mining Facilities”

Instead, use Byss as a military base

STAR WARS™ Empire at War: Gold Pack - How to play as the Galactic Empire

Be careful with the Rebel Alliance, the AI always attack Ilum and Eriadu first, Keep that in mind and build a few ships over there!!!

Phase 1: Beginning the Northern Offensive

STAR WARS™ Empire at War: Gold Pack - How to play as the Galactic Empire - Phase 1: Beginning the Northern Offensive

Ama*s the fleets from Alderaan, Byss, Coruscant, Fresia, Myrkr and Felucia into one single fleet, this fleet is going to be your most valuable a*set in the Early Game, just behind the Emperor

STAR WARS™ Empire at War: Gold Pack - How to play as the Galactic Empire

Meanwhile, take Boba Fett and invade Korriban, you’ll lost if you auto-resolve but it won’t kill Boba, Spam Boba until you conquer Korriban

Take your Fleet and destroy the Rebels at Korriban

Remember…The Rebel Forces are divided at the start of the game, you have the advantage with your ma*sive fleet, it might take a few tries but it’s achievable

Then, invade Yavin 4, win the Space and Ground battles and establish an Economic World(Use the Emperor in the Ground Battles).

STAR WARS™ Empire at War: Gold Pack - How to play as the Galactic Empire

*Economic World: Worlds that only have mining facilities, nothing more

Repeat the same process with the rest of the planets

End of the Offensive

STAR WARS™ Empire at War: Gold Pack - How to play as the Galactic Empire

With your new worlds and their mining facilities, you will get a ma*sive boost in your economy, you’ll be able to build Quality ships
Like the Victory Cruiser!!!
Also when your Tech improves, you will be able to ma*sproduce the best units , like the Death Star, the Executor and all the AT-AT’s you want!

Phase 2: Attack in the West

STAR WARS™ Empire at War: Gold Pack - How to play as the Galactic Empire - Phase 2: Attack in the West

STAR WARS™ Empire at War: Gold Pack - How to play as the Galactic Empire

Phase 2 is a combined a*sault in the Western Regions of the Galaxy, this a*sault will weaken the Consortium and in a minor extent, the Rebels

This Assault will buy you time to militarize, build the Death Star, Get Darth Vader , start constructing Imperial Star Destroyers; you have a solid economy but it is not enough to settle in a defensive mode

The Rebels and the Consortium will be too weak to attack you, so they will fight over the remaining planets and resources, Sit and enjoy!!!

“Divide and Conquer”

but don’t forget…

After building Mining Facilities in your newly conquered worlds, let’s focus on the South East

By this stage of the conquest, you are THE mayor galactic power and it’s hard to lose, but not impossible.
With Tech 5, Huge tons of Credits, the Death Star and the Executor(Lord Vader) are at the reach of your hand

STAR WARS™ Empire at War: Gold Pack - How to play as the Galactic Empire
