Historical DescriptionEdit

"Under Mao Zedong and Zhou Enlai, the People's Liberation Army survived the brutal 12-month Long March in 1934-1935, now considered a foundational event for modern China. After a truce to fight against the Japanese from 1937-1946, the Communists ultimately won the civil war and took control over mainland China in 1949."

Attacking Strategies Edit

  • Due to its fast attack speed, this unit fares well against infantry, as their lower health means that more shots that do less damage, which the Long March Infantry has, does better as less shots are wasted. Against other defenses, such as cavalry, towers and traps, you'll treat them like a regular shooter; keep them out of fire, target the defenders, etc.
  • Long March Infantry have low health; making them vulnerable to defenses. Use Heavy Infantry such as Assault Infantry as meat shields to protect the Long March Infantry.
  • Long March Infantry are cheap and can be used to set off hidden enemy traps.
  • Use Long March Infantry to protect Heavy Infantry from other infantry so your Heavy Infantry won't get distracted.

Defensive Strategy Edit

  • Long March Infantry can be used as good Alliance Troops. One example is that they can shoot over walls to attack troops of the attackers forcing the troops to destroy the wall to kill them. Another thing is that they're good against other heavy infantry.
