How to not get sniped 101,all-things edition

First of all, stop thinkign that theres not exist countermeasures to not get sniped by jesters, corsairs,jANUSes, rape trains,strats, gunships, TML. This guide has it.

Jesters: Scout, if seeing enmey jester prepare tons of stationary AA, dont go away from it.

Corsairs/Janus/rape trains: at 15 minutes you should be T2, build some T2 shields, you're safe now. Get some flaks to help you/your air players. Specially corsairs, if you didnt had any intel ever and didnt had shields, dodge rockets with your com till get somebody to help you (or bring inties, ASF)

Strategic bombers = Personal shields, T2/T3 shields, more of them. At late games you should shield your com, scince its the best time for snipes. SAMs can help abit, but still cant kill whole rape train. Had no shields, try to dodge bombs.

Gunships = shields, they dont like them. Get flaks. Dont put your com at open space far from shields. For T3 gunships prepare SAMs.

TML = TMD walls. Build as much as you can, especally if its cybran TML. Scouting is needed. Building lots of TMD for no reason is stupid mass waste. If you/your team dont know how to build scouts play with camera away, if you see yellow squares coming at ur com you'll mostly likely gonna get "Commander under attack" and explode next second if you dont move.

Telemazes:Personal shields saves lifes again for few seconds, get lots of T1 PD around you if someone is building tons of Pgens. Not sure if somebody is gonna sacrifice himself for killing somebody. The sheild can hold up some dmg till PD kills the mazer. If you have scouted him already teleporting get into T2 transport so when he teleports he will die for no reason here.


Post more things you get sniped with ill give you the answer.

What biass is trying to say is that maybe you should improve before trying to give advice. You current forum posts in other threads have indicated the skill level that you're currently operating at. I'm probably say that you were about 700 global rank or below. 'Am I correct?

Also, your advice is far from perfect and there are many possible counters to each of these threats. Which one you take depends on what direction you have decided to go for tech.

For instance. TML snipes can be countered by TMD. But they can also be countered by not standing still. If you are using your ACU aggressively, or at least have it on a reclaim patrol, it is no longer a viable target for TML snipe. You can also protect yourself by destroying the damned launcher.

For Jesters any AA will do. It doesn't need to be static. It can be mobile or airborne. T2 gunships you definitely want flak, and T3 you should be looking at some SAM's or T3 MAA as well. Walking underwater works, and if you're near water, you may as well have cruisers.

As for the T2 bomber, and corsair snipes, these can be countered by shields and flak. But they can also be countered by walking under water. Even without water to walk into, it is quite possible to survive a Corsair snipe without flak or shields. All you need to do is have air superiority with interceptors. If you walk your ACU in a tight circle, while sending all your air on an attack move order to your ACU's position. You can completely mitigate any damage from the Corsairs and have them shot down shortly afterward. (same goes for any bomber snipe).


***

So you see. Many options. Don't Pidgeon hole yourself into only using one type of counter, you need to be more flexible and more resourceful.

Corsair and gunship snipes should be fast and going in water isnt a good way to counter this. If you get out of shields you'll mostly likely die next seconds. 10 jesters can kill a com in 20 seconds.
