  • In domination, specialist hires are a big part of the game. They can form amazing combos that can win you the game. Here is a list of the main strategies used in domination:

    1. Tycoon and admiral stacking
    Tycoon and admiral stacking is the most used strategy in high rating games, and for good reasons. Having your factories produce drillers that can move as fast as smugglers every 3.2hrs is overpowered.

    Specialists to hire:
    Tier 1:
    Smuggler/ tycoon
    Navigator/ admiral
    Hypnotist/ king
    Foreman/ engineer
    Tinkerer/ Moe

    None

    How to beat:
    You can't

    2. General stacking
    General stacking is a specialit based strategy. It relies on using the general global ability with weaker 2 for 1 hire specialists to kill a ton of drillers. It is seen once in a while in ranked games

    Specialists to hire:

    How to beat:

    3. Mega sentry
    The goal of this strategy is to cover the whole map with as many sentries as possible, attacking io's princesses and sentries. You might see once once in a while in domination but it's not used too often since it takes a long time to build up. Super defensive strategy

    Inspector/ security chief
    Hypnotist/ king

    Weak against:
    Admiral tycoon stacking
    General stacking
    Pirate navigator combo

    Combos:
    Sentry princess

    4. Pirate navigator combo
    The goal of this strategy is to use your prayers and navigators and your other tier 1 specialists to destroy subs, capture outposts and kill specialists. A variety of combos can be made from this strategy.

    Tier 1:
    Pirate
    Navigator/ admiral

    I will be adding security chief stacking and engineer stacking soon. If I missed any strategy or specialists in my list, please tell me which ones. Hope this guide helped you guys!
