do you buy buildings and stuff?

I was just wondering how many of you buy your structures and who just puts them down on the battlefield. I just put them down.

I buy Depends; now that I'm getting a little older I enjoy the added security.

I buy structures if they serve a direct military function, like a fortress or a defense tower. If they're just there for scenery or random cover, then why bother.

I buy buildings, yeah, because it's funnir to battle inside structures or attack structures filled with Snipers.

Generally I don't. If I was going to build fixed weapons I would buy structures for those, but my style of play revolves around smaller mobile units, and structures don't really fit into that.
Just one random act of violence can brighten your day. Especially if it involves explosives.

I think a bunch of us here are confused on the question. what he's asking (i think) is if you spend your CP points to buy structures that are on the field, or if you just let buildings exist unoccupied.

I was asking if you buy buildings with your CP or if you just put then down and use them in addition to your full CP budget

in attack games where i have plenty of time we (me and oponents) build a base (for the parson under attack) but in battles where there multiple bases we build our own.
but i never "buy" them there mine even if i never brought them.

No, I don't, unless someone wants to buy them to build a fast fort.

I don't use CP, by the way. Only if I play a solo RPG, and I only did it once.

I've only played one Brikwar so far, but the best way to do it I know, if your even using cp, is to only buy a building if it give you a tactical advantage other than cover. Examples would be things like Turrets, fixed artillery emplacements, communications tower that lets you communicate with an orbiting ship that has ground attack capabilities, etc. Otherwise, if it;s just a building that gives cover than don't buy it.
