Summary

The War Factory can be utilized as a back line summoning station or a strong front liner with anti-missile technology. You can move it around with mobile beacon to further delay it getting in harms way.

With the anti-missile tech it's a very good response to mass Storm Callers or mass Overlords.

If you want to be proactive with the War Factory, you need to start with the summoning technologies and setup them early game somehow by using the same units and upgrading them. Or picking up improved steel ball/sledge cards as the War Factory will summon the improved versions.

The unit has an upkeep of 150 per round, so it truly is a late game unit and I think it doesn't make any sense economy wise to start building them before round 5. If you deploy it too early, you will make your board vulnerable to flanks and lose economy in the progress.

Some undocumented features of the War Factory:

  • The spawned units will be the same level as your War Factory.
  • You can't equip an item on it.
