I say that the majority of the time I play Halo Wars, I play as the Covenant. And throughout all the time I've played as the Covenant, I have never made a factory.
I honestly just don't see the point. Why would I spend money on an anti-infantry tank like the Wraith when I can build a whole bunch of jackals who can get the job done better for the same cost? Why make a Locust (which can take no damage whatsoever) when a fully upgraded Hunter can do the same job and better? Ghosts? I don't have to say anything for ghosts.
Don't need no factory if you ask me.

I've played as the Covenant a few times now, and I've never built the factories as I don't see the point as I mainly get Hunter's and Vampires and a few jackals and that's worked for me.

I am going to try to guess your TS. 20 or less.
An elephant rush is very simple to defend.

Here is the quickest way to kill someone with Cutter, Buill almost all of slots with supply pads then when you have 400 supplys build an elephant. drive the elephant close to the enemys base, but not close enough to where they can see you then you lock it down and with the supplys your earning storm an enemys base. I have taken someone down the first five minutes of the game.

Haha yeah, I guess everything else is either on par with them or just isn't as effective.
Yeah, definitely. Especially since most of the Anti-Leader units jackals and flamers are weak to both Banshee and Wraiths it works great.

That is actually a really good strategy (prophet harass).
I was 41 for 45 last month with prophet and prophet harass followed by wraiths or banshees works really well.

Seems like a very effective rush if you plan it well. I like the Harassing strategy with the Prophet personally though, I guess in a way it could prove the point of this thread as it accomplishes the same thing sooner and is almost just as impossible to counter.

I have lost once to it, and it was against someone that flamer rushed me.
And to counter, many things work, but they can hurt you later in the game.
One thing that works is if you can get tanks out quickly.
Another if flamers and a d-bomb.
The last is not letting people get their hooks.
But the first is really hard, as it takes 3 canister tanks to kill just an Arbiter, and it takes 6 - 6:30 minutes to get 3 canister tanks.
The second would hurt you a lot, as the enemy could build 1 banshee and take out all your units.
The last is the best, but unless it is Covie vs Covie, the Arbiter should be able to keep hook control.
Also this is easier to counter as UNSC than Covie.

Nice, seems to work pretty well. Have you ever lost using it? How would you go about countering it if someone used it against you?
