I'm a Conquest Idiot.

SDS

Yes, I'm clueless on how conquest works and I'm missing out on free packs and stars. Is there a clear concise instruction manual on how to complete these? I've tried YouTube and really all those give you is strategy. I need the meat and potatoes help. Thanks.

Ever played RISK? Same concept, but with baseball.

If you're still having issues, play the Tebow Board and watch the in-game tutorials.

Steal only if there is a rewards for stealing or you want to make stronghold battles an easier difficultly level in the early turns. After that take open spaces when reinforcing as it gets you more reinforcements your next turn. Then just simulate all match ups other than the strong hold match ups until completed. if you can try to build a little wall to stop other teams from advancing

This isn't a long and detailed page, but includes some basic descriptions. This is from TS 2018, but hopefully the descriptions of each turn help.

Also, they're describing the original (full) conquest map with all 30 teams. Obviously there's many new maps now, but descriptions should all still be applicable.

There are many Youtube videos out there with great guides. Basically just conquer as many territories as possible and sim all of the small games until you get to the strongholds. The more fans you have versus how many the stronghold has depends on the difficulty you can play on. Only steal fans if required as a mission. Rinse and repeat!

I'll copy and paste a text I sent my buddy yesterday. He's been blowing through them since.

"Not really. Just spread out early. When you reinforce you get 1 fan for every 3 tiles you own. Try and spread out early and grab as many of the blank tiles as possible. Then reinforce 1 tile and move towards the stronghold. Keep a few fans in any choke points on the map so you can keep the cpu from advancing. Then just throw enough fans in your attacking tile to play on rookie and start your 5th starter so you face a shitty pitcher."

Hit square on the controller to see what you have to accomplish. There's some random conquests that require you to capture a stronghold on your 1st or 2nd turn.

SDS

Build up your Fanbase. Do this by taking every empty Territory you can. No need to Steal unless you have missions stating Steal "X" number of Fans. By all means steal if you want, but it's not necessary. When it comes to Reinforce, The CPU will basically build a wall. Reinforcing Each Territory little by little around their Stronghold. Don't do this yourself. Choose a Path you want to take and load up a single territory with every available Fan you've got. First priority on your next Attack turn is Claiming unclaimed territories. Second is attacking occupied territories. Sim each Battle. You'll when some, you'll lose some. Rinse and repeat. When I have a large Fan Advantage, I go after the higher numbered territories first. 22 vs. 7, 21 vs 6, etc. CPU will typically only attack with these larger numbered territories so getting them out of the way just speeds things up. When you start getting lower, go after the 1's and 2's. They more fans you take into a stronghold match the better. Let's you play on lower difficulties.

I was clueless how to beat and complete conquest until I watch this video here... It help me out tremendously.. I have since banged out all the conquest maps except the Nation of Baseball one. Only because dont want to gring it out. Just follow his guide on this map and you can use the same method for all of them and you will rake in the awards.. good luck...
