You will only learn how to build a perfect company by playing a lot of games, but some of the core rules of building a company are:
- Have one box at 25 population. This box will contain the units you start the game with since at the start of a game you have 25 pop.
- All the other boxes should be around 8-12 population. The reason for this is that every box you call in increases the delay the next call in arrives by 5 seconds. 8-12 pop is the balanced level.
- Build your company with the following thought: In the game you always want to have two sources of AT on the field as a minimum. (ATG + panzerschreck for example) + You always want to have one source of indirect fire (mortar, sniper, howitzer) or a tank/armored vehicle on the field.
- Spend all of your resources
