Playing with friends, I built multiple bases across the map in a tactic aimed at constricting resources for everybody else on the map. My base defences were pretty solid on land, but then I got attacked from the water by a pretty large fleet of cruisers.

By the time I responded, I had lost all of my construction yards and a large quantity of other buildings including war factories. This seemed to leave me in the position where my only option was to storm their base with the units I had remaining and all the foot soldiers I could afford.

How can I recover from losing my construction yards?

Aside from taking an enemies version of the same with an engineer, or building an MCV which you couldn't do due to your lost war factories, you can't.

in addition to the above there is also a chance that an MCV will spawn as a result of picking up a crate

I'm not sure what the percentage chance is though
