I was playing online the other day and I was MotW vs. Isengard. He sent one battalion of Uruk-Hai to my base and only have on soldier battalion (for the moment) I decided to kill the Uruks but my units got slaughterd and they were in shield block formation. The Uruks didn't have any upgrades or spells used on them. They weren't even in their shield wall. What I want to know is: Are the Gondor Soldiers one of the weakest swordsmen in the game? Cause I thought this was sad.

We all have a choice, so make yours wisely. If its wrong then make the best out of it.

Gondor Soldiers are indeed fairly weak. This accounts for their relatively low price. IIRC Uruk-Hair soldiers are twice their price so they should be able to defeat them.

Put your soldiers in shield wall and defensive stance, they will last much longer.

Although the Uruk-Hai soldiers will ultimately triumph, provided no other units/abilities interfere.

About the Gondor soliders been the weekest units of the game, you are wrong. The weeakest soliders of the game are the goblin soliders. they only have 90 of life. About the uruks; did you checked on witch rank they were? because that makes all the diference.

The thing is, you should not have only 1 sog...
You should have a lot... since thye are cheaper and build faster than UW

If sog where stronger than UW... that would be sad...

To answer some of the other questions, UW was level one, more sog's were on the way, and I said that sog were one of the weakest inthe game. Plus my units were in defensive stance thw whole time.

dont think you got the point almost evryone is trying to make...

Sog cost 200 and build damm quick
Uruks cost 350 and build damm slow

And so SoG has to win from Uruks in your opinion? WTF....

First uruk from an uruk rush can be hard to stop...
the thing is dont engage you engaged him 1v1 and somehow still did not get a 2nd sog before he killed you...
So than don't engage and engage only when 2nd comes out, or almost out.. idk...
flank them w/h with the first.. run away.. w/h...


Now another thing..
"they were in shield block formation."

when did you ahve the time to research banner carriers ? 0_o? This means the uruk was infact very late and you could easily have stopped him, no you could rush with you sog's and destroy his rb's etc. and get him on defensive, IF you palyed normally and spammed sog in the beginning.. instead of rechearching banner carriers? :S
