which faction can be used for the most strategies, and why?
*good*
the slow but sturdy Dwarfs?
the ancient ranged elves?
the fierce men of the west?

*evil*
the fast scurrying goblins?
the evil orcs and trolls of the great eye?
the followers of the corrupted wizard Saruman?

It's got to be Isengard.
Poweful infantry
Overpowered pikemen
Ok crossbowmen
Fast and deadly wargs
Anti Hero Lurtz
Anti troops Saruman

Their only weakness is the fragility of their buildings, making them an easy target for harrassment. Other than that, they are good for everything.

ive heard people say that isengard can easily be countered be late game silverthorne arrows. what do you think about that? Also, heavily armored cavalry can take down all but the pikeman infantry. Also, i would'nt say they have all that great of pp.

Silverthorns are good against anything.
Lv5 fully upgraded Rohirrim can't kill a lv1 isengard uruk pikeman horde, even when flanking.
With pp you mean powers? They have the best spy power in the game (reveals about half of the map and lasts for a very long time), the overpowered summon wildmen, buffs, the overpowered summon garrisoned tower, the wyrm, the fortress-killing dragonstrike...

The dragon strike it's a special power of isengard. It's a flying dragon sending down fire to a targeted area. About Isengard, it's a powerful faction, but easily defeated by elves. I think that a lorien warriors battalion can deafeat a uruk-ai warriors battalion. And about the roohirim, they can defeat a uruk-ai pickmen battalion: insted of attack them directly, first they need of attack them with arrows. After that, flanked, the pikemen battalion shall be defeated, but not easily. Isengard it's a good faction, but not the best one.

dwarves have the least strategy, or thye gueardian rush, or thye creep.

elves havent got much of a strategie aswell, thye just creep with archers. And than add MS for protection form cav and some LW... all form that same rax.. You may go for cav.. but not really necesary.. just spend on hero's. Elves is a micro and hero faction.

mordor in 1.06 is just corsairs > FB > win
or Easterlings> creep > corsairs > FB > win
not much either...
corsairs are op, rest is quite shit.

for men sog spam is just the best strat on 1.06 because thye so op... and than you go for op heros boromir and aragorn..

isengard has more in strategy, 1frunrax>frun, 2furn>rax, 4 furn, and 3furnwargrush are all good strats imo. 1furn>wargpit>furn, or 2furn> wargpit are good too, but moslty only vs elves i would say.

goblins have quite much strategy aswell (and a lot of micro too actually, haveing weak fast units.) They have actually basicly ven more options and strategy than any other faction, will name some of them tommorw or so, i dont realy feel like writng baout it now, getting tired (ok?).
