This was an interesting game. It was a 2v2 game until someone (my partner) dropped out right before it started. The game began anyway, so it was me against 2, with no AI players.
I got off to a good start. I took two troops of Lorien archers around the map to get the neutral buildings under my control, and started attacking enemy towers and mines. Then they started attacking my fortress. I had quickly built up two heroes, forge upgrades, and had a nice army waiting for them, but it wasn't enough. Still, I had my builders all over the map, and built a second fortress after the first was destroyed.
So, what could I have done differently in this game? Looking forward to your comments! :)
