Played on Fords of Isen II

Player Review: Legolaim (Men of the West)

Starting Strat: Farm, Barracks, Farm, Barracks, (Spam Soldiers)


[+]Double Rax Spam
[+]Got Boromir early enough
[+]Hidden stables
[+]Clumped and got both orc pits down
[+]Got Elven wood as first power
[+]Ivory tower


[=]you used Boromirs horn OK
[=]you rebuilt your farms, but it took a while
[=]you needed archers, and only built one battalion of expensive weak ones


[-]You still focus on 1.04 tactics of ignoring troops and going for buildings. Big mistake
[-]You never bought banners for your barracks OR your fortress
[-]No heal spell. Could have saved Boromir, plus, Tom bombadil is a pretty slow guy, and can't catch up to archers.
[-]Spent almost all time on aggressive, should have changed to defensive when attacked by Mounted Nazgul
[-]Your use of cavalry seemed almost desperate in my eyes, not much for effectiveness in a blind charge onto tainted land soldiers

Player Summary: Well, you're still trying to get the hang of men of the west right now. You still use the 1.04 Strategy of focusing purely on spamming, and not enough effort on upgrades. You got the Ivory tower yes, but the Banners from both the fortress and the Barracks would both have been crucial to help you survive. Keep getting beeter, Good try.

Rating: 2.5/5

Player Review: GeneralVon (Mordor)

Starting Strat: SH, SH, Pit, Pit, Archers X2, (Spam orcs)


[+]Got Early Nazgul
[+]Spamming was quite good, even for nerfed orcs
[+]Excellent corsair use
[+]Got upgrades, giving you a huge advantage
[+]Great harassment


[=]you took a while sometimes to attack, IMO you could have won sooner
[=]The fellbeasts weren't necessary, you were fine with the mounted Nazgul
[=]Orcs in aggressive = pointless


[-]Starting with archers has never been a solid strategy, IMO spamming tons of orcs as a meat shield would be better
[-]Eh...? Not much else to say

Player Summary: Well done! You won. I must say, Orcs still have a purpose in this game, and that was some interesting Nazgul and Corsair use. You don't need advice from me methinks, so just keep on playing the way you are!

Rating: 4/5

Final Comments: A decent match with some highlights. Watch it for some clan mates action, and for anyone looking for how to play mordor with orcs

Match Rating: 3.5/5

GeneralVon death. why is archers a bad idea as a first unit?! ur crazy. i made 2 SH and if i made orcs they wouldn't be able to do much to defend the SH. 2 archers, 1 to defend each SH. :)
GeneralVon also, agresive orcs = stronger orcs. they were on tainted land.
