1 v. 1 on Celduin River
insanesameri (Dwarves) vs. Asav (Elves)
Build Order: Mine >>> Mine >>> Archery Range >>> Mine
[+] Nice steady stream of throwers at start.
[+] Got as close to a troll lair as possible.
[+] Good use of nearby tower
[+] Once you got Gloin, the tide was turned. Slightly.
[+] Nice job using the late-game units such as the Zealots and the catapults. They were what beat the enemy waves.
[+] Kept the northern signal fire the whole game
[=] Stances! Defensive stance when not attacking!
[=] Wagon upgrades?
[=] Bought Heal when really not needed. Rallying Call would have helped way more, earlier.
[=] Didn’t really keep your outposts, but you maintained an inn a while that gave you all of your Dale archers.
[+] So-so use of Summon Dale Archers power.
[-] Bad placement of first mines and buildings. If attempting an axe-thrower rush, one should be more forward and the other protected, IMO.
[-]Early on, you almost lost one of your builders to a cave troll!
[-] Powers? You didn’t even buy any until mid-game!
[-] You let your units sit around and get killed. Better micro.
[-] Lost your fortress after waiting til the last minute to counter his Ents.
Player Rating: 3 You did some good things, but you won because your opponent didn’t get Ents. Work on your micro to seal the game quicker and easier.
Build Order: Tree >>> Arwen >>> [Outposts] >>> Stables >>> Tree
[+] Early Arwen to capture buildings.
[+] Kept steady waves coming at your opponent, mainly of cavalry that decimated him.
[+] Nice choices with powers.
[+] Very fine defense with towers and statues.
[=] Swiftly got Mirkwoods w/ Silverthorn, but they died rather quickly.
[=] Late game heroes came rather…late, don’t you think?
[=] Legolas > Elrond in this game, at least.
[-] Normally focused on taking out units, rather than buildings.
[-] Stances, stances, stances! Your Summoned Ents could have destroyed his fortress much more promptly had they been in Aggressive Stance.
[-] Late game siege? Ents would have turned the game in your favor.
Player Rating: 3.5 I really think you played better throughout the entire match; you just got too confident and fell apart at the end. Try to improve late game strats.
Overall Score of Game: 3
Not a bad game, overall. It's a games with a lot of "waves" that was enjoyable to watch. Worth your time, if you've got the time.
