An inexpert but still good guardian rush against Men on the Lorien map. It wasn't perfect because I wasted time, changing my mind about where to place mines and letting the builders hang about. It all worked out in the end.

Kester (Dwarves) vs Wynd|Men (MotW)


Mine -> HOW -> Mine -> Archery Range

[+]pulled off good rush
[+]got early Axe Throwers
[+]had a guardian meat shield vs Rohirimm to protect the Throwers
[+]good use of the Men of Dale power
[+]didn't waste Rallying Call power

[=]ok mine placement
[=]ignored archers that almost crippled your rush. you're lucky you got that fortress down IMO.
[=]got outpost but lost it
[=]only ok builder micro, you let that first one sit there before deciding to build a mine

[-]you found his builder but didn't kill it
[-]lost a builder very early
[-]you ignored his calvary you should've used 1 batt to distract them. His Knights almost trampled your guardian rush
[-]after your rush you sent him 1 unit at a time. "fed" his Rohirimm letting them level up
[-]when he attacked you, you hit his archers and not his Rohirimm
[-]didn't get the outpost back
[-]didn't find his rax until he had 3 soldiers out and a well almost finished
[-]after you wiped out his base you only had 1 guardian attacking his farm
[-]you stopped rax hunting for a bit
[-]lost a batt of pikes to horses

You did a good job, but could've done better. For the most part you just let your guardians sit in his base. You did win though so that counts for something. You also didn't take Outposts, which let him have an eco after he lost his base.

Player Overall Rating: 3.5


Farm -> Farm -> Archery Range -> Farm -> Stables

[+]early Knights
[+]took out one of his builders early
[+]very early Rohirimm
[+]outpost control
[+]got a rax up in a hidden spot

[=]harassed but you stopped after hitting 1 mine

[-]used your builders a bit late
[-]spammed archers instead of getting soldiers
[-]lost your fort early
[-]you didn't late his outpost but you have Knights right next to it
[-]you let Knights idle in the enemy base
[-]after you lost your fort and built 3 rohirimm, you didn't make anything (buildings, units or upgrades)
[-]after your 3 farms were gone, you didn't build any
[-]didn't get Rangers but had a level 2 Archery Range
[-]didn't trample soldiers, only used bows
[-]late rax

Only OK play. You didn't get soldiers, which are fast and hit hard. You shouldn't have built the Range, and gotten a rax instead. You got early rohirimm though, which is always good. But you didn't make any more archers and didn't make rangers once you had gotten Fire Arrows.

Player Overall Rating: 2.75

Game Rating: 3.0 - a good rush, but slow afterwards. Only a mediocre game, but still worth watching, IMO
