what stage of the game did you do this, and coudn't you just have sent a single archer in with them?

It was at the start of mid-game, and all I could afford with my one builder was an Ent while Boromir and about 3 SoG were pounding my Fort.

@ Sean: I have trouble with using upgrades for Elves since I always think I need heroes, but I'm taking a guess that Heavy Armor is the upgrade to get most of the time.

I have gone for fast Silverthorn Arrows before when I had the upperhand, and it just helped me secure a win. There's always a risk that your Eregion Forge could be taken down though.

Silverthorn is also really expensive, it is normally better to go for armor/mirks first. Also in almost all cases Mirkwoods are better than Silverthorn LA anyways.

How do you keep your pikes alive ? They die so fast to anything; I have no clue how to kill of mass archers early game, and my pikes pay the price. biggrin.gif

Any advice ?

To do that, use porcupine on your bikes and/or keep them out of range. To kill enemy archers, run a wide circle with lancers and trample from behind. The site from behind is poor so they get less timee to react. Also if he is shooting on your archers, put that archer into F stance. Also make sure you save your archers and they will become more and more powerful. You can also use arwen flood vs archers too, or go for dual rax and try to outspam. Also surprising him is good and try to pick off the smaller groups so he doesnt get as much of a chance to mass as many archers. What MU is it? (i assume men). I will try and find some reps and post them for you.

What would you do in a 2v2 and your directly against a warg rushing isen which you can see? My partner went first set pikes and went on the warg pit, I gave him rc, yet the pit stood due to fort fire owning the pikes.

Keep them in defensive, that way they survive 2 Fort arrows and w/ RC will take the PB. If its buck get the warg before for creep cash and to get level 2 ( this will help alot) in the rare occasion you can get a massive clump, use porcupine, they will still attack the pit if the clump is good enough.

On topic: K, i'm getting really sick of awful hosts and re dodging, and i want to try out some other factions, however, i don't want to go random since there are some factions i hate with a passion *coughdwarvescough*. so is it considered ok to only play elves onhost, or should you play them off if you play them on?

I really don't care about any people who pick on-host or off-host. I hate everyone equally regardless of what they do right or wrong.
