Mix LA/Lancers. If you got more lancers alive then make arwen, in another way(more LA alive) make Haldir. Best is to have both of them.

Tree, rax, creep classical, I dont see anything too much useful in f÷wards rax tbh. Second rax in middle game is useful ofc smile.gif.

To crush archers/get down trees? Pretty obvious imo. Well this is probably topic just for 1v1 but those lancers are even more useful in 2v2 than in 1v1 but in 1v1 they are very useful too.

Ok I agree with double rax but you need lancers...lol take this:
2x LA+1x MP vs. 2x LA+1x Lancers, guess which band of units will win when neutral host with good micro on both sides.

going lancers puts you behind. they are extremely easy to defend, even with pure archers. you can't keep up with a 2 rax spam and you can't do shit in a direct fight. if you go 2 rax and ur opponent cav just 1-2 pikes mixed in your army forces him to focus that pike with his archers and he cant just a click into your archers to spread the dmg, which leads to a overkill of the pikes. so basically you kill half his archers before he can can even touch your own archers and when he doesn't focus ur pikes the cav is completely useless and all he can do is just trampling some random unguarded archers.

1 lancer, because the stables also cost 600... and arwen will get flood on lvl 4 and she can defend vs your lancers.

True with Lancers, you can split them tho in late game. I still think they are useful, ofc arwen is pro there.

They are good lategame, but going stables before 2nd rax is bad. Before you get your first Lancers out you need to have 700-1000 CPs, Mirkwood archers, Arwen, Haldir and maybe Thran/Glorfindel... thats way more important than Lancers.

Well if you think so...maybe I would make them between Arwen and Glorf.
Mirks are neccesary ofc, still Lancers counter them biggrin.gif.

Otherwise nice Ava smile.gif.

Mirks counter lancers in big numbers, you can't afford to go mass lancers, because if you do so you can't do anything against him running around and destroying every single RB 1 by 1 and just defending with some Mirks, pike traps and arwen. Also if you go mass cav = instant loss when your opponent has Eagles. And just a few lancers are also not really effective cuz they are 2 easy to shut down and make your main army weaker.
