Review by: Thrandy

Starting positions:
Team 2: (Mordor) Arjen_Robben / (Mordor) daii- - West
Team 3: (Mordor) DivA|ESOOP / (Rohan) PayBackIsNasty - East


This was a very entertaining, intense, and well-matched game. The action is nonstop and you never have to fast-forward since something is happening on every part of the map. Team 2 wins because of their better combo and Team 3's Rohan is just powerless in late game against full cp's of trolls, catas, and combos.

Team 2 Commentary:

You guys played very well this game. Daii's troll micro was nicely executed to be flexible with Sammy's army. Dunno why Sammy made combos when he did, it was a little too early and they weren't effective without using bloodthirst with drummers first. But late late game they were used ok. I would've liked to see you guys rush Rohan's base more often with WK, like taking out his cita or just bombing some battalions just to keep him occupied and putting up defenses. Other than that, pretty much just a flawless game in terms of teamwork and micro, so wp.

Team 3 Commentary:

Early game was pretty good, Poose probably could've massed his orcs in groups of 3/4 rather than harassing in groups of 2 because they were easily defended from. But Rohan's harassment was very good to take out the other team's econ before trolls came out. Well in late game it's obvious that you had absolutely nothing to turn the game around, so that's why you needed to take more initiative in mid game. Fast HA would've worked ok with Elven summon, and while Poose would knock over their trolls with his own to defend Rohan's HA, you would be killing buildings with rohirrim. But all in all you just had the lesser combo and its just really hard to do any effective damage before late game against double Mordor so you played very well for your situation.

Overall Rating: 7

Silver and RotWC

No worries I have to repeat the obvious in my reviews otherwise it'll be short and help-less. wink.gif Understandable ofc.

Ya I think the strat I was alluding to was just going straight for Horse Archers essentially and not trying combos rush. I just don't think a combos rush can work, especially b/c of their double land wacko.gif.

Mass Horse Archers with full LD would have a shot. The only problem there is that it would be easy for doulbe Mordor to adjust with just catas/combos, but hey it's still probably best, and in conjunction with 2 cage spam from Mordor. Mix in a few normal rohirrim ofc.

Thanks for review Thrandy, pretty much nailed it biggrin.gif.
