Very good game! Between Stonelord (great mordor) and myself, its quite entertaining!

There were a few mistakes on both sides because of stupid fucking AI (my knight didnt MOVE!).

Watch though!

There isn't any rules against swearing iirc (so long as it isn't directed at any members/staff) and reborn used: *** to block out the swear words anyway. smile.gif

Also thanks Ram. smile.gif

[EPIC]KrysleR V [GTFC]StoneLord

Matchup: Gondor v Mordor
Map: Fords of Isen



[EPIC]KrysleR (Gondor)

BO: 2 Farms in > 2 Farms out > Farm + BS > Stables > Fill with BS > Archery Range > Stables > Workshop
Strat: Pippin North, 1 soldier through middle, 1 soldier south > 3 knights > HS > 3 archers > Faramir > Gandalf > Rangers > Trebs
PP Usage: Heal > GTW > Elves > Eagles

Pros:
smile.gif Got a slaughter house during an early raid of his base
smile.gif Horse micro good to kill labourers and avoid trolls
smile.gif Faramir used well and kept alive
smile.gif Good use of Gandyís spells against trolls and naz
smile.gif Constant harassment even when the chips were down

Cons:
sad.gif Didnít get one of his mills down early on, instead of chasing orcs for ages I wouldíve sent soldiers to attack. Knights couldíve dealt with them
sad.gif Sometimes slow with formations, particularly Rangers left in skirmish
sad.gif Didnít need to give all the archers banner IMO, couldíve used Gandy or Faramirís Fear resistance to save some money
sad.gif No Boromir. He is very useful against trolls.
sad.gif Needed a well desperately throughout the game
sad.gif Didnít revive Gandy straight away

Overall Gameplay: 6


[GTFC]StoneLord (Mordor)

BO: Orc Pit + Gollum > 2 Mills > 2 SH > Haradrim Palace > Fill with SH > Troll Cages > Outposts
Strat: Gollum claims mills, one orc through middle and one defend north > Orc spam > Haradrim > Trolls > Drummers > Witch King > Catas > Nazgul > Mumaks
PP Usage: Tainted Land > Eye of Sauron > Industry > Darkness

Pros:
smile.gif Early outposts with garrisoned haradrim boosted early economy
smile.gif Used ďeat an orcĒ to heal some of the trolls
smile.gif Killed Gandy twice with a Mumak, general Mumak micro was superb
smile.gif Used Naz effectively versus cavalry
smile.gif Got catas to counter his rangers
smile.gif Full use of Mordorís LD

Cons:
sad.gif Lost some haradrim at the beginning to wargs
sad.gif Lost the WK and naz a few times
sad.gif Sometimes didnít sell buildings before the red zone
sad.gif Poor cata micro, sent them to the front making it easy for his knights to kill them

Overall Gameplay: 8

Comments:
Without doubt this is the best replay Iíve ever had the pleasure of reviewing. Both players for the most part maximised the potential of their specific factions. The Mordor player could have quite arguably put to bed any complaints regarding the red eyeís lack of power, such was the quality on show.

I felt that Gondor made 2 mistakes and one questionable decision on an otherwise excellent display. Firstly, a well was sorely needed IMO to heal those early horses after the HS, and all the other various units on the way. You may have not even needed to buy a second stables had you got one earlier. The other mistake was not reviving Gandy early enough. Had you done so, you may have had a fighting chance against the final onslaught of Mordorís army.

The questionable decision I refer to is the one to buy trebs. I feel it wouldíve been better to keep making rangers as your knights could easily deal with his catas, and rangers are more effective against trolls/mumaks/naz. But as it was, Mordorís late game proved devastating once again. If anyone else has ever seen 1.03 Mordor used to better effect, I would like to see it!


Entertainment Value: 7

Overall Rating: 7
