Sometimes reviews can seem strange, Il give you that. In referense to the date this game was played I think silver is just a bit high ^^

If its the Thunder-Chen game I watched, rohan threw the victory away in a very noobish way....to a ladderrush. And isen didnt play too well, thus allowing rohan to get a fast moot up and allmost loosing.

think you need at least 8 trolls there 1 each to mow down lego and eowyn cus at least 1 will die to hawk strike (and then to ara) and 1 to smite (and then to ara as well). But then u have 4 trolls pummeling ara with eye and the 2 that are left will chase and kill eowyn and lego.


Finaly watched the replay.

Its easy, ignore Aragorn or knock him over and go for legolas with all 4 trolls instead, big micro blunder of zoid imo. By targeting the toughest hero, you just commit suicide AND gain nothing. Just a general blunder of chen to venture out with lego and eowyn when trolls are roaming. Legolas dies superfast to trolls under eye, and after that (you sacrifice your trolls that way though, but it doesnt matter much); nazgul owns everything.

I must admit I still think this is a pretty overrated game, but one must appreciate the comedy factor. Very intertaining.

About the strats. Just spam more trolls after your got that naz. In Darkness hes heros cant do much vs massed trolls, who would have saved your base 2 times. Chens heros is simply allowed to own the map for a LONG time, and its so easy to stop with trolls, once you have darkness. With good troll micro that will end many games, if not, get mumakill or catas (guarded by trolls = pwnage), you could eaven build an army of orc archers and mass leadership (drummers, wk, eye, darkness) as it is surprisingly effektive. You did 3 naz instead, and microed them well, but the game could have ended much sooner (and been more boring, the nazguls was funny tongue.gif) When you do a cataspam (and I dont think its very good without trolls to protect them) attack ground and aim a little in front of aragorn with all your trebs, you lost all and gained nothing (I know you killed lego, but it was a very bad call by chen to put him there anyway) bad micro.

Rohan strat. You MUST have banners when you build an army of rohirrim archers, or else nazgul just tear the army apart after the scream (as you saw). Rank them with lego or theo, or simply buy banners.
If you run around with legolas and eowyn like that, they WILL be owned once you face someone with decent troll micro. Dont do lego + eowyn if they spam trolls, aragorn + fast archers/fire, or rohirrims with gc, is better. As zoid didnt use hes trolls for a long time (they just stood there, by the cage) you could have used theoden and taken some creeps, you got 0 and you could easily have taken 3.
Try building some elves after you reseach fire, helps you live longer as 3 naz > lego + eowyn. And, troll spam in darkness > hero spam.
