This was a fairly decent game his early game was a lot better than mine he got 3 gob lairs and so I knew I wouldn't be able to get Naz out in time so I spammed trolls. For some reason he didn't attack me but just camped at his outposts so I attacked a few of them then finished him off with my army at his base. biggrin.gif


Review by: StuntedAzrael

Starting positions:
Mordor/Thrandy - East
Gondor/S|lverKn|ght - West


A match between skilled players. Gondor took the upper hand early game with successful creeping and some harassment of Mordor farms. Mordor recovered by spamming trolls. Gondor answered by going archers and rangers supported by Faramir and Boromir but he waited too long to form an army and at one point Mordor just had too many trolls for Gondor to tackle.


Nice game from you. Your win was deserved but you had 2 serious advantages: host and Fangorn map which is a bliss for Mordor. I would suggest to keep an eye (your eye) out for his Heal so you can immediately counter it with your eye (Sauron's eye smile.gif ). Concetrate on creeps more, he got most of them. Harads are also very viable here. Well played.


Your start was great. You claimed farms, harassed his, and went creeping. Horses also were nicely used. However your play deteriorated as the game went on. You lost needlessly 2 batts of horses to 1 troll. Watch your minimap. I felt that it was a mistake by going with outposts that fast. Too much money is spent when Gondor needs speed above else to win in this circumstances. Good game.

Highlight of the match:
It's always annoying to see Gollum stealing hard-earned loot from creeps. Tricksy...whistling.gif

Well, I always use eye if I see Gondor healing. It's better than land.

Oh I thought you meant it liked negated Heal or something, nvm.

You are right but but on this map it's typically better for Mordor to use Land b4 Eye (imo, at least) because it forces Gondor to delay GtW by getting EW. wink.gif If you go Eye b4 land, and you have to buy land in order to get Industry and Darkness, you won't even be able to use it after maybe the first use because Gondor will have creeped with knights by then and will have sufficient PP to get EW. smile.gif

You could be right there but that could hurt you early game. Without eye its harder to stop those 2 soldiers.
