I dunno why I was so lazy not to make wells and shit, definitely had this one in the bad at some point and then gave it away.
Decent throw, would rate a perfect 5/7.

Looks interesting from one perspective but I will take a good look first if it is to make a review (after many Nubito's requests).Too bad it looks profound what the outcome is though cuz I always want the suspense to full me while watching a good replay but Nubito doesnt give a damn about my inner sentimentalism .
Noob.

REVIEW

dU|RanDoM |Race: MotW


VS

SeñorEcthelion |Race: MotW

Quite entertaining MotW mirror followed by similar tactics overall and being a decisive battle mainly based on speed and micro.

dU|RanDoM

First of all, it was fortunately interesting to see two different start tactics and yours particularly contributed to let you get the upper hand at early and middle game.Here are my general thoughts.

-Forward Rax and managing to creep the 2 middle warg lairs + your upper right warg and troll lair was quite a success giving that Bunito is generally fast enough to creep at least half if not most lairs at his 1v1 style against any player.

-Smart choice aiming for the inn units cuz they are quite handy at these mirrors but you didn't protect it long enough to have a good pike-counter unit to freely use your cav and wipe out his defense he was struggling to strengthen by using his well.

-You successfully used most of your units, perfect timing and micro at early game but after the half of middle game you suddenly lost control of some of your important troups/heroes such as Rohirrim (down left ,a troup was lost for nothing standing idle after destroying an RBs) ,some of your inn units as mentioned before and Boromir too.

-Would be wiser to send them back to your base if you are not sure enough if they can harass alone with swords and it was proved that at this point it was a bad choice to reveal them and show your opponent that you've captured the Inn--->leads him directly to it so make sure to either NOT reveal your inn units when you are not sure enough you have its control and try to better use them for defense or use the trees for stealth to hide them.

-Try avoiding placing your stables at the front and if you do,change its rotation to safely summon your Knights/Rohs .I had the feeling you were easily distracted by the defense of your forward raxes and their maintenance on the field rather than also focusing on your basic defense around your base.

-Poor micro when losing most of your archers/sogs against his cav given that you actually had pikes nearby and being onhost as well.

-Perhaps Faramir or Theoden would grealy support your defense in contrast with risking some precious time gathering resources for Aragorn once you realized you actually lost control after Ecthelion summoned his Aragorn and biult up his defense for a proper rush.

-Generally dominant early game due to faster made cavalry and wiping out his slow infantry, quite proper defense (e.x your stables structure was a good save) but poor performance due to lesser attention and lower speed later on.


SeñorEcthelion

-The specific forward rax tactic requires you to be more aggressive than your opponent if you actually aim for the troll lair next in case you want to get the full benefit of it... but you surprised me by not getting advantage of it and focus on how you will successfully harass his first RBs & also his quite valuable stables with the aid of the Inn units if possible.

-Try aim for one building at a time, aiming for two close built ones will most likely cost your valuable rush and it actually did (both his stables and archery range for instance were not destroyed with the first attemt).

-Once his stables were destroyed, your precious infantry-pike free attacks would be considered a greater threat combined with your hobbit power against his base,hence you wouldn't have to summon that power to just destroy his dilapidated structures.

-Mediocre early micro given your skills but reasonable at one point given that you were facing a strong enough opponent against his own host with that particular mu which was a mirror.

-Horrible choice of spamming infantry-pikes free troups after knowing he had enough troups of Rohs on the field.So much money wasted and many free power points were given that moment.

-Decent perception of how to counter his outnumbered units at early/mid game by improving your micro/macro and making sure he won't get advantage of the Inn.

-Enthralling enough to see you getting more focused and greatly defend against his not so well low focused-poorly prioritized attacks that could easily deteriorate your poor first half of middle game.

-Well made harassment and accurate safe of your remained half dead cav units for a needed recovery.

-In general terms, slow paced early game caused by wrong choices regarding your early harassment but quickly improved performance gathering up your mess and fixing your barely unfixable defensive/aggressive state.



Some things to point out for both of you.
-Was sadly unexpected not to see at least Faramir BEFORE Aragorn by seeing the choice of your tactics.Fara should not be underestimated in MotW mirrors as an early hero, he can truly make the difference in matters of defense at early and middle game due to his greatly supported role as a hero (LD for infantry+cav) + his buffed Wounding Arrow.By making him at the very end after having lost 80% of control of the game is actually a pointless and hopeless summon.This didn't affected ecthelion at the end in contrast to Random but it would highly cuz a massive effect at his early game.

-Same applies for Theoden/Eomer who could be the key option to strengthen your attacks once you both tried Knights and Rohs instead of the casual duo of Boro/Ara.

-Aim for the high leveled RBs when you know your rush won't be able to be any more profitable than actually destroying a lvl 3 farm.

-Also none of you used Longshot of your nearly dead Dunedain archers.Knowing they gonna soon die,its pitty not to let them leave their last mark and damage each of your enemy units with their longshot ability.

They might sound as minor details but those do matter in such mirrors.

Excelente my greeko! i didn't expect you to review, actually. Thenks.
I didn't even pretend to upload, but Randy gave me permission, and someone who watched the replay before post told me it worths uploading. If this replay was more than a 8, i have others, similar. Precisely MotW comebacks through Aragorn after a early game fucked-up.
