Well, with all due honesty, this is the saddest replay I had ever seen. The reason is simple. I have seen Paladin host in gr, and he always puts this description: "1vs1 noob", so it is quite unsavvy to engage willingly into a noob bashing game, then post it.

The funny part is the name you gave to building forward mines, but this merry fact still does not erase the gloominess of the game. And to masquerade your game proficency, you made it longer than necessary wasting valuable lifespan.

IMHO, you can post noob bashing as much as you like, but maybe avoid doing so purposefuly when the opponent mentions it in their description.

I played a good dwarven game with the classic dwarven strat and wanna show it. how you execute it (with siege eqip, ups or heroes or without, is up to the player. thats all. I didnt made the game longer than necessary. The annoying mounted heroes postphoned the game. And I lost 4 games altogether yesterday and today. (also rather short games, all offhost). So mind your own business.

-----> anyway I am doing a break from the game from now on. Because I have achieved tons of great replays in rotwk and bfme2 in both official + unofficial patches.

sure thing bro. I am not trying to spike some fight here. I didn't critique his person, though, just his actions within this particular replay. Just 2 cents of opinion after watching that.

It's a great loss for the replay section mate. You'll be missed. Waiting for your speedy comeback.


PS: 10k guardians+axes, no phalanx is prolonging a game beyond its expiry date.

PS: I built very few axe throwers, ---> lots of MoD mainly with Fire arrows vs buildings, but I should have let them aim at the heroes more often. And lots of guardians because they are stronger than phalanxes (and swordsmen are more fun)

I am sure your best whishes aren`t meant seriously/ or are sarcasm/irony whatever...

It is my utmost disappointment that you failed to sense anything but deceit behind my kind wishes. I am no Johnathan Swift, mate.I was heeding Maru's advice and being polite.

MoD + fire suck unless you're facing mumakils and even then it is better to garrison them in towers to avoid the trampling. Axe throwers+ forged blades are usually a better choice both vs tier 1 heroes and buildings due to damage types. I am pretty sure you're very aware of this.


Guardians stronger than phalanx? Now, this is an offensive statement. Specialist damage is better vs PB thanks to nobody but coding? Guardians are better if you want to take down. Phalanx are actually faster and "tankier". (and swordsmen are more fun => now this exactly translates to making games longer than needed).

Anyway, it's completely alright if from your standing point and accumulated experience, you still feel it is the most optimal plan to make MoD and guardians only vs several nazguls+ MoS. Who knows, I might be wrong.

Your last comments on my games (and this aswell) made the impression on me: ´"its a bash game,why you even upload" ? etc..., so ofc I was sceptical (sorry for that), but as I know now that you meant it serious as you said in your last answer,---> I am thankful to you. thx for your good wishes smile.gif <-------
forged blades or the siege hammers for guardians or axes would be good alternative, but I didnt thought really about it/ decided otherwise cause I wanted to include the archery range units in my army, so Fire arrows made more sense to get as the first upgrade in this case for the MoD). I always thought guardians are tankier vs arrows and sword attack dmg and do more dmg to buildings (RB atleast) and units than pikes. pikes mainly vs monsters and cav and UPB`s.

Guardians are better vs swords and RBs indeed. Pikes can tank archers on porcupine better. However, guardians can use charge (need level 2) to get close up to archers and actually win a fight (or just ignore archers and cause damage to RBs / PBs). BUT what I meant better than guardians is : in this case scenario, he had neither archers or swords. Just nazguls, MoS and fortress arrows. Phanlanx work better against all of these elements and faster. HP wise, I am pretty sure Phalanx has more HP ( as it is with most pike units other than shitlonds).

Concerning my previous comment on your other game, that was just my analysis of a game you could have won + a pinch of satire to making reading an essay easier and funnier ( I even faced the same guy, and luck had it that we got the exact same factions, and he tried to same strategy with Legolas+ thrand+ Haldir. He ended up rage quitting the room.. I lost replay along with my hard drive tongue.gif )
