Ok i played with DMK and he's not bad. We played 2 games. First one was my mordor vs his gondor and the second one was my isen vs his gondor. We were gonna finish off with 1 more game, my crappy rohan vs his gondor but he had to leave during the match. He did the right thing but i guess i won by out microing him both games. I think he has \potential. Check these out Horus, Mach.

My review:

DMK is a good player and shows potential to get better. IMO, he is the kind of player we want in DIVA/DEVA.

The two games he played were pretty good. You have to consider that Angra is a great player, and he probably would have beaten anyone but a pro... so we weren't counting on seeing DMK win.

First game: ignore the creeps and go directly for his settlements with hobbit. Using sword, the hobbit can take out the laborers very quickly. Use soldiers to defend farms. Get cavalry out EARLY and get horse shields as soon as possible. Use cavalry to creep (on Fords) because they can handle wargs easily and quickly. Once you have horse shields (3 bats of cavalry), rush his base and take out his troll cage followed by orc pit and citadel. If he has all furnaces, take out the citadel first, because he's probably building a nazgul. After he gets trolls, you are going to need archers or gandalf -- or stoneworker and upgraded towers. Mordor can be a tough opponent for Gondor, especially if you let them build up. You microed forces well and used troop formations, elven wood, etc. properly.

Second game: good idea to go with soldier spam vs isengard. However, since you really need upgrades, build all blacksmiths inside your castle (6 if possible) to get the maximum reduction in upgrade costs. I liked your use of cavalry to harrass settlements and creep, but you need to work to keep them alive longer. Just avoid those pikes and force him to build lots of them so you can hit him with upgraded soldiers. The trick with isengard is to get them to commit to one strategy that you know you can counter, and then be fully prepared to counter it. Again, you showed good micro and troop formations, etc.

Finally, in both games he never gave up, even when faced with losing his castle. I liked seeing that.

Anyone else have any comments?

thanks guys!

my major mistake was indeed the creeps, and not scouting with pippin. I wasted an elven wood. And the secong game I realized I should have gotten all smiths. Next time I'll know what to do, but that is my first match against a "pro".

I have never played a game like that before. I used to just play QM and skirmish tongue.gif So I need some practice, but I'm almost ready for a re-match or two Angra biggrin.gif

DMK, I'm gonna need an ID created on clanwars.cc (not the forums there, the actual "join the league" part) so I can send you an invite.

Once you get a name that will fit both there and with [DEVA] in front of it in the actual online section of the game, then you'll be set to play games.

Welcome aboard!

just to clarify: on cw make a name w/o the DEVA tag (i.e. Steeva)

and online, when you sign on in the game; make the same name including the tag (i.e. [DEVA]Steeva)

just to avoid mistakes smile.gif
