Hi guys! im one of the few people in this forum who plays on x box live still, i been able to incorporate some of your strategies to my games on x box live , i know that the patch im playing on is the 1.4 if im correct but im posting here since it seems like im the only one on the 360 forum ( but im trying to bring it back to life), i just want to hear some opinions or strategies on what to do against an early goblin rush on the 1.4 patch , as we all know goblins are faster than most MOTW ( not including cavalry ofcourse) and they are dirt cheap and that can be a problem !! , i been in trouble a couple of times trying to defend from an early goblin spam with SOG .
i usually start like this : RC, tree , brax ,SOG ,tree , SOG , SOG , tree sog spam , tree and then i go for archery range .
i allways send my very first batallion of SOG deep in to enemy field to creep and then to try to do some harrastment with RC and at least take a cave or 2 down , usually by this time i have the goblins allready in my field harrasing my biuldings too , wich is ok at the begining since im going SOG spam, i usually take down the first waves while im expanding too and if my first batallion of SOG is still alive i keep them a lil busy for a bit but once they keep coming from the flanks and center it becomes a problem since SOG are slower , i have tryed to go for stables but since i have to keep the flow of SOG to keep the goblins back and off my resources especially when they get poison blades , i get overwelmed really fast , and since Gondor archers suck i dont even bother with them untill i get rangers . i find it kind of hard to get early horses and i go for theoden instead .

and since im loosing time chasing goblins with SOG next thing you know the half trolls come in and they are even faster than goblins , im allways put in the situation of having to play defence with goblins specially against good players . hopefully you guys can help .

and please dont ask me for a replay theres no such thing for the 360.
