Re: What do you find to be the worst unit in the default era

Got to be HI. It is a waste of 19 gold vs most factions except undead and dwarves....then for undead, it is too slow to retreat at night and will get killed by DAs easily. for dwarf, it has trouble hitting dwarves in hill/mountain and outlaws anywhere and suffers the same hard-to-retreat problem at ...

Re: What do you if your teammate is a newb?

Nothing is impossible. If you think it is COMPLETELY impossible to beat 2 good players, then you need more practice... It's true that it may be VERY hard, but it is indeed possible. EDIT: Also, if you consider yourself a really good player, and you only play against good players, I suggest you name...

What if you know that is impossible? By means of "good opponents", I mean, they ARE good, not the kind that you play well you can 1 vs 2.

Re: What do you if your teammate is a newb?

The thing about continuing and "do-your-best" is that your opponents are good players, and they will just kill off your newb ally and do all sort of tricks on you. You know what they are doing but are helpless as they outnumber you in terms of leveled units and income. Basically you can fight on for...

What do you if your teammate is a newb?

Hi, I made this post to see how people react to this matter in multiplayer. It's a 2 vs 2 with random people you don't know, your opponents are good players and your teammate just took a turn where he attacked with all his army on open ground at wrong time of day. He is going to lose entire army in ...

Re: Knalgans vs Wose

Movement is the key here. Wose is too slow to react to time of day. So defence at day time in village or hill/mountain with dwarves. Then trap and kill the woses at night with fighter and thief - Woses are too slow to run away when they want to...

Re: This is how I get beat: Undead Vs. Knalgans

Stage 2: We both recruit more firepower, and close in on the middle like hungry vultures. Most maps have 1 or even 2 secluded passages near the side (often a mountain road or similiar) and at this point he often sends either a fast scouting unit or a sturdy dwarf guard to walk throught one of these...

Re: Fighting Mass Footpads as Undead

Hi 5dPZ, Thought it might have been you when I saw (ironically) your name in that first conversation about this topic I linked to in my first post. Yes, as I stated above, I was too slow swinging north. However, I was not trying to ignore you or disregard your advice. I had just committed way too f...

Re: Fighting Mass Footpads as Undead

Hi Boulis, I was your ally in this game. You played fine, but not as good as our opponents. Currently, due to overpowered foodpads, UD has hard time beating dwarves. It is not your fault that you can't beat your opponent in the south. However, what fails the game is that while you can't beat your op...

Re: Playing Northeners

If grunts make up 40% or less of your totol army, you are newb northerners
If grunts make up 60% of your totol army, you are ok northerners
If grunts make up 80% of your totol army, you are good northerners
If grunts make up 100% of your totol army, you are godly northerners

Re: Random Side in Multiplayer

BUMPing this for a possible addon, or mainline option for 1.9

Maybe combine current 1 vs 1 random map addon for ladder; make the addon working for 2 vs 2 random maps + random team/side.

Re: How to play - Undeads vs Drakes - Huumy

On topic: Ok, now I'm convinced. Skirmishers are a critical unit for drakes in this match-up. If undead will continually use their s.archer/ghost/ghouls ZoC and resistances to make a hard to break ZoC wall, then skirmishers are the perfect solution, just ignore ZoC and hit the adepts anyway. It's a...
