Most Overrated Creature(s)

what do you think some of the most overrated creature(s) are? personally i would have to say grand elves. they are embarrassingly weak defensively. most of the time i maul them with magic before they can even attack. also when you get in there face they simply suck.

peace,--ave

Thats because they arent meant to fight creatures that "get in their face", but as far from it as possible.

i know what you are saying. like they are good for taking around to clear the area vs the right type of creatures.

but i find almost all of the time they end up being useless in major fights vs another hero's forces because they get mauled right away. i rarely see them merely shoot in a major fight vs a hero army.

But they are very useful in the beginning. They deal nice damage with both shots, and they can be used to fight mine guards and clear your area from other monsters. That means more resources.

what you say is true about the clearing ability. they are good at that.

personally i just find it more important to have a creature that can be clutch in a battle vs a good hero. i would rather have griffins,evil eyes,dragonflies,ice elementals,or cerberi. and these guys aren't bad at taking mines either...

so all in all i think the grand elves are overrated because they often do poorly in big battles vs good heroes, and other creatures can clear the map well too at this level.

I think level 7 week 1 is overated if its at the expence of  a citadel and castle.
1 level 7 does not compensate for all the hp lost through levels 1-6.

Grand elves together with cents makes the rampart force week1 probably the strongest one of all towns. It is important to take advantage of such an army. Chain the army from hero to hero, plan all moves; "how can I take all in this area without losing too much time of main exploring on the road on a normal random?" This game is all about speed. the quickest player will usually win. With this kind of army you can take out big meanie monsters with almost any hero, losing nothing. fighting around week1 with lots of heroes is often the key to gain a great army AND great economy. This is a tactic that requires extreme thinking and strategy, and will need years of multiplayer experience to work perfectly, if it ever is possible to always do so. Try it out, train on it. Play it online. How much better did you become with this kind of strategy? Do you still think Evil Eyes would give you the same advantage? and is the evil eyes this much better in a main fight?

The quicker player will, as stated above almost always win. You will understand this when your opponent kills ALL your army on your MAIN HERO week4 on a normal random map with ONLY his level 7 units

Lastly, I will point you in the right direction go to the MSN gaming zone and test your skills. In order to get great games going with nice opponenst I would recommend you to register for one, or better, both the following tournaments Tournament of honor or/and Wizards and warriors

Good luck gaming Hope to see you online soon

Anyway, marks men are overrated I think. They are like a worse version of grand elves and archer dwelling isn't required for other creatures.
