Ok guys, i think it was enough argued about "how much angelito knows" (bah...) and "How big he is" (more bahhh...).
Gidebar placed his statement, i read his post wrong to be honest, (when u write "zsa:.....", i thought u r talking towards zsa...), and now we should go back to the roots.
For the "non-topic" arguers: Stop spamming and tossing here...
For Gidebar: You should perhaps think a bit more about what u write (better: HOW you write..). You registered yesterday, donīt know anyone here (...i guess) and start flaming against other members already. Not the best impression u could leave though....but iīm sure u noticed that by yourself and we all calm down again and talk on a reasonable level....

I was just wondering if Maretti had som corrections to his own building order in the first post of this thread.

Why build behemoths on day seven. Im a noob and wont claim that i know more than anyone about this game. I never participate in the discussions i just read threads to learn. But i don't understand why you should'nt buy them earlier if you can count on resources for castle and so on....

If you have enough money ofcourse you might aswell build it earlier. Often you will have to trade though to get it and its best to trade day 7, so that you dont trade more than you have to.

In generel players are better now than when I wrote the original post, so today there isnt time for the dbl build. Week 3 you have to be ready or your opponent will attack you in your area or empty the hivearea.

Does that mean that you see stronghold as a bit more inferior to other towns than you thought before since you dont have the time for double building?

Read the man's sig : )

excluding Jebus and Balans (cos i like to exclude them) and taking into account True Random (which i happen to like most than any other template) StrongHold is as vital as any other - hope you like my answer : )

I just tried to start a discussion about how the development has been in strength of the different towns since the game was founded... I mean, strategys, knowledge and speed has changed a lot since the game came out.

Yes. I see it as an average town on balance now with rampart as a clear number 1. The starting area is to poor compared to grass areas and its often difficult to get ancient behemoths early week 3 which is the time you need them. And without the abs your mass haste attack which is supposed to crumble the opponent is suddenly not that strong since the behemoths lack in speed and power. On the other hand (if you pick heroes) having the best hero in the game will allways give you an edge.

On jebus however which is another very popular template I see stronghold as number 1.

I found out the difference between the different forums early since i am only interested in h3...

Thank you maretti it was your answer i was looking for. It would my guess that it is the same case on normal randoms from the complete version as on balance.

I'm not well versed on templates or truly competitive multiplayer, but stronghold is a pretty kick-butt town, in my opinion.

Cheap, strong creatures and Crag Hack make a pretty good combination. Who needs magic anyways?

Well haste is of course a pretty important spell but that's obvious.

How do you secure that you can rush a rampart player if assumed that rampart goes first because of pegasus (if no speed artifacts and ground bonus) And moreover how do you in that specific situation make it more difficult for the opponent to defend the GE's if he goes first?

he defends - he looses

stronghold is about offense, same goes if you're against Stronghold, just offend them : )
i.e. - the moment you get the chance - cast exp haste and kill whatever - don't worry 'bout little pointy-ears archers

Infact, if he goes first its not bad at all, providing he doesnt have mass haste aswell.

Because when he wait with his pegasis, it means his next fastest unit is most probably green dragons speed 10.

This means you move with all of your unit - including the behemots (6+5=11 speed).

Otherwise, if you really want to be first (maybe you plan to kill his pegasis right away), the way to do it to have angels in your army.

Maybe 75% of the games you have at least 1 angel from griffin conservatorie.

The problem offcourse is that he may have angels aswell... so its important to check his army, and check how his army is placed.

If he have angels and pegasus, and his angels are top - they will be first. So, it will be clever to let him attack you, so he will be first. Most of the times he will wait with angels, and its your turn with your angels. You kill his pegasus, and then you can go with the behemots (and goblins if you decide to replace orcs for angels, and cyclops if you have them at all).

However, Haste is a 1st level spell and one that even Crag Hack will probably learn. I take those as a given.
