Warning, this strategy is very cheap and noobish and most of the time works. Giant massing MIGHT be defeated if you're versing a player with a rating 1700+

Personally, I do not use it unless I lagged out , lost unfairly .. and decide to get back my win OR for video demonstrations.

Well, get your flame shields ready men, Tec's a commin!

On topic: It's not very effective against aggresive enemies I'd assume.

Well he did get a spearton, castle archer and built a wall to prevent early attackers. So aggressive enemies wouldn't do it either

In that video, it seems like the player is just sitting there gathering miners and leaving himself open to attack by tanks who can withstand his castle archer like Spearton or Juggerknight.

By the time his swordwrath got there, I would have captured the middle, had two crawlers, and a juggerknight out, while researching charge.
As order, I would have 2 swordwrath and an archidon already. But as you said, it most likely won't work against anyone over 1700 rating.
What was the song?

Very nice strategy, thanks for ya help, I defeated an early-middle match Giants rusher....with counter Giants...
I have had a great E-Giant battle or "Clash of the Titans" if that's how ya people want to call.
Each side have ~4-5 E-Giants and i have another E-Giant from tower...Both have lots of meric to keep them alive. And I also have the Mages to counter his Mages.
It was a tough battle but I won.
I really can't see a different way to beat them...since you can't build as much Speartons as before the recent patches.

^^^^

The last giant rusher I went against was the most infuriating match ever. I killed every giant and was headed for the statue, then BAM! Lagged me out so bad I logged out. I would talk more about this, but that would definitely get us off-topic.

Giant massing is consider cheap and most of the time succeeds. Your rating will go up in no time if you keep on doing this. I get this question alot, "you're not actually good noob your opponent just sucks nuts" I agree i'm not good, i can barely stay on the top 100s. I play casually posting new videos here and there that will help other players out in the game. Since the tutorial barely explains much some players who just started find my videos useful. Other players who are actually good do not give a rats ass about them. Just trying to help people.

Some people inboxing me saying do you set up your videos, do you know the opponent etc. No I don't. The opponents I vs. are completely random. If i'm lucky the opponent won't be that good and i could explain the guide even better... no?

Just saw the video. Damn Tec, Y U NO NUMBER 1?!

Seriously, a well fought battle. However, why did you (Tec) have all those Medusa's, and how come most Chaos users don't stack crawlers? Is it the power of a castle archer > crawler?

Something very high tech.... get it? Uggh, I need to stop trying to be funny.

Windows Live Movie Maker... believe it or not. I might be switching to something more advance.

and since we're talking about videos everybody
here is me getting my ass kicked by CaptainCorps:

Well this strategy doesn't always work, and not just against rating 1700+. I am rating 1650 and I beat mr sticky when I asked him to use this strategy against me (was gonna use it if it was good enough). P.s. I was in the 1700s before, but I'm not now :d (hint: rushing? His defenses aren't that great) He managed to get 1 giant out... But I won (lots of speartons and monks :p)

Dude, I have a rating of 1400++, but I beat up to 7 giants.
It's not about the ranking, it's about sending the message.
