If you have Chaos and you are struggling with giant massers, then you MIGHT be in luck. This strategy might work 70-90% of the time. If not, then their's nothing else I can do. So, here it is:

Start out with the starting miners mining. Then, get 1 miner( for praying) and 1 crawler. Capture the tower with the crawler and also scout the area. Then either get 2 more miners or get a Juggerknight ( for when the miners are exposed or safety precautions). Usually, the opponent will prepare a large group of giants before attacking and if they do then keep on reading. Get about 7 more miners, so you should have 10 miners( 6 on gold 4 on praying),get the tower spawn for harassing the opponent. Then get about 6-8 deads( w/ poison guts) 6-8 juggs( for tanking), 2-3 marrowkia( for reaping), Medusa( optional), and 1-2 of your own giants( with both giant growth levels).

If the giant masser has a magikill, get a medusa to petrify him so he won't be a bother.
If the giant masser has merics, sometimes I ignore them but if they are a problem, use reaper on them and have some of your juggs or deads to kill them.
If its just giants, should be simple just kill them and use reaper on a few of the E giants.

Like I said i'm not entirely sure about this( plus I forgot a little of it:( ). Hope this helps!


Edit: if no wall or castle archers then take out the enemy miners and destroy his/her statue.

This is the worst strategy I've seen. Go on the Order Empire and review my strategy.

This strategy mostly works for me.

Man, I really, really, want to get Chaos
I think Chaos is better than Order to fight against E giants
Because reapers really awesome against giants
And Chaos giants can hit 3 of them in one hit

Is that last point correct? (assuming your in melee range) do you hit 3 giants at once?

Yes, reaper is great, and takes a giant out of the fight for a few seconds. Two marrow can take the giant out permanantly - but that costs you 8 population and a lot of accurate management to neutralize 7 population - it seems awasome when its you giant being controlled, but overall its not as awsom as you may think when on the receiving end. :)

I want Chaos to but not putting hope on it(I'm 13 and my parents don't have paypal and I'm in malaysia), yes, Chaos giants hit 3 units at once(awesome right?). I like the bomber, Juggerknight, Crawler, Eclipsor, Dead, Marrowkai, Medusa and Giant idea(lol, all) for Chaos but no way I can pay before I became adult.

Same :) I dislike (massing) chaos giants, as massing albows (as order) or massing win dating (as chaos, idk if that works, just a theory) owns them especially on big map. The only good thing about egiant is hp and range, while giant has hp and spread damage (useless against decent speed ranged units that can kite cuz the giant can't even hit them lol). Which is why I have never fought a chaos giant player.
P.s. off topic, some chaos player massed bombers... I massed archidons and blew them up from range lol

i dont think reapers ar efective against giants because in a fight the reaper will heve to get close to reap them and not die wich means your giants will have to take damage and the giant that you reap will probally get away and you will have wounded your army just to hury one of theyre giants.

The giant and the juggs are meat shields for the marrowkia so they can reap the giants, magikill, or merics. You can use the deads to poison and kill the reaped giant. I haven't been playing on Stick Empires for a while anyways and I was doing bad with Chaos just because of that. Btw Marrowkia have a good range for the reaper.

I would get more miners and three giants for the end along with a ton of deads.
