View Full Version : New Strategy

It seems everyone has underestimated a single unit that wields immense power. I will tell you what this unit is, and how to use it.

I've been noticing many people who spam Giants and have Merics to back them up. I usually build an army of Speartons and rush pass the Giants and get to the statue while the Giants slowly stumble back, but some use Resilience. So how do you defeat this strategy? Do the same thing, and build Giants? No!

I have found the solution. In fact, I believe I have built the most time-conserving and effective army.

6 Spearton in shield wall
2 Merics
1 Giant Fully Grown
4 Albowtross with Flaming Bolts

And... your solution to the Giants

2 MAJIKILL

It seems everyone has disliked Majikill from the beginning. 1st, they're slow. 2nd, you actually have to BUY other effects. 3rd, they're costly on Mana.
But if you want to defeat the giants, Majikill are the answer.

I'll tell you how to properly utilize this army. Rush to the center as soon as you can usually with Spearton. This is CRUCIAL. Buy Tower Spawn and place the Spearton in shield wall. Also research Shield Bash for later on. Research all the Majikill abilities and buy a Majikill. Send him behind your Spearton shield wall. If you see any enemy units, use Shield Bash to stun the enemy and use Electric Wall to kill them. Okay, now buy 2 Albowtross and 1 single Meric. Make sure the Meric is on Hold Command. Get Blazing Bolts for the CrossBowers. Grow the Giant and send him to the middle once you have this army. Now buy 2 more Albowtross, 1 more Meric, and another Majikill. This will take time but the results are worth it. After this, buy Tower Spawn 2. SEND 4 of your miners to the enemy side to get them killed, as this lowers your population. Buy a few Spearton and keep them at your base for backup. Make sure your units stay BEHIND the shield wall.

After this, SLOWLY advance with your Spearton in front on Shield Wall, or LURE your opponent's army so you can defeat them.

Majikill are useless if you can't use them properly. Put them on Hold Command behind your Speartons, and use Electric Wall for the front line of enemy units. Poison the Giants if there are any. Alternate between wizards so you can do these constantly. Once your enemy is mostly wiped out, send your Majikill to the center and have your Spearton kill the Miners. Then retreat back to the center. After you're fully healed, attack the statue. It goes MUCH faster with Majikill.

Remember, there are 2 elements to Victory.

1. Early Attack

To do this build Miners early to get a strong economy

2. Strong Army

The units I just described are CRUCIAL. REPLACE THEM AS SOON AS THEY DIE.

Hope this works it worked amazingly for me.

I don't usually use Magikill(the enemy will sneak to my Magikill and kill him first) but Magikill is a great supporter for the whole army(I use 2 Giants, 4 Merics and 1 magikill to kill 5 Giants! I surprised the enemy!)

That's why you use Speartons in a Shield Wall. Use Shield Bash to momentarily stun the enemy and then use the Magikill to kill them.

Lol, Magikill is the official name for Magikill(of course) Don't you saw that the reaction of them is SOOOO slow that when they bash their shield the enemy had run past them(lol).

I love the reasoning. Unfortunately this won't work in practice against a good opponent. Shield wall and bash unfortunately does not stop enemies from rushing and killing your magikill. You may stun them once, but then you have a long cool down before you can do it again.

Alternatively, they just stay out of range of electric wall and kill everything else (the other spells kinda suck against armored units).

I would just destroy this with my own strategy focused around Giants/Merics. The Merics would just heal the poison easily and the Giants would kill each Magikill in 1-2 shots. You'll get 1 shot off per magikill before it dies.

You're not getting my point. I want the Magikill to stay out of reach from EVERYTHING. This has worked against opponents with 1900 ratings and more. I forgot to mention, after Shield Bash is used put your Speartons on attack mode. Giants are difficult to control and they will attack the Speartons no matter what. Try to keep your Majikill out of range.



I would just destroy this with my own strategy focused around Giants/Merics. I usually get around 10 Giants and 15 Merics so any attacks thrown at me will be wiped away easily. The Merics would just heal the poison easily and the Giants would kill each Magikill in 1-2 shots. You'll get 1 shot off per magikill before it dies.

Do I have to say it again? The Giants are difficult to control and will attack the armoured Speartons. The Magikill should stay back and get healed often. I can manuever several controls to defeat this strategy.



Lol, Magikill is the official name for Magikill(of course) Don't you saw that the reaction of them is SOOOO slow that when they bash their shield the enemy had run past them(lol).

I'm sorry I didn't quite understand that. Did you just say my strategy was useless? Typing sarcasm is a bit difficult, I know.

The above is what I said, don't edit my words to help you spread completely false information.

Giants are rather easy to control where as magikill are quite hard to control, especially when you are trying to micro your units in attacks while making more units back home. Also, Magikill's shorter range makes it hard to keep them safe. And if I sneak some archers in my mix of giants and merics, I can use archers to help snipe the Magikill. Also, Bladed Fire was pointing out that you spelt Magikill with a 'j' in the OP.

Nooo, I meant as OFFENSIVE TOOL. Not suicide for more space. I mean like actually massing miners and then attacking with them. Also, even with the hustle, they are inferior to 2 swords (which is miner's pop equivalent) although idk about 1 sword (no rage) vs 1 miner with hustle?

I use Magikill as decoys sometimes, but it is a double edged sword.

I usually have them electric wall either the frontline troops or the miners, Fulminate their backfield or their massed swordswrath, and poison spray the giants and the backfield.

When they have many a giant out, I let my Speartons rush the statue and use my 2-3 Magikill as decoys, using Merics to keep the Magikill alive as long as possible. Because the enemy will focus on the Magikill, my Spearton army can rush the opposing statue and I will win.

I know what some of you are thinking. "Magikill are expensive, so you're an idiot."

Here are some reasons WHY I do this.

(1) Magikill (and Merics) are high value targets, like a Medic or Sniper in TF2. If you don't focus on it early on, you might end up losing due to it's damage/healing benefits. But if you do focus on it, it's potential protectors can damage you earlier and faster. The enemy will usually focus fire on your Magikill and Merics, causing a distraction. If they focus on the Magikill first, he will last longer due to the Merics. If they focus on the Merics first, the Magikill will last longer due to the Merics being attacked first.

(2) It's nearing endgame anyways, and your primary goal is statue damage output. You can lose most of your units as long as you win, which is the longterm goal of the game. So why not delay the opponent and rush their statue?

(2)

Not so if the power is enough to 1-hit-ko or 2-hit-ko the magikill.

You see. 1 miner is 150 gold and 2 pop. 1 sword is 150 gold and 1 pop. Figure out the rest :D

KrayZStick
12-29-2012, 07:45 PM
Idk why you guys are talking about using miners as offensive units. Miners + Gold Mines & Statues = Win

Miners + Fighting (or should I call it suicide?) = What you think is strategy.

DragonFrost
12-29-2012, 07:58 PM

Also miners praying and mining don't always make you win (although they certainly need to do that to win (to have a chance of winning)

This is a good strategy but unfortunately you lost all respect because you CHANGED someone's words.

Actually this DOES work on a long map since the Giants will have to go a long time before going back to Garrison, and Giants can hardly fight off a rush on long maps.

Okay then...


Lol, I can't believe he edited your words. Any respect has now just disappeared...

Anyone who lies about their rating shouldn't get any respect in the 1st place. He's 1288, not 1800 like he claimed.

Well when you're just starting out wit 1200 and vsing an opponent with 1289 he's favored, doesn't mean he's good though.

I once went against 1864 person and he left his seat or something because all he had was 2 miners and they weren't even mining.


Lol I never understand why people would use miners as offensive tool....

Well, I have tried 80 miners rush and they ACTUALLY can destroy a statue in 7 sec NO LIE.

Yes the miners take up population and you can kill them off to make more space for the rest of your units.


Units like Giants & Archidons (& maybe Albatrosses) can't shoot past the first target, they also can't shoot past the statue unless they are behind it.

Heh I'm 225 you registered just ahead of me.

? Actually if you're good at commanding you can get your units to focus on a single unit.

Actually, A SwordWrath with or without rage is better than a miner. Strange, I thought pickaxes were good weapons

This forum has many flaws. I'll delete this message if it offends anyone.

The end game is crucial and you must use Giants backed by Swords to win it.

A big problem with his post is that he says to attack early, by making a lot of miners. But if you do that, then you'd have a full population by the time you make your entire army and at that point it becomes who can mass armies the best?

His army takes too long to build.

And while he has a magikill and a few spartans, the opponent may have trained a giant and more spartans. Since his army is a full population army I think it'd be smarter to create magikills last.

Of course I may be wrong, I haven't played the game in like a week since my laptop decided it doesn't want to load stickempires at all.

Yes, I'd like a glance at the rules too. I looked throught the FAQ - there are *hundreds* of links to hundreds of paragraphs. But I dont see anything which is obviously what is and is not allowed. I learned a bit more about BB code and stuff, but come on! Now, I have a good long attention span, but I m not ready to spend hours reading it all, and lets be honest who on Earth would? Most/all of it seems like generic forum stuff.

For example, on another forum I use, when replying you are expected NOT to pull replies from more than 1 poster into one post, unless they are closely related or pulled for comparison purposes.
Your supposed to insert a blank line above and below your inserted comments to make it easier to read and respond etc etc

Yes, I'd like a glance at the rules too. I looked throught the FAQ - there are *hundreds* of links to hundreds of paragraphs. But I dont see anything which is obviously what is and is not allowed. I learned a bit more about BB code and stuff, but come on! Now, I have a good long attention span, but I m not ready to spend hours reading it all, and lets be honest who on Earth would? Most/all of it seems like generic forum stuff.

For example, on another forum I use, when replying you are expected NOT to pull replies from more than 1 poster into one post, unless they are closely related or pulled for comparison purposes.
Your supposed to insert a blank line above and below your inserted comments to make it easier to read and respond etc etc

P.s. lemme check, i'll tell you how to add signatures when i find out how lol
HOW TO ADD A SIGNATURE
1. Click Settings in the top right of the page. (first you gotta be logged in lol)
2. In the left hand side there is a list, search for something that says Edit Signature.
3. Write what you want.
4. Save settings (idk what it's called, maybe OK or Confirm?)

For your clarification, 'posting twice in 1 day' doesnt get you banned.

Its posting and posting again right after yourself like you did in post 56 and 57 which is not liked. Its called double posting.
If you post (say number 57) and another person posts (no. 58) its quite OK for you to post again number 59.
Doing double posting will get you a telling off, not a ban - unless you keep doing it. If you have a 'good reason' I think its OK - Tec is aparently the judge, and he said he generally lets it slide.

I think if you have two completly different things, such as a response to a question asked by another poster, and a new question on a different point, then it is OK to double post, but thats just my feeling on it, and I may be wrong.

It seems everyone has underestimated a single unit that wields immense power. I will tell you what this unit is, and how to use it.

I've been noticing many people who spam Giants and have Merics to back them up. I usually build an army of Speartons and rush pass the Giants and get to the statue while the Giants slowly stumble back, but some use Resilience. So how do you defeat this strategy? Do the same thing, and build Giants? No!

I have found the solution. In fact, I believe I have built the most time-conserving and effective army.

6 Spearton in shield wall
2 Merics
1 Giant Fully Grown
4 Albowtross with Flaming Bolts

And... your solution to the Giants

2 MAJIKILL

It seems everyone has disliked Majikill from the beginning. 1st, they're slow. 2nd, you actually have to BUY other effects. 3rd, they're costly on Mana.
But if you want to defeat the giants, Majikill are the answer.

I'll tell you how to properly utilize this army. Rush to the center as soon as you can usually with Spearton. This is CRUCIAL. Buy Tower Spawn and place the Spearton in shield wall. Also research Shield Bash for later on. Research all the Majikill abilities and buy a Majikill. Send him behind your Spearton shield wall. If you see any enemy units, use Shield Bash to stun the enemy and use Electric Wall to kill them. Okay, now buy 2 Albowtross and 1 single Meric. Make sure the Meric is on Hold Command. Get Blazing Bolts for the CrossBowers. Grow the Giant and send him to the middle once you have this army. Now buy 2 more Albowtross, 1 more Meric, and another Majikill. This will take time but the results are worth it. After this, buy Tower Spawn 2. SEND 4 of your miners to the enemy side to get them killed, as this lowers your population. Buy a few Spearton and keep them at your base for backup. Make sure your units stay BEHIND the shield wall.

After this, SLOWLY advance with your Spearton in front on Shield Wall, or LURE your opponent's army so you can defeat them.

Majikill are useless if you can't use them properly. Put them on Hold Command behind your Speartons, and use Electric Wall for the front line of enemy units. Poison the Giants if there are any. Alternate between wizards so you can do these constantly. Once your enemy is mostly wiped out, send your Majikill to the center and have your Spearton kill the Miners. Then retreat back to the center. After you're fully healed, attack the statue. It goes MUCH faster with Majikill.

Remember, there are 2 elements to Victory.

1. Early Attack

To do this build Miners early to get a strong economy

2. Strong Army

The units I just described are CRUCIAL. REPLACE THEM AS SOON AS THEY DIE.

Hope this works it worked amazingly for me.

What if they used Giants with Magikill?

So, me and FR0ST tested this strategy against 2 things. Giant Spam and Albowtross spam.

Against Giant Spam, the giants can target key units such as magikill and merics. Magikill especially when they come forward to cast short-range spells. The speartons follow next, eventually you have (potentially) a giant, 1 or 2 albows and your back-up speartons. The enemy giant spam is gone though. So technically a victory, but a very close one too.

Against albow spam, if the enemy gets an albow ASAP, your spearton is screwed at the center. After that, tower spawn 1 and the albows harrass your miners screwing you over.

DarknessLight
01-06-2013, 01:15 PM
i don't care WHAT you say, 6 speartons won't do crap against 8 giants, fully grown, the magikill do so little damage its laughable, and only 2 merics? Seriously?

Actually... you use the spells from the Magikill. In case you don't know how to use them, then I suggest you continue with your Giant spam strategy.

I didn't mean a SINGLE Spearton, I meant a few. I usually get around 14 miners ( I know it's a lot of population but you can sacrifice them at the end) and build Spearton once I get these. And if you only have 1 Allbowtross by then, I would send my Spearton to attack your miners. Allbowtross take a long time to load and they have low speed. Without ground units, there isn't much adequate defense against my Speartons.

Ummm, notice spearton is singular in the albow spam scenario. And he kinda did use the albow to kill miners.

Any SENSIBLE player would call back their Spearton once they saw the Allbowtross approaching, then he would either make Allbowtrosses himself or make Giants.

I have to agree with SolitaryFear, there are different strategies for different armies. My strategy is GENERAL, meaning it will win against 4/5 strategies. I might make a specific post against Allbow spam.

I did call them back. Do I look like an idiot? The albows can just chase the spearton back to the castle where there are no anti-air defenses since you got a spearton ASAP, you have 50 gold plus some mana. AKA screwed.

I never mentioned anything about the beginning. Of course, praying for 50 mana and then buying a Spearton at the beginning is really quite stupid. I meant after you get around 7 miners, perhaps? I usually get a castle archer as it lives until your statue crumbles and you don't need to replace it. Plus it's adequate protection.

READ THIS!!!

Pressure the opponent in the beginning. If you see he has no defense ATTACK. If you can kill his defense ATTACK. Pressure him. If you lose the middle and cannot regain it, in essence, you have already lost. The only was you will win is if

Your opponent has rating below 1500

Left the game
