Hey all. I'm just starting to push past the 1500s and working my way up through the 1600s. I just had a few questions to ask the forums in general.

When attacking I hear two viewpoints

1. Select all units and attack a single unit at a time

2. Use the attack button.

Which is better?

Most of my losses come to 4-7 allbowtross, a mage or two, and speartron using shield wall

(What If Scenario)My army consists of 2 shadowrath, 5 archers, 3 allbowtross, 1 mage, few speartron.

Which army would/ should win.

In terms of a higher level player 1900 up- my micro is complete shit. I really do need some help.

Last question- is collecting enough miners to mine all gold early in the game and then killing them off later worth it?

Thanks.

Since units do the same amount of damage, regardless of their health, it is generally better to kill the lowest health units first. For facing Order, this is easy.

Target Magikill first (since they are very high damaging)
Then swordwrath (since rage is deadly)
Then you can chase away or kill archers
Then Speartons or Shadowrath are the next to die
This leaves probably giants, albowtrosses and merics.

Albowtrosses should be targeted first, unless giants are in the way, in which case killing the giants is the way to go. Merics can be killed earlier, since healing can give an edge.

I can help you with micro-in your army vs army question it all comes back to micro so...

And it is worth it to kill the miners if you are out of population.

Yes, i am a 1900s

This is what I do:

1Magikill because of spells
2shadowrath because of shinobi and high damage
3merics to stop them from healing
4Albowtrosses if they have flaming arrows
5swordrath if they have rage, because it deal high damage
6albowtrosses they deal a good amount of damage
7archers deal normal damage
8swordrath if they don't have rage. they are weak
9speartons, they are tanky and take too much time to kill.
10giants! they have the most defence. however, they kill 1 unit at a time even through they have high damage.

I think making all your units attack 1 unit is better!

Are you serious? Shinobi ninjas arent really an issue,take swords out first.

They will go shinobi immediatly, cant hit them.. when there out of cloak,your magikill/giant/merics willl be dead.. pointless too kill them before swords then.
