    Advice please

    I am a very big fan of deads. In fact when I brought chaos the main reason for doing so was because I deads I love the fact they can poison units and that they are so tanky for backline units.
    My problem is that now I am in the 1600-2000 skill level I run in to very good opponents who wont charge into a juggerknight+dead v Spearton+ archer battle instead their speartons will just mess with my deads and kill them all off and I end up losing as I cant keep up with the DPS my oppenent has aka the Archers survive but the dead are killed and I lose a jugger knight v spear ton + archer battle

    my questions are

    1. if I decide to get eclipsors how many miners should I have on mana to mass produce them (I will have 6-8 on gold by this point) I always brought deads as they are the first ranged units available with the hope of scoring a quick wins which does work 50% of the time.

    2. What am I doing wrong. their must be a way to protect my deads or kill the enemy units before they kill my deads. After all deads are tanks and theirs time to do something about the attacking units.

    3. What are the advantages of using eclipsors they are more expensive so I could get my first dead out quicker than my first eclipsor. But what do I get in return.

    4. I have little experience with eclipsors when are they best used and how are how are they best used. Are they used differently to deads to.

    5. Are eclipsors more competitive at high level play?

    Thank you for my time and with these answers I feel I could be a much better player.

    Eclipsors and deads is all personal preference, though sometimes it matters. Just be sure to get charged and kill the spears. Pull your one dead back and keep attacking. If your spears go for your deads then go for his exposed archers. The player will probably panic and not know what to do, be sure to have efficient micro and work and your upgrades and don't forget to Que up units.

    I personally prefer eclipsors though deads tend to be more trustworthy unless the opponent cannot produce nearly as quickly as you or has made many ground melee units.

    even though it looks like eclipsors and deads have similar power and just personal choice

    but in my experience deads are much more powerful if you can use them efficiently.
    For eclipsors, even you have slightly more pop or eco, you may still lose because wings cannot break spear+meric turtle
    but deads can stop any order turtle efficiently.

    Just like what pumu said, support deads with bombers, then they will be very powerful

    So stop queing Jugger knights and get some bombers?

    And if one dead is getting beaten up by spears retreat it. and then do the same if they target another dead

    how do I go after exposed archers if the archers just retreat deads don't have that option? Would Charge help?

    What about eclipsors do I wait a little longer to start produceing them than deads?

    I'll answer in reverse order

    Eclipsors are going to take a stronger mana income so presumably yes, though you won't have to initially commit as much gold to get out your first one versus dead + poison so you can probably go for eclipsors about the same time as you would deads. No matter what you want to be bringing them out once the opponent is massing archers.

    If his archers retreat then you've got a dead+jugg versus spearton battle which will be in your favour

    Retreat that dead, and move one of your deads forward to attack exposed archers.

    Queue Jugger Knights and bombs at the same time, or you'll waste a few seconds by not keeping the melee units permanently queued up and having moments when you're not buying either.

    If the archers retreat and i move the attacked dead then do I carry on chasing the archer or bring back my jugger knights to attack the spears. Do if defiantly need charge to chase the archers?

    When i move a dead to attack the explodes archer do i move one archer or all of them?

    do i need to kill them? or will poison be enough?

    I reccomend getting 3 miners on mana when you start getting wings (eclipsors). Deads will actually cost more mana in the long run so you might even need 5-6. If you didn't know, poison guts actually costs mana for deads. Each time you poison a unit you will lose mana, but not if you hit a unit that's already poisoned.

    I think the best way to survive with deads is take the game slow and steady. With deads, there is usually no turning back. I recommend starting slow and more defensive, then slowly making your way to tower and then your opponent's base. Support your deads and don't worry about turtles. Try to get a medusa too, they work great with deads. Get the poison puddle upgrade ASAP, this will give your deads a chance to retreat when you need to. Charge will also keep away spears.

    The advantages of using wings I would say is that they have a better harassment capability. Another thing is that they are faster then archers or fires, constantly fly over the tanks to get at the archers, make use of your speed. Focus up your eco earlier, that way you can get your first wing fast.

    I don't know what you mean with your fifth question.
