Today, I fought agains same player 4 times.

First, Aztec vs Aztec. I lose. Long battle, good game.

Second, Aztec vs Aztec again. I win this time. We were arms racing necromancers - who dare gather more skeletons than the other one? :)

Third, the opponent changed one's faction, the Viking. Standard berserker+axes. He zapped the workers. After the fierce battle, I lose.

Fourth, the guy spammed the all-mighty axe throwers. Every unit i trained were zapped. I lose in 2min :oops: .



I really need help about this spamming. It is really frustrating when defeated by simple, silly tactics.

Have you tried making his axe throwers group and then killing all of them at once using just one poison bomb? Also, Necromancer+Jaguar Warrior might work against this, because Jaguar Warriors are quite okay against Axe Throwers, and when they die they give you a skeleton.

Of course i did.

Poison bomb works well. But, I dunno why, even with such massacre with simple spell, i overwhelmed again. Poison bomb just slow down the wave of axes. Hmm, economic problem?

Jaguar warrior's problem is this - just one lightning, he's dead. Even though he should be a basic tanker. Necromancers also. Axe spamming require not much mana - So the Vikings stack up their mana and simply spam the lightning to kill necromancers. Necromancers are slow and expensive unit. Each loss is critical.

My point is - Countering Axes? Thats easy. Jaguar+Necro do well. But countering the Lightning spell? I dunno what to do.
