They're getting on everyone's nerves big time. Me and SlowWolf are going to make a series of the game but we'll have to single the Chinese out because of how unfun it is to lose to two unit spam.

Didn't seem like much of a problem when I played SaS, it cost's quite a bit of mana for a low level unit, (50-70) and you can just use aoe spell's/units to counter this.

No I don't mean the ying-yang ability, I mean that spamming swordsmen and rocketeers wins against everyone.

It isn't just two-unit spam that's the problem. It's harder to overcome than it should be, yes, but it's not insurmountable, throwing down a few poison flasks or lightning bolts helps. I find that the real issue is that they can just spam swordsmen and rocketeers, not cast any spells, and hold off your forces for long enough to accumulate 250 mana and eliminate all your workers at once with a dragon. Even if you were previously winning, you're not recovering from that. At least boulders cost a good 100 mana more and have a good chance to hamper your own army in the process.
