Going for a fast heroic with set guarded by animals, then pumping out 3 seige towers filled with villagers. Vision/shifting sands them in near the opponents tc. Use ancestors to fight off enemy vills/army. The tc will be down in roughly thirty seconds at which point you take out your villagers and have them build the tc in the same place. If you filled the towers with all vils plus your pharoah youll get a new tc in like 10-15 seconds. Once that happens its pretty much gg. Is this a lame strategy?

It is a good strategy if it works. The terms lame, OP, and UP are GROSSLY overused terms.

Yes that is a pretty lame strategy, but very effective. It wouldn't be nearly as effective vs isis though, cause she would just use ancestors back and eclipse, to make super minions. (unless you can do all that before he ages up.)

Towers die to vils, tc can be repaired, your in the middle of arrow fire, and vils are a dangerous thing to lose if you FH and have low econ, and as they don't have rhino skin, they might not stand up very well.

I wouldn't term this creative strat OP or lame until it has excessive use and is nearly unstoppable.

Matei's strat. It's not lame, really..it'd only work against Atl and Norse.

This will not work against isis since she would have monuments blocking SS. I will not consider this lame as it seems more like a desperarate rush to just slow ur opponnent. As Ra this is much more viable. Do Fh and get that scarb along with a few seige tower. This might be better as scarab will not die to ville and will more powerfull in taking down the TC real fast as compared to using ancestors. Use the ville to fight as they are quite a millitary with Skin of rihno and they have no counters.

Still it will be foolish to try this against any greek especially Hades. Even if u do this it has a less chance of success in heroic as compared to classical as they would have better economy and military. If u use only seige tower u probably wont make it as ville have bonus against seiges. But i think in Vanilla Ville do not have bonus against Seige.

I did call it a lame strategy in Vanilla but not in TT

I did, because it's true. Atlantean will have a tougher time countering this because they have lesser villagers than other civs.

Yeah he does...atleast in Deathmatch. Besides, he might be good to fight off an enemy MU that might bring the TC down - Proms, Cyclops, etc.

Quote:

It won't work against Isis because of monument block, Ra and Set because they have the free tower upgrade (that kills your vils pretty quick) And if you're talking Ra, he probably has the Skin of Rhino upgrade (Hence, his vils > yours) If you mean Set, then his villagers *should* provide ample defense.

If will work against Zeus or Poseidon, if you catch him off guard. But if you're talking Hades, that's really doubtful. He's got Sentinel and unfortunately, toxotes.

There was a thread about this very thing a while back, lemme find that one. Edit: There are many threads about this topic, just search "Set"

No one will be farming by then so just cast ancestors around your seige towers and your fine. Try to get the ancestors to fight off the army but if they cant then use you vills and pharoah to kill them.
