Blah! A lot of timidity. There wasn't an adjustment by Thor earlier in the game reacting to Egypt's spears. Egypt seemed to adjust well.
Ulfsarks were okay, but I would have liked to see more throwing axeslots more. Also, don't forget your market and trade routes!
I didn't see the whole thing by the way.

Additional Comments:lol got here first eh? Right about the 3 I was think that watching the game. I did watch the whole thing. Yeh not much action at the begining I played against someone on set today. He had a better classical rush than that. Good examples of how to defend playing norse. This is also a good example of why you dont want to spend alot of time in heroic vs egypt or greek as a norse player. Notice how Wolf comes alive as soon as he hits mythic. Thats when the game got good. One more thing the Set player may have won it if...he hit his meteor shower in the right place. You have to hit the TC with all the farms. But it was still cool to see all those ulsfarks flying in the air.

A well played game of Thor vs Set, but a little boring after reviewing Trippin and RuleZ's games. I must be spoiled by those games CokaCola posted. In this game Egyptian was not able to keep up with the conflict and was simply crushed after mythic. A testimony of Norse economy and the power of the winter wolves perhaps.
Set launched an aggressive attack in the early game, although it was not sufficient to harm the Norse economy, it did keep the Norse raiders at home, the one reason why Egypt lasted as long as it did. I think the Egyptian had only one real chance of winning this game, and it happened in the middle classic age. At one point Egyptian troops had a real chance of taking over the Norse healing spring, but instead they went attacking the unit producing structures instead, which IMO was usually a good idea but in this specific case a mistake that cost Egypt the only real chance of winning. As for the previous comment about casting that meteor shower at the norse TC with all the farms, I don't think the Egyptian had a chance of doing that, because by that time, the map was pretty much well guarded and dominated by norse structures and units already, and Egypt had no real chance of infiltrating the Norse base unless they wanted to lose their entire army. Overall a good game that demonstrated some Norse superiority.
