When animals attack, who are you going to call? Excellent game. Nice strategy and tactical control on Lord_Igor's part.
Both players had perfect economy in the beginning, but the Set player had no game around his town center and had to pick berries instead. This however did not put his economy behind due to the Pharaoh empowerment. I must point out that this and the fact that the Hades player was able to collect a relic improving tower attack early on perhaps helped Hades fending off the initial Set attack in addition to the strategy and building placement pattern employed. Skipping the classic age arms race and jumping to heroic age was a huge gamble, but the Set player was not able to take this advantage fully and missed the window of opportunity to win. In retrospect Set probably would've had better chance if he had waited for the siegeworks and conserved his units to disrupting Hades resource gathering only, however at the time he was still in classic age without enough resources to advance to Heroic so siegeworks was nowhere in sight, thus he gambled and rushed the fortified Hades position, resulting in heavy losses with no appreciable gain. By the way, most Set animals are prone to pierce damage, a fact works to Hades' advantage here. The Set player had a 2nd chance of winning a bit later during the battle for Hades' main base, but I fear he did not have enough time to control the siege towers properly after he fell the two Greek watch towers. I also think he went for the wrong targets with his slingers at times, attacking buildings instead of enemy archers. After that main battle, he should've amassed his units, but instead he went overly aggressive and kept sending insufficient number of units to attack. Overall, both sides played very well, an excellent game.

(Insert Rating analysis here)Good job on the Hades players part. This game isnt that bad to watch.
Additional Comments: But I wouldnt say the this game is prof that hades is stronger than set. The set player made alot of mistakes poor use of units and animales. When atacking Tcs or archers use axemen not spearmen. Same with animales there like milatary units with stregnths and weakness.
