Hey man u did awesome! Thats a very effective little rush, although my only comments are next time get food gatherers too...because if ye stuff up...something bad could happen. You always need to collect food.
One thing...I don't like your eso name :)

Hey, cool. I uploaded something similar but went freya. I never thought of troll being good so early on, but it did 2 oxcarts and maybe even some vills. I think there is potentiality in this kind of early rushes, and for thor its kind of easy with dwarf boni.
The weakness of course is if you cant kill something early on or deny resources.
A hugh difficulty would be if opponent has a nearby 6000 gold pile and can strategically wall off so you have to go through tc fire etc. I think the strat is map dependant actually.
Also vs atties for example, they can usually pump several prometheans right away. How to beat them with one troll and ta?
But fun game! If you play more of this strat, it would be nice if you uploaded some.

The point of doing this with Thor-Forseti is that once you click classical, you only need to AQ dwarves. You can alternate the rally point between a mine and your wood. Youll never get any food whatsoever but thats the point-
All youll make costs wood and gold..
TAs, trolls, towers, barracks, dwarves.. all is wood and gold (and favor). Trolls handle myth with their range and bonus, and TAs deal with the rest. Its not that good a strat, esp not vs atties, I know.. but it could work quite often.
Of course, this is a do-or-die strat, but it does work. Esp on low-hunt maps, since you need less food as Thor to go classical. And you can keep going for quite some time.. if the TAs cant make him/her bleed, you can spam towers, reorganise your econ and still come out on top.
