if you click here: http://www.battle.net/war3/basics/rookiemistakes.shtml you will see a page where blizzard lists war3 rookie mistakes. One of the suposed mitakes is the follow:
"Building Massive Tower Defenses
Siege Weapons and other abilities can easily kill tower defenses. You only need enough Towers for a defense -- don't build too many. "
We who play this game all know that siege cant easily kill tower defences and human players build 200000000000000000000000 towers and WIN THE GAME BECAUSE OF THIS when they do it. So, build 200000000000000000000000 towers in this game is not a rookie mistake. It is a PRO game tatic that works very very well.
This is the main trat used by Sky. Who is a top player who dont move a inchie without being backedup by 200000000000000000000000 towers.
Please blizzard, correct the game or correct the strategy guide.
If it was that easy to kill towers with glave throwers you would not see TOP HUMAN PLAYERS massing towers like crazy the entire game as they do all the time. You should go to www.wcreplays.com or www.replayers.com or www.replays.net and download some SKY replays for you to see how he build more towers than units the entire game and win that way.
According to warcraft III strategy guide, mass towers is a noob strategy and in practice what is happening is that this suposed noob strat is being used all the time by TOP PLAYERS and working very well. Or this game or the strategy guide is wrong and one of them must be fixed.
This is the text that should be on war3 strategy guide:
Mass towers. The more towers you build, it will be more likely you for you win. Mass towers on your base for defence (10, 12 towers should do it). Mass towers when attacking (10, 12 more towers at enemy base). Build towers everywhere on the map. Build mortar teams to destroy enemy siege units at distance while they are trying to kill your towers. research Masonry upgrade so your towers will take forever to kill. A tower costs only 100 gold and 70 lumber (less gold than a footman and costs no FOOD) so there is no excuse for you to not mass them.
MK is impotent in large scale games. Hes only useful in tiny 1v1 with low amounts of towers, ie, normal games. In an actual tower-mass, he can't do ##@% for the entire game. Meanwhile flame strike is the #1 counter to siege units, and 12 griffs + penix focusing a hero prevents them from aoeing your towers. An MK on the other hand, does what? Stuns their lich for a few seconds while the DK just coils him back? Banish kills lich in a single volley
oh and flame strike is the only way you can stop mass tanks + cloud support. Actually, flame strike just plain counters tanks pretty hardcore.
Wow here I was giving you the benefit of doubt. Instead what do I find? You link me to a 4v4 replay of mass noobs/ that not only is from an outdated patch but a map of friends. Your theory doesn't hold at all. I wonder what happens when a lvl 10 bloodmage gets whacked by a lvl 3 bolt and focused by mass air, don't know but something inside me tells me that he will not cast flamestrike.
