OK so I have played mostly as Vampire Counts, Chaos, and dwarfs. so every time I play as one of those factions I am on around turn 30-50 and I get the notification that the main Dwarven faction has been destroyed. And if I am playing as Vampire Counts, or Empire I end up being Double teamed by The Orcs and Chaos. Chaos is a big problem but now I have to face Greenskin also. When this happens I get attacked by at least 6-8 army's with at least 1-2 green skin waaagh attached to each. So I end up having to defend defend at minnum against 12 Greenskin and Greenskin Waaagh army's then including Chaos I end up getting **** up with either getting entirely destroyed or defeating Chaos with only a few Provence left just to have another all out war with the Greenskins who did not get touched by Chaos due to them not getting past me.

Another thing I have a problem with is the auto resolve with the green skins, I can have a 4v4 match with the green skins. And each army of my army s could have the best units and the Greenskin only has goblin archers and really cheap cavalry but it still says that I am going to lose 10 to 1. Also the auto resolve for the other factions works fine it's nice and even I am only having that problem with the Orks.

    Another issue I forgot to add is the Greenskins Confederation habit. This one is mainly tword people who also play Dwarfs. When I play as Dwarfs I always try to destroy the Greenskins as soon as possible, and so I spend the first 10-20 turns trying to wipe about the Greenskins. But 90% of the time when the Greenskins have one settlement left and are currently the weakest faction bam they Confederate with bigger ork faction. so I end up having to spend half the game trying to take out the Greenskins but everytime they are almost destroyed bam another Confederation.

    The confederations happen when you're conquering the empire, too. It is irksome, lol.

    The waaagh! armies are at least low-tier stuff. Mostly goblins and orc boyz, sometimes a couple savage units. If you're really lucky you'll get some boar boyz. I use Waaagh!s as fodder or to raze poorly defended settlements that I can't colonize and aren't worth enough to entice me to sack with a real army.

    When fighting orcs, be sure to have enough firepower - they break easy (they don't seem to have a "mob up" rule) when being shot at.

    Dwarves owned the greenskins in most of my legendary campaigns. If you play greenskins yourself waagh is essential for dealing with much higher quality dwaren armies early on.

    Try to kill their parent army in an underway intercept or a settlement battle. Dissolves the whole army and the Waaagh! Orkz return to Valhalla to feast and slumber.

    Still I agree that Orkz are the greatest AI threat around you leave them alive long enough. But defending against 5hem is not a problem. Only the Dwarves actually need to attack them and will do so long before the Orkz grow powerful.
