Since I'm relatively new to playing WE. I would like some suggestions on dealing with mass artillery like hellstorm cannon, mortars, etc. Thank you in advance.

    If somone noobboxes like that dont play theyre game,hide your troops in the forrest or away from the range of the artilery while harrasing the enemy whith aoe spells from a caster or using mobile skirmishers like lotus moon suggested,dont ecourge this type of play

    If it's from a faction like empire, you can also just rush them if you have a super aggressive build. Empire state troops are a bit flimsy and as long as you shut down enemy cav with your own shooting/monsters you should be set. Vs factions like dwarves or high elves youre gonna have to play more cautiously like Lotus suggested, though aggressive work is still possible(at least vs dwarves, especially if you land a nice amber spear or something)

    In my experience, artillery boxes are easy to deal with as WE.


    The problem as WE is good players with good area management that combine artillery and wide, intelligent formations that make approaching the artillery impossible.

    Depends. Empire artillery doesn't win battles of its own, not one unit of the Empire does. They depend on maneuvering through combined arms. The Empire does not want direct confrontation. Because of that, it has many tactical options.

    Think of it like a chess game with different pieces each match.

    Artillery pressurizes the line, Rook.
    Skirmishers thin the line, Pawn.
    Infantry holds the line, Pawn.
    Cavalry breaks the line, Knight
    Ranged Cavalry disrupts the line, Knight.
    Lords support the line, King.
    Heroes support the supporters, Bishop.
    Wizards are flexible. Queen.


    The more balanced an army, the more skill it requires to control, the more options it has to solve or create problems.
