For some reason, whenever I play against what I consider an abusive build/playstyle, it always just happens to be HE.... ugghhh
I played with my main which is GS with kind of a random build:
Gobbo Shaman as lord
big boss on foot
3 Savage orcs
1 Savage Orc Big uns
eight peak loonies
2 night gobbo archers
2 doom divers
1 spider riders
1 nasty skulker
My opponent brought
3 phoenix guard one of which was ROR (which he camped in corner)
4 ellyrian reavers, placed 1 in each corner of the map.
He camped in the corners with all his land units and kept circling my army with allariel and dragons, using breaths, and that spell that delays waaggh and does damage on my lord
Through a combo of vindictive glare + archers + doom divers, Allariel took a lot of damage, as well as his dragons. However, he Star of Averlorned everything back to almost full health.
In the process, I lost both doom divers and my lord was almost dead.
Then he just sat there with his dragons and phoenix guard in the corner.
I was super frustrated at this point. I could have taken a draw I suppose. But I really wanted to punish him.
So I moved towards the corner and eventually lost in a close fight.
I have a feeling that had I been close to victory, he would have just draw kitted me anyways as I had no way to catch the reavers + flying units.
Do you guys think his build / playstyle was abusive or just some good hit and run tactics and I shouldn't be salty?
I am thinking that I could have protected my doom divers betters, but if I bunched my units on the doom divers, the breath attacks would have been devastating.
