Lesson #5

When getting attacked by a much smaller player, you can "retaliate" and counter-attack him even if he's below your 30% range(with +2 mod). The minimal range for retaliations is 5%

Lesson #2, which was deleted because the mod was incompetent

Rangers are epic. Start using them more.

Lesson #2 is incorrect. Rangers are definitely not epic. A jack of all trades route pretty much bans any unit in that route from being epic It's not a terrible route, but it's not a great one. Does a number of things okay, but nothing really exceptionally well.

They are good at killing SAs, but I don't think they are the best unit in the game for doing so. I'd rather take a whack of Robos against SAs, rather than rangers

PA + TD = dead SA.

Edit: Apparently Vamps are ****. They used to be anti SA, guess that explains why you don't see vamps anymore lol

This may be trivial, but the same is true for sending to ID 1

Lesson #6

Always be aware of the special abilities that some units of the fantasy route have.

Iron Golems turn indestructible at random times (or at least I think they're random)
Apprentices and Sorcerers randomly become weaker/stronger at times
Vampires deal more damage at night, "especially when the weather looks stormy".
Werewolves and Witches get a boost at night, when the skies are clear and the moon shines

Hope I didn't get any of those wrong

Lesson #7

I've noticed that people tend to buy units in relation to preset ratios, which I find utterly idiotic. You can never achieve maximum efficiency with your ratios if you don't take into account the player base, and what you're more likely to fight against.
My lesson is: stop being a lazy ******* and hack around, take note of who is likely to attack you and who you're likely to want to attack and buy units that you will actually have use for.

I'm pretty sure Golems become untargettable not indestructable, if you are using them as LET flak this is not a good thing But maybe i am remembering the br's where it happened to me incorrectly.

If anyone knows for sure if golems turn indestructible, or just can't be targetted please share.

i think they become 'invincible' despite being targetted. i had those invincible golems a few times and i didn't really get 'more' damages to my sorcs than when golems flakked.

I agree, from memory invincible rather than untargetted.

Invincible. Not untargettable. That would be a hilarious bug though.

ahahaha, yeah XD for my golems being untargettable, i lose MORE sorcs that cost more. golems are there as LET flak and you have to gamble sometimes for losing more of other units. it doesn't sound like a 'bonus' but a 'malus'. :p
