    Is anyone playing single player? I've got all the way to Orcs (oooh, impressive :rolleyes: ) but I really don't like the level I'm on. It's the one with the lumber collecting requirement.

    • The stupid base isn't by a gold mine!!!!!! argh!
    • Grom is not anti-air
    • the blue night elves sneak around close to the trees and get to my base while the green is attacking me
    • both enemies send mostly air units

    Build some raiders to bring down the air units with ensnare and a few towers (2-3) at each entrance near the gold mine. Use a grunts combined with a decent amount of headhunters if you can build them. Don't cut all the way through the trees near your main. Basically just keep near your mine until you get a decent number of troops and send Grom to explore now and then. Start attacking their bases to the left when you feel that you are ready but don't be afraid to run if it gets too hairy. If you leave a few grunts and a raider or so back at base and sit them next to your towers, you should be able to hold the enemy off until your men can get back. Don't rely too much on raiders for unit attacking since they do pitiful damage to archers. This is how I did the mission.

    Perhaps some of the FAQ files at http://www.gamefaqs.com can offer some extra help.

    I just went and killed their ToL with Grom and some cats when the NE werent looking, have Grom protect the cats and if u kill a tree u get 3000 lumber, it's pretty straightforaward- kill a tree, demolish a base= 1 less attacker and 3000 more wood

    I played more agressively like Halleck. Bought the Goliath-style things from the Goblin inventor, built up an army of mostly grunts and raiders as Tenric suggested, and then went after their bases.

    doh! I almost killed one of the trees, but I was getting attacked and I didn't know they were so important.

    You have to break through the trees to get to a mine :(

    I think I am just used to the games where there is no shortage of money.

    Headhunters uber smack the bears, they take extra damage from peircing in bear form...


    Also, remember that every base you kill is an extra gold mine for yourself, so it makes sense to expand precociosly..

    You know what's really funny, nobody uses the Goblin Shredders in Multi, they work great they should be used more...

    I buy one whenever I can. You only need the shredder (4 food) for lumber and can devote all that extra food towards troops.

    I mostly get them when I'm UD, so I can use more Ghouls or whatever.
