do you not take some aspiring champs with your chosen horde? they are cheap and magic damage is p nice (unless you are fighting dorf i spose, although angrund heroes they would demolish)

i am so bad for at this game. forgot key units entirely 3 games in a row multiplayer.
using VC i forgot THREE units of crypt horrors becuase i got tunnel vision on micro for my lord/cav
using WE i forgot my spellsinger with healing spell... the linchpin of the army
using dwarves i forgot the abilities on two runelords.
fucking derplord. reminds me of early EvE pvp experiences, where nothing was habit yet and i'd forget basic shit (e.g drones, activating hardeners, using dscan) ALL the time.

Are any of the Orc Horde factions playable in any of the DLC?
Me and the GF lost our VC/Chaos coop campaign.
Apparently me being on legendary difficulty and her being on easy result in us both just getting facerolled.
But would maybe like to try a different faction, I still want a horde one tho. Maybe just a restart will do. On Normal or something.
Also can't seem to get mods working even if we get the same mods? Anyone else experienced this with coop multiplayer? is there a fix?

Yeah, you can play Crooked Moon with the "King and Warlord" DLC, and the Bloody hand was i think free with Wurrzag? And of course normal Greenskins.
Not tried mods with MP yet....i'm starting a new game with my brother this week, i'll try it out.
January 10 2017, 11:35:00 AM
OH damn. I missed free shit.
I'm getting old/slow.
January 10 2017, 11:42:00 AM
Wurrzag is great too, get on that shit dude!
January 10 2017, 12:00:17 PM
Grreat proffitt! *chuckle*

But the vampire fucking aura shit that decimates my troops, how to prevent? or does raiding stance prevent attrition for those horde orc duders?
January 10 2017, 12:08:54 PM
Yeah, just go into Raiding Camp and you're fine. Slows you down to 50% move basically, but gives you cash too, so...yeah. Not too bad.

@Sp4m - When dealing with influence related attrition just go into raidin' camp OR you can use the underways. Also, Wurrzag isn't a Horde. He just starts with and specializes with savage orcs. The only Horde factions in the game (without mods) are Beastmen and Chaos.
@BOOLER - I use Aspiring champs in a lot of my balanced builds. But Archaeon the Everchosen is only allowed to use Chosen units. Plus their leadership is already so high you don't really need any buffs.
@Shiodome - Put your army into groups that make sense to you. Then you can use the 1-9 keys to cycles through them really fast. Also if you Lock the group (little lock icon) they will attempt to hold their formation when moving. This is super useful for better control of the battle. Double clicking a 1-9 group key will move the camera to that group.
EDIT: Also I did some basic testing of Flock of Doom VS Devolve. Devolve just doesn't seem to do any damage. Maybe I'm missing something.

yeah, i know the group mechanics inside out and use it for sneaky reformation plays i've not even seen any of the better streamers use. i'm just being dumb and not noticing things.
i normally have a front line group, support group (missiles or specialist melee like slayers), a group for each flanking force, a fliers group if i have them, then my lord or super important linchpin unit (like mortis engine, healing branchwraith, steamtank etc) in it's own group. none of that makes a difference i've i'm tunnel visioned on cooldown timers and pathing my flying lord into and out of melees and never look at my groups
also the best way to avoid attrition is sieges. once sieging you stop taking corruption attrition, and even if you don't want to siege a settlement you can use it to hop from settlement to settlement. especially in vampire home territories where they're close together. that's if you want to move further ofc. raiding/encamp is better if not in a rush and want to replenish.

with shit tier early game stacks i often cba replenishing and just grind my stacks into the ground then recruit fresh higher tier units as they become available. never quite decided if that was efficient or lazy.

Recruiting replacing dudes reduces fightiness, cant have that. Waaagh army will bring all the support you need, besides, only support you need is a few rock throwers for sieges, rest is a question of throwing more savage boyz at it, and hitting that Waaagh + 'ere we go!

Morgave the Shadowomen is fucking cheesy as shit.
5k HP? Check
Spawns a 1,000 cost unit 3-5 times? Check
I refuse to play against Beastmen as Chaos because they don't have enough anti-Large. Fuck you fgts I'll just spam Demis or Bloodknights.

I wouldnt feel too bad....both are in the top few % of players online and in tournaments (well, Ninja definitely is, i'm fairly sure i've seen the other guy too quite a few times), so i'd be very surprised if anybody here didnt get dicked by them more often than not matey.

I've lost to Ninjahund a few times, but never an ass beating.
The only ass beatings I keep taking are against Morghur and the Red Duke. It's all about them spamming in new units constantly. I just had a match against Mousillion. Death ball of mixed troops with a Mortis Engine and the Red Duke. Their army had 1400 to start with. My army ended up with 1900 kills....
