pwnage no more....need help with WC3
my micro...its gone

haven't played any RTS in a month or so; pull out WC3 which i totally used to own. and i got owned....not once, or twice..


first it was with my friends who are all really good but i almost always beat them before, i used to be the best in my group, now i am an embarrassment.

idk what im doing wrong, im just not fast anymore. i got all the strats down, and some really nice ones, and i know tactics for every race and counter tactics but i just dont produce fast enough...idk



how do i get faster? any good macro sets for WC3 you guys have? or should i just keep practicing

i ALMOST lost to a AI medium...finally held him off with my blademaster but i cannot believe how bad I am now.

i used to own people with Orc and play aggressive at the beginning cripple them, then build a extension near their base and fortify it with towers and eventually prevent them from expanding it was perfect...

should i try a new race? not NE, they = ftl unless someone can hook me up with some strats, i mean how can you get past tier 2 with NE thats a killer

human? seems perfect for my playing style, can play the defensively aggressive positional that i am accustomed to with orcs, using paladin+priests with armor upgrades

undead? seems too weak and massive of an army. but they are the easiest race to play. maybe i should play them til i get better...

Play Starcraft. Faster, better, more fun.

It sounds like you used to play your friends when they sucked. Now they've gotten a bit better, and you've gotten a bit worse. You need to catch up.
Pick a strategy, perfect it, move on to new strategy. Playing in groups can help too. If your allies are doing better than you in-game you will be forced to go as fast as you can and keep up with them.

Hm, for orc, okay.

Expand vs Undead, get fs + tc with stomp (rapes fiends) -- also watch out for destroyers raiding your burrows.. get the tier3 armor upgrade if possible.. but expoing is def more important

Vs elf usually blademaster TC.. if he goes hunts get SH in place of TC for wards.. a demo or two help. Attack at tier2

Mirror match is usually mass kodo so.. lol

And vs HU chain/wave works nicely.. lots of harassment, especially at expo.. Abuse wolves ^^


As for units, orc is like 80% grunt raider walkers and a couple kodos.. adjust your strat from there..

Oh, and while you're harassing don't forget to use your idle grunts to creep the greens.

Speedscrolls are great for getting in position for later-game battles, where you have quite a few units. Orc units = slow fatties.
