    Re: Lord of the Rings Map

    I play "Lord of the Rings:Middle Earth"(12 Army) map just against AI, and try to see how quickly I can win against the different AI's

    I recently tried a new strategy that allows the Goblins to take Rivendell on round 3. It's not necessarily 'faster' because all the elves in the east are still there.. and probably not practical because a play could probably take Moria.. but fun nonetheless.

    If you want to try... do this..
    Round 1 -
    Saurmon...
    Combat move
    - 1 Raider, 1 orc Isengard to S. Dunland
    - 1 Raider, 1 orc to Westford
    - Remaining troops to Fangorn, till only 1 or 2 ents remain

    Purchase 4 stabbers-2 Shooters
    Combat move
    - 1 Stabber N. caves to Anduim W. Bank
    - Remaining N. Caves to Eregion (bat to Moria)
    - All Moria (except bat) to Eregion)
    - All Shooters-Stabbers from S. Caves to N. Dunland
    - 1 isengard warg to Endwaith
    - 1 Dol Goldur warg to Gladden
    Non-Combat Move
    - 1 Warg S. Caves to Eregion
    - 3 Wargs Isengard to Eregion
    - 3 Wargs Dol Goldur to Anuin West Bank
    Place units
    - place all in Moria

    Round 2 -
    Purchase units
    - Buy 2 Trolls, 1 Warg
    - No attacks...
    - Move all units to Eregion (except 1 shooter in Anduim West (leave there)... bats.. leave in Moria
    - Should have about 12 shooter, 17 Stabber, 13 warg, 2 Troll.. with 2 more troll 1 warg, 2 bats in Moria,

    Elves could probably take Moria here, but AI doesn't attack.

    Round 3 -
    I buy 1 shooter, 1 Troll, the rest stabbers..
    Send all but 1 shooter (leave in eregion) to Rivendell.. you'll take it easily

    You could potentially send a bit less and make some progress on Freefolk, or elves to the east.

    This approach makes Rhun's/Mordor's jobs much harder in the North East.. but it greatly shifts the PUs and power of the <Good> faction losing arguably their strongest member in round 3.

    And again.. I realize not a PvP strategy at all.. but fun. 🙂
