I've been thinking about the use of Spam troops and Support troops, and I'm leaning to a slight rework here... The way I see it all factions should have Spam troops and Support troops in some manner. The support troops, like; Dunlendings, Corsair, Dale, and so on, should not be spammed really since that will sorta take away the feeling of the faction...
Mordor should be mostly about Orcs,
Isengard about Uruks,
Moria about Goblins,
Dwarven about Dwarves,
Elven about Elves,
MotW about Men...
Pretty straight forward right... But some factions do have the ability to spam troops that should not really be spammed, and my biggest problem is the Dunlendings. The way I see the movies, they were GREATLY outnumbered by the 10 000 uruks that Saruman unleached, and the WildMen of Dunland was not more than a few hundered? Anyway, this is what I would like to do for Isengard...
ISENGARD FACTION unit setup for SEE Beta V
SPAM/DEFENCE: Lvl1 Isengard Orcs. Cheap, fast to recruit, but weak. (Use the normal/regular EA orcs, but with better skins - or the Snaga orcs that work the Lumber Mills, but with LUA weapons) Limited to 2 hordes!
SUPPORT: WildMen of Dunland. Specialized in stealing resources and have very high attack v/s structures. Limited to 4 hordes!
BASIC/REGULAR: Lvl2 Uruk-hai soldiers. Crossbows, Pikemen & Swordsmen. Very high armor, strong but not that fast moving.
ELITE: Lvl3 Uruk-hai Scout-raiders. Low armor, but very strong and very fast on foot! Limited to 2-4 hordes!
SUPER ELITE: Lvl3 Uruk-hai Berserkers Limited to 10 units + Uruk-hai of Orthanc Limited to 2 hordes!
This way we wouldn't have to see endless hordes of Dunlendings rushing in stealing tons of resources in our bases but instead we get to fight lesser Orcs (think those guys walking into Sarumans "office" right before they start building their "uruk factories"), plus I think it would look cool in case you go Mordor vs Isengard, to have different orc tribes fight eachother And the only thing we would have to do is basically to re-add the normal Orcs, but into Isengard =)
