since this forum now features a clanwars area I thought I'd create a little diary in which I post my clanwars games. Due to this being a diary I'm going to post virtually every game, whether I won or lost. Only criteria is that it is entertaining or helpful for newer players in some way (e.g. showing a strategy). I almost exclusively play 2v2, mostly with Orange (known here as Finnick Odair), so if you're looking for 1v1 games you're probably not going to find a lot of them.
Anyway, I realize there's probably little interest for this but maybe a couple people will find this helpful.
All games were played on 1.04 if the description doesn't say otherwise.

Isen (me), Mordor (Orange) vs. Rohan (Ganjaman), Mordor (J2C2KL)
Good game vs bd. I had a solid start and put good pressure on Mordor, while also managing to get a rank 3 Uruk battalion with the help of eye and war chant. Tried to combo rush the Mordor early but an early land by Rohan stopped my attack. Rohan (Ganjaman) generally played really well in this game and put good pressure on us, but rain paired with Mordor LD just destroys Mordor Rohan in this match up unless Mordor has mass catapults. J2 losing Nazgul carelessly multiple times didn't help either.

Rohan (me), Isen (Orange) vs. Rohan (J2C2KL), Isen (Ganjaman)
Good start from us. Seeing his horses were out soon and remembering his clanmate |bd|Dracula doing the same thing to me with Orcs, I decided to put my rank 2 peasents to good use by gaterushing J2 (|bd|Manwe) and killing a farm of his. They were never able to recover after their bad start and the game ended quickly with a combo rush.
Roh_Gon_vs_2Isen_vs_dTm.rep 132.29KB 93 downloads
Rohan (me), Gondor (Orange) vs. 2 Isen (Xehanort & Ryan)
After a decent early game, Orange opted for combos as Gondor while I went 2 horses Theoden ups instead of the usual Rohirrim Archers + Gondor horses due to the host being ultra laggy. When he had 5 or so combos w/ fara LD, they had 2 Sarumans but no upgrades. After managing to kill their Sarumans the game ended quickly before they could even get close to rain.
2_Mor_vs_Mor_Gon_vs_dTm.rep 227.16KB 111 downloads
2 Mordor (Orange & me) vs. Mordor (Xehanort), Gondor (Ryan)
Pretty gay match-up from our perspective. We played alright but due to Orange losing citadel to Xeha's (dTm`Roar) 2 Nazguls he couldn't get WK out in time for our attack on mid, resulting in our army getting owned. We lost shortly after.
Gon_Mor_vs_Roh_Mor_vs_dTm.rep 166.18KB 118 downloads
Mordor (me), Gondor (Orange) vs. Rohan (Stiwie), Mordor (Xehanort)
Orange tried a new start by defending with starting soldiers, which didn't work out well cause Xeha wasn't silly enough to fight soldiers + eye with his peasents. Due to that we had a terrible early game and even though Xeha dc'ed in the middle of the game, Stiwie had loads of money and managed to fend off our army with mass trolls. We lost shortly after.

2 Rohan (Orange and me) vs. Rohan (Stiwie), Isen (Xehanort)
Very hard match-up, but we managed to get a decent start. After seeing Stiwie (dTm`Nymeria) opting for Eomer -> RA, I decided to not get upgrades for my RA but get Ents instead. We managed to kill all of Rohan's base except for 3 farms, but in the end they fend off our attack. We continued to pressure both their bases, but eventually their army was just too strong with rain and I just couldn't get those last 1 1/2 points to AoD. Neverless, this replay shows how a nice alternative strat by the 2 rohan.
Roh_Mor_vs_Isen_Mor_vs_dTm.rep 324.77KB 105 downloads
Mordor (me), Orange (Rohan) vs. Isen (Stiwie), Mordor (Xehanort)
Another Rohan Mordor vs. Isen Mordor game. Again we started well and continued to pressure them throughout the mid game, never allowing them to leave their bases. While we wrecked havoc with mass horses supported by WK, I took mid and built up an army of trolls, catapults and combos simultanously. They defended vs. our first attack by the use of rain but I was that rich that we just attacked with another army after rain ended. Shows how to pressure Isen/Mor well as Roh/Mor and that mass catapults are op as fuck.
Isen_Mor_vs_Gon_Roh_vs_dTm.rep 167.73KB 112 downloads
Mordor (me), Isen (Orange) vs. Gondor (Ryan), Rohan (Xeha)
Pretty straightforward game. I got Mordor (as always) and managed to hold my farms early game because of Ryan putting land before I had even chosen a spell, so I just covered his land and killed his soldiers quickly. Xeha tried a huge peasent spam but Orange's offensive pit start allowed him to defend rather well. We had a decent army of combos, Lurtz, trolls & drummers reasonably early in the game so we just finished up Xeha before he even had fire for his RA.
Mor_Roh_vs_Isen_Roh_vs_dTm.rep 346.73KB 119 downloads
Mordor (again me :o), Rohan (Orange) vs. Isen (Xeha), Rohan (Ryan)
A hard MU for us, but early game went pretty good so I had loads of money as Mordor, enabling me to get fast trolls and drummer and eventually WK to fend off their first attack. Orange tried baserushing Isen w/ 5 horses and shields, which didn't work out very well (he lost 3 horses xD). They took the safe route by taking mid and waiting it out for rain, which was a good choice considering I had like 6+ trolls with drummer and WK. Due to Orange's choice of going 5 horse -> shields -> ups instead of 3 horse -> ups -> combos, our combos were significantly late, which meant we couldn't attack mid properly before it was too late. Rain and mass combos won them the game.
