After having installed SEE, I immediately tried the Elves. They were my favorite faction in the vanilla game, and also looked awesome. But as it turns out, I was unable to defeat the opponent on Easy. Easy, dammit! My ents would be killed by fire before they reached the enemy base, my units that came with ships couldn't do sh*t because they were outnumbered two to one, and my eagle would be killed by arrows before it so much as destroyed a tower.
I never lost though. Walls are a pretty awesome feature, you know. I just exited because I didn't want to spend three hours to that one skirmish. So I tried Mordor. Long story short, I beat my enemy. The Balrog, Wyrm, the Witch-King on a Fellbeast, Attack Trolls, elite Orc units and kick-ass Grond annihilated those sturdy Dwarves. But even then my troops were pretty hammered in the end.
Next up, Men of the West. Even worse than with the Elves. I didn't even get a chance to attack. I had to keep defending my fortress as there was no time where I could make a counter-attack. Once having taken down an invasion, more would come a minute later. Those pesky Dwarves took down my walls with their siege hammers.
And finally, the Dwarves. Elves, Mordor, Men of the West. I was always against the Dwarves. I figured out I could do some damage with their siege engines like I was able to do with Grond and the Balrog. Well, no. The enemy (which was Men of the West this time) destroyed my catapults before they did much. Seriously, my walls and my Eagle which destroyed the enemy trebuchets prevented the Men from ever entering my base, but neither was I able to take down theirs. I did do some serious damage on both my two invasions, but they would recover. My invasions. I don't remember my first one, except for the part where Galadriel's storm throws about two hundred men and fifty horses in to the air at the same damn time. But my second one, holy crap. When I launched my invasion, I thought those weakling Men were done for. Galadriel, Bilbo, Gimli, Brand, five catapults, three units of Men of Dale archers, three units of Men of Dale swordsmen, two Khazad Guardians -units, four units of Dwarven Veterans and a Giant Eagle. Plus, the Lone Tower, Earthquake, Bombard, Men of Dale Allies, Hobbit Allies, Rallying Call and Heal powers. Man. But the AI withstood it. WTF. I can understand if this was Medium or Hard, but Easy...
Long story up there, but now I can finally ask my question: How do I destroy the enemy base? Some tips and tricks would be appreciated.
