Today I am going to tell you about the PvP tactics of the human army. The first thing I want you to remember – there is no universal formation. Each of them has its own advantages and disanvantages. The second thing I want you to learn – there is no the best unit. In this game every unit has a counter unit. Gentlemen, how do you think, what unit is the main feature of the human army? "Lancers!!!",– you may say. Nope. The main feature are spearman. Why is this so? Only spearman have an ability that counters big units, usually considered as "best".
And now let's get to the point. The idea of human formation is to endure anything enemy may do in order to brake our lines. So, talking about counteracting dwarves and liches armies. Our formation consists of four lines: First – spearmen, second – lancers, third – archers and priests, fourth – heroes. (https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B7hI2 ... 0dBOEpSWDQ) When fighting humans it will look like: first – spearmen, second – archers and priests, third – archers and heroes. (https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B7hI2 ... WVMdVV5Yk0) By the way, do not deploy the heroes closely to each other, or they might be aimed by enemy heroes' abilities.
When you hire golden troops, spearmen must be hired first. You may say: "Eh, Marivs is wrong. I'd better hire golden lancers/archers." The problem lies in the troop reinforcement. You can reinforce lancers with Elena, you can reinforce archers with Avalon, you can reinforce spearmen with... Oops. The next heroes are vital for this tactics: Avalon, Vega and Helena. If you don't have Helena, use Virion instead. Also I may advise using some melee hero in the lancers line, like Rufio or Bane. Selection of other heroes is up to you.
Let's talk about heroes' skills.
Avalon: arrow volley – useful skill, but not vital; summon archers, archers mastery – vital skills, natural aura – having first stage is mandatory.
Vega: heal, mana barrier, favour of the sun god – vital skills, boosted healing – less important, but useful.
Helena: strategic retreat – you may upgrade not more than three levels, but it is not mandatory. Call of the cavalry, cavalry specialist, magic resistance – vital skills. By the way, magic resistance is extremely useful when fighting the liches armies.
Virion: summon swordsmen, swordsmen mastery – vital skills. You may put one point in all other skills.
Now, how to lead your army to the victory? Fighting against dwarves or liches, spearmen will throw spears and stun the enemies, lancers will outrun spearmen and hit the enemy stunning him again. Lancers will clash the enemy. And here comes the fear factor. Enemy heroes will use their attacking skills on the lancers. Let lancers act as a cannon fodder. After enemy will spent the attacking skills, you may use strategic retreat on lancers, if you have Helena. Do NOT use Vega's healing abilities on lancers.
Our principal concern is to save the spearmen' line and our main heroes. So reserve the healing abilities for them. However, you may try to predict enemy's action and use mana barrier before he will hit your lancers. Be especially attentive when you fight against humans because spearmen will confront all might of the enemy's first strike. After the spearmen line will clash with the enemy, you can spawn lancers/swordsman behind the enemy troops crying: "Surprise mother****er!!!" Also, do not forget about the possibility to strengthen your firepower by spawning archers.
I hope you enjoy reading my guide. I would greatly appreciate your comments.
