Either he quoted the wrong comment and was planning to reply to me, or he thinks you’re being a **** for no reason (which you were). Nevertheless sorry for my clickbait title. Gotta get some practice for when I go and make 100000 subs and need to get that SWEET YOUTUBE AD REVENUE $$$$$ Kappa

Actually I think it's a good idea. After I thought about it. At least scorps are defenetely underestimated. Also in goths war they can make the difference.

Keep you work going, i always read your posts. Don't pay attention on trollers who not analysing the game.

Thanks!

About the Goths war thing, I really like the idea of massing Heavy Scorpions vs Goths, but maybe not in Arabia since movement speed is a very big factor in open maps. Maybe on Arena you can mass hscorps like that. Especially since Goths and some other cubs don’t have Siege Engineers or Siege Onager so they’re left with a regular boring Onager to try and counter hscorps.

Even though Scorpions have more accuracy, you can still micro not to get hit by them(the same way you do against Ragned units without Ballistics). It's harder to do it against Mangonel, because you only need 1 or 2 effective shots to make a big damage. Take in mind he "dancing" micro gets less results the bigger the ammount of Mangos(with attack ground, you can shot multiple places simultaneously).

True. So, are you saying, it would be better to have 3 Mangonels than 6 Scorpions (since multiple mangos are already very hard to micro around)?

the mix of scorp+mangonel (scorp with the dodgable traget fire, and mangos with the attackground) almost guarantees atleast some hits

Man I saw you lose like 10 times against Jomenal in his stream. You made scorps, they died, you died. But you died because you are a worse player with bad build orders. I suggest you try to improve, get a good level, make your scorpions, win games by making scorpions, post the games.

You can just write and write all day, putting numbers, stats and everything. But unless you actually succeed with this unit composition in real games with decent enemies, every will mock you.

In any case, mangonels arent even a good choice in huns war, so scorps may actually be useful.
