    Doing alright. I moved down to Brisbane, but I think I told you that a while back.

    Why'd you move over to NYC? It'd be a real change from Aus. Certainly was when I visited.

    Glad to see you back phonics. Guys, you up for a friendly co-op campaign of third age total war 3.2? Heavy on the RPing? Sure, we'll win in the end, but it will be light and fun.

    Man you rushed them hard. Didn't you get rekt by the script spawned armies of hell? I'm taking my Gondor campaing slowly, I want to explore the lategame units and build up megacities of humanity.

    I've awlays gone with the High Elves untill now, but the wood elves, gondor and Rohan are all equally strong in a human's hands. Imba archers or cav stomping the AI's face...

    I have not tried the Dwarves or Dale and I think they would be a challenge, but I think we definitely need a human lead Gondor and either High or Wood elves so that we take care of Saruman quickly.

    I'm down for going with the less popular choices though, so I'll wait on the others for now. I'll advertise this on the other forums too.

    I took Minas Ithil by dodging the garrison script, cavalry, especially General's Bodyguard are very important against Mordor - without them you'll lose. Basically won all my fights through cavalry and sometimes archers as well. Killing the witch kings army was a huge struggle, I had about 2.25/2.5 armies to take him down and still lost a lot of men. The Barad Dur garrison sucked but I got through it eventually. Harad was annoying but I stole a lot of their territories through aggressive raiding and pressure and they couldn't take them back, then I navally invaded them - stole Umbal without fighting the garrison script but fought the one in Amon Gobel - fuck mumakils (also took their last settlement before the extra spawned army could take one back). Basically really aggressive recruiting and pushing eventually led me to bust through, and fight back even though Rhun won an invasion on Barad Dur. Once I crushed Harad my fronts were basically secure and I mopped up the Black Gate and rest of Mordor - then into Mirkwood. Basically enough generals in an army and you can crush wave after wave of Orc.

    Dale is one of my favourite factions, currently doing a campaign on the Massive Overhaul Submod which has been really fun. Absolutely crushed Rhun and now I'm being invaded by Mordor.

    I'd prefer not to play Gondor because I just did a large campaign of them, though they are one of my favourite factions.

    I would prefer not to do Gondor as well since that's what I've spent most of my time with already. I'd be into give Rohan a try though.
