Okay I stole this orc strat off a tillerman replay and copied it to my needs. 3 peons to gold 1 to build burrow 1 to build altar que 4 rally wood wait until you get enough wood upgrade to stronghold, get BM. When enuf gold get warmill build more burrows Creep with BM and build 2 towers (now crossroads) build 2 of either spirit lodge or beastiary (up to you) Research upgrades, get 2nd hero, upgrade to fortress. 3rd hero mass units. I normally go docs and even tho the heros don't sound like much strength they do enuf dmg and back up with the doc really destories people Counters: Most early rushes (not hero), good planned tower rush, many tier 3 units.
