    well by having a workshop, it gives you an incentive to bring out the big guns such as tanks later on :p

    well in groups of like 30 you can decimate bases in seconds.

    lol gyros are ezily countered tho, archers or starfall from potm

    or FoK

    so.. massing them wont really do much unless enemy doenst have anti air.

    also, scoouting would be more appropriate.

    well i find it exciting to just try out new strats that prolly suck on my friend... (he isnt very good.. like me:)) anyway its always nice to try a mass tank and mortars and hope you kill their base before anything really bad happens.

    most of the time it wont work against anyone who has a clue whats going on.

    i didnt mean using them to attack, i meant having just one to counter true sight and keeping it out of harms way.

    omg stop with these gyros.Yes they can destroy buildings but they work if it is vs orcs with mass wyvs or bats ,you can own these units and the main hall which is very important part of your win but any UD or hum or NE units can own them before you can destroy the main building

    i would only get alot of gyros (24 is alot for me outside of ffa) against orc or human only because undead's base will own your gyros (citadel and zigs) and one NE archer can take them all out.

    Archers take half the damage from siege attacks. So they and riflemen can take gyros down pretty easily.

    I told you once i owned 20 gyros, upgraded with bombs with 5 rifles.

    But indeed they can own bats.. however the unstable concosion or whatever it is takes gyros down like flys

    No one would mass gyros in a serious match imo. People do it just for fun.

    yeah the only reason they should be built is if you just so happen to have a siege factory...and you only build 1 for true sight and scouting

    They used to be amazing against Air in ROC!!! Tehy used to own all air!!!DAMN it
