    So i was in a battle today (Hu vs Ud). The Ud did a necrofiend combo. He had around probably 8 necros, so i basicly got raped by skeles, and i couldnt rly bring much air b/c he just took them down the the crypt fiend's net. How do i repel this?

    Hu air is only effective when you have knights in there or you have more grys/hawks than he does fiends.

    You need to focus on some dispel in order to stop the necro skeletons. The necs themselves can be killed easily by rifles, or frag shard armed morts.

    Towers and expand are made BEFORE you do everything else, at tier1, ud may be tier 3 and you can be still tier 1 massing towers. I start new accounts and win vs ud every time.

    a replay would be nice... but ill say what i can.

    basically,

    1) morts with frag shards will own necs
    2) foots w/ defend can absorb fiend damage for a long time (1344 eHP vs piercing)
    3) blizzard + thunderclap will destroy all skelies (if u want u can go panda second, not a bad idea at all actually).
    4) priest/sorc/breaker support (even if he has destroyers, he'll be too busy microing his necs (LOL!) to devour the slow...)

    just make sure u micro correctly. i.e. morts shooting necs / foots positioned correctly / spells always on cooldown... etc.

    also bring invul pots for ure heroes to avoid instagg.

    i gotta be honest, i use slow all the time, especially before the UD hits tier3, the slow + mk + breakers gives u a HUGE advantage over UD's measly tier 2 (lich + stats), if hes a devour pro, then i just use sorcs for invis (damn UD heronuke)...

    When I ATed with Impactor, he did. He would even invis my own men when he had the chance. But unless you have some methods of Destroyer control, as you said: You are better off using Sorcs as microists via invis.

    I think you should make some make dispel and some towers, you can also focus on hawks and knights they will certainly get you protection

    I think I used Necro Fiend more than anyother strategy, so the best possible counter to it would be Priests (spam dispel) and Morts (The kill necro horribly, also when they kill something, it dosen't leave a corpse, IE no skellys) also, AoE Heros really help

    Another option is to make it so the necros are constantly moving and not standing still in one place. Morts and AOE can do this.

    Necros cannot cast spells or attack while mobile. They are basically useless themselves while moving.

    I've once got away with defeating a necro mass with another player just by using 2 wardens. The player had to constantly move his necros to avoid getting Fan of Knived. In the end, nothing escaped - not even the hero.
