    This is what it looks like when a former hum player comes back from a 8 month break and plays orc. I'm the orc on with the hum ally.

    I'm curious as to what I should do to improve my build order. I wasn't even trying to micro after the first 5 or 6 minutes which is quite obvious. I didn't even make control groups in this match.

    I am badass with orc, I can probably help you with that.

    I usually do Grubby's order, which is pretty efficient.

    • 4 Peon on Gold, 1 builds altar.
    • Build 2 peons at Great Hall, first one done builds Burrow.
    • Fill the mine, then at 180 gold make barracks, send peons that finish burrow and altar on wood.
    • Get hero at altar, one grunt from Barracks, build 2nd burrow if you can
      (Along the way getting peons of course)
    • At 180 Wood, tech to stronghold, then get a War mill and Voodoo Lounge while constructing.

    You should probably have 5-8 peons on wood by this point. Its a good tech order.
    Afterwards, you do as you please. But you should try to harass and/or pin enemy down with offense.
    Orc is a race that needs to get the better units before they do.

    So basically keep doing what I've been doing.

    I've been working on a DR ghoul rush with UD. I use the BO of

    2 acos to mine
    Que 2 acos
    1 aco summons zig then crypt then sent to mine
    Que another aco
    5th aco summons altar
    que up 2 ghouls
    Summon zig
    Summon shop
    When altar is almost finished I send a ghouls to get the DR

    After that I start making a bunch of ghouls so my tech is late.

    Do you know of one that would be better?

    You are in luck, I may still have some viewable replays when I Ated with Panitude. He did panda/lich and ghouls while I was support with grunts and raiders and other things.

    A tavern run is really just cutting out the wait for a hero by getting an instant one when the time comes. But most of them aren't as effective as one thinks, especially a problem in team games where the Tavern is too far away from a player (Sunken Temple)
