    Best race is really hard to term, depends on what you want to do.

    Humans are great to rush with, NE never run out of wood, orc units are more powerful, but more expensive, and Undead summon buildings.

    I personally prefer Humans, but that's just because I've practised with them.

    the only thing that mutilates bears from humans are gryphons or polymorph.
    and if you're not good enough to spam some roar, breakers ( if you spam roar they will waste all their mana in like 3 seconds, and you're free to use rejuv w/o being stolen)
    but that's why u rush humans =)
    yes, dragon hawks mutilates chims... but be intelligent, add a dark ranger to your army please, silence those hawks and rape the human kthx =)
    i guess you NEVER though of that :p

    That is why you get hippos to either kill the hawks or be the bait for aerial shackles.

    But its difficult to do that since most people would go chippos with that strategy (chims and hippos).

    Not if they have more hippos than your hawks (which is usually the scenario in many games). Also, for some people, foolish and don't target prioritize properly (net the chims > hippos).

    Won't work. The will phase shift, and be slaughtered the moment they come back. They can help you destroy casters, big time!

    Oh did I mention that we assume all strategies are against 2on2 or solo players ONLINE and that cheat is for the
    WRONG! game.

    Mass choppers are great when you have Flak Cannons and maxed upgrades. That low damage can multiply doom with many. However, magic damage units may have some advantage over you.

    No, its called whosyourdaddy!

    Besides, if any race could be introducted: Naga > all.

    However, this question has many answers, all races have something great about them. Its just a matter of how the player uses the strength

    LOL joke or? You realize aurua of infinite mana and his infinite mana pool and considering he only casts water elementals.. It's pointless to burn him well he runs around.. IMMO OWNS THE ****ING HELL OUT OF BURN When it comes to human matches. And mana potions arn't expensive and he'll prob buy 2 if he gets his almost unstopable fast expand one lost temple or that new gay undead map that I played one. (fountain of mana and health right by starting points ****ing ridiculos) and plunder. I haven't played in about 3 months ^_^

    Did you ever take into consideration lvl 1-3 fighting or fighting people that don't have mana recovery items or auras? Cause it sounds to me like you didn't. Mana burn rocks, take off mana to prevent skills from being used against you plus burns to hp. All you need to do is use 50 mana of your own to deal 50-150 mana damage to the enemy!

    Besides, you burn 150 mana. Then he needs to use 75-125 to cast a spell! Then 150 him again, bye bye most of his mana. If he tries to mass teleport, kill him or entangle roots with your kotg or break the channel and kill him!

    Lv 12 matches if he's tanking with an AM he deserves to lose. And I don't know how many games I managed to win where it comes down to lv 1 hero's.. And at lv 3 if you arn't at tier 2 yet with human or have a fast expo learn to play...
