Attacking Ability by Race
21:57:19 Dec 4th 17 - HorusPanic (Sir Panic):

Was just thinking about the races and their ability to get shit done on the battle field. I wound up ranking (1=bad through 5=great) the races through each phase of an era. Then plotted it because why not.

Just something from my personal opinion and fun for discussion. (where X axis is early-mid-late game)

Halfers would stand 4 early, as ponies are fast (cheap).

Orcs would get 3 mid game. If you are still fighting since early, maybe 4. If you are farming, 3 for sure.

I do remember this, but it was static and did not do the early-mid-late thing... plus hasn't been dusted off in 8 years...

First of all to put it more fairly, you have to put it in a context in which all these races are investing the same amount in income throughout the era. Secondly this would not be able to reflect fighting ability unless it takes into account AOTD. Then you also have to take account if its offensive, or defensive power your talking about. For example a dwarf probably has the highest defence mid era. But late era anyone can chain aotd that strong defence off the map. I would also say theres other things on Aishas such as dwarf having weak magic isnt completely true. We may have weak magic attack but in comparison to everyone else and the number of troops we carry. In general dwarf has a stronger magic defence then all races except elf. 

In other words I dont think there is a graph or table that can fit all these variable into something as broad as attacker capabilities. But both do reflect many of the truths of the game.

Playing dwarves always has felt like a bit of a slow burn, so I can agree with that.

Orcs OOP always did make me nervous

i agree with most of justains points tbh.
Dwarf should probably go 2 early and 4 mid if you count them being into a kingdom bc hammer spam.
a mid era dwarf can probably pull out 1/2x that of a mid era pony spam with hammers, with a KD again. (also mid era when i was last playing is like 25 days so advents would be a problem but by day 20 with an active STGer a dwarf could finish 2/3 90k's so could handle even a aotd orc at day 25/30 atleast enough to slow it down)
so halfer being 5 mid era fully depends on his early game

then also you have to account for the player playing them lol
like my orc would be binh (also any other race except dwarf bc ive never seen him play that, also does binh still play or is he actually wifed off now :P )
Mage would be Lew,
moral support would be bran
Dwarf ofc my mann justainius
lil b!tch would be stew <3
Elf as much as i hate MAD for the last era's i played would be my guy anon <3 (or mcmax when fully active.. seen him do some good stuff)

I cba thinking about anyone for the other races... but you get my drift...
good chart though :P
