Mass Longbows in High Level AoE2 Game!

  • Published: 07 October 2019
  • Longbows were one of my favorite units as a young lad, but they are rarely seen in high level AoE2! Thankfully in this game we see Longbows and the pros and cons of their use in expert 1v1s! I'm a big fan of Metal and Vinch, so this was a blast!

      Longbow spam with decent micro is often a win.

          Am I really the only one bothered by Incas being called a Meso civ

            That was a poor show from brits. Seems he just tried for a blitz there and didn't look at anything else? Raid me once shame on me, raid me 87 times, shame on.. well. Excellent resistance from the red. That's how you do it. Slow withdrawal, acceptable losses, kill their base when they are not looking :)

                      I love Longbows, British,my favorite civ. But you need swordman and Knights to protect your Longbows and Trebuchets. Damn man, place permanent guards in your town! Focus on defending the tiny choke points, leave 10% of your army to defend the small choke points then continue your attack. Yeah this was not civ loss, this was just weak tactics employed.

                          Another reason why pros don't go for niche strats is that they've spent so many hours and repetition on more mainstream ones that even though the niche strat may be the better one for that particular situation the sheer proficiency in mainstream strat will ensure that the pro will still stick to it.

                            Tbh, I have seen an AI spam a little over twice as much longbow men then mbl, even then this was super fun to watch, especially when you start cheering for the underdog Vinch! LETS SEE SOME MORE!!!

                              Good on Metal for giving us a really interesting game where we see every new player's favourite unit used at a high level!

                              I really wish Britons got Thumb Ring! Spirit of the Law found that if they did it would have a huge effect on Longbowmen! Just like I wish Byzantines got Blast Furnace and Bloodlines... Why can't my favourite civs be super OP lol!

                                    Love you T90 but you reaaally dont need to spoil the game by explaining everything that is about to happen immediately before it happens.

                                      What an overall fun game to watch. I gotta admit I was rooting for Vinch the whole way through since Incas are my favorite civ, but it was nerve-wracking to see those Longbows look like they were gonna win Metal the game.

                                                                                          so WHYYYY not invest like 15 secs of your time and 100-200 stone to really, REALLY seal your economy? it would have won the game. i say this because i find it such a shame, it was such a BEAUTIFUL game and to be lost due to something as.... well, triggering - and frankly as unneeded as lack of walling.

He had no clue about the northern rebuild and that the raids were coming from there until it was too late.
