Where is your defense partner?
Wise russian told us not to use mechanical units and I am merely following his advice.
Where is your dps? Do you expect mech and tanks to have high dps? This first wave looks like shit.
4 mech , 2 gold tanks max is what i have and I wont add more ... rest engineers, rockets and deadyes
If someone can beat your first wave therefore he will beat the rest of it. Once i tried to take out dwarf garrison full of engineers, rockets, deadeyes and not a single mechanical unit... I could finish it but didn't because i wasnt killing anything to justify my casualties.
Try to imagine your garrison in advance... just pumping gold in it doesn't guarantee anything. We all know garrisons are like this...
Human is even easier and you can bronze it to death.
So far you only proove that dwarfs can't be taken out for free
Humans cost nothing to lose garrison. No human would die from a race of entire native units off of their research terrain, and on humans grassland so easily. You can not choose what your garrison deploys. There is no way to spend mithril except Mech and Cannons. There is no way to spend blood diamonds except deadeyes and tanks. If he clicked virion res like everyone else, the losses would have possibly been zero. That is not a good fight.
Your advice would mean sitting on 100k's of blood diamonds and mithril, and losing everything if two attacks happen at the same time. That is nonsensical and I think you know it.
And, when the garrison is breached, you would still lose 30k+ in rares (not to mention the plunderable rares you can never spend with your made-up strategy), when it is impossible for the non-dwarf attacker to lose anything similar.
I strongly suspect you are not a particularly powerful or competent player, so your context-less anecdote doesn't really serve a purpose when I am presenting you evidence of a nearly maxed researched dwarf garrison dying on tundra in it's best case scenario.
This is a garrison being defended. Further, your suggestion to be defended would only serve to have "too many tanks and deadeyes and mechs" in the garrison like you stated. I don't understand the contradiction of ideas you are presenting. Unless you suggest I delete my garrison and move onto grassland or desert to be defended by other races - which is probably the only reasonable course for dwarf. Hence the problem.
