I have been playing dawn of war since it came out in september. I haven't been very good with any other teams in this game except orks. When i started orks i lost a few games, but grew on them just recently. Please rate my strat. Feel free to give any constructive criticisms necessary.
My main ork build
main base builds gretchen squad 2
gretchen squad 1 reinforced and builds waagh banner
slugga squad 1 caps nearest point
gretchen squad 2 reinforced and builds boyz hut
main base builds slugga squad 2 after waagh banner finishes
gretchen squad 1 builds another waagh banner
boys hut builds Big Mek
slugga squad 2 caps nearest points
gretchen squad 2 builds Listening posts over capped locations
main base builds slugga squad 3
After that I continue building listening posts over capped locations and start reinforcing my boyz squads. I send in my 3 slugga squads and Big Mek and destroy enemy listening posts and decap their captured locations. If they are SM/CSM i usually send a squad of the boyz to tie up a squad of marines in close combat while the Big Mek and another squad of boyz kills the commander and/or remaining units.
Usually, I destroy most of the units or sometimes all, but I rarely succeed in killing them all. If I do succeed, I annihilate them 80% of the time. If I fail, I continue my attempt to win by building a pile of guns, another squad of boyz, and a mek shop. Then i proceed to traks. I usually win with the traks 70% of the time. If I fail to do that, I just do awkward builds from there.... because I dont really have any idea on what to do then (this is the spot in which I really need help on improving). Usually I upgrade to orky fort, get more waagh banners, build and reinforce a nob squad, build a killa kan, and get a warboss. I used this strat in a game against an opposing eldar player, which I posted in the section of the forums where you post the replays. Check it out.
I need some tips and hints on what to do after the Trak and boyz rush (if you saw my replay, you'll probably agree :lonely: ) Also give me some tips on anything i can do to improve the first 5-10 minutes of my games, which is a real boodfest!!!:vikingb:
