I was wondering if there were any Longbeard out there, who could possibly enlighten a younger beardling, such as myself.
I mostly play friendly games, with a small amount of terrain on the battlefield. This means that rules about the terrain, rarely comes in to question. But after watching several battle reports, I started wondering why some people place their War Machines in rivers, buildings etc.
The only experience I have is that it's good to place cannons on hills, giving them the opportunity to see most of the battlefield. Likewise you could place the anvil / bunkers behind hills, so the opponent can't target them due to bad visibility.
I see there are a lot of different threads discussing the pros and cons in selecting different War Machines. Continued by a debate of what runes are worth taking, whilst which ones are not. I would like to request a guide to properly place these expensive units.
I hope it doesn't come of as a silly request, but I seriously think that a guide like this wouldn't only benefit me, but also any future beardling - who might wonder the exact same thing.
Some of the things I wonder about is why you'd place - say a cannon - inside a building or a river?
- What's the positive effects of this? - And the negative?
I'd really appreciate any help I could get on this subject. Thanks in advance to all of you who took time to participate, in this quest for enlightenment
