    I think we deserve a replay thread where we post some of our best, worst, funniest or weirdest replays just for fun, so here it is.

    I will start by posting a replay of a game I had yesterday and I'll also post the link of said replay on youtube (sorry for the quality and brightness, any tips are welcome). I recorded it with fraps and edited with Sony Vegas and reduced the file size (it had 2gb in mp4 format) with handbrake.

    I know I didn't play really well on that map (especially after watching the replay), I think I should've been more active with the rest of my team, instead of focusing solely on the strategy I inteded to do. Regardless, it was a fun match with that little twist at the end where we got lucky ^^.

    Here's the link for you to download the replay:

    Here's the link for you to watch it on YouTube:

    Loved it, although the Horde did a really poor job of protecting the Portal, especially against such a telegraphed attack. If Blackrock falls, you have to leave a significant force to guard the Portal.

    And fyi, siege attacks do no damage versus Thrones, Blackrock or the Portal, so next time bring Knights or Crossbowmen!

    Excellent thread Drisden. Good game that one you posted lol. I'll post 2 of my own:

    1st is a game I played as Danath after being inspired by Bronze's counterattacking:
    http://www.4shared.com/file/b00E6ZGNce/Danath_early_defence_and_distr.html

    2nd is a rollface game of me playing Zuljin after Tentacle said he needs a buff. The item build I tried was pretty ridiculous, was planned for 3 bronze swords at end game but horde won before I had time to buy the 3rd:

    Thank you for watching hope you enjoy =D

    EDIT: fixed replay link

    Indeed and ty! :)
    I realised on that game that they didn't do any damage (checked Blackrock and Portal's armor) but by time I had those catas, I was originally planning to tp to Ironforge, but when I saw, green landed his troops and started attacking the Horde so I picked them up and sent them on move to the Dark Portal and tp'ed with whatever I had on the first unit that reached the portal.

    Ty for the replays, Synegg. I'll be definitely watching them.

    EDIT: Synegg, for some reason it seems your Zul'jin replay is not available for download =(

    Great idea, though is there a way you could fix those graphics? :D

    Aside from that, I would love to see some replays and livecasts of CotH, I really would like to see how other people play.

    The graphics were ok, but quality was lost while I was compressing the file and rendering it =(
    If you got any ideas how to best render it while keeping a reasonable file size, please do tell me! I may even begin doing what you just mentioned if only I knew how to best render for YouTube without having 46gb files (that 24 minutes replay was originally 46gb in size after I had finished recording with fraps).

    As promised here is my Killrogg replay. First game of Killrogg I have played in about a month. Got shut down pretty early by a good alliance squad and had brown and dg feeding a lot but Kiljaeden carried us through the mid game. Enjoy the carnage!

    I don't know how to convert from w3g D: Do you know how?
    I think it's mainly the exp. Errr just check the replays and you can tell within like 5 minutes, if I can get them up... And also maybe too much passive IP.
    And hard to say about Killrog right now since Alliance got overbuffed I think.

    Just upload them on any file sharing site and send us the link to download it. All we must do is place the replay in the replay folder and watch it on Warcraft III

    I like seeing COTH on Youtube, so that is always my preference, but uploading them here is second best.

    You can email them to me at thebronzeknee@gmail.com

    I am watching the replay Synegg uploaded and just wanted to state the follow.

    Turaylon is level 5 in Azeroth with 2613 XP points when Synegg comments on his level. We are 5 minutes into the game and heroes get 85 XP a minute, so only 425 of that is from XP gain. I'm not saying it isn't too much, but Turaylon was leveled far ahead of Killrogg because of XP from kills and units dying, not the passive XP bonus (which effects all sides equally). All four Horde players were attacking Stormwind, so Turaylon was in the right place at the right time.

    The slaughter of Dreadnaughts at 45 minutes when the Alliance had done everything right at sea was fun to watch. If Teal brings just one Frigate along, he doesn't lose 14 Battleships to the 20 Subs DG makes.

    That Turalyon comment I made mainly out of frustration as horde was floundering at Stormwind. I am completely fine with the early game exp bonus. My issue with the passive exp gain is at the end of the game not the start. In 18.9 I see many alliance heroes reach level 16-20 easily, whereas in previous versions they would be more 11-16, with only the good players getting much more than that.

    In the end it was a mistake for me to attack Stormwind as it focused all their heroes but I think that game horde was already in a difficult position as alliance heroes were fed to be on par with horde heroes right from the start. The situation might have been slightly better if I went north after coming back from my toilet break, but an early game Killrogg with just 1 horde colour going north is not going to achieve much.

    I think the XP is too much for the Alliance, and is going to be toned down. There is too many IP points floating around the Alliance too.

    I think I should have left the IP alone focused solely on the XP part.

    I didn't really see much wrong with Killrogg, sure he does tons of damage at points, but so would Orgrim, Blackhand, Maim or Grom. At 15 minutes he goes in to Lordaeron and dies after doing a bunch of damage. He revives and finishes off Grey at 12 minutes, but it is only units and Khadgar, again any of the other mentioned heroes would have cleaned house too (and Killrogg almost dies in that fight at 12 minutes too...).

    At 6:15 he goes into Gilneas and with just about a full build wrecks a bunch of units and Turalyon, Khagar and Kael with KJ trailing in support. Again, not exactly shocking given the circumstances. He kills a running away Galen early in the fight, that was the best chance Alliance had to stop Killrogg was to use Disarm and focus him. Kael also doesn't banish him which could have allowed Khagar, Kael and Turaylon to focus their spells on him. A full build Blackhand would have wrecked them just the same. If Alleria and Magni were there, and he soloed them all too, I would have been worried. Magni had almost 5k hp and a Dragonscale Sheath.

    The only thing that Killrogg maybe needs is making him take extra damage when Bloodrage is active. Sure he is strong late, and he is really good at chewing up a bunch of units alone, but he isn't good early and isn't tanky. Kael banishes him at the very end and does tons of damage to him. If Magni was in that last fight, or Galen with Disarm, Killrogg would have been finished. Instead he comes out on top.

    Good game though.

    I am highly concerned with this statement. Please post a replay with those heroes if you truly think this. The point of Killrogg is that he kills heroes at least twice as fast as any other horde melee hero. I guarantee Grom cannot do this. Orgrim also falls off significantly versus heroes in the late game. Blackhand is the closest but he would still struggle. Somehow you just don't seem to get it... just do the maths... I guess I will have to personally destroy you with Killrogg for it to click lol.
