I've got up through WA and Eldar is my race of choice. By far the best rushing race in the game.
Your approval fills me with shame.

Are you really sure about that? Cause as far as I can tell, Eldar are pretty weak untill you tech them up a bit.

Fire Prisms are their only real power unit...prefer the Guard for rushing, myself.

Aren't the Orks supposed to be the spam/rush race?
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

Possibly, but their voices just annoy me. I end up yelling at my units.

"Boss! We'z gettin' shot up!"
"I DON'T FUCKING CARE!"

...Yes, I know.

Nice to know I'm not the only one who tends to argue out loud with my units... this goes for pretty much any game, btw. :P

I don't argue, so much as scold them.

Well, through WA Eldar were nice on the whole teleport to random spots and lay down turrets on the req points. Or, on smaller maps, right outside the enemy base. Now I hate Eldar in DC, not least because some moron decide to give their leader person a new voiceover that sounds HORRIBLE. I mean, poor inflection, wrong emotions at the wrong times... ugh. And the playstyle...

I still hate Imperial Guard and Orks more. I also have never played Chaos. I love Tau but hate that they don't have an actual turret defense. However, 10 squads of elite bodyguard Firewarriors + line of sight is beyond deadly to most anything that gets in their range. And you don't even want to witness the evil of 20 stealthed scout squads jetpacking into your base from out of nowhere with fully upgraded guns. And then there's the infinite drone army technique...

I also like Necrons, except they strike me as more of a melee race than a ranged race... part of why I liked the Eldar, even though I tend to favor ranged to melee...

How about 10 sentinels?

I love just building loads of tier 2 imp vehicles and swamping people with them...well, the computer. People do't usually let me do that.
