When it comes to Warriors there is only one rule “always have more than your opponent!” Be careful with them and don’t let them die. Use them to your advantage by sending warriors in his defense or in his base each time you Kill ur opponents shaman. If enemies shaman is not inbase your warriors do enormous damage, if you back them up with your shaman and keep lighting enemies shaman as soon as he reincarnates you are sure to win the game quickly.

In games like CR , PP sometimes even in FO it is usual to build more than one Warrior hut.

If you have a lot of warriors you can use any side or BD to your advantage by sending warriors at one side and pressuring the other side with your shaman so your warriors go berserk on his population.

When opponent attacks you with warriors and you aren’t able to defend with your shaman just send a lot of braves in the fight and back them up with FWs, that way warriors get killed with less losses.

Troop and shaman combo

What many new players lack is using Troops and shaman at the same time.
Example in Pressure point you make ca 5 warriors and let them patrol somewhere safe from wheret you can quickly send them into the places you want to attack . Like the mid in PP. When you kill enemies shaman in a shaman fight you should send each warrior in a tower and then walk through the middle with your shaman to cast eq in his base.(instead what noobs do just keep the warriors passive and try to go through with ghosts or cast eq in the towers)
Keep always some warriors near you. If enemy sends 6 FW’s at you they can quite often kill your shaman, having some warriors or better warriors and FWs they would be nothing.

Another thing I see quite often is attacking loads of FW’s and often dying. If that happens to you your shaman value is too low. You should take some FW’s and charge swarm or take warriors and keep blasting the FWs but always keeping your shaman secure.
When you play against Pro players you’ll see how hard it is to kill their shamans and what a relief and pressure decline on you, giving you the opportunity to improve your defense and damage theirs. I’ll try to make an article on shaman Value and how to increase it, thing is ur shaman is more worth than 6 FW’s or casting one EQ, why not wait one second more charge some ghosts cast them(or better take troops) go in securely and cast EQ.

Spreading your Warriors:

1.Click on the edge,
2.Warriors Raise Hands,
3.Use the follower panel to select warriors and send them to different huts.

I got this trick from the video of keith on critical thinking PP

FireWarriors are well explained in the video of prime about advanced defense. you can find the video links here .

Killing shamans with 5 FWs

The technique is very useful but usually you won’t get the opportunity until later in-game and at that time opponents will have Swarm or their troops to counter it. which means that you’ll often use it only after enemies shaman is in ur base or in the mid of your defense.
But what’s important to remember is the basics:
a) Firewarriors firing at the same time cause dramatically more damage than them casting separately.
b) Shift clicking on ground makes FW’s ignore anything around them (as long as they are moving) and that way you can sync them to fire at the same time when you shift click your target.
c) Separating firewarriors to surround enemies shaman and firing at the time he casts his blast that way he gains max damage and it is harder for enemies to spam blast them to death.

3 fws water Push!

This technique is too simple and invaluable in games of CR or others with narrow land and nearby water.
Always when opponent is near water move your FWs near but on the opposite site of water and as he blasts them shift click on his shaman that way they will fire as they are in air and will push enemies shaman into water.
The reason why you fire with FWs after enemy blasts is so he can’t stop the FWs fire push by casting blast.

-Don’t send troops in large groups like 6+ fws together, as everybody would light them. What you can do is copy six warriors and let them staying on a big group, everyone would bite and light the warrior-ghosts.
-Always when opponents casts ghosts select your FW’s and Shift-click opponenets shaman, thatway they ignore the ghosts and attack his shaman.(same with warriors if u want to go past towers to his population)
-If you Shift-Click your opponents shaman while he’s in-range of your towers the FW’s won’t go out and will continuously focus on their shaman and ignoring anything even after he goes out of range and comes back in.
-If you select all your FWs and shift-click opponents shaman and he blasts them the FWs are more likely to blast opponents shaman while going up and or falling down.
-Always divide fws in groups of two and when enemies shaman approaches arrange the groups to blast at the same time.
