To bad you don´t have a good screen of the brakental fort walls. Big deciding point for me to is how their stronghold will look.
I don't have that stronghold any more, but I believe I might have a walled shot somewhere on my pc of an earlier town. If not, I'll post you a screenshot of the Brakental menu screen.

Will the menu screen pix be attainable for strongholds or would they be considered eye candy only?

Yeah, Brakental has its advantages, but still when they´r under siege they won´t only suck bad, but with the worst walls of the 3 areas you´ll really have a hard time winning that fight.

Orc walls may not be the sturdiest but when those spiked gates come crashing down, your attacker is in for a world of hurt.

Reading this after reading the human ones makes orcs seem like a weaker race.

Brakental has Beefy units which is what orcs are about, but at the same time being on foot i'd assume even with the speed bonuses they're slower than mounted units. I could see their strength being totally negated by archer micromanagement and cavalry routing tactics. Add to that their inferior defenses and town layouts, I could see them getting harassed to no end, especially by cavalry armies. Add to that their lack of ability in sieges and life seems very questionable for these orcs.

Flattan Rol seems fairly well balanced but also like they could easily fall behind enemies in research putting them too far below in technology, which could be devastating. It seems like they'd need a healthy trade agreement set up with Brakental orcs at the very least. But they seem okay

Thikken Dal seem like half elf half human, they have ranged, but could they really stand up to elves? They have good defenses to go with the archers, but as the designated "siege orcs" would they have meaty enough armies to withstand something like human cavalry bearing down on their siege position?

In short, Brakental seems like a high level of difficulty, and possibly inferior as a race against skilled players. Flattan Rol moderate difficulty, but not up to spec with something like humans, still it could be a good balance. Thikken Dal seems like orcs that couldn't quite cut it as elves but easy difficulty to play.

That being said, i'm thinking Brakental (but I really despise the thought of not being able to compete with skilled players), or Flattan Rol where I think I can compete with dedication. Thikken Dal just seems like an Elven nightmare.

It's hard to tell without factoring everything like the base strength of the units etc. so maybe i'm way off here, only 1 way to find out.

I´m actually wondering. in Brakental you hardly have ranged capabilities because of the area they are in. doesn´t that also mean that attacking ranged units will get a debuff in that particular area? because that way Brakental would still be able to at least offer a sort of suitable defense.

althought yes brakental is more offensive then it is defense, but say if elven players would attack brakental orcs, who have the best archers in-game, while brakental has no ranged capabilities at all, lets just say that it would getting really messy on the orc side

Thumbs up

Desert Orcs all the way!! They seem like the way an orc army should operate.
They might not be the best fortress builders, but why wait for the fight to come to you, when you can go to them and take what you need?

ooh but winning the battles will be all the sweeter then It's not fun to have it too easy I'll just have to micromanage my army as hell to compensate for the lack of archery, go behind enemy lines and flank them etc etc, atleast they got decent cavalry :/
