Re: GitP WarCraft 3: The Frozen Throne group
When the game starts you are presented with 2 taverns in which to pick a race. The left tavern is filled with the "easier" races to play while the right is the "hard" races. Whether a race is hard or not to play often depends on the amount of gold it requires to play well. Lumber is acquired through having your builder or workers chop trees and return it to one of your shacks, there are however 2 races that gather lumber via the Night Elf method, which is to say it does not require a return and is magically added to your stockpile. Gold on the other hand must be stolen from the center of the map. The titan has constant vision of this area making it a constant danger to get gold.
Every race can be described by the resources it needs to base, and whether or not it can base. Almost every "hard" race requires gold to base adequately and has a means to quickly and effectively acquire lumber.
This builder has some of the highest lumbering capabilities in the game. This combined with its flexibility makes this race fun to play, but hard to master. This builder does not have traditional workers, instead they work like Night Elves wisps, which is to say once you put them on a tree the do not have to return to a shelter to drop off their cargo, they also gather at higher rates then normal workers, starting at the standard 10 but it can get increased to 20 and high with upgrades. While, strictly speaking, this builder does not require gold to base it really shines when it does. Radioactive towers are all upgradeable to multiple types, like frost (for slow) rapid (for DPS) magic (for mana burn) and Overload (for buffing and high DPS). The only real downfall of this race is its lackluster walls which, even once upgraded, do not stand up to most other walls in the game. A fully upgraded "rainbow" radio base is truly a glory to behold. This builder has a constant immolation type effect that damages all nearby titans; he also has an 8 second invulnerability that is useful in a pinch.
