As an Ork...how do you deal with a really aggressive Eldar?
The other night, I played 3 matches in 1v1s. One against a top 150 (I think) Eldar, and two matches against the same rank 4 Eldar. I think I'm rank 380 something Ork lol. I only get one or two nights a week to play... anyway, both Eldar used nearly the exact same builds...
Anyway. My usual builds go like this...early tower and boyz hut near my generator on Mork's mire or maybe a dakka hut for lootas and boyz combo. The last 2 matches were on Charon's Rest where I do a similar build near the bottom node, or in the center high ground close to my side.
Both Eldar players built a bonesinger and two DAs to start, adding a third DA soon after. One bonesinger builds a forward webway gate and the other captures points, building req gens on them...by 2:30 a warrior portal is done and DRs come out followed by a single banshee to pair with Scorpions at around 4 min.
This build seem unstoppable as an ork...my boyz trade poorly with DAs who grenade, outrun and once the shield is down on a squad I need to back off because the models I lost are too much. Even if I am 1:1 ratio on boyz to DAs. If I get a shoota or loota out, bonesingers easily tie them up and I end up having to run them around like crazy just to try and get a single shot off. DRs support fire once out, and any towers I proc get focused by Scorpions and banshee squad. The only way I can remotely claw back from this is destroy the webway or get a good stormboy suicide bomba on DAs. But, typically this has ended my game within 5-8 min.
I don't claim to be good and I know I am outclassed in both skill and experience with these opponents, but the absolute defeat I have received 3 times in a row has really killed my confidence to play this game 1v1 competitively. It is the first I have experience such total defeat in this game. I felt helpless. One of the games on Charon's Rest ended with Macha coming out early with elite gen up (this was around 9 min) and alone with macha, scorpiions, banshee, couple DRs and handful of DAs melted my boyz, gen, and turret and before I even had to option to surrender.
What can Orks really do against this? If I defend my buildings, the opposite shield gen gets attacked. If I displace my army to respond, my buildings or opposite shield gen get attacked. One game I tried to send stormboyz out to harrass points, and I just couldn't because DAs chased him around and banshees charged in with scorpions, silence from their scream prevented me from jumping out. I just don't know how to respond to this.
