I'm with you there. I like to watch some of the strategies. There was one time a friend and I teamed up for some 2v2. I did my defensive line thing and he built the army to go and pound them. They kept throwing themselves against my line and only got through once just to meet his army. After every attack he'd go out and just whittle them down. I doubt we were playing hardcore gamers though.
How good were the pros?
