    Yes. i don't use the footmen because they are so damn weak and have very little damage. I use riflemen and rush to Keep to get Spell-Breakers. I use Paladin for my first hero.

    There are 2 ways to play early game with human race :
    - some footmens and AM so you can creep fast and FE or go fast tech ( T2 )
    OR
    -riflemans + Paladin ( second skill you be aura ). Becuz of the cost of the riflemans you will have to stay a little bit longer on T1. after T2 make sure to make some sorcess and priest + spealbreakers to tank.

    It honestly depends on who you are playing against. Example: Against archers, you might want to get footmen. Against UD, I would rather get rifles. It's entirely up to you of course and what you're comfortable with but every unit has their pros/cons. I go rifles more often than not in 4s RT because it is funner and easier.

    Spell-Breakers have Medium Armor, which reduces Piercing Attacks( Which is the attack type of Archers ). They also have have more then twice the HP of Archers, and when I am fighting Orcs, I use tons of Dragon Hawks and Gryphons. I fog their towers and then storm-hammer them to death.Against the Undead, I am also heavy on Dragon Hawks, as Frost Whryms and Gargoyles are annoying when their attacking my Priests and Gryphons. I use my Knights and Spell-Breakers and Heroes(Usually a Mountain King and an Archmage) to keep the Crypt fiends from getting near.I often practice on Computer Bots, and I have detected possible bugs on the Human and Night Elf AI-Sometimes, the Humans don't upgrade to Keep until 30 minutes or more to the game, and it makes things easy for me..And after, a period of time the Night Elves cease all activity unless if their attacked.
